How do you respond to those who ask if you want kids?

I am sick and tired of people constantly asking me when I am going to have a baby or if I am actively trying. I think it is extremely personal and I feel pressured. Yesterday, I swear I was asked six times by different people. When I am at any social function the question always comes up and I don’t think it’s any of their business so I just say “I don’t know” and they go “You don’t want kids?”

I never been the type to yearn for kids or have it a life goal to become a mom. To be honest, yes we want to try for a baby soon but for whatever reason I don’t want people to know about it but people continue to pry.

Then they seem like it’s rude when I give a vague answer or like I don’t want to talk about it. I tried opening up about how it feels like pressure when asked and they’re like, “we aren’t pressuring you!” But it sure feels like it.
