20 Comebacks for “Was it Planned?”

21 Jan

I don’t know what it is about being pregnant that makes people feel like they can say whatever they want or ask you personal questions as if they are asking you about the weather. But for people asking you “Was it planned?” could be pretty personal.

I saw a AWESOME blog post with 20 comebacks to this question & I had to re-post this!

You can chek out the original post here.. http://blogs.babycenter.com/mom_stories/0102201420-comebacks-for-the-pregnancy-question-was-it-planned/

1. “Was what planned?” Toss that at them and just let the awkward moment fester.

2. “Yes, of course. And it was AMAZING.” Awkward x 1000.

3. “I keep meaning to find out how babies are made, but I’ve just been so busy.”

4. “Was that question planned?”

5. “Depends on who you ask.” And then *wink*.

6. “Yes, it was planned by God.”

7. “We’ve always wanted children.”

8. “No, I really don’t know how this happened.” Warning though, that might lead to a whole different conversation you never wanted to have in the supermarket line.

9. “Why do you ask?”

10. “The sex was, but the baby was a bonus.”

11. “This was the best surprise of my life.”

12. “Isn’t everything part of a bigger plan?”

13. “Damn straight!”

14. “Wow, that’s a really personal question!”

15. “Does it matter?”

16. “We are so excited!”

17. “Bow chicka wow wow…” Seriously can someone please do this and report back?

18. “Have you ever read the book Fifty Shades of Grey?….” and then trail off and bite your lip.

19. “The baby was, the stretch marks were not.”

20. “It’s a miracle, isn’t it?”

I suppose the right thing to do is to just go with the flow and hope that everyone means well, even if they don’t. And I know we should all just answer with grace, but really, what’s the fun in that?

My personal favs are #6,9,14 & 18 : D What questions did/do YOU hate being asked?

What would you like to see comeback responses for??

    This is hilarious! It definitely happened a lot with my boys being 13 1/2 months apart 🙂 a lot of times people just assumed the second was not, which really annoyed me!

      Yeah & if it wasn’t planned I wouldn’t want people telling my son something about it & make him feel less than somehow. I think people just don’t realize how personal some of these questions they ask are! It’s ironic that you can respond with an equally shocking response & people look at you like YOU’RE the one out of place? = P
