"Was it planned"

Why, oh why when you tell someone you're pregnant, they feel it's ok to automatically ask if you were responsible with your birth control or not? I just told one of my bosses (an off site boss, one that I see about once a quarter) that we're expecting a baby and she got very excited and then asked: "Was it planned, or not?"

"Um, yes, planned. We felt the timing was good for us"

GROSS!!! I really, really don't want to have this conversation with my boss! Especially her!!! She doesn't have kids, I wouldn't imagine her and her partner ever dreamed of having kids and her friends probably don't have kids. Maybe she just didn't know what to say. I'll give her that. But she was excited.

Anyway, I know that I will never, ever ask about someones sex life and planning "capabilities" when they announce they're pregnant. First response: Congrats! When's it due?

Whew! Ok, vent over. The rest of my workplace finds out on Thursday. I'm looking forward to that as I know they will all be SO excited.

11weeks even!

I keep getting that question too. My father in law even asked that, then told me that nobody ever plans their baby so we must be weird. Yeah, the guy is a winner.

Hopefully nobody else says anything stupid like that to you!
