Are you trying to have a baby?

When that time comes that you've decided you want to expand your family, should you tell people you're trying? I can understand talking to close friends and family, but what are the advantages/disadvantages of telling the whole world you're trying? A good friend said she'd loved telling people she was trying, because it prevented them from asking over and over "when  are you going to have a baby?" What do you think, should you tell people you're trying?

My husband and I have been trying for quite some time now (I mean, over a year and a half) and I don't recommend telling anyone. Because now, at any family function or whatever, we are asked if I'm pregnant. It's the first thing ladies ask me even before "How are you doing?" Or they just simply look at my stomach. After a while it hurts.

We've only told a few people, just like Annette's comment above. The questions don't stop, they just shift in a new direction. Most don't even care, but they have nothing else to talk about, like it is some kind of polite conversation. I've gotten very snarky and started talking about charting cervical mucus or gender neutral parenting to get them to lay off.

Eco-friendly Control of Thrips
Poorly developed flowers, stunted plants and silvery streaks on leaves are indications thrips may be feeding on your plants. These tiny insects have file-like mouthparts they use to puncture the outer surface of leaves, stems and flowers and suck out plant sap. They are very small and difficult to detect. Hold a white piece of paper under the plant and shake. Or remove the petals of damaged flowers, place in a sealed jar with 70% alcohol and shake the jar to dislodge and detect the pests. Control is difficult and often not needed as the damage is discovered after the thrips have finished feeding. Provide the proper growing conditions and care for your plants. Avoid excess nitrogen that promotes lush succulent growth these pests prefer. And remove spent flowers that tend to harbor the insects. Manage weeds in the garden and keep thrip-susceptible plants away from weedy areas where the pest populations tend to be high. A bit more information: Beneficial insects like predatory thrips, green lacewings, minute pirate bugs and some parasitic wasps feed upon plant damaging thrips. Invite these good bugs into the garden by planting a diversity of plants and avoiding persistent pesticides. Visit the University of California IPM online for more details on this pest.
