So heres the thing. I've been planning this for ages and as my 20 week scan was yesterday I was meant to be doing the announcement today (announcing on fb is because of family being all over the world). My friend knew what I was doing and even took the photos for me... She's just done her own fb announcement at 3 weeks pregnant....

Im probably being a bit over dramatic but I'm quite hurt after she knew what I was doing... I dont want to "steal the limelight" or looking like I'm copying....

Do I still announce it today or wait a few days?

Do you have all the same Facebook friends?

3 weeks is crazy, how has she even got a positive test so early!

Three weeks??! She's trying to steal your thunder quite blatantly I think. I'd leave it a few days.

Her fb announcement was I picture of a clear blue test saying 2-3 weeks along. Obviously she hasn't had any scans yet. I feel betrayed but I think a lot of it is hormones

Definitely trying to steal your thunder I'm afraid. She sounds jealous of you. Give it a few days and do yours as planned. It's madness of her to do one so early any way.

She definitely sounds like she's trying to steal your thunder BUT who is the announcement for? You said she's a friend and the announcement is for your family members so the chances of her having them on Facebook are slim to none. Announce it anyway. Plus, an actual established ultrasound & belly are more interesting than a picture of a pregnancy test!
Another thing is that you can't control what goes on around you so don't worry about others and do what matters to YOU x

Id like to think it's the hormones, as otherwise that was a shit thing of her to do

Update:
I waited a few days to announce and not long after I did i got messages from her saying I should have waited another month 🤷🏻‍♀️. I'm no longer talking to her

She sounds nuts so you are well rid of that friendship. In saying all that I just don't get the whole big announcement thing.

She sounds crazy

She sounds insane OP!! Get shut of her for good

The girl sounds unstable. I don't think she could steal your thunder in the way she announced as I think unfortunately when people see a positive pregnancy test and realise she's barely missed her period people will be thinking how previous it is to announce so early. Then seeing you are over the first trimester they will know that you've not been the one to hijack any announcements. Personally all that said her thunder is her thunder, your thunder is your thunder, you're equally entitled to just as much fuss and neither of your happiness should detract from the others. In short, you're posting for you and your family not for likes and attention so enjoy your special time. She's been wildly unreasonable to suggest her announcement should affect yours, advise her to get help for self Indulgitis/all about me syndrome. X

OMG. All this facebook stuff.. and now it's causing a problem with pregnancy announcements, !!

I remember when I was pregnant , and we didn't tell anyone at all. I had our baby,then told everyone !! It was a lovely shock for everyone.

People aren’t really bothered about other people’s lives! No one will remember who posted what when unless they are involved, like close family or friends or work colleagues who will be covering for you! They don’t give it a second thought after they’ve clicked to the next post. Unless you post and post and post and then they get irritated!

It’s an advertising site on the internet, that’s all. There’s millions of them. Unless it’s your livelihood I wouldn’t take it seriously at all.
