A Fool and Her Peestick are (Too) Soon Posted
I have an acquaintance, actually a friend of an ex-friend, who I am “friends” with on Facebook.
She posted an update a few weeks ago that she was “officially ‘in the family way.'” I was genuinely excited for her and wrote her a little congratulatory note. I was impressed she got pregnant the very first month because they had only begun trying in February.
Well, she had gotten pregnant quickly, but not as quickly as I had assumed. I assumed that she announced it on Facebook when she was into the second trimester.
Today her status update read: ” ________ is really excited to find out if the lima bean has a heartbeat yet…”
She posted on FB that she was pregnant the same day she got a positive pregnancy test. She had not even seen the heartbeat. She was not even a few weeks along, let alone into the second trimester.
I hope that everything is okay, I really do, but … well, if you are reading this, you know why I hesitate. Even I was not that naive before my first miscarriage.
Her friends are already planning her baby shower and all the cute gifts they are going to get her, yada, yada, yada. I think she is a fool, but maybe that is just my bitter cynicism.
