[ - ] I'm 10 weeks pregnant with our 4th (and final) child. DH and I decided early on that 4 was our number, and we've been thoroughly enjoying the insanity and happiness that comes along with having a big family. However, the grant writer and office manager at my office found out I was pregnant on Friday. They both came up to me and asked point blank, "Are you pregnant?" I told them I was. The grant writer looked me right in the face and said, "Don't you use birth control!?" I had absolutely no idea what to say to this. I know 4 is A LOT of children; I'm not excepting everyone to agree with our choices. However, I'm married, have a secure job, and feel like this is no one else's business. What the hell do I say to people like this? Should I approach this woman on Monday and say something? I know I'm hormonal, but I'm seriously hurt by this. 27 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
