Baby on board

Do you get uncomfortable when a couple tells you they're trying to have a baby?

I do.

Luckily, I'm not alone. In the comments section of this Lil Sugar post, plenty of people point to the awkward mental pictures that "we're trying" generates.


What's more, it's hard to appropriately respond to the comment. You can't really say "congratulations" because there isn't a baby, or even a pregnancy, yet.

You can't seem too excited because you'll seem like a voyeur obsessed with watching your friends get busy beside a soundtrack of Marvin Gaye.

So what's a girl to do?

Weigh in with your thoughts on the complexities of "we're trying."
