Theres a girl on my facebook that i met through netmums who keeps puttin statuses sayin she bleedin n has stomach ache n is goin to drs etc, this mornin she put "not feelin well at all, lost alot of blood again last nite " then in the comments she says that shes had a miscarraige... is it just me that thinks facebook is not the place to write about things like this?? Xx
Ahhh, everyone's different. Would I post about a misscarriage? No if it was early... Yes if pregnancy had been announced. Some people do overshare but to be fair she can post whatever she wants on her status... and if she's miscarrying she probbaly could use the support rather than judging or questioning how she's shared it. She could be calling out for support by doing it.
I don't agree with posting every little detail of your life on FB, like when i've had an argument I wont go writing about it unless it wasn't that serious and just fancy ranting a little bit and getting some replies to make me feel better. But everyones different, and I feel that FB is a place where you should feel like you can say whatever you like, and get things off your chest. It's up to her what she writes on there, and maybe she was scared and wanted some support from other pregnant mums who may know whats happening?
When I was pregnant I posted "having really bad tummy pains, not sure what this is?" because I wanted to know what I should do from other mums I knew! And it's easier than phoning them all individually, especially when I didn't have half their numbers anyway.
Really it's a bit harsh if she feels she has to censor what she wants to rant about just because someone might be like, "keep it to yourself". Maybe she hasn't anyone in her close life to talk to about these things?
And yeh, you can always block her updates if it bugs you
I personaly wouldnt unless at was a later miscrariage and then still wouldnt say it outright but I cant blaim her in the slightest for seeking a bit of attention if she is going through this at the moment.
Maybe she doesnt actualy have alot of close RL friends.
I use things like this and facebook (although I dont right personal stuff on fb) because I dont have any RL friends around my way.
Since I moved here iv never made any friends, all the girls at work ar alot younger and go out drinking and clubing all the time which just isnt for me (maybe 12 years ago) and all my RL friends that I have grown up with or gone to school with are now scattered around the world.
Its not like shes posting shes just been for a poo or anything (yes I had a girl on my fb like that)
As for being angry about what someone else eats even if they are pregnant, I just realy dont get why at all
I overshare with photos and status updates of how much I adore my little man All the time! However, I will never air my dirty laundry! NEVER! I just feel that what happens in my home is nobody's business! However, they are ALLOWED to know how much my little boy means to me and I proudly show him off! x
