Here they come! 5...4....3....2.....

Re: Here they come! 5...4....3....2.....

  • Mine have all been posts friends have liked, so nothing in my immediate circle.  And maybe I'm just a bitter hag, but all the "cutsey" baby announcements via Pintrest are making me gag.  I think I'd find them cute if they weren't so overdone.  The latest is of 2 big safety pins and a smaller safety pin beside them.  One of the big safety pins also has a small pin inside of it too.  So I did think it was cute, but it annoyed me at the same time.  And I don't even know these people.  

  • I haven't had any yet, which is a little shocking.
  • Nothing from my feed. I was the last one to get married, and all of my friends are done having kids. Its all good, though.

  • Oh, just saw a baby announcement. I'm really happy for her because I know they were trying for a while. But the announcement is totally cheesy! They had cards printed up and mailed them to people.
    To announe a pregnancy?  That's interesting.
  • I've seen one engagement and two baby announcements. But one of the women is having twins. Does that count as three?

  • One engagement so far. I'm sure there's more lurking around. I've hidden a lot of people from my feed.

  • Lots of engagements on my friends list within the last 3 weeks or so, no pregnancy announcements though.

    But one of my FB friends, the queen of AWing, is having her second baby and waited until Christmas to share the gender of the baby with her friends list. She posted a status 11 days ago announcing that they just found out the gender but the 'reveal' was 10 days away and did anybody want to guess what it's going be?!??
    Um, no. She got so much enjoyment out of teasing people about knowing and not sharing right away.

    She followed up the 'reveal' photo with a status saying, "in case anybody missed it (over 100 likes) we're having a girl and her name is _______!"

    Stuck

    I hate people like this. FI's cousin's gf is like this. She did this whole FB crap about the gender of the baby. Recently, she posted a status requesting for well wishes for an endeavor they were about to embark on. But no, they cannot reveal just yet what it is about! Then a status saying everything worked out and they can't wait to share their news! Then a couple of days after that, the big news is that they moved to another city. Womp Womp.

    I don't get this. He knows he is going to propose IN A YEAR?
    What did you think would happen if you walked up to a group of internet strangers and told them to get shoehorned by their lady doc?~StageManager14

    Apparently. H e is probably saving to buy the ring sometime this year and plan the proposal. She is studying medicine as well but she is in St. Kitts so she is gone most of the year. 

    Also Fi got my ring in February and proposed in December and he knew when and how he wanted to propose so yeah. 


  • I've had one baby announcement show up in my FB feed but I knew a while ago.   It was just a formality and a family photo was made.   No big deal.   Another family member announced their pregnancy in their Christmas card.   I thought it was sweet.

    Then again, in my IL's family, there are a LOT of babies so the announcements don't need to be overdone - just celebrated.    
  • Yea, there is no way DH could have waited a year to propose to me. He ordered the ring, got it 2 weeks later, and waited the 2 hours until I got home from work to pop the question. He was too afraid he was going to end up losing the ring to hold on to it any longer than that!

    My fiancé didn't even make 72 hours with the ring. And he told me later that the proposal he'd planned out wasn't going to work out 100% the way he wanted with the order of reservations we had, so he just went with what he was able to do that day, because he just wanted to ask already.

    I could see waiting for graduation to ask, or waiting to get established in a career to make sure marriage is right for the couple. But if it's just to plan a perfect proposal then that seems like a lot of lost time that could be used to save and plan for the wedding.

  • H had the ring for 2 weeks before he proposed. He said that he wasn't quite ready, but he knew that when whe would be ready, he wouldn't want to wait. He decided on a Sunday morning that he was ready, and proposed that afternoon.
  • Lots of engagements on my friends list within the last 3 weeks or so, no pregnancy announcements though.

    She actually made a point of saying how many likes the post got? Gross.

    Yeah, see if you have an answer, there's only two possibilities and it's inappropriate to show displeasure in either outcome. It's simply not that fascinating.

  • @dallasbetch‌ see I would have been the bitch who said that they were in fact reveling the sex since all they can tell in an ultrasound is what kind of genital your offspring has. And really what baring does that have who your child is as a human? Your little girl might love football, your little boy may become a ballerina. Honestly a countdown to finding out if your offspring has a penis or a vagina is just pointless.

    But again I'm a bitch.

    She sure did.

    I didn't think about it until recently but I don't get the whole gender reveal thing and making a big deal about your kid's sex. But for this person, she's all about anything that gets her a lot of attention. Before she had her first kid she was always posting about her chronic health issues, then her son's asthma, and now it's all pregnancy posts again

  • I'm hoping to see an "in labor" post from a friend of mine any day now. She's due tomorrow and has been whining on FB at least 2-3 times per day for the past several months.

    She's always been pretty whiny and AW-ish, though. She's big on the whole, "Baby wanted pancakes so I ate a bunch. #sorrynotsorry," nonsense. I'm waiting to see what happens once all of the attention moves from her to the baby. It should be interesting. 

    That, or she's going to be one of those 90 pictures every day people, at which point I'll have to block her. >:(

    I had a friend that said that her entire pregnancy "Baby wants McDonalds so I got a Big Mac, large fries and a large milkshake" "Baby couldn't decide which candy bar it wanted so I had 3" etc and didn't understand why she ended up gaining 80lbs.

    No engagements and one Pinterest-inspired baby announcement on my FB.

  • I only had one engagement over thanksgiving.
