My husband and I were married on 21st January 2006 and found out that we were pregnant on the 21st February 2006.
Now for those who don't know how they count pregnancy dates:
day 1 of the pregnancy is day 1 of the last period before you actually conceived.
So our pregnancy day 1 was 26th January (Australia Day!) and on our honeymoon. (due date 1st November, actual birthday 2nd November)
Cue a few weeks after our announcement to our church family (so about 15/16 weeks pregnant) and one of the young (age 10-12) girls at church comes up to my husband and I congratulating us. She is a bit developmentally delayed (so not sure if that is a contributing factor), and I guess was trying to make conversation by saying "So, a honeymoon baby hey?"
DH and I just laughed and steered the conversation elsewhere, but afterwards we were discussing and were wondering:
1. who would have told her that / where she would have heard it
2. who really cares enough about someone else's pregnancy to "work out" if it was a "Honeymoon baby" or not, and then talk about it (in front if their kids no less!)
I did get the jokes from work colleagues as well, and depending on the relationship
answered honestly - that it was actually impossible for me to fall pregnant on our honeymoon.
The "worst" one was my dad who at the family Christmas get together (December 2006 so DS was about 6 weeks old) and in joking discussion with my then future BIL (sister's fiance) about "so you're sure you weren't pregnant before the wedding?" dad says "No its OK. I counted and made sure"
(not that he can talk, I was born in July '83 after their January '83 wedding)
anyone else had similar "Interesting Assumptions"?
