Carrie Underwood fears pregnancy rumors

[I] choose my wardrobe differently because when I wear something a little baggier, I’m like, nope, people are going to think I’m hiding something, so I better not wear that….

We’re just having fun, I’m 28. I’m not a lot older and like, need to have kids now.

We have plenty of time.

~ Country singer and newlywed Carrie Underwood, remarking on how she and hockey star husband Mike Fisher plan to hold off having children and try to avoid pregnancy rumors, as quoted by The Celebrity Cafe, April 2

  1. Can’t say I understand why this millionaire husband and wife are so concerned about someone thinking they’re having a baby.  I guess they just want to avoid all publicity.

  2. Uh, 28 is old, honey.  That is when I first tried to get pregnant.  It took me almost two years to get pregnant the first time and six for the second one.

    Delaying motherhood will likely mean you will not have the family you want and you will very likely be very disappointed.

    Just tellin’ it like it is.

  3. Fertility starts to decline at age 27, but that doesn’t mean when you’re older you can’t conceive.  It just means it might be more difficult – which is why things like IVF are likely so prevalent now – women find they’ve waited so long to have children that it’s harder to get pregnant.
    I have a lot of friends who waited chose to have fertility treatments.  Those who haven’t chosen fertility treatments are still trying to conceive.  I hope Carrie and her hubby don’t have any trouble.  They seem like really sweet people.

  4. Fertility treatments have low success rates.  A lot of heartbreak there.  People get their hopes up and more often than not never conceive.  Do not be misled.  Fertility treatments have low success rates and are an emotional roller coaster.

  5. I agree with you, hippie.  i have also always wondered if somehow taking the Pill for so many of their reproductive years has caused problems for many women with conceiving.

  6. I had a kid at 27 after I had been married for about 2-3 years, so my experiece isn’t the same as hippie’s (I didn’t have trouble getting pregnant). However, hippie does make an excellent point. Fertility does decline in a woman with age (and pregnancy is harder on older women than it is on women in their early to mid-twenties IN GENERAL). However, my mother gave birth to my younger brother at the age of 42 and was all right, so I guess it really depends on the woman, her health and her reproductive system [among whatever else] how easy/hard it is for her to get pregnant and how easy/hard her pregnancy is.

    Kel is right…the pill CAN (and sometimes does) affect a woman’s ability to get pregnant/maintain pregnancy (I’m talking about when a woman goes off the pill, by the way).

  7. It is not all about the age of woman’s reproductive system. The man’s reproductive system declines as well. Both the quality [vigor] and the quantity of his spermatazoa dimenish as he ages.

    Not to mention his ‘want to’.

    My mom was in her forties when she had my younger brother and my younger sister who were 11 and 13 years younger than me.

  8. I’ve always thought Carrie Underwood was cute as all-get-out, though perhaps that’s a dated expression.
     
    Who knows – indeed, there isn’t “unlimited time” to get pregnant, but as she gets into her 30’s, then 40’s, who knows if she won’t decide, in the end, to remain childless?

  9. In Carrie’s defense, though, the way I read this story was not as a woman talking about wanting to have kids/when to have kids, but as avoiding the constant media speculation if she eats more than one taco at lunch and has the tiniest bump. We practice NFP and are definitely open to life, but I would go crazy if every week someone was taking photos of me from odd angles and claiming that I was pregnant when I wasn’t. And given her career being in a really great place now, who knows… what if she just wants to postpone kids for a couple of years? We planned to wait until I was far enough into my MA that I wouldn’t deliver until after graduation… missed that mark by 5 months. And who’s to say she’s not using NFP??

    Lisa, no doubt.  I’m sure that celebrities enjoy their status to a point, but too much attention all the time has got to get mighty tiresome.  “If she eats more than one taco at lunch” – Ha!  Love it….  : D
