I am SO SICK of babies getting shoved down my face 24/7 they are all over facebook, there are about 10 people out of my 200 friends who are having babies. I hate reading statuses about them, acting like their children are everything. I understand your pregnant. I DO NOT need to hear about your babie’s moves whether in the womb or not every 5 minutes. I’m over it, I’m about to start deleting people and for a really dumb reason.

@KatyElle: Eh, I only do that if there’s something really offensive. I do wish some of my friends would tone it down but I don’t want to cut off all contact.

@Aure: It’s less permanent for the OP than blocking and deleting though.

AMEN. I seriously know how that is. I am CBC and I have a friend that I went to high school with that has already popped out a couple of kids, had a miscarriage, and is on her fourth pregnancy and third child. We are only 24 years old. Ewwe how gross is that. She posts something related to her pregnancy daily it’s fricken annoying. There are a few others that are also preggers and equally annoying at the moment too. also alot of my friends also happen to be planning weddings or engaged at the same time as well, I have been planning my wedding for two years and all these other people just start popping up all over the place engaged way after me but marrying within weeks or a few months of my wedding. Seriously I say calm down 2012. Why are they all in a rush seems like their all anticipating the end of the world. lol. But I agree with OP get the babies out of my face, and I actually just had a big fight with my mom about her making me invite kids to the wedding, we go through this at least once a week. I am soooo over babies and kids!!!!!

Haha, you know who cares less about your bellybutton popping out then you do? EVERYBODY!
I used to get a daily play-by-play about the colour and consistency of a friend’s kids’ boogies.
Ew. Yes, that friend has been “hidden”.
Also, I think I’m one of the weird people who doesn’t feel that unltrasound and belly pics should be publicly shared. If I ever get pregnant, no one needs to see my uterus and/or stretch marks – that’s private!
ETA: See, not “only” CBC-ers understand! 😛

I dunno why you’d think only CBC’s would understand. I WANT children and I get annoyed at it. They aren’t doing anything harmful but sharing what’s important to them, you dont want to see it? Hide their feed, no biggie. Just case you dont want kids, or I dont care to read every detail about all my friends kids, doesnt mean they should stop posting about it. Maybe their mother or someone who lives in another state has FB just so they can follow their grandchilds every move and DOES want to read about it…….

The girl has issues.. that’s the problem this is all she thinks she is made for. She thought her wedding was better than mine, she only cares about herself.

@KatyElle: I understand that but my feeling is if I am offended enough to hide someone’s posts I probably shouldn’t be friends with them. While it’s annoying it’s not offensive.

@Juliepants: Eww, some friends showed their uterus and all? Way too personal!

@Earlybride: I think she’s referring to the ultrasound. A lot of people share ultrasounds.
I think ultrasounds are cute and all but I don’t want them shoved in my face. Facebook has basically become a 24-hour slideshow. You know how neighbors used to have you over to see a slideshow of their vacation pictures? Facebook is that, times ten, forever (so I say as I hit the “refresh” button on my facebook tab).
People do tend to get a little baby-crazy. It especially happens when you’re at the age where everyone is suddenly pregnant. It’s like a wave of babies.
ETA: I’m also not CBC, but I do understand. The only exception for me is my FI’s father; FI’s parents just had a baby. I love seeing the photos, but I kind of make allowances for them because they’re in their late forties and that’s kind of a “parent” thing to do. I don’t think of people in my peer group as “parents” but “friends who happen to be parents.”

How are annoying facebook posts a CBC only topic? These threads are getting a little out of hand…
Lots of people hate that facebook is basically one big baby album. I get that a lot of people do it so family members can keep up and see pictures of the baby, but maybe they should get a Snapfish for the bulk and only post a couple of really great pictures on FB. I’m pregnant and have never posted anything about it on FB and don’t plan to because nobody cares.
