How many kids do you have?

I was asked by one of the new patients in the center, and it got me in awe. I couldn't say something, it feels like my tongue was somewhere. She was still beaming at me, waiting for my answer. And before she noticed I am not there in mind, I told her that I don't have. This is normal for all the patients there to ask this, but for me. I am so ignorant about it because first I don't know what to say. And I did get pregnant but I lose my baby. I know it's sad. More story? The picture has nothing to do with my discussion. And I grab it from Google.com

Sorry to hear you had one and lost it. I have one biological child, but no child at home. Want to have one or two more but scared.

In the Philippines it's just but natural to ask that question but I know that in other countries it's impolite, you'll have to wait till they open up and tell you about their kids, there are also some Asian countries ( sorry but it's true) where it's kind of a disgrace not to have children and where they also prefer males over female offsprings, again I don't condone with the practice but that is their culture.. Sorry you lost your child

I can understand you. I have only 1 child. This answer is not enough for some people who wanted to know more about me when I am in the Philippines. Why only 1? Do you have problem getting pregnant....Bla bla bla....You see what I mean? Those people are annoying. Sometimes I was about to say, "So what? Is that a business of yours?" But I just bit my tongue and told myself that I was in Pinas. BTW, sorry for your loss.

Yeah, I find it annoying sometimes and sometimes depending on the mood I am, I can answer it. It's just that I never expected it to someone I did not know.

In fact this question is also common here. People just want to have some topics to talk about and they don't have bad purpose.

Sometimes they need to because not all people can tell you exactly their thoughts about it.
