Pins & Needles

B and i share a facebook account. it's true. we're one of those couples. we've just seen way too many marriages, relationships, and even friendships ruined on there, so we opted for safety in numbers, so we can help censor each other and prevent the drama.
totally beside the point, so...anyway... yesterday i updated our status. it simply said "B + carlia = excess of awesome". i'm not one of those publically mushy people who would post something like "i love B so much", "can't live without B!" or, my personal fave "after all these years, our love continues to grow". sappy, cheese, blah blah blah...makes me want to vomit. plain and simple, usually funny, at least attempting to be witty - that's the way i facebook. who knew such an innocent statement that had nothing to do with anything at all would snowball the way it did! i had updated it on my smart phone from work on a whim and about a half hour later B texted me to ask what was going on. apparently, that little comment had stirred the baby-watch pot. friends commented, trying to prod me to explain what i meant, and i even got a few texts. it's funny how, when people know you're TTC (which everyone who knows us in real life knows this about us), they are constantly on the lookout, waiting for that baby bump to spring up or for you to "accidentally" let it slip that you might be expecting a little surprise. so, what did i do, you ask? nothing. i just let that pot simmer, never responding or explaining. we'll see how long it takes to fizzle out or boil over. mean? maybe. funny? heck yes!

LOVE IT!!! Sometimes it's hard when everyone knows what's going on in your bedroom...or in my case, at the clinic...They think every comment means something BIGGER than it really is....I posted how I was worried about my procedure, and every one assumed we were doing IVF...WRONG!!! Just a hysto..Oh well...

I am always wondering what people mean by their status'. I am always left wondering does that mean they are pregnant? I never actually ask though. It would be easier if everyone just was direct and made pregnancy announcements rather than (I am SOOO hungry all the time, half way there, etc.) Glad you stirred the rumors up though, pretty funny!
