facebook when you go to L&D

mobile: facebook when you go to L&D

We will not be updating our status when we head to L&D. I have many friends that have..including one that got sent home for false labor. Besides that fear of not truly being in labor, its a time I want to cherish with family...not hundreds of fb friends. After we have LO and tell our families, we will make an announcement then.

What are you planning on?

Re: facebook when you go to L&D

  • I don't want to, buy my fiance is all about the booking of faces.

  • We will also wait until we get home. Last time we posted something on FB when DS was born and we had a whole parade of unwanted visitors. It was amazing how many people that we had not seen in YEARS that showed up uninvited and unannounced to my hospital room.

     

  • No way. I haven't even posted about pregnancy, so there is no way I would post about going into labor.

  • we won't be announcing on Facebook at first, not because we don't want to share with everyone, but because my family has zero respect for our wishes of not wanting any visitors at the hospital. so we will send out a text to our closest friends to keep them in the loop, and then announce to family and the world when she's already here.

    That sounds like a nightmare.

  • Like a lot of you have said, DH and I are not going to post on FB until LO is here and we are settled.

    eta: We are also going to ask anyone who does know we are in the hospital (family and really close friends)  not to post anything to FB as that is our news to share and not theirs.

  • Nothing from me until we're home. And family has agreed to hold off as well.
  • No facebook until LO is here and possibly even a couple of days after.  And anyone receiving phone/text updates will be heavily threatened about posting on Facebook.

  • In the past, me make a "welcome baby" post a day or two after baby arrives. But that is all.

    I do not really want people to know when I am in labor. I learned with my first that family just drives me and DH crazy; you constantly get texts, emails, and calls asking for updates. So the second time and this time we will tell our parents and his siblings. That is all until after baby girl arrives.

  • We might text close friends and family when we are admitted, but probably won't put anything on FB until she is actually here.

    I can't wait for the "im getting a divorce" post in 5 years or so because your husbands were fed up with your disgusting chair asses from playing on the knot all day and getting fired 4-5 times for not doing any work. you guys are all winners!! ~ Laur929
  • Immediate family will know when we are at the hospital but no Facebook until we are all home safe and sound.

     

  • No, I don't plan on being on my phone while in labor at all. We have a list of people we want to make sure know that Hannah is on her way, but the rest of the world can find out once we are all settled.

  • I didn't Friday when I was there and I don't plan on doing it when we go next time either.

  • MIL posted the pregnancy within a day of us telling her (just shy of 5 weeks), we will call/text her when we are at the hospital and most likely she will post something again.  They are all out of state, so there is no risk of surprise visitors. I completely understand not wanting other people sharing your news, and I would prefer it that way, but if it happens I'm just gonna let it go.

  • I will probably post after she is born and we are both given a clean bill of health. The people closest to me already know when my Csection is. I don't want a bunch of visitors because I will most likely be drugged out.

  • Who would honestly want a play by play of labor? No thanks. 

    I won't post anything until a day or two after and only family and close friends will know via text or email. Plus, I will make sure DH adds a no posting on FB rule until we do.

    It was a nightmare mixed in with a whole lot of WTF. It was nice of people to care but I don't understand how hospitals became nightclubs and people just show up whenever.  The people that showed up were randos from college and HS that we had not seen, let alone talked to, in a long time and they acted like it was completely normal to show up.

     

  • I have begun to hate Facebook now that I'm pregnant... I don't know how to prevent my family and my exes family from posting my sons pics up on fb. I hate to even think of it.

  • Nothing will be posted on FB until we are ready to announce her arrive. Relatives already have been instructed of this.

  • Meh, I don't care either way. I might have DH do a couple updates. Almost all of our family and friends are about 3 1/2 hrs or more away so I don't think there will be any surprise guest. Plus FB is the only way I keep in touch with most of them.

  • I definitely want to keep it as private as possible. I would like as much bonding time with my little boys that I can get before the flood of visitors start, especially since I want to breastfeed and really want to focus my full attention on my babies. I know that we will have to make this extremely clear to our family, ESPECIALLY, my MIL who posts literally e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g on facebook. Everything. I don't want pictures of our babies posted either until I'm ready for it.
    Married for 3 years to the love of my life! TTC for over a year. Started seeing RE in April 2012. Lap in July revealed endo covering left ovary and part of my bowels. This will require extensive surgery by a specialist. RE wants us to have babies first because surgery could compromise my ability to carry. Started first round of IVF in August. Ten follies retrieved, eight fertilized, two frosties.


    IVF #1= C/P
    *Frozen Embie Transfer scheduled for end of Nov/Dec. Going to transfer 2 frosties if all goes according to plan*

    FET # 1 [12/18]: Transferred two "beautiful" embies.

    Beta # 1: 126 [BFP!]

    Beta # 2: 546

    Beta #3: 1618!!

    Beta # 4 - 4954!!!!!!
    Ultrasound 1/18 - Two heartbeats at 121 and 136. Fraternal twins!
    Um, is this really happening?!

  • We haven't even announce that I'm pregnant on FB so I'm not planning on announcing when I go into the hospital. Once we tell all of our family and close friends we will make the announcement. With DD I changed my settings so no one could tag me in a post unless I approved it until I was ready to share. Im also having a csection but only a few people will know the date.

  • Might update when I know that the Thundercats are go, but most likely we'll wait till he's here. Certainly no dilation updates etc. Ha.

    This for us as well. Privacy is really important to me, plus I think I definitely have one or two people who would push their way into the hospital before I was ready to see anyone.
