...Is TIN ROOF.... Rusted!
I had *never* heard that in relation to pregnancy, until I just now googled it! I just always assumed the love shack had a rusty roof.

I still don't get why it's related.

a friend of mine posted

<name> is cursing dead rabbits, but only a little

I used "is expecting the unexpected.... on or around 10/23/09."

Everyone "got" that right away.

Yesterday I posted "..is smuggling watermelons." Per a t-shirt that someone in my DDC posted about.

Only one or two got it! LOL!

So today I stole the Sesame Street one "Today is brought to you by the number three, and the month of May." (This is my third, due in May). It's been up for a bit and no response so far!

I added the Due in April pin to my flair. Lots of people got it...

my post was "4 legs good, 2 legs bad"

I changed my profile picture to one of the positive test and then just sat back and waited. I'm not out of the woods yet, of course - it's still early - but I figure the good vibes from friends can't hurt.

Here is my idea (but now that I've read all your ideas, I'm seriously reconsidering, since I want to steal them all!):

* Anna + Josh = baby #2

More ideas I thought of as I was lying awake in bed last night, excited about when I'll be able to update my FB status (I know, I know, dorky...and I'm not even pregnant!).

* ...is wondering where she can buy a "Big Sister" tshirt for M (current daughter)"
* ...'s uterus is occupied"
* ...is super excited about her new website/blog (include link)" (if you are starting a baby/pregnancy website/blog/online journal"

If I knew I was having a boy (I won't) and I had the guts (I don't):

"(Name) is growing a penis."


Hahaha!

I actually did this one a few months ago!

I wrote "plans on seeing her feet and waist again some time in Feb/March"

I posted the night I found out. I wasn't thinking that I'd announce it, but most of my good friends keep up and chat daily on FB, so I wanted to share. I posted: ...POAS and got a BFP!

Most of my friends in real life are MDC mamas, and I knew they'd get the abbreviation. Those that didn't, figured it out by the comments that others wrote!

With DS1 I wasn't on FB, but we sent out an email to our parents with the subject line: March 2006 and just a picture attachment with a picture of a hamburger bun in the oven. It was fun to hear them guess... my MIL kept saying, "Bun in the stove???" and my grandma thought it was a cat in the oven.

We're probably announcing on Facebook and to the world at large in two weeks after my 13 week appointment with my midwife, assuming that all goes well. I was thinking of waiting longer before telling, but we told our parents a week ago and my mother-in-law sounded like she was going to pee herself in excitement. She's also martyring herself by not talking to her sisters until I tell her it's okay to tell them. I didn't tell her to be a hermit! I just expect her to be a grownup. That includes respecting my life and my body enough to not share my news with people I barely know until we hear a heartbeat and feel confident that this kidlet is going to make it.

That having been said, I'm still a little stuck on what to announce. My first inclination would be to either go with "...is gestating" or "...is with the babies" (and clarifying in the comments that it's really just one). But I am a human behavioral ecologist who studies sex and reproduction and parental investment, so there's part of me that's tempted to post something that would be amusing and very clear to my professional colleagues but maybe a bit cryptic for everyone else.

"...is increasing her reproductive success to 1"
"...is about to have a new coefficient of relatedness equal to 1/2"
"...is K-selected"

I'm not in love with any of them, but I'm sure I could come up with something better in the next two weeks.

I'd also play nice and clarify it for everyone else by uploading a photo album of my weekly tummy pictures and 7 week ultrasound within a day or so.

A friend of mine is pregnant and her facebook status said "is expanding" so I replied with "join the club". I never got a response though.

I still haven't figured out how im going to tell anyone. We still haven't told family or really any friends. My main reason for telling anyone on fb at the moment is because there are few people on there who would report to my mother - ugh - and if she knows, she'll tell the entire world before I drive the 10, 15 mins home. She'll also freak out if she finds out I told fb before her. Eventually we'll think of something cute. Or maybe I'll just wait and post a photo of the baby after it's born

I just wrote ".....is expectant!" and left it at that, but it was funny to me how many people were just

I've mentioned on FB before how annoyed I get by ultra-vague and pseudo-mysterious status lines, such as "Susan is wondering why?" just a pet peeve....

So, I had several people who were all, "hey, what's with the vague status? I thought you didn't like those...." Um yeah....think about it a minute, folks....nothing vague at all about this status!

OT:
Those annoy the poo out of me too. I had a friend with "is so sad and wondering WHY???" One person asked what was wrong and she says "I don't want to talk about it" What? Obviously, you do...
I love all these ideas even though mine is done :-)

Well I just bought a minivan after years of swearing to everyone I never would. So after 11 week appt tomorrow, I think i will post....

"....has bought and is loving her new minivan. Which will prove helpful in fitting yet another carseat come May."

Not going to vague...mainly as my friends are so distracted that they probably would not read long enough to figure it out.
