Re: Just broke the news...

Ugh, I'm sorry your uncle did that! He could've at least asked like you said. I don't think the "warn them" term is appropriate for him to use either! That's just ridiculous! momma, I'm sorry!

Re: Just broke the news...

That sucks... I 'm sorry that happened to you. I'm a pretty private person and things like this are the reason I plan to hide my pregnancy on facebook until I'm ready for everyone and their mother to know. I want to be able to control who finds out when and you never know what people are going to do with the info that you give them.

And this was my comment underneath:

"And just to clear it up for anyone who is wondering

We aren't Catholic
Or Mormon
It was planned
We know what causes this (and we are very good at it, too!)
We own a television
We are not finding out the gender
We are having another home birth"
Lol! I agree, if I was your "friend" I would have "liked" this too...

He didn't bother calling or walking across the street to our house to ask if they knew yet. I wanted to wait until they got home to surprise them. It was not his place to tell them. Even if he thought by my announcing it on fb, that it would get back to them before they got home, he could have told me and let me make the decision to tell them myself. And it doesn't seem like they are as happy about it as I thought they would be. I think they're shocked. I feel totally deflated, because I was so excited to tell them. I'm actually more upset that my uncle felt like they needed to be "prepared" for the news, or warned somehow. What the f*ck is so upsetting about a new baby? We can afford our kids and we take good care of them. I swear, I am so on edge. If anyone says anything negative to me, I cannot be held responsible for what comes out of my mouth.
I'm sorry mama. This is terrible.
