    It makes me CRAZY, this notion that everything and anything is so offensive all the darn time.

    I'm also super confused about how reading about a pregnancy announcement is SOOOO terrible and triggering and like a knife of pain and whatnot, but seeing a dead baby ISN'T? I mean, I'd think that the dead baby would trigger a lot more upset than a fake pregnancy "gotcha!" announcement?

    I'm missing something...where did the dead baby come in? (I can't access the initial link you posted from FB so maybe that's where?)

    I don't think they are purposely trying to offend someone and we are entirely too sensitive these days about being politically correct and hurting someone's feelings.
    Word. You totally got me. I was so thinking inside that I have never heard anyone have that opinion before.

    I went back and looked at the picture as well. I have no experience or way of knowing, but that did not look like a dead baby to me.

    I would say, yes, it is very insensitive to post a picture of a stillborn baby.

    Oh God! I had no idea that was a stillborn baby. I have such a hard time with those. Yikes. Glad I didn't know.

    Melis~I can only speak for myself but when I was ttc every pregnancy announcement after like 8 months of trying was like a stomach punch and it was a harder punch as time went on. I know, wrongly of course, that I assumed that these people tried for like a millisecond and here I was struggling. Most of the time that wasn't true (but on the TTC boards it was!...lol people would join and say "Hey! We started trying yesterday and guess what look at this blazing bfp!) but it felt true.

    Okay...this really got me for a few seconds. Thanks for a good chuckle. My mouth dropped for a moment...
