Why It’s Big

Depending on who this comment is from, you'll have different reactions. If it's from your best friend, who's blissed-out with her own newborn, you won't take offense. If it's a comment from your great-aunt, who had her first baby when she was 20 years old, it's just a generational thing. If the comment is from a competitive coworker or sibling, things can get tense pretty quickly.

How to Deal

Think of the baby chatter as them wishing you a happy blessing, and a compliment that this person thinks you'd be great parents. Don't make it a problem by overreacting to the topic itself, assigning all kinds of pressures and judgments that reflect how you feel about having a baby. It's a common mistake for newlyweds to interpret too much from these kinds of comments. Just say, "We're not quite there yet, but you'll know very soon after we do!" Then, move on to the next subject.

I think that the most important advice is ‘love and passion’ to each other!) Besides I say not only about the ‘physical attraction’, but also about the ‘spiritual unity’!) For example, I found my inner harmony when I met my ‘present husband’ in this cool site https://kovla.com/datings/us/waterloo/ and since that moment I feel the total balance of ‘my body and my soul’!) Our family is created on the mutual understanding and respect! We like speaking about the purpose of life and we have our ‘crazy love’!) I wish to everybody good luck in the ‘search’ of incredible happiness and ‘real love’!) I’m sure that ‘love will come’ to you very unexpectedly!) Wait for it!)
