…Now they all know I have an extreme case of baby fever! Lol, I’ve been posting so much on my nursery inspiration board I’m just waiting for rumors to start.
On the plus side, Darling Husband has a second interview today for a job that actually has health benefits, so TTC might not be years away like I thought it would. Aaand I’m not reading into it too much but last night at the store he wanted to take a stroll through the baby furniture. I’m just sayin’ 😛
*sigh* I would love to spend my entire day pinning adorable baby things, but I really don’t want all of my friends to know that I’m already obsessing over an imaginary baby. Ah well, I’ll find something else to do. Hehe, maybe I’ll actually get some work done.
If you think about it, keep those fingers crossed for my husband. I’m hoping he gets the job. He already has a great one, but the raise and health benefits would be so huge to us!

I agree! I don’t want people seeing my wedding inspiration! I’m holding back all the real photos I have.. I wish we could keep people from following us!
And good luck and many good thoughts with your husband! I know this feeling all too well (job searching).

- Wedding: September 2013 - Old Stone House in Brookyn
Ugh, I’m the same way with wedding stuff. Nobody knows that we are thinking about getting engaged soon, so it was embarassing when people started following my wedding idea board.

I would just make the folder titled “Maybe someday” or something similar just so they don’t jump to conclusions.

Ladies, its time to make ghost accounts- I do NOT want my friends knowing knowing where I got my insperations from 😉

They’re not actually following you necessarily. Whenever one of your contacts joins pinterest, it follows their friends automatically, whether they view the items or not.

Agreed. I think it’s really annoying, especially when it’s random fb friends I barely talk to.

Was gonna say the same thing as @Miss Longcoat. It’s kind of awkward, too, because it makes me wonder how many people got e-mails when I joined pinterest telling them that I’m following them…. Pinterest automatically tells Facebook friends you’re following them which is why you get emails about random “friends” following you.

UGH! I feel your pain! We are pregnant and I want to pin all sorts of baby stuff but don’t want any one to get any ideas! So I have been holding back but it has been killing me!

Lol @JessieK I’ve soo been thinking about a ghost account.
and @Miss Longcoat that is true. I know a lot of them joined and it said they were following me but I can tell they’re never on. But I do have a pretty fair amount of friends that are repinning and commenting on my other pins, so I know they see the baby ones 😛
@MrsMeNow Haha, I titled it “Someday for Baby Swank” I’m thinking of renaming it “For Someday Baby Swank”

Hmmm…well when I joined pinterest I got to choose which of my facebook friends I wanted to follow…it didn’t automatically follow all of them. Maybe it’s changed though. I agree, I don’t want people all up in my baby board!

Whoa, I love the idea of a ghost account. There’s like 10 random fb friends getting married and are like- oh I’m doing that too thanks for the idea! Um hello rando I haven’t talke to in forever!

@PennyLainne Are you meaning you don’t want them to know you’re pregnant yet or you don’t want them to take your ideas? Lol, because there’s also a small part of me that doesn’t want people to jack my nursery ideas. Oh Gawd, I’m such a spazz. Someone put me out of my misery!
ETA: I’m glad I wasn’t on pinterest when I was planning my wedding. It would drive me nuts to see everyone doing the same things as me. Although I know a lot of the wedding ideas floating around are super popular and everyone is doing them, it’s probably the same for nursery decorating. I just don’t want to SEE that I’m unoriginal, like right there in my face! 😛

Yup. Feel your pain. I have an extreme case of the baby rabies but I don’t want to pin anything just in case people start to make assumptions.

- Wedding: August 2013 - Brookfield Zoo
I totally agree… my friend gave me an invite and after a few weeks said “WOW you have a lot of wedding stuff…………..” (not engaged yet, but soon~). Now I have fb friends I haven’t talked to in years starting to follow me, and I feel self conscious of everything I post!
