Bitch, Please

Remember my “friend” from Facebook who announced her pregnancy on FB before her first u/s?

She just announced her second pregnancy.

She is 4 weeks / 4 days pregnant.  (I did a “reverse” look up calculation based on the due date she gave.)

She is clearly a MORON.  I hate her for being so stupidly optimistic.  I don’t wish miscarriage on her, but doesn’t she even THINK about it?  That it MIGHT happen to her?  Who has this kind of hubris?

Bitch, please.

    My wife and I have a double-digit case file at our now-busy REs office, we’ve been going there so long. I just went public w/ my due date when any sane person would, the day after I passed my amnio at 19 weeks. I learned the hard way not to go public until the fetus gets its PhD in prenatal testing. I don’t wish bad things on those optimistic hapless folks, but damn.

    Oh just leave the poor woman alone! She might be a little premature in making the announcement but that is her decision and her right to do so.

    OMG. One of my newish colleagues did this to me – kind of understandable since she wanted advice (we work occasionally with chemicals) and I’m pregnant at the moment. BUT I had a hard time not being negative based on my experience.

    I had a FB friend announce early too. Except she acknowledged it was early (not as early as your friend, maybe 2 mo?) and she’d appreciate support even if things didn’t work out as planned.

    Yet another reason to stay off FB 🙂

    I guess that’s a good point – some people want the support if it doesn’t work out . . . so, maybe that’s why they announced so early – but I think most people would tell their closest friends, not everyone on facebook.
