I haven't announced my pg yet. Not even my close friends know. I did tell a couple of friends who I know from an online group many years back. When I told them, I explicitly said not to say anything on FB or anywhere else because it wasn't common knowledge.
Well today I posted something to FB (not in the least bit related to pg) and this one girl replies, "I'm LOL at this. And I really shouldn't laugh at a pregnant woman!"
What the heck??? What is she thinking?? It's bad enough to pull that when she hasn't seen an official announcement...but when I go out of my way to tell her NOT to say anything?
I haven't told work yet, and that one will be difficult to work out. I need to talk to my boss and her boss about it, but I'm waiting for the right time. The LAST thing I need is for them, and all my other friends and family, to find out from some girl on FB. I'm not sure who saw it. There were no comments on it yet, so I think I caught it pretty quick and deleted it. But there were earlier comments on the post, so those people will probably get her comment in an email, and there's nothing I can do about that.
I sent her a message basically telling her I wasn't happy about it, reminding her that I'd asked her not to do that, and asking her not to do it again. People can be really thoughtless sometimes. That's assuming, of course, that she wasn't trying to intentionally out me, which I hope is not the case.
In any event, facebook is a dangerous thing. Hopefully it doesn't cause too much trouble.
Actually, I saw her comment on my phone when I was out, and I couldn't remove it from there. So I frantically called DH and told him to get on the computer immediately, and thankfully he removed it for me.
I hate that people don't think before they post. There's a way to block all comments from your posts and wall. I'm not sure how to do it, but I know there's a way. Just as an aside, I also hate it when people feel it's their business to tell everyone before you can. By the time I got to the school that I worked at, someone at the other school had emailed it to my department and it had spread across the school already!
