Hi!

I'm reaching the 12 week mark tomorrow and I think I'll finally come out to Facebook (all close friends and family already know). Any suggestions for how to word the status update? I've been thinking "is due in March," but I don't know if that's creative enough.

What did you write?

I thought there was a thread on this a while back, but I can't find it.

Thanks!!!

I changed my profile picture to a picture of the test and wrote, "is freaking out much less now than she was 6 weeks ago." LOL This was a very unexpected pregnancy.

I changed my profile pic to a shot of my DS wearing a "Big Brother" shirt, and my status said, "is craving pickles."

...is using facebook for mass dissemination of personal news - Matt and I are expecting our first child in January.

I always thought it silly when people get way too personal on such a public forum, but I thought bun in the oven status was ok.

I put up my most recent u/s (one of the "benefits" to being high risk is you get a lot of them) and changed my status to . . . Is expecting someone new n the new year. Granted this worked for me because the babe is due in January. Not the best update for being due other months.

Sheesh, all these great responses make me wish that I had updated my FB status when I was ready to announce the last pregnancy.

Put me in the, "wish I'd seen this thread 3 weeks ago!" boat

I just had, "is expecting a baby boy sometime Jan-Feb!"

I signed up for FB just about a month ago. I started with a photo of me with a big glowy white tummy. All of my local friends and family knew but I surprised some distant friends. It was cool.
