    *sigh* well then why would you tell them you were ttc in the first place?

    They just sound excited for you.

    I don't really think that is fair. I know heaps of people who have told me that they are ttc, but keep the pregnancy secret for the first 12 weeks. It's really common amongst people I know.

    I get that but don't be surprised when they ask or show interest.

    Oh, of course not. The minute you refuse a piece of cheese or mention that you don't feel well, the questions will begin. Even if people don't know you are TTC, in my experience!

    Thats it, it's just part and parcel of it all.

    I don't think it's odd just odd that your upset that they are asking when you sent up the red flag.

    My post did come across a snarky sorry for that, I posted my first thought and wasn't tactful.

    If you are close enough to someone to tell them you are trying for a baby then you become sick and not attend events of course they will ask.
    What kind of a friend would ignore that.
    Its common sense and I don't see it as rude at all.
    Its excitement and concern for you (especially if you are missing events)

    OP if you don't want to tell them just say you are unsure or something but don't get frustrated over them asking it's human nature and pretty obvious.
