I''m sure this has been discussed on here before; but I was unable to find any older threads. DH and I are going to visit his grandmother this weekend. His parents will be joining us as well and several of his aunts/uncles live around there too- so it will be a big family gathering. Inevitably, the topic of when we''re going to have children is going to come up. We are still several years from that point, and have expressed that before. Yet, people still continue to ask. While I understand that everyone has the best intentions when asking us, it is nevertheless annoying to have to answer the same question time and again. Also, due to health reasons, I have good reason to believe that when we do start trying, it''s going to be difficult- and having them ask at that time could be painful. Can anyone offer me advice on how to make it clear that we will let them know when we are ready and in the meantime we would prefer that they not ask us? Of course, I want to be polite and not hurt anyone, but obviously they aren''t getting the message. Thanks!
