I am seriously thinking of deactivating my facebook for a while because I am soooo sick of seeing girls I graduated high school with announcing they are already pregnant with their SECOND child and I can't even conceive my first. I feel like my facebook wall is just full of ultrasound pictures these days. It's making me nuts, lol. I just had to vent about this for a quick minute because it is driving me up the wall. Does facebook make anyone else crazy?

ME. Every picture is of a newborn baby. And every status update is about the blissful joy everyone is feeling and how all their wishes and dreams have been realized. I wish I was making that up, but no, people actually type those things. And it's nice that they're happy, but to make the fact that they've achieved enlightment their status every damn morning.....ahhhh.

:smileyindifferent:I've deactivated my account in the past, but inevitably, I return.

Word. I completely understand. As much as I'm happy for them I just can't deal with reading about it every day :( That's why I'm no addicted to these boards because I feel a lot more support here :)

I totally said that to my husband the other day! It is so frustrating!! My wall is full of belly, ultrasound, and new baby pics. Most of the people the pregnancy was a surprise and a lot of people younger than I, some in or just of out high school! I have said that before but it doesn't matter, because I go to work and there are 2 pregnant girls in our office now, so I can't escape!!

Ohmygosh, no kidding. I have boycotted facebook a few times this year b/c I am SO tired of seeing what feels like everyone get pregnant this year except me. But after awhile I always go back. But right now I'm thinking I need a break again...facebook is so hard b/c literally a couple times a week another friend of mine is pregnant.

I have to agree with most of you, I always delete it and then go back! I don't know why I need facebook so badly... ah the internet is so addicting. :P

And Sydney, I totally agree with you I can't go a week on facebook without someone announcing a pregnancy, I swear.

MrsMoore, thankfully there are no preggo girls at cosmetology school. Hopefully I will be the first. :)

I know what you mean Lex! The ones that drive me even more crazy are the ones that brag about their babies all the time. "Princess has been sleeping through the night since newborn." "Junior never ever cries!" Like, constantly.

Yep, my expecting club/play group from when I was pg w/ DD started a group on FB and just in the past week we've had 2 people announce that they are pregnant! One of them is having her 2ND baby since our 2yo's were born! Grrr!

Oh ya I feel the same way...I know like 8 friends that are due between nov and march. It is so hard to watch their bellies grow when I had talked about TTC a year ago and half of them never thought they would be pregnant now...Hang in there..our time will come, at least I have to keep telling myself that..
