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.
