It think it's fine, it's just funny because you are openly admitting to doing it all the time. HA

people can talk about whatever they want to share. when you make an announcement like that you can set yourself up for alot of annoying inquiries if it's taking a long time.

:rotfl: @ Jen. Personally, I think it's a bad idea to even say you're trying because people will constantly ask "any luck yet?". If it's taking you a while to get pregnant, the questions will only add to the stress.

Not really tacky, but if you end up having problems conceiving, then everyone would know about it. And that would be sad. :(

I also can't stand hearing that a loving couple are trying to create a life. Also, I wish people wouldn't get married because don't we all know they're going to have sex that night!?!? Also, honeymoons are out because I'm pretty sure the couple will be having sex and that just skeeves me out. I prefer it when couples don't live together, but if they must then they really should have separate bedrooms or else that's just gross. :oy:

I think it's fine, if asked - why not answer? Also, I'm with Greggie, when 'we' get pregnant, then we'll say 'we're pregnant'. Pregnancy is something that you are in together. You make the child together, you raise the child together -- you are in it together!

I think that it is totally appropriate. It's not as though they were trashy enough so say exactly what they are trying, they are just leting thier fans know that they are planning to have a family in the near future..and I think that's great. Also, I agree w/ greggie..why even ask the question? But if it's asked why not answer truthfully and w/ class??

I don't see anything wrong with telling family and friends that you are going to start trying. However, I don't agree that telling the whole world. Like someone else said, "Unfortunately, sometimes you can't get pregnant on your own, or is takes a long time. All you need when you go another month without getting pregnancy is someone asking if there is any news." and that is exactly right!

its the same as saying "yes! we are. we are boning like crazy right now" just sits wrong with me.

BTW, the girl in the picture, Scott Wolfe's wife, is Kelly from The Real World New Orleans. Just a fun fact.

I'm with Greggie's last statement. I think its rude in the first place to ask a couple about having a baby.

I love when people share that kind of info.

I think asking the question in the first place is what's inappropriate, not necessarily answering it. Why do people think it's ok to ask when and if couple are going to have kids, celebrities or not?

It's nobody's business. People can assume what they like.

Sorry. We use "we're pregnant" because we're in it together. He probably suffers more than I do when pregnant, since a lot of responsibility falls on him when I'm unable to move.

I don't have babies and I don't ever want them but I had to comment on this when I saw it on PopSugar. This is gross. I hate people that say things like that. Nobody wants to know that you've gone off the pill and are having sex like crazy rabbits trying to get sperminated. I also hate when they say "we're pregnant" like the man is also carrying the baby in his uterus. Sickening.

I don't like to talk about either. I just don't think it's inapproriate to state the general information.

Personally, I like to keep that information between me, my husband, and my doctor. Likewise, I don't ask about other couples' baby business either. I'm speaking only for myself, not for anybody else.

My husband & I have been married 5 months and people started asking us when we were going to have kids right after the wedding. Our standard response to non-"family" is "we are haveing fun practicing..." Our families, this includes our close friends, know that we have been trying for 8 months now so they (excluding one very annoying grandmother) know better than to ask as it really doesn't go over well. (And, yes, we started trying before the wedding...)

I thought it was okay - I got pregnant pretty quick but miscarried, twice. It becomes hard for you and for the people around. I was tired of - well now you can try again (when the doctor recommended time had past). The third time (I'm 4 months) I just told people we would take a break from trying and didn't announce until 14 weeks. It is exciting but I caution people who want to share from the get go ..

Whatever someone wants to share (or not share) about wanting a baby or trying for a baby is fine. What do you expect if you ask the question, which I'm assuming OK mag did.

On the other hand, if you don't say anything and then turn up pregnant, everyone assumes it was unplanned and unwanted.

I would warn people not to make statements like this. Unfortunately, sometimes you can't get pregnant on your own, or is takes a long time. All you need when you go another month without getting pregnany is someone asking if there is any news. If you tell people you are trying, they will keep asking about it.
