My Family and Social Media

Last night I called my grandma to tell her we are expecting.  I told her to go ahead and tell the rest of the family knowing that word would spread like wildfire without me having to pick up the phone again.  She asked why I didn’t just sent an email and I told her that I’d rather her spread the good news for me.  So you know what she did?  She put something on fac.ebook.  Yep.  Outed me to all of my friends in addition to family.  I figured she would pick up the phone and call my aunts, uncles and cousins.  I had no idea she would tell the whole world with a 7 word comment on my unrelated status.  Oops.  Oh well.  I guess the word is out now.  I fully expect to get phone calls or hurt emails from certain friends who will feel like I should have told them personally.  Oy.  At least all of you, my IF brethren, already knew and don’t have to find out that way.

I now fully expect the IF gods to strike me dead after spilling the beans to the world at only 10 weeks.



  1. OMG…I saw that last night and I was like, “WHAT???” Oh no! Sorry, but anyone who gets upset will just have to understand that this isn’t how you meant things to have happened. I know it’s early, but there’s no going back now, right? Hang in there chicka!

  2. Saw that too! Facebook has done this many a time, I imagine :). Hope you are feeling well!

  3. Wow, you’re TEN weeks already???!!! Have you had another ultrasound?

    You’ll have to blog about how different it is to have one, verses two. I’m definitely interested in your take on the difference.

    Seriously, is the morning sickness a lot less severe?

    10 weeks is a good time to come out!

  4. Your grandma is pretty darn hip, using Facebook! I’m impressed but also understand why you wouldn’t have wanted it to happen that way! Just revel in all the good wishes — you deserve ’em! 🙂
