FB announcements xp

How have you (now or in previous pregnancies) announced your pregnancy on FB? I googled it and there are tons of sites with witty ideas on how to announce it. I plan to say something Friday after my 2nd ultrasound but not sure what to say.

I've thought of posting a picture of the u/s and saying "Just got to spend some quality time with Baby (last name) #2" or something to that affect.

(lurkers join in please Smile )

With DS #1 I didn't have FB yet so I never had to announce. However, I know it will come out really soon from my friends and family that know so I would rather it be me that tells everyone.

I plan on being "Facebook official" after my NT scan June 6th. I was planning on posting my u/s photo and just saying that we are excited and happy to announce that Nicholas will be a big brother at the end of December.

Looks like I may be stalking you now Jenn. My cousin (that is your "neighbor") bought a shirt for DD1 that said "I'm going to be a big sister!". She posted a picture of DD1 wearing it in a new album called "Hannah's Awesome New Shirt". I thought it was a pretty cute idea. Smile

I posted my HPT on April Fool's Day with the caption "BEST APRIL FOOL'S JOKE EVER!"- No one figured out the joke was really on them! (They all wanted to know if DH was madat me!)

I had a friend who posted a pic of her DD wearing a "Big Sister" t-shirt.

Stalk away! Smile

I have a picture of Deacon in his BB shirt - that's how I told some people by email and text.

ive been waiting until after this weekend when we see DH's family. my MIL already blabbed it to basically everyone, so its not really a surprise anymore. DH's parents are divorced. my family and my MIL were the only ones who knew. we wanted to tell DH's family in person over Luke's birthday this weekend, but my MIL already ruined that. shes so annoying!!!

i was waiting to come out on facebook till after we told them so no one would find out through the grapevine, but apparently they already know anyway.

I am still debating weather I will say anything on FB at all. I know it sounds sort of weird, but....that is what I am thinking.

No, I ended up reposting a couple of days later about how the joke was on them...of course, then "EVERYONE KNEW", they just did not want to spoil it....yeah, right!

I did get an e-mail from a friend judt the other day congratulating me- he thought it was a joke this whole time! LOL!

Not weird at all - I hadn't planned to ever post it on FB but my family is determined to beat me to it. I have to tell them to WAIT and let me share first.

Everyone on fb figured it out after awhile. My dh's profile picture was of us and he wearing a t-shirt that says My pregnant wife is awesome!

I on the other hand posted the tail end of my digital BFP and actually had my sis in law delete me over the "pee stick" lol Everyone else was happy.

I let the cat out of the bag on fb pretty early on. I made sure to call all my close family and friends first, so that they wouldn't find out through the grapevine and then I just let it out. I didn't really post anything clever or witty. I think it just said something along the lines of "Well, the word is out. We will be welcoming a baby later this year."

I also have an appt tomorrow and I'm dying to get it over with! I just want to hear the heartbeat, and have my doctor tell me everything is perfect. Plus of course I'm dreading the pap smear and hoping I don't have to have a breast exam. LOL! I do have a doppler, but I've forbidden myself to use it. It's so hard to find every time and then I get stressed when I can't find it! If all goes well tomorrow we'll be telling family this weekend!! So in the next 2 weeks it'll be out on facebook. I was thinking of just changing my profile picture to a picture of Miles wearing his Big Brother shirt and letting people figure it out?

I deactivated right away. I'll come back to Facebook after I tell my work (in two weeks) and I'm sure word will get out that way through friends eventually, but I don't plan on actually making any sort of announcement.

This is the only baby that I announced on FB... I don't think it was around for my first and second babies (2002 and 2005) and I was still doing the MySpace thing with my last baby. I announced this baby about a month ago!
