My status? Eff you, ovaries!



Did you hear? Facebook has added an "expecting" status for women who are pregnant. Now not only can you bombard infetiles with baby pics, you can also mock us with the child you have in utero! Because apparently using your ultrasound as a profile photo isn't obnoxious enough. (Note to self: if I ever get pregnant, I pinky swear NOT to do this). Remind me why I have Facebook again? It seems like the only pregnant women I haven't "hidden" are my fellow infertiles who for the most part aren't obnoxious about their pregnancies. I wonder how long it will take them to add a "shitty eggs" option?

I agree this is beyond bizarre, and a sign that FB is probably past its prime. ;) I discovered this when I was labeling friends as family. I also don't understand when people set up pages for their babies or use them as their profile pics. Lose your identity much?

Wow. Like pregnant women needed another reason to flaunt their self-absorption. :)

I have not heard about this and I think it's ridiculous!! Even though we are expecting ourselves (finally), I would never choose to inflict that kind of pain on my friends who haven't succeeded yet. I used to hide the baby updates of my bestest friend, just because it was so easy for her and it was so hard for me. I totally agree with commenter #2 about losing your identity--beyond silliness!
