Best Facebook pregnancy status update? - Page 11
I had a friend do that, and then continue to post vague statuses for another month without acknowledging that she was in fact pregnant.
It was super annoying.
I know it's hard to watch other people having fun being pregnant when you're struggling with infertility yourself but that was kind of unnecessarily harsh. I don't think anybody is trying to be smug. I think they're just trying to have fun with the announcement. Facebook is always a little attention whorish by definition, but I'd rather somebody use it to announce a major life event than for a constant stream of minutiae. I'm not a fan of some of the suggestions in this thread either, but if somebody else wants to post that, it's no skin off my nose.
Enjoy the 135 likes and comments when you get them. :)
I was thinking of saying something like "I'm thankful for small miracles. Ours is currently the size of a lime and due in January!"
We tried for two years, gave up, and got pregnant out of the blue a year later so it feels like a miracle to me. I'm only about 5 weeks though and planning to wait til 13 to make the official announcement, but my poker face totally sucks so I'm just hoping I can really keep it a secret that long from the local friends. I also think your comment was a bit harsh, wow345. I've waited a long time for this and plan to milk it for all its cheesy goodness ;)
I have a graphic that says "I like the tern 'we're expecting' when talking about pregnancy, because it makes it sound like there's more than one outcome. Yeah, we're expecting a baby. But it could be a velociraptor."- with a picture of a velociraptor on the bottom. I will be posting this to fb in the next week or so, once we're sure that all family members and close friends have been told in person. My friends are mostly nerds, and they will likely find it hilarious. 😜
my fb is private so just friend and family but last one big bro pic on my youngest. this one spring had just begun to i posted a pc of me pointing to my belly(15 weeks along) and said something like "it's spring and this lil' bean is growing"
sharing is caring:)
sono and prego test announcements are not my fav but doesn't bother me:)
If you post something that is not popular, are your posts automatically removed with no warning? I wasn't aware of this rule. Please let me know, thank you!
I couldn't wait to post on facebook about my pregnancy. My DH wanted to wait until we had the 7 week ultrasound to confirm the viability of the pregnancy. Once we got the confirmation that it was a viable pregnancy, I posted the ultrasound picture with the caption, "We're having a blob!!" Because that's what it looked like at that stage.
Last year on April Fool's my husband called his mother and told her we were expecting. We were not. :-P This year I got my BFP in March, and later my MIL said to me, "I kept wondering if this was another April Fool's joke! Guess not." This is our eighth, so we're kinda casual about the whole thing.
I'm getting an ultrasound tomorrow, and as long as everything looks good I'm going to post it to Facebook to clue in everyone who doesn't know yet. I'll probably just caption it something like "Coming Christmas 2013!" Maybe, "Look what we're getting for Christmas!" Not very creative, but gives the necessary information. Most everybody knows already, anyway.
I was reading through old stuff on my fb page yesterday, and had totally forgotten that we posted there about ds#1. we had waited till 20 weeks due to having 3 missed miscarriages prior to him, and were really scared that something would happen. We hadn't even told family at that point, but when al looked good with the 20wk ultrasound, we decided to let the world know especially since it was getting pretty obvious. I didn't put any picture or anything to go with it, just posted
"10 little fingers and 10 little toes, but as for the gender, only the ultrasound tech knows"
