Facebook Adds 'Expecting A Baby' Option

Facebook has added a bunch of new "Life Events" as options to add on your Timeline. One is "Expecting a Baby" and you can include gender, the due date and add a photo. Will you add this as a Life Event on Facebook?

All the various Life Events options they've added are kinda hilarious. They include Broken Bone, Removed Braces, New Tattoo or Piercing, New Eating Habits. Really?

Re: Facebook Adds 'Expecting A Baby' Option

  • Haha...I will not be adding this to my timeline but some of those options crack me up! I can see some people I know adding New Eating Habits and then quietly deleting it a few days later when they can't stick to the diet.

  • We will not be. In fact we are keeping our pregnancy off Facebook altogether.

  • I think it's a fun idea. I've tried to add "expecting a baby" but I can't find it unde the options. Maybe it's preggy brain. I can only find the option to load a child that's already born... If anyone works it out, let me know!

    This is us, we've posted nothing about it on Facebook. I let the people I want to know read my blog.

    Hmm really? From your profile, Life Event > Family & Relationships > Expecting a Child. If you don't see it, maybe they haven't finished making it available for all profiles just yet.

  • I'm not going to do it. But we are also not putting much about the pregnancy on fb. We put one announcement and that will likely be it.

    This. I have too many friends who are still struggling with infertility and I do not see the need to unnecessarily bring them pain when they log onto fb. They know I'm pregnant and that's enough.

    Finally pregnant through the miracle of embryo adoption after 3 1/2 years TTC.
    One angel in heaven: 2/23/2010.
    Adopted 6 embryos in September 2011.
    FET with 2 perfect embryos on 4/26/2012.
    Beta #1 (12dp5dt): 315
    Beta #2 (14dp5dt): 714
    Beta #3 (16dp5dt): 1909
    U/S 5w4d: One perfect little bean.
    Ecstatic to be pregnant; but sad that one of our embies joined his/her sibling in heaven.
    U/S 6w5d: HR was 123 bpm; absolutely perfect!

    This I totally agree.
