Can I throw in a slightly off-topic experience? (since my baby isn't born yet!)

I did IVF and I'm not shy about it but people ask me things that I've come up with good comebacks for:

Waiter (like 20 years old, male): So did you get to pick the eye color and stuff?
Me: Yes, we actually designed her to have violet eyes and blue skin.

Older co-worker: OMG, are you going to have 6 babies like that show?
Me: uh...no... You must have missed the IVF day in reproductive endocrinology school.

And my all time favorite:
Nosy person: Why didn't you just adopt?
Me: Madonna and Angelina took all the good ones!

(this isn't meant to be snotty against adoption - just nosy people)

Nah, it's pretty funny.

I'm not Christian at all but i figured she might be - she left in a huff, haha!
I still haven't put my wedding ring back on and dd is 3mo! It is really funny when we all go out since dh wears his ring. We joke that everyone will think I'm his mistress and dd our love child.
