Today after a lovely nap, I grabbed my phone and opened up my Facebook app to check out what was going on. Much to my surprise, I see a picture of an all familiar thing...two pink lines. I was a little bit sleepy and had to look twice, but there it was.... someone announcing that they were pregnant with baby number two on Facebook. Along with their picture of two HPTs was their size zero pre-pregnancy baby bump at about 14 weeks.
Even after four kids, I still don't like being surprised by those announcements on FB. I don't know why, but I just don't like them. I'm happy that people are able to expand their families when they choose but it doesn't mean I have to follow them for the next few months... that's why FB made the "hide" button. This particular announcement brought back a lot of emotions for me. The first time she posted that she was pregnant was right after I had miscarried back in November of 2010. I distinctly remember standing outside of a Chinese restaurant after I made a nasty statement on FB about people being pregnant. This one had just sent me over the edge because it seemed like everyone could have babies whenever they felt like, except for me.
I wrote this post just about 3 years ago after seeing this gal's announcement. I also remember writing something super crazy using the F-bomb because I just couldn't take it anymore... I'm fairly certain I lost a few "friends" after that and had a lot of people wondering if I was emotionally stable (which I probably wasn't!)
Its weird to put myself back in that place... before I had kids....... but I remember it all like it was yesterday!
