Gender, Due Date And More

Looking for a clever way to announce to your Facebook family and friends? There is a new Timeline feature to make it easier for you. Check it out!

Facebook pregnant

TechCrunch reported that Facebook will begin rolling out a new addition to its “Life Events” tab -- “Expecting a Baby,” on August 13, 2012. So, if you’ve racked your brain for a few weeks, trying to come up with a unique way to become “Facebook pregnant,” maybe you’ll keep it simple with a subtle Facebook update.

Timeline announcement

In the “Life Events” tab (where you would update your status or post a photo) in the “Family and Relationships” category, you will see that in addition to birth of a child, wedding date and loss of a loved one (among many others), there will be an option to add “Expecting a Baby.” You can enter the sex of your baby, your due date, the baby’s other parent and location.

Slow roll out?

It hadn’t appeared on my personal Facebook Timeline yet, so it may be a slow roll out. So if you’re 8 months pregnant or just tested positive yesterday, keep a lookout for the new feature.

Other ideas

One of the easiest and most striking way to announce a pregnancy is with a sonogram photo. Other moms, particularly those who can’t wait, will post a positive pregnancy stick -- or two (guilty here -- my Facebook pregnancy album began with about 7 pregnancy test photos). If they have older children, dressing them up in a “Big Brother” or “Big Sister” shirt is another good idea, or having them hold a sign saying something similar is cute and exciting.


The timing of announcing a pregnancy on Facebook is ultimately up to the mom and dad -- many will wait until they are past the first trimester and past the phase where there is the highest risk of miscarriage -- or at least after they’ve informed the grandparents-to-be, and mom’s boss, if she works.

CD34 cells (12.5 106 cells) from HD were cultured in retronectin coated bags in serum free medium supplemented with cytokines and exposed twice to GMP grade purified vector at multiplicity of infection of 100, for a total culture time of 60 hours. As reported in Table 2, CD34 cell surface expression (72.8 4.2%) and yield at the end of culture (1.22 0.20) were in the range of small scale experiments, with no evidence of toxicity on bulk cultures or on clonogenic progenitors. In vitro cultured CD34 cells remained always cytokine dependent (data not shown).

Of course, fake designer goods are still wildly popular, particularly with the growth of online shopping. Luxury brands now have to fight cybersquatting, whereby counterfeiters sell rip off merch under misleading domain names. Just last year, Coach won $257 million in a cybersquatting case, seizing 537 domain names selling fake items with a "Coach" label..

We can't leave without seeing her. 15. In which sentence are the conjunctions used correctly? A. My husband and I desperately need some stability financial, geographic, etc. We really don want to move more than a couple of hours from the midsize Atlantic Coast city we live in right now. But there are so few jobs here that excite me, so few jobs in which I might actually use this master degree, and I have this long, colorful, not very illustrious, family joke history of being unable to hold down jobs I not passionately interested in..
