Get Pregnant!!

One of these days I was catching up with Ikya of Makeup Monologues and just generally chit chatting about her life after the wedding. Inevitably, we came to the topic of "good news". You know how Indian relatives and associates are in general right? The would like you to go from the Vidaai Mandap to the maternity ward in nine months flat!

So she told me about hints that started coming in as early as three months into the wedding. In fact, a lady in her cantonment suggested the following:

" You know Dr. So and So. He is really nice. Set pregnant before he gets posted out of here!"

I understand that an army wife would plan her family on the basis of her husband's posting. But a doctor? That is beyond hilarious!!
