'THAT' question

You know, the one the comes up after this,
"How old is your daughter now?" says a random person
"Over 2 now" we answer.
Then comes 'THAT' question...
"When are you going to have another one?"

I have to add here that since we moved 2 years ago, most people don't know everything we went through to get Ella. I can't be offended by people being curious, unless it's coming from someone who DOES know better (which, of course, HAS happened).

Back to the 'conversation'...
Our answer, every time (without even talking about it with each other) is:
"Whenever Heavenly Father sends one down".
It's not up to us, never really has been. We're doing what we can, talked to the Dr., I'm taking the pills I need to when I need to. We'll get our next baby when we're supposed to, I/we have faith in that.

So, if you're one of the curious people out there, now you have your answer and we'll all be in limbo for a bit together.

Thank you! I was JUST ABOUT to badger you with that terribly rude insensitive question. Kidding, of course. I know your pain of receiving that question all too well - except mine comes when they ask, "HOW long have you been married? SIX YEARS?! Isn't it about time for some babies???" I, like you, am very honest with the answer. "We're trying!" And sometimes it puts people in their place, and other times, those rude, insensitive people just keep going, "Oh really? I was only married one year when I had my son. What are you doing? You know what you need to do? RELAX. That happened to my sister, she just learned to relax and then got pregnant." AH! Sorry for the tangeant, it's a heated topic for me lately. :) Best wishes! Your faith is an inspiration.

No matter what anybody's circumstances are, that question is always bad manners. It's nobody's business but your own!
You have an adorable family!

I'm sorry people are so rude and insensitive. I got the question the other day, and constantly lately. It really hurts when people don't understand how hard it was for you just to get one baby here.

People can be so rude. Hang in there. I hope it's sooner than later for you guys. Good luck with everything and I hope you're doing well! I think about your often :)
