Thanks for your commiseration @ljd2010 and @CapricaAndrea (also how odd about your mom and her coworkers but the less the merrier!) My husband got her to remove it but not before my mother (who knew that I would be pissed when I saw the status) LIKED IT thereby spreading it to all of her friends (I.e. All of our family ... many of them do not know about the pregnancy and will maybe never know because they aren't in my life). It is really quite odd the fascination with social media like my MIL cant just express her excitement in real life to me or her friends or any of the tons of ppl who know. It doesn't count unless it's posted online somewhere. I feel like the older generation gives us crap about it but they do it at least as bad. I don't want my pregnancy to be fodder/gossip/just another item on the scroll and I know it will be for many of the people on my "friends" list. Definitely time for a purge before I do any actual announcing.
@BabyBump2 That's so frustrating. DH has had similar situations happen many times. On a much less important note, it took freaking MONTHS for them to remove my name from the FRG treasurer account one time and I was really concerned about being liable when I didn't even live there anymore. Hooah, right?! Good luck!

@stokesm21 That falls right into the category of, "you just wait..." which is one of the rudest things ever, and my biggest pregnanvy/parenting pet peeve! Super rude!
