So instead I figured I'd tell you about sonogram photos. More importantly how I feel about people who post 47 photos of their sonograms on facebook. Don't expect most of us to comment or care. If you post 1 photo? That's okay. Especially if it's how you're telling people you're growing a baby in your belly! You can post 1 if your baby is clearly doing something cool .. like giving the peace sign (can babies in sonograms give peace signs?!) or doing a well-known yoga pose (hello, downward dog).
Kind of cool.
Until you read the buzzkill science explanation ;)
If your future child is laying there and looking completely uninteresting for all 47 photos ..what's the point? The only people who really care are ..well, probably just your family. Most people are already thinking '47 photos of a sonogram appointment ..can't wait to see how many future parenting updates I'll need to read from this person'. Yup, that's right. Aside from other parents-to-be and your immediate family, everyone else on your friends list is writing you off as a downer. Sometimes these parents-to-be post photos where the regular viewer isn't even sure there's a baby in there.
Is this an elaborate hoax?! You aren't pregnant at all but want to see how many people blindly congratulate you without even checking to see if they can find a baby in the photo? No one cares enough to look .. they do their duty as a friend or family member to say congrats and suddenly you have an excuse to eat crappy food at all hours and become crazy. Best part of this plan? No dependent at the end of month 9! Actually, the more I type this out, the more I'm thinking this may, in fact, be a completely genius plan. I may do this myself on my facebook. I'll keep my blog readers in the loop as to their reactions ;) I did just have an ultrasound done on my shoulder ..wonder if those people would give me the ultrasound photos?
I would post them on facebook in an album labeled 'Ultrasound'. I bet you most people would comment saying 'Oh I didn't know you were expecting! Congratulations!' or 'How exciting Yvonne' or 'When's the baby shower?'. Here is an example of a shoulder ultrasound:
Think people will notice the lack of baby?!
So, what do you think of sonogram photos? Do you want to see 47 photos of a future baby? Is my shoulder ultrasound a brilliant idea? Do you, like me, hate baby showers almost as much (if not more) than the sonogram photos?
Note: I don't hate babies. Or moms or pregnant women. I just think it's so funny that once you get pregnant you think your sonogram photos are so much more exciting than alllll the millions of women before you who have had the exact same photos. We do not need to document every small detail of our world. Honestly. Enjoy your photos with your parents& the other half of the baby's DNA. The rest of us, honestly, don't care.
