How did you make the facebook annoucement?

Re: How did you make the facebook annoucement?

  • I haven't yet, but I'm planning on changing my profile picture to an ultrasound picture and making some sort of comment about it.
  • I think we'll just post the most recent u/s pic, and just say something like "Apollo Puppy is going to have to learn that he's no longer Number 1"! 

    Something like that...or is that lame?

  • I read this quote once in a loss book that said something like, "A bouquet of roses we have. One will forever remain a bud, but one will bloom and fill our home with a child's love."

    Me likey. I'll probably just quote it and post an ultrasound photo.

  • I was going to wait a couple more weeks once we've told all our close friends and say something like, "bissfully happy even with this never ending morning sickness!"
  • Well, I'm not going to make that announcement for about 3 or 4 more weeks, so I haven't really thought much about it.  I don't want to be it to be corny or cheesy.

    Maybe something like "Veronica Corningstone is going to be a mom X2 come October 12th".  Heck, I don't know.

  • I made a new photo album titled "Big News" with a pic of my positive test.

    and on my status update thing I wrote something about having a new addition to the family.

  • DH didn't want to announce it on FB so I will respect that but I was going to write

    "Snowflake and DH will be welcoming Baby N in September 2010"

    Instead I am going to announce the sex on FB in a couple of months

  • I'm not.  The people who need to know will find out in a more personal manner, and the random people who are not actually my friends beyond facebook will have to figure it out when I start posting pictures of a kid.

    How about, "Double double, this mom's in trouble. Come October 12th, this cauldron's gonna bubble."

    Totally cheeseball, but for some reason that popped in my head and made me laugh.

  • I haven't really thought too much about it. I have a few friends who made their pregnancy announcements as soon as they found out (like, profile pictures of their positive HPTs), and then proceeded to update with belly pictures right away...honestly, I found it tacky, so I'm trying to figure out how to do it a) delicately and b) with some class.

    I honestly might just wait until someone else comments on my page...is that too passive?

    I was thinking of doing something like this, but DH is dying to post about it.

  • I didn't need to, my mother told the preacher.  He decided to tell the whole church during announcements, as most of my family goes to the same church they now all know, and most of them have loud mouths.  I went to visit my mother last weekend and was congratulated by people I don't even know.
  • Won't be.

    When we tell people (and that's not for a while) facebook doesn't factor into the plan.  I've got all nature of friends and business associates as FB friends, most of whom don't need to see a  'SQUEE! I'm KU" announcement.

    But that's just me. To each their own.

    This.  I'm not a fan of the whole Facebook announcement.  I wouldn't announce it to everyone at work during a meeting and I see these people every day, why the would I announce it on facebook?

    I didn't see rosenjoe's post until I'd responded...but all of this for sure! I'm glad I'm not alone.

  • I announced it with this:

    "thinks it's going to be one LONG summer...seeing as how Baby XXX is going to make it a really hot one! That's right, Baby XXX coming September 2010!"

    This!  Definitely not a fan of the FB announcement.

  • I didn't announce it.  I just didn't feel like FB was the place to do it or the way for my close friends to find out.

    After everyone that mattered knew, I changed my profile pic to a jar of Prego spaghetti sauce.  I'm letting everyone else figure it out for themselves.

    This exactly.

    First pg = missed m/c, D&C at 10wks, always in my heart.

    Second pg = my beautiful baby boy, born at 36w by c-section for PPROM, transverse lie.

    Third pg = a baby brother!, born by repeat c-section for breech because I apparently don't grow babies the right direction.

    Our baby girl is here!
  • I posted a picture of the ultrasound and used this quote "For this child I have prayed- 9/16/2010". I don't have any casual "friends" on facebook- just close ones that it would cost a fortune to actually call because  they're long-distance. I did make sure to call all of my family first before I did the facebook announcement.

  • We're not going to make a FB announcement.  We'll telling our families and friends once I'm in the 2nd tri and hopefully keep it off FB until I decide to tell work.

  • Last time I said, "DH and I are pleased to announce that are baby butter bean will be joining us on June 16, 2010."  Then my baby died.

    I don't think we will do a FB announcement this time. If we do it will not be until after the big u/s.

  • Once we tell our families, it will be on FB within hours, even if we BEGGED them to keep it a secret.  So, we are telling the families this weekend and then I will probably make a FB post Monday.  I'm not going to do a status update or anything, just a hint because I am fairly close with a lot of people on FB and I don't want to make 25-50 phone calls or send out a mass email.

    So, I took this today and I'm going to post it.

    We've been really open with our TTCAL journey and as much as I appreciated the prayers and good thoughts from so many, I want the same through pregnancy :)

  • i don't plan on making one at all.

    my friends and family will know (a few do now, the rest after the 1st trimester) and everyone else will either figure it out if my closer friends start posting stuff, or when i post baby pictures.  

    i do admit the picture of a jar of prego cracks me up.

  • probably something along the lines of:  "you know that thing you guys guess everytime I have a slightly ambiguous status?  well if you guessed that now, you'd be right."

    then I would sit back and see what kind of smartass remarks my friends would come up with.

    it's not going on facebook until I'm at least 12 weeks though.

  • I'm going to make a post similar to this:  Well folks, we finally killed the rabbit. 

    The people that get it - GREAT - for those that don't, we won't be explaining. 

  • We haven't announced yet but we will in the next couple weeks.  We now live about 3,000 miles away from most of our friends so the long distance calls will kill us so we will tell most people via Facebook.  We will tell all family and a few close friends via phone.  Not sure how yet :)
