Just came out on facebook, but not really

LOL! Have you received the message for ladies only on Facebook?

According to the rules, I'm 8wks, which, technically, I am. So, I was able to post that as my status. Let's see how well that goes over with family and friends. I'm not telling anyone for real yet, (except my boss). It feels so good to "announce" it, but not really.

No I haven't received the message, guess I'm out of the loop. Supposed to post FB status of how far along? I'm not up for that just yet. My close friends and family know, but I don't share much except giveaways on FB.

This is it!

My facebook status Ok PRETTY LADIES..
It's that time of year again in support of Breast Cancer Awareness!
Remember last year so many people took part that it made national news and the constant updating of status reminded everyone why we're doing this and helped raise awareness!
DO NOT tell any males what the status' mean, keep them guessing And please Broadcast this to all ur female friends to see if we can make a bigger fuss this year than last year
The idea is to choose the month You were born and the day you were born. Pass this on to the girls only and lets see how far it reaches around. The last one about the bra went round the world.
So you'll write... I'm (your birth month) weeks and I'm craving (your birth date) !!! as your status
Example: Feb 14th= I'm 2 weeks and craving Choclolate mints!!
January-1week
Febuary-2weeks
March-3weeks
April-4weeks
May-6weeks
June-8weeks
July-10weeks
August-12weeks
September-13weeks
October-14weeks
November-16weeks
December-18weeks
Days of the month:
1- Skittles
2- Starburst
3- Kit-Kat
4- M&M's
5- Tomatoes
6- Ice Cream
7- Dairy Milk
8- Lollipop
9- Peanut Butter Cups
10- Meat Balls
11- Twizzlers
12- Bubble Gum
13- Hershey's Kisses
14- Chocolate Mints
15- Twix
16- Cheese
17- Fudge
18- Cherry Jello
19- Banana's
20- Pickels
21- Chicken Wings
22- Skittles
23- Gummy Bears
24- Gummy Worms
25- Strawberry Pop Tarts
26- Starburst
27- Mini Eggs
28- Kit-Kat Chunkie
29- Double Chocolate Chip Crunchy Cookies
30- Smarties
31- Chocolate Cake

Re: Just came out on facebook, but not really

By this I should be 10wks and craving starburst - I think there are better ways of promoting breast cancer awareness than this so I didn't copy and paste it.

I do strongly agree, I just couldn't resist making the "announcement".

Re: Just came out on facebook, but not really

My 15yo neice posted this the other day and about broke my heart for a few seconds. It was the first time I had seen the post and it stopped me dead in my tacks. So I promptly txted my other neice and she told me it was another chain thing in FB as a ton of her friends had similar posts. LOL now we are laughing about it. However it would be a good way to come out with out really telling anyone. I have had one friend post a pic of the 6 pregnant woman that were at her baby shower a few weeks ago. I was among the 6 but no one picked up on it yet.

According to that I'd be 8 weeks and craving lollipops which I'm closer to six weeks and I'm craving pickles not lollipops

I thought the same thing when I saw my 17 year old sister post that she was ten weeks and craving gummy bears. I burst into tears and called my mom! I already had a plan to beat up my sisters dweeby little boyfriend

Agreed. I am getting SO sick of these - I've gotten three *different* official support status instructions in the past month alone, along with the annoying plethora of "90% of people won't repost this heartwrenching story about abuse/drug addiction/kleptomania/worm rights" statuses.

I do think it's a cute way to "fake" announce when you aren't ready to do the big reveal yet
