    Not entirely the same but I found out through FB that my grandfather had died.... A cousin posted when I was at work & my parents were still at the nursing home, they hadn't wanted to call when I had a long drive ahead. So I got home was browsing FB & found it. Not happy to say the least.

    I have a FB "friend" that very often has status' up about friends being UTD or just had a bub and everytime I read one I wonder if they were ready to share the news...
    Hasn't happened to me but I can certainly understand why people get upset! What I cant understand is why others think they have a right to announce other peoples special news! So very rude.

    No, I haven't come accross this...I would be truly upset if anyone did that to me - particularly since all our issues with ttc.

    Really why do people feel the need to steel peoples thunder?... Oh & Sarah that must have been truly awful to find out about your grandfather that way.
