I would leave that one alone, personally.  It’s not a big deal.  If I had a dollar for every time I saw that exact Facebook post, I could retire now.  If you don’t really talk to her much in life (Mrs. Green), then don’t comment on any of the comments.  Just let the status be.

Well first off, please don’t tell her your opinion on if she should have kids.

You could just send her a note saying ‘Hey, sorry about my status last night. I didn’t mean to upset you or anything! I hope you are doing well!’.

Or don’t say anything at all.

Don’t worry about it though.

I wouldn’t say anything to Mrs. Green.  You were simply making a funny observation, she was the one who put her personal info out there.  Just let it go.

I really don’t see why you’d have to say anything to her. You didn’t post anything rude.

I wouldn’t say anything. That is SUPER awkward.

I wouldn’t worry about it.

Before I got engaged, I had this same observation once and posted one of those “e-card” pictures that said

“Everyone I know is getting married or pregnant, 

I’m just trying to get drunk!”

It was kind of an insider with my best friend (we are both in our late 20s) because we constantly joked that we were going to be the only people at our HS reunion that weren’t married and didn’t have kids.

People shouldn’t take offense to what you said, and you shouldn’t feel bad about it.

@BooRadley:  +1. It was a light hearted post that she then inserted her personal life into.

Although maybe she needs a friend to talk to, and you can certianly just check in with her and see how things are going from time to time. But let the FB status go.

I agree with PP’s. Don’t say anything. It may make her feel worse, and it seems kinda weird that she would post that so publicly.

People like Mrs Green wind me up. She’s like people who write “Whatever. Didn’t want to be happy today anyway!” just so people ask them what’s wrong.

You didn’t ask her anything. You didn’t force her to write that. She’s just attention seeking.

Although if you do feel bad about it, then I second @Birdee106 and think that is absolutely the right wording to send to her if you wished.

I wouldn’t say anything at all. And don’t worry about feeling like shit, or offending anyone. I posted this the other night on my twitter account.. I didn’t do it to offend anyone and if they got offended, then oops!:

I agree with the others who say don’t say anything to her.

And she’s only been trying two months? Sounds way early to be saying she “can’t get pregnant”!

I’m not sure that trying for a few months means she can’t get pregnant anyhow.  I could see feeling bad if you knew she actually couldn’t have kids and it slipped your mind, but not getting pregnant the first time you have unprotected sex is not the same as not being able to have kids.

TBH, if there’s someone reading that who really truly can’t have kids, I’d think they’d be more offended that she’s saying she can’t get pregnant when they just started trying.

Don’t worry about it, it’s nothing to feel bad about.
