Yes, according to the morning news, more and more women are filming video of themselves as they wait to find out whether the stick they just peed on reveals a baby inside of them or not. It's an agonizing five-to-ten minutes, as anyone who's been through it can tell you, which may explain the reason as to why ladies are reaching out to complete strangers.

Gone are the days of waiting until after the first trimester to share the news pending Mommydom with the world. But celebrating too early — and too publicly — has potential for emotional disaster, with 80% of miscarriages occurring within the first three months. But at the end of the day, oversharers will always overshare — whether it's about their pregnancy news or the awesome night they had and just simply must tell you about. The internet is just an enabler.

i'm sorry, but it has always been my conception that a pregnancy test is something that you take in dead secrecy, huddled up and fearful in a corner of your bathroom, wishing that you back in the days where you still got upset about things like having pee over your hands and not whether or not you've just been knocked up by that guy from shelby's party.

have i been wrong all this time?
