Dear Pregnant Women

Dear pregnant women who are friends of friends,

Ladies, I barely know you in real life, so please stop friending me on FaceBook just so you can increase the number of people who know that you are pregnant. I'm happy for you, but a bereaved mother is not the person who needs an update on your heartburn and other pregnancy troubles. I wish you a healthy pregnancy and a live baby. And now I must unfriend you. Peace.


  1. seriously.

    did I tell you I joined FB a couple weeks ago under a made up name and "friends only" privacy setting? this has helped reduce the usual troubles of FB. I like it this way!

  2. One of the best things about growing older has been moving out of the pregnancy-announcement stage.

    I wish I'd had your letter back in the day. Many times.

  3. I can't tell you how many people I have "hidden" on my FB for those reasons. It's too hard to read when you're not in that stage...

  4. Amen sister. I have a announce you are 10 minutes pregnant on Facebook, you get the "Hide." Sheesh.

  5. I know, right! Its crazy! I hide them once I see that this is what's going on or delete them all together depending on how often they update. Ugh.
