We're due with #4 in February and I'm getting the usual round of questions:
"Are you crazy?"
"Don't you know what causes that?"
"Are you getting your tubes tied with this one?"
"Are you trying for another boy?" (I have 1 boy and two girls)
"Don't you think there's enough people in the world?"
"Are you trying to start your own compound?" (we live in northern Idaho)
And the nasty comments:
"Wow, you're never going to get anything done!"
"I could never do that, my (one two whatever) make me totally crazy!" (usually right in front of their children)
I guess I'm curious what you've said to people because these questions came up with I was pregnant with #3 as well. I'm tired of people saying the same dumb things over and over and the really rude ones make me want to sock them (ok, I'm 35 weeks pregnant and crazy but still).
Any good ideas to return these perhaps politely but with an edge? I've used "Bless heart, whyever would you say that?" but I'm also getting angry with people who insist on discussing my sex life with me without even knowing my name!
