Why do some pregnant women think the entire world wants to know every single bit of their pregnancy and labor AND delivery? Oh my god your not the only one on the planet that has ever done this. Every single moment may be exciting to you but it is not to us. Show us a pic of your kid and shut the fuck up about your mucus plug or water gushing out of your vagina.
Just because your water breaks does not mean you’re in labor. It can take hours, even until the next day. And no, you’re not in excruciating pain when your water breaks. Honestly, for a lot of women there’s nothing to do BUT sit around at home until you are allowed to go to the hospital. It’s a long ass procedure for some. Get your shit straight before being so god damn judgemental morons.
Awww, I think wittle Jen here’s probably done this sort of status update before and has gotten her wittle feewings hurt over the fact that IF you want to share ANY of this at all with anyone, most people would prefer it being no more public than an e-mail, and even then only to the people who actually give a shit.
Jen’s right, just because your waters break doesn’t mean your labour has even started yet. When my friends are having babies I want to know how they’re doing, and all the details. Only because I’ve been through it myself, before that I probably wouldn’t have understood or been that interested. I don’t find these sorts of posts lame at all – having a baby is about the biggest thing you could ever do.
…except maybe the friends and family who support you and want to know about that “shit”.
When you’re stuck in the hospital during the beginning stages of your labor, you’re alone most of the time (as in no doctors or nurses) and you’re bored as hell between contractions. So no, it’s not lame to post about your progress on your facebook, if you have people who actually do want to know how you’re doing, and you don’t want to call 30 odd people to let them all know individually.
Let’s see… your water usually breaks *before* you’re at the hospital, she’s updating on a phone, and as so many others have said, it can take many hours from water breaking to birth. The only lame thing about this post is the comments from the baby haters. It’s not like she posted birthing shots. I love kids and that’d be a bit much for me.
I totally agree with Mandy and Diane Mk, it’s GROSS make other persons picture the image of that!, she must limit to call her husband and mom and they will inform to the persons who cares, she is nasty.
