Do you plan to update on FB about your l&d? If yes, to what degree? If no, why?

Probably not much until baby is born w stats, maybe a quick labor has started or something, but no major details. I do not post any pics of my kids online at all.

Probably not the labor part, but I will probably post about the baby being born once I'm myself again a day or two after delivery. Not sure how soon I will post pictures. With my DS we waited 2 weeks because we had a photographer take pictures in the hospital for a birth announcement and that was the first picture we posted.

What I do is a simple "here we go" or something similar as I KNOW I'm in labor. it's very alluding and not exact. Some got it. Some didn't. I didn't get back on my phone until after the boys arrived and I posted the birth announcement. Plan to do the same for the third!

2 moms liked this
Im having a scheduled c-section that will be kept a secret except from a few, ds mom dad stepmom mil and siblings. I know that there will be a lot of upset people but when I had ds 5yr ago there were two waiting rooms full of people waiting and people in and out and sleeping on the floor and then 5 full days of people in and out and looking back I really didn't get the time I needed to bond and rest. So this time it will be very low key and when we get settled at home I will take visitors. I know it sounds so selfish but my first experience was just horrible and I think everyone will get over it, I just want to share this with dh.

I don't think it sounds selfish at all!! It is ur prefeance and people just need tk understand that it is a special time for u and ur hubby, if u xlnt want a bunch of people there then ur wishes need to be respected.

I will probably update so people know when I am in the hospital, but I am not giving details on anything. Only thing they may find out is "this hurts like hell" and "baby is here." lol
