Putting up with nosy family and friends

Some people are good at putting their foot in it and frequently they're the ones closest to you. Your mother or mother-in-law may be impatient for grandchildren, putting her foot in it when she asks: 'And when are you two going to stop thinking about yourselves and start having a family?' The best man at your wedding may put his foot in it when he says 'About time you got her pregnant, mate' (nudge-nudge, wink-wink). And your best friend may put her foot in it when she says 'Now that I'm pregnant, why don't you have a baby too, so we can do this together?' (as if you weren't already trying!).

People spout such insensitive and intrusive comments without realising that they can be very hurtful. Unless you're prepared to explain all about your pregnancy difficulties, perhaps you can get them to pull their heads in by saying something like 'Well, these things don't always happen easily' or 'We'll let you know just as soon as it happens'.

That is why most women find out that they are pregnant only after one month of pregnancy.
