Laura Henshaw has revealed the one question she’s tired of hearing is when she’s going to get pregnant.
The fitness guru, who recently married partner Dalton Graham last November, admitted as much in a post on her Instagram on Friday.
“I get asked this question often and just wanted to share a sweet reminder of why I never ask anyone this question again,” Laura, 28, began in a series of slides with written text.

The Keep It Cleaner co-founder highlighted the issues women face with infertility, the constant worry she has about her “fertile window” and the decision not to have children.
“If we want to have kids, that doesn’t mean we can,” she continued. “Infertility is unfortunately much more common than you might ever think.”
Laura compared the ‘fear’ of getting pregnant at a younger age with ‘100% certainty’ that you’ll get pregnant when you’re older, but then when you’re in your 20s there’s ‘not 100 % chance” of getting pregnant.

“We still have to consider at an age where we still feel ready what our plans will be because there is a specific fertile window.”
Laura then questioned her own fertility and said it’s something that worries her and “thinks about it often”.
‘What if I wait too long and miss the window? And then I would have liked to start earlier.
“I hope to have children, but I don’t know how fertile I am – I’ll have to wait and see,” she added.

The fitness influencer then shed some light on the decision not to have children.
“There is so much social pressure to follow a certain path in life – finish school, go to college, get married, have children, etc. The most beautiful thing about your own life is that you can choose.”
She concluded the post: “I think when people assume it makes it difficult for those who don’t feel like kids are in their way.”
