So I came the rest of the way out today - FB. All the people who see me weekly already know, my far away family found out (or will find out) when they got/get their holiday cards, so I decided to go ahead and sort of announce.

Here's the pic I used and then left it up to them to figure out:



Right away someone asked if I was trying to tell them something
melissalaw, humnck and EverydayJoy like this.

Cute idea! I like it! I bet it makes it easier having announced it on FB. That way you dont' have to watch what you say.

Cute! We decided not to announce at all. I'm still too worried. DH has told everyone he knows. But FB is off limits.

Thanks. Yes it will be nice to say why I'm feeling cr@ppy or something instead of being vague.
Leia I was sure at the beginning I wouldn't announce on FB either. But most of my 'friends' on there are family who will/did find out with their cards, or are people who see me every week. I'm still terribly nervous.
DH swore at first he wasn't telling anyone at his work until the baby was born. But he's told at least 4 people there now.

Yay!! Very cute idea. I didn't come out on facebook until around 24 weeks but it was nice when I finally did.

That's a great way to announce! I'm not planning to share on FB myself- I use it mostly for work/community-related relationships, not family or friends.

What a cute idea! We came out on FB after the doc said we were in the clear (well, as much as we could be anyways). I love seeing how creative people get with their announcements I've seen flip flops in the sand, the parking sign that says "for expectant mothers", older kids with the cute shirts and sayings, so fun!

Cute idea! I'm kinda slow, that one would take me a few minutes and then it would hit me! LOL.

So glad it is now public knowledge! Enjoy all the well wishes!

Yeah I figured if people got it, they got it, if they didn't oh well they'd find out at some point. Most people on my FB are close friends, family, and a few of the PTA/school staff I see weekly.
