    This is an overshare in my opinion. She could’ve put the same information out there much more tactfully by saying something like, “DH and I would like to start a family some time soon!”

    Oh my I hope for her sake that they don’t have trouble conceiving… Can you imagine announcing that and then having every. Single. Person. You know asking if you are pg yet?

    Definitely overshare. “My husband and I are going to be having a lot of sex!” I don’t want to picture that.

    @mrsSonthebeach:  +1. That would be a much better way of putting it.

    @MrsEdamame:  I think that’s weird and tmi ESP if she struggles to get pregnant people will forever be commenting now

    Nope!!! I let it slip to a few besties that I had my IUD out, but we weren’t even planning to TTC for a long time afterward (like this fall/winter if we’re lucky and all goes right). I think my mom figured out that I’ve taken it out, but I wouldn’t even tell her. 


    It totally creeps me out when people say they’re planning to TTC. I always just worry for them how hard it will be when everyone knows they’re trying and it doesn’t happen right away. 


    I think I would only tell family (and people other than the 3 BFFs) if we were having trouble and their comments were really tearing me apart.

    Way Too Much Information.  I hope they don’t have any fertility issues because having everyone constantly asking if she’s pregnant yet is going to get very old, very quickly.

    Not only its Too Much Information but now that poor girl is going to have everyone asking her if she pregnant yet or not, which in my opinion, i think it just puts more pressure on you and lets say they take forever to get pregnant, which i hope its not the case, then she is going to feel really sad everytime she has to answer or keep them on the loop, you know.  Best wishes to your friend.

    I didn’t tell ANYONE we were TTC much less post it on FB.  It’s a private matter.

    Ick… I had a friend from HS do that, WAAAY TMI! Lucky for her I think it didnt take too long – maybe a few months. I ended up blocking her feed once she got pregnant (2nd pregnancy) she would carry on about every. little. insignificant. thing! Drove me nuts! Plus her pregnancy seemed super super long (prob because we knew the minute she POAS I think)


    When I’m lucky enough to get a BFP I’m not even gonna put that up because the important people will know… If it gets out in passing (ie a photo late in the pg or something) I won’t worry but tbh no one cares about your sex life/desire to have children!
