    Yes..I have a facebook friend who made her profile picture a picture of her lovely urinated on pregnancy test.  I’m so glad now it’s a sonogram picture.

    I don’t find this post snarky – I find it totally, 100% the way I feel about putting urinated-on objects on Facebook. I also don’t love ultrasounds or naked bellies, either, so maybe I am just a public pregnancy hater :).

    The only place I notice a lot of pee stick photos is on here – but that’s because theres such a huge TTC community on here.  It doesn’t bother me at all.  It’s not like I can see the pee, it’s not sitting in a cup of pee.  Those two pink lines or plus sign or whatever it is – is the most exciting thing that has ever happened to them and they want to share it.  

    I would post mine on here but not on social media like fb.  (I have never been pregnant yet).  That being said, while I wouldn’t do it, it doesn’t bother me at all when others do.  

    There IS a ton of Too Much Information stuff on fb tho.  I agree that I don’t need to know that your son pooped on the potty today (have seen many of those statuses before).  That kind of news really is exciting to no one but the OP lol

    @FLBlonde93:  while I agree that some things are inappropriate to share on social media, I don’t think pregnancy tests offend most people. Brides on here post their tests all the time and the only thing I ever think is how happy I am for them. Now if someone posted a pic of themselves actually peeing on the stick, that would be another story. I do think this post doea come across as very judgemental.

    I posted a pic of a positive preg test on FB for an April Fools joke I pulled on Darling Husband ( then he was FI). I feel bad now though after reading this post….

    @MrsWrangler:  saying u dnt like something is fine and personal preference… But calling someone low class among other names isn’t appropriate

    There are so much “grosser” things on the internet. No one is posting a picture of them peeing on the stick, so I don’t care.

    I don’t find this snarky. I think posting a picture of something you peed on (and is probably still wet with urine) is crass and isn’t something every person in your Facebook feed needs to see. I also don’t care about how your child’s diaper is exploding with diarrhea or need to see pictures of it. I’m okay with people posting about their kids and themselves, but some topics and photos should really be avoided (does your niece/nephew really need to know about how you got a toilet seat cover suck to yourself when using a restroom at a pool?!).

    @babypearls:  I didn’t see her calling people low class in general, just that these actions were inappropriate and crass. Either way, it’s one woman’s opinion (and mine, so I guess two!) – not worth getting really offended over.

    @somerrae:  +1.

    it’s not a big deal to me. i don’t care, either way. it’s just a photo. i don’t see the big deal. it’s not like you’re seeing nudity or anything disgusting. it’s just a pregnancy test. and any that i’ve seen? have just been the little results window. i’ve never seen anyone show the whole test.
