U(nexpected)W(e're)P(regnant!) Announcements

Kevin's cousin M and his wife S are going to have a baby. They're due in March. Cousin M announced it on his Fac.ebook status. I showed it to Kevin who told his Mum and it was a shock to them both. Later Mum "happened" to be walking down their street and saw S and S told Mum the happy news. M wasn't suppose to say anything but after an evening at the pub a friend convinced him to put it on fa.cebook. The next day they had to scramble to get to his parent's house and tell them about it before they learned about it from someone else. Mum said that S went off the pill around Christmas so they were TTC but I don't think anyone knew about it. Back in February 2008 S said they were waiting for M's 30th b-day (which was last month) to have kids. Now they're 10 weeks along and the first thing I thought of is that if we had gotten a BFP last cycle our EDDs would have only been 2-3 weeks apart.

Uggg... facebook, definitely not the best way to announce (or find out about) a pregnancy. Well, good for them anyhow. Too bad you're not celebrating at the same time :(

That is why I am not on facebook!!!!!! Numbero Uno reason!!! It totally sucks though- every time I think of my child-bearing-age sisters and cousins, I get worried that there is another pending announcement before we'll be able to make one...

Hopefully you'll be able to share an announcement soon. I'm sure you'll do it with more class and pizzaz!

Perfect example of why I spend less and less time on Facebook these days. And, for the life of me, I can't figure out why someone would think that FB was the appropriate place to announce a baby before even having told their parents. Some people's kids... (((HUGS)))
