So, I told you guys before (in this post) about how my mom is telling me to wait wait wait wait to have kids….
Well, on the other side of town, John’s mom and sister…they think we’re already trying!!
John said he didn’t tell them that we were and that they’re just “baby crazy” (i don’t know anyone like that..::looking down::)
OK so let me tell you the story:
At St. Patrick’s Day dinner we enjoy a nice meal (corned beef, cabbage, potato, cole slaw, rye bread, yummmmy) and then everyone heads to the living room to be lazy.
When MIL and SIL and I were alone in the kitchen clearing up, they circled and swooped in on me!
It was actually really cute because SIL is SUPER dramatic and animated, but she doesn’t realize she is. It’s great! She waved me over emphatically (I was literally 3 steps away lol) and started asking about my period regularity/frequency….I tried my best to hide my shock….I don’t know how well I did.
She had some difficulties conceiving so I’m sure this is where her concern is coming from. She said, in the most serious tone ever, with the most gripping eye contact: “You’re turning 30 this year right? Are you charting? Don’t wait! The books all say you should try for a year and then see the doctor. Don’t! See him after 6 months of trying OK? Because you’re 30 this year! OK?!”
All the while MIL had her cute little self perched nearby just nodding along with such a concerned face.
I had to just say “OK.” and nod furiously at both of them.
After that serious note, MIL pops up from her seat and says (loudly), “Two young healthy kids like you…., you two will be pregnant before you say boo!” and walks away.
Little do they know, we’re not trying for a little while. But I will totally take SIL’s advice and see a doc if 6 months of trying garners no positive pregnancy tests.
