not funny

Just logged onto facebook. This may be the last straw. The Hubby's cousin posted "Wow 12 weeks is a long time to keep a secret. We are happy to announce we are expecting our 3rd little bundle of joy!" I got a little upset, but I am surprised at how well I took it. I am in a good place right now. Well I was until the next thing she posted.

"Hehehe Happy April Fool's Day!!!"

Are you kidding me!!??

Fuck you!

I am so tempted to write to her and tell her it wasn't funny. The Hubby doesn't want me to.

  1. Ugh I have had 3 different facebook friends post about pregnancies today... then state "haha April Fools!!!!" One even had posted "it is twins!" Ugh. Not funny at all. At all. Fertiles just have no idea. I may need to avoid facebook for the rest of the day for sure.

  3. Honestly, I would post something. But I've also come out about our infertility on facebook and would make it clear to everyone on my list how hurtful stuff like that is.

    I'm sorry that those people are so insensitive.

  6. I can't even put into words how angry that made me!!! I don't know how you are able to control yourself from sending her a message! I have to tell you, I deactivated my account (you can reactivate whenever you want) and it has been the best thing in the world for me. I am sure I will go back on someday but it was bumming me out big time. Love your new header and the ball of yarn is so cute :)

    1. Thanks! I deactivated it yesterday. I wanted to send her a note but respect my Hubby and don't want to start any family issues. If it was my family I would say something right away.

  7. Yes that was a horrible prank to play especially if they know how long you've been trying.

    1. They don't know specifics but when they asked us at Thanksgiving when we were gonna have kids my Hubby told them we are working on it but we have issues.

  8. GA! Why do people think that this is even remotely funny or original? Bleh. You are showing admirable restraint.

  9. :( That sucks. I also hate the proposal ones, but those aren't as common... I WONDER WHY.

    In general I don't like april fools jokes, but I don't like pranks. I hate that most of them are good news / bad news things, so you either get excited or sad, but either way you write something nice and supportive to your friend only to find out it was a joke. It feels abusive to friendships. Especially when it's something like a pregnancy announcement!

    In grad school I posted my april fools joke (the only one I have EVER done) which was that I was done with my thesis already. PEOPLE HATED ME. They did not believe it wasn't true. I got a lot of flack for it. HA! Well, it was my first and last time I ever did an april fools because I hated the feeling of duping my friends and making them mad/jealous of my thesis, even though the ironic thing was I had just started the whole thing over and was months behind!

  10. Ugh...people can do the dumbest things. Why do they even think that is funny? I deactivated my facebook a while ago and thought about getting back on, but when this kind of stuff happens I don't ever want to go back.

  11. Same things happened to me today too! Except it was my cousin who has adopted all her kids... so I thought maybe she was infertile too (I don't know her very well). Turns out it was a joke. Boo!!

  13. ugh. I am so so sorry! That "joke" is so frickin' old. I had ONE person SORTA do it...she posted a pic of her first baby's ultra-sound from 3 years ago...but that was all. Either way it's so old.

    don't take it to heart.

  14. I was mad all day about that. I saw a few that said they were pregnant and then one that is pregnant said she was having twins. It makes me so mad how inconsiderate some people can be.
