There’s no such thing as a jinx. Don’t sweat it. I don’t see how it was mean if they thought it was funny.

I don’t really think it’s bad luck, but I do agree that those “I’m pregnant!” or “I’m engaged!” jokes on fbook are not funny at all.

my mind says oh that’s silly, but my crazy says “TOTALLY JINXED”. Hehe – I don’t like that kind of prank, personally b/c there is no funny climax or joke. It’s just a let down.

Welll…I don’t believe in superstitions…but that was not nice to fool everyone! Some older people were probably really hurt by it.

I can agree that those jokes definitely aren’t belly busters but as far as them jinxing themselves, I don’t fully believe in that. I know I may do things to not jinx myself but I don’t live my life in fear of possibly jinxing myself.

I don’t believe in jinxing oneself, but I can see where this would annoy those who wished them well! My coworkers tried pulling something like this, only using me without telling me. They told my boss i’d called in with horrible morning sickness, and oh, by the way, I was pregnant! Lucikly, he didn’t believe them, but I was confused when I showed up to work later that day (I work Part-time there) and had my coworkers asking why I’d shown up, since I’d called in baby sick. *rolls her eyes*

I think they are funny – I saw one girl saying she was pregnant with twins (she just had a baby 2 months ago – I guess that’s what made it funny)

I don’t believe in jinxes!

I don’t really it’s jinxing a future baby. I just kind of think it’s in poor taste. I guess I just have a different sense of humor.

@Future Mrs. Martin – That is an “Oh Crap” moment, lol… If I read that I would probably freak out like “what are the chances”.

I don’t think it’s a jinx, but I do agree that those kind of jokes are stupid and annoying.

Ugh.  I HATE stuff like that.  April Fool’s Day is, hands down, my least favorite day of the year, and it’s because of crap like that.  It’s just so juvenile and attention seeking, and it takes advantage of other people’s good natures and pleasant impulses and then throws it in their faces and laughs at them.  Makes me mad.

I think it was a poor joke on their behalf. I think it was nice of you to write them a private message and you shouldn’t feel bad for ‘jinxing’ anything. I’m sure they feel foolish.

I don’t believe in jinxes, but I think Facebook-wide jokes like that are inappropriate. If you’re going to pull an “I’m pregnant” April Fool’s joke, pull it in one locale with a certain group of people (say, your parents or in laws) and out it as a joke pretty directly. This isn’t ‘Nam – there are rules.
