Well-meaning family members like to tell you “it will just happen. You will get pregnant. I just know it.”
Finally, after years and years of trying, someone has the inside scoop! They “just know” that you’ll get pregnant. How did they find this out? Did the Fertility Gods tell them? Did your uterus drop by and share the exciting news? Did his semen analysis secretly confess the big announcement? Did the future swing by your parents house and only told your mother? Maybe Michael J. Fox went Back to the Future and only informed your Great Auntie Annie. It’s so great that they “just know” you will get pregnant. You and your partner don’t know, your fertility doctor is not so sure and even your fur child seems pretty skeptical. But it’s nice to know that someone else is certain you will conceive.
Maybe your uterus told their uterus and then this whole rumor started. Perhaps your biological clock came over and “tocked” about it. Maybe your embryos wrote a note on their bathroom door “Did you know so-and-so is going to get pregnant?”
It’s super fantastic they “know.” But how do they know and you don’t? And if they know, why can’t they tell you when?
