@SamanthaLovesJames:  I would just tell them. I did the same thing for my wedding and I plan on doing the same thing once the baby is born. Everyone understood why. I just told them it was a private moment and my husband and I wanted to be the ones to share pictures.

We didn’t have visitors until we were ready to announce the birth & we only let immediate family know via phone upon delivery (well more like a couple hours later). We posted birth info the following morning and had visitors after that.

@MrsDTMajor:  That’s a good idea to tell everyone that you and your husband want to be the ones to share it!

You can also change your settings so that you have to approve any photos you’re tagged in. They won’t be posted until you approve it

@Glasgowbound:  But others can still post the photos without tags.

OP, I’d just tell people when they visit. If they take out a camera, tell them that they may take pictures but you would like them not to pput the photos online.

We just outright asked that no one post anything on FB until we had a chance to ourselves.

I agree with everyone, just tell them you want to enjoy your baby for now and to do not wish to have pictures posted publicly.  My husband is very private and I’m sure we’ll have to request the same thing.  You should be the one to share your news, they’ll understand.

We’ve already agreed that we don’t want photos of our baby on FB. We didn’t put wedding pics on FB. Darling Husband doesn’t even use FB. So we’ve already put it out there to our family that we don’t want our babies picture online. Darling Husband told his mom that if she wants to share pictures with her friends or family to send them via email. I think the earlier you let people know the easier it is to deal with when the time comes.

One person put some wedding photos of us on FB and we just reminded them we didn’t want them there and to please take them down and they did.

We struggle with this with my mother since she posts everything everywhere without asking. The bottom line was that we made a rule for her. She can only share pictures we’ve already posted on Facebook. So she can’t upload and share things on her own, but she can share a picture we’ve already posted to one of our timelines if she wants.

We didn’t feel we could tell her not to say or post anything since the baby is part of her life too. But we also needed some kind of control over what is getting posted and when. So that was our compromise.

tell them if they post one word or picture on FB they will never see you or the baby again. Period.

@Mrs. Lox:  That is a great compromise! I was worried about this myself because I do NOT want post-birth pics of me looking like a Sea World exhibit hitting the interwebs…and I’m also weird about totally nude baby pics, or pics of baby still covered in post-birth goo. I would really like Darling Husband and I to be in control of what hits FB and when.

Yeah, I’d just be direct and ask people not to post any pics on social media.

I am also considering not telling anyone I’m in labor until after baby’s here because a girl on my newsfeed gave a straight up play by play of her cousin’s birth – “Her water just broke everywhere! It was a gush!” “She’s dilated to a 10! That’s the size of a bagel! Its go time!” and “She didn’t tear TOO bad, thank the Lord! Just a few stitches!” Omg. If she was my cousin, she would have to be murdered.
