OP I do find the comment inappropriate to make on an 'announcement post'. Her reply should have been like everyone else's - congratulations.
If it was an in-joke (although why then was it deleted?) then it should stay exactly that - an IN-joke, meaning not shared with the entire FB world where others don't understand the implication.
I don't think making a comment like that was nice at all when she was sharing her exciting news with everyone, regardless of how close they may be. There's a time and place for comments like that.....

Doesn't bother me. Everyone's dynamics in a friendship are different. That could be how they talk to each each other. Is your friend upset?

Having just announced the pregnancy I probably would have been taken back by it. Further along in the pregnancy I laughed at comments like that as DS was a shocking baby too. I guess it's not what you want to hear first when you announce it.

I had a "friend" who lost her baby at 6 weeks, I announced that I was pregnant on Facebook at 10 weeks after a scan an doc found everything to be really normal. She rings me up and has a go at me for announcing it before 12 weeks and ended it with "go f@$k yourself"
I get she may have been upset over her little bub lost but to say that to someone who is excited over a pregnancy is down right rude.

When I announced this pregnancy on FB my aunt put up a status only 5 mins later saying " some people need to be educated in contraception"
I was soooo cross and what's worse she works at the hospital I am giving birth at!

Zeddie that was quite rude of your friend chance of miscarriage after having a scan and seeing healthy bub at 10 weeks is 1%, much different to losing a baby at 6 weeks!
I understand your friend would have been very sensitive to the situation but telling someone to go eff themself because they announced their pregnancy at 10 weeks is entirely wrong!

I think people are far too easily offended and politically correct these days.
However, I realise the OP is just sharing her opinion/feelings on the post and that is ok.
But for others to actually respond on FB with offence to things they don't understand, hence feel offended (even if it's not directed at them), I think is beyond ridiculous.
FB is making the world far too precious!

We were suppose to be good friends so stung a bit more. Oh and she also said I only got pregnant for attention! Needless to say we are no longer friends anymore

I personally wouldn't think anything of that? I think it's probably a private joke... maybe her bub didn't sleep well.. and she was talking about that.. not neccessarily anything bad. Also remember that over facebook and through any device where you can't hear tone/read facial expression things can be taken the wrong way. I'd say she wrote that comment with good intentions.. read it and thought it might be taken the wrong way by others (which it obviously has been) and decided to delete it. I've done stuff like that all the time. If you're worried about it ask your friend.
