Did anyone see that Princess Kate is on the cover of People this week with more royal baby speculation?

I don't think I got pressured but I got lots of questions as soon as we were married. Everyone wanted to know when we planned to have children.

I've been getting lots of pressure over the last year from my MIL, but I'm sure it's not even close to the pressure she's under. Everytime I talk to her she's asking when we'll be making her a grandma, it drives me nuts.

Isn't that ridiculous, you just got married and they expect you to leap right into parenthood? People are very nosy when it comes to having babies.

I felt alot of pressure at first, but now at age 36 people now ask me whats wrong especially my mother. I haven't been actively trying until the last few months and haven't told anyone. I have had money and marital issue over the last few years and we wanted to wait till we are stable. Well now I am 36 and time just flew by. People now ask do you want to have kids instead of when are you having kids. How do you answer that when your trying and questioning inside if there is something wrong with me. I can just feel the eyes on me when I say yes I do want kids. But people are just curious I guess, you just have to blow it off and move on.

I couldn't believe how nosy some of the people were. They were not shy about asking, they just jumped right in and asked and some of them were very nosy about any details they could get from me.

DH and I were together 8 1/2 years by the time we got married (high school sweethearts), so the day of the wedding the in-laws were already asking.
