Should You Update Your Facebook Profile?
This is up to you. As I sit here ready to deliver our fourth child, I keep thinking that if I had updated my status and my due date came and went – would it let me friends know? And how many messages on Facebook would I get asking me WHEN IS THE BABY GOING TO BE HERE, in which I would shoot off nasty replies 🙂
To each there own! As for me and my uterus, we’re not updating our Facebook status.
