Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

I've just deactivated my Facebook account. It's become a source of constant baby and pregnancy updates and I've decided I don't need it in my life anymore. I'm hoping it'll be one less thing to taunt myself with.
Anyone else considered doing this?

No, I'm not there yet, but just wanted to give you a huge hug

Thanks Saff, been thinking about it for quite a while and bit the bullet today!

I have done it before but not for the same reason, the only reason I went back was because there were are few people I found it easier to keep in contact with on there. I'm sure not seeing the baby updates will help, to be honest if yours is anything like mine it really is more of a habit going on there so I'm sure you'll be glad you de-activated!
Also sending you hugs x

I left for a while. I found the baby photos/scan photos/pregnancy moans too much to face. I'm back in there now but I just block what I see from certain people.

I did it for a few months, and I only went back on because I missed the ability to stay in touch with a handful of people. When I did go back on, I hiked my privacy setting right up - removed a whole load of people from my news feed, and restricted a lot of people from seeing my updates, and I feel much better for it. Now I only see things from people I want to see.

No but I have blocked a few people due to this. There are people I want to stay in touch with so wouldn't deactivate completely.
Hugs to you lovely. Stay strong xxx

I haven't left but like imp I block certain people who feel the need to inform Facebook about every step of their pregnancy and baby's development. I sound bitter, and maybe I am a little but there we go. They don't know so it hurts no one.

I didn't go on for a week once and find it's best to avoid it when i'm feeling emotional but i have hidden some people, photos of the baby bump every day was just to much. I like to know what's going on with other things so don't think i could deactivate complety.

I need to go on and block certain people, I don't think it's bitter at all - it's self-preservation!

Thanks ladies, it's weird not having it, I normally check it every morning!! It is all about self preservation, I'm trying to avoid situations that make me sad/bitter/jealous!
