My favorite thing is to look at STFUparents.com. They show all sorts of hijacked posts. Yours seem to be reversed though. Trying to be funny, respond with serious! What’s up with people!

@iarebridezilla:  Although I’m not pregnant, I still get lots of unwanted wedding planning advice. Like, my mom’s co-worker told me where to rent plastic arches. Not putting off on plastic arches, but my mom politely told her we had that covered. I think people are just trying to help, but after the one millionth random suggestion, it gets old!

I loved and laughed at each of your posts!!! Geez, I want to be friends with you on Facebook now! All joking aside, the #2 reason we aren’t telling people until we have to is because I HATE unsolicited advice. My favortie is the advise from people who have never been pregnant who give advise based on what they learned watching Lily’s pregnancy (HIMYM).

@iarebridezilla:  haha I think your posts are hilarious. I have a friend who has a similar sense of humor about her own pregnancy, and I laughed so hard whenever she posted. 

But gosh, people can be so brutal. “Sounds like your pants may be too big” Hahaha WTF?

This is great, I love your responses. I love it even more because I think like that without the hormones lol. So when we finally get our BFP I will at least have an excuse to think these things. 

Non pregnant related I’ve gotten status comments like 

Me:  We had the best honeymoon, everything was perfect and I am so excited to get home and start our lives together

Comment: Don’t worry too much, there will be a lot more vacations in your future, just be thankful you had a honeymoon, some people don’t get the luxury

I think the person misread the post or something but people really drive me nuts when they want to give advice, especially since all of my posts on FB are optimistic and happy toned. People really shock me sometimes.

I’ll probably keep it happy during the pregnancy but you bet your butt I’ll be ranting to my husband about the not so intelligent posts, and when he says I’m over reacting I can blame it on the hormones 🙂
