I'm "out" on Facebook.

We were at my friend's wedding last weekend, so someone took a picture of us. I changed the picture, and then wrote:

"Dress: $200. Suit: $180. Camera: $140. Telling all of FB that there are THREE people in this picture...

Priceless."

That's a great way to tell people! I bet it feels good to be out.

So clever! I tried to come up with something creative, but in the end just wrote "11 down, 29ish to go..." (I was 11 wks at the time) and posted the 9-wk ultrasound pic.

I just posted a picture of my uterus and everyone was all "What is that? An owl?"

Love it! Maybe I'll steal your idea and post when I'm 12 weeks and I've told work. My IL's know but nobody on my side except immediately family.

How long did it take people to catch on? Did you post the pic alone or with an album?

I bet it is nice to be "out" finally. We told all of our friends pretty much right away because we had a b-day party for DD1 and I was really sick. I hate telling family because my mom is so irritating.
I outed myself on FB when I posted a pic of some yummy crepes that I made and wrote underneath "mmmm, crepes for breakfast. The cravings have begun!"

For April Fools this year, I'd posted that we were expecting...so last week, when we decided to make the official FB announcement, I posted: "It turns out our April Fools joke wasn't a joke after all..." Most people got it right away

Now the only one who doesn't know is DD - we are going to wait as long as possible to tell her because she will be sooooooo excited and anxious for the baby to arrive!

I'm out on my blog (in homepage link)! I'm so excited. I'm not on Facebook, so this is the primary way I connect with friends online. It's fun finally telling people!
