Eh, hardly anyone could fire out a line like that on the spot, under those circumstances. This is why I am a writer, you can go back and write cool comebacks for yourself. :D
How many times have you been pregnant? - Page 3
Good one, Katielady! That should stop them in their tracks. I'm sorry you had to deal with that, Storm Bride. That person really stepped over the line. I think it would be more appropriate to ask if you would like more children, and when you said you were working on it, to say good luck and move on. Your reproduction is personal.
I've heard stories of small children telling their moms about being in their belly but not being ready to be born so they went back up to heaven to wait until they were ready and then they came back and were born. I find that comforting sometimes when I think about pregnancy loss. The baby's spirit is at peace, and it may come back to earth and join us later.
6 times although I suspect 7: I have two awesome children and I'm done!!

2010 Suspected early miscarriage but if it had not been a miscarriage it would have been a termination
Just a note: All but the first with my husband of 23 years
Glad you started this thread, because recently I was thinking back on an abortion I had in 1991. I was 22, living on the road with my boyfriend-- no money, no food. I keep up a bit with 2 girls who were born before and after my child's due date. They are both in their 20's, and in college, and it makes me sad. I don't exactly regret my decision, but now that I have 2 daughters of my own, I don't think I could ever make that same decision again. It was a fairly late abortion as well, in the last week of it being on-demand. I don't know. I am long out of that relationship and thrilled about it, but do not take that decision lightly. :(
So, 3 known pregnancies, 2 children. No apparent miscarriages.
2 pregnancies and 2 kids. I'm sure I have not been pregnant any other times. The only time we had unprotected sex was from when I was 28 to 31 (after that DH got V).
I might have lost a baby, though with my first pregnancy. It might have been a twin pregnancy to start with. Twins are not rare in my family. I had cramps and bleeding during week 8 - 9. Healthcare here don't usually do early ultrasound so we never found out what happened.
