Yeah, people are stupid, it really pisses me off when people do stuff like that. It’s so rude!

This is the exact reason we didnt’ announce our engagement on fb until all family members had been told. It’s not your news to share!

Ugh.  My mom is the same way.  She can’t keep anything off Facebook.  That’s the main reason she and my dad have not been told about their impending grandchild.  If she’s not careful, she won’t find out about the kid until he or she starts kindergarten.

Fiance and I have decided that no one is to know when I go into labor.  Because we live next door to both sets of parents (yeah, that’s as fun as it sounds) we’ll be registering as a private patient so they can’t call the hospital and ask if I’m there.

“couldn’t shut up long enough to let the happy couple announce their baby’s birth and her name on their own.”

After the birth of each of my three nephews, my brother made maybe five phone calls. The rest of the news was spread word of mouth. I don’t think the uncle was trying to rock the boat here… the parents are kind of busy right now, and their loved ones want to know!

I’ve found it rare that the couple themselves are the first one to post on FB anyway- it usually is another family member.

EDIT: Ok, I just read Sugaree’s post, and she has a very good point. There are *certain* family members I’d tell not to post- but we did that with the engagement- “Don’t put anything on FB until we do, because we want to make sure all our special people know.”

I find that older generations don’t know the online social ettiquette that younger generations do. It’s unfortunate but hopefully the couple will forgive the uncle since it’s happy news and a happy time!

I’m a big fan of the don’t tell anyone until the baby is here. I would probably give my mom the heads up but that’s it.

Just wondering, do you know if your friend, her husband, or her mother even care? I’m sure they are all too busy basking in the joy of a new baby to get worked up about this. Plus, if the uncle knew these details, they’ve obviously already let the most important people know. No point in you getting worked up on their behalf if they aren’t concerned.

We didn’t tell anyone until after we’d had the baby – made for an awesome, private, pressure free birth experience 🙂

I hate Facebook. I deleted mine over six months ago and I think the quality of my life has improved.

I hate Facebook for this exact reason plus the whole “I need to tell everybody about what’s going on in my life, even if I’m just sitting on the toilet taking a dump” bullcrap.

Everybody’s different. It’s only a problem if it upsets your friend! If she didn’t say anything about it, then why are you mad?

I had at least 10 friends at the hospital when I had my daughter, along with family, and most of them posted pictures and announcements of her birth before I even saw her…because I had a last-minute c-section…and I didn’t care! They were as excited about her as I was, and it actually made me feel awesome! We also have pictures of her that we wouldn’t otherwise have b/c of them!
