Some people look for things to be offended about.

Everything can't be off limits.  I think it would be offensive if you pulled that prank on/around someone you knew was struggling to conceive, but you don't always know everyone's situation.

are you wanting to know if the meme is offensive or announcing a fake pregnancy is offensive???   the meme is in no way offensive,  and to me I find announcing fake pregnancies is in very bad taste rather than offensive.  I am also an infertile woman who went through 7 years IVF with egg donor so  I can kinda see it from both sides.   ( I now have 2 gorgeous kids btw :)  )

If you have never dealt with infertility or a miscarriage than I would imagine you couldnt relate.

Therefore are insensitive to others in this emotionally painful situation.Enjoy the joke because of course its not on you.

I don't think DH would appreciate that joke, but he never struggled with infertility...

The butthurt is just strong with some people. We live in a snowflake world where everything is offensive. We should probably just do away April fools as to not hurt anyones feelers.

My sister is infertile.
They took her uterus, not her sense of humor.
I don't think it's insensitive at all. It's a joke.
