I'm so emotional and this new FB fad is making me cry.

uuuughghhh.  I've been so emotional today trying to decide it I am ready to start IF testing and now this new FB thing where you write "I'm 12 weeks and craving tomatoes" or whatever is making me tear up with frustration.  (I googled it and the # of weeks and food you crave are linked to your birthday... similar to that breast cancer "awareness" thing that went around where you wrote, "I like it on the _____" according to where you put your purse).

Real pg announcements are tough enough.  Fake ones make me want to punch someone.  

I need to pull myself together.

  • So, people are PRETENDING to be PG to participate in this FB trend?

    Weird.

    I would be pissed, too. I say you cuddle with that super cute (but not as cute as my Albie, sorry) cat.

  • I'm sorry.  I saw someone with that post, too, and my stomach got all weird.  It was my uncle's niece by marriage who said it...I thought she was saying she was pregnant and I was upset because I wanted to be the first one who had a "next generation" baby in our family...unreasonable?  Maybe, but it's true.  I can only imagine how much worse it must be when you're struggling with IF issues.  Sad  *hug*

    Surprise! The Sequel is due 12.8.14!

  • This got me this morning too b/c the person that did it would be on her 4th unplanned and not in a great situation. I was so sad and hurt. It's put me in a funk all day. Even to know it was a joke makes me pissed. I wanted to punch her in the throat.

  • Wait, what? This is another awareness thing? Or it's people who are actually pg? I am confused. And a little peeved.

  • I have a few friends who have done this. I think it's dumb. It doesn't raise awareness. People know breast cancer exists. If you want to do something, donate to the Komen foundation or somewhere researching to find a cure and/or provide services to those diagnosed.

  • I'm sorry, Jillian.  I know you have a lot to think about.  I haven't seen that yet, but I am looking forward to it **Sarcasm**

    I hope you feel better. I'm here if you need anything!

    This!!!  It annoys me, especially when what is being posted really has nothing to do with breast cancer awareness nor helping to stop/research/cure the cancer.  Plus, making it about pretending to be pregnant is wrong.

    Once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.
