I agree 21 yet I still see heaps of people on FB post pics of their deceased loved ones especially their grandparents but I guess it's their Facebook and they can post whatever they like on it !

Actually I have seen parents post pictures of premature still born babies. Not something I would do but if it helps them grieve, then that is their decision. I also would have assumed that she had her child if she hasn't posted something along with it.

It's pretty strange that she would post it so close to her due date, imo. A remembrance of her baby that didn't make it is lovely, but perhaps Facebook isn't the best place to do such a thing. And perhaps doing it so close to the birth of your other child isn't the best time either. It would suck if she looks back at her pregnancy and the birth of her baby with sadness because she was still grieving for her other baby, instead of the happy and exciting event that a new birth should be.

You guys are all missing the picture. Either that woman did not write anything in the description and expected everybody to recognize a 3-year old baby photo... Or OP was lazy and did not take a second to read the description. It's YOUR Facebook Timeline, post whatever you want! No better place for a random remembrance online.

Once someone posted a pic of themsevles posing with their grandma in a hospital as she was dying and then posted it an hour later after the grandma had died and said "miss you already can't believe you're gone"

I'm sure the picture of my pizza with every damn kind of meat they sell is interesting enough to pollute your newsfeed with. If not I don't care. It's in your mind now, but not in your stomach. Hungry yet? I know I am ;(

The closer the due date gets the more she is going to be thinking about her previous baby that she never got to keep. She is going to be feeling guilty that she is having a new healthy one and want to show some memory of her previous one. This is the exact time that shell be thinking about and grieving for her baby the most. There is nothing wrong with her mourning her lost baby.

Yeah, because babies are never early or late, they all pop out right on their due date. They're so convenient! I don't think OP was in the wrong here at all, if a heavily pregnant lady posts a pic of a baby with no words that's what the majority of people would naturally assume.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who saw how silly this comment was. A baby wouldn't even be classed as premature at 2 weeks early, it has to be over 3 weeks before full term to be premature.

As bad as it may sound, I don't think she should be bringing up her prior child no matter how she wants to remember him/her. I say this because she may eventually grow to raise her new child poorly out of grief for the firstborn.

#35, Hey, I was just warning the OP NOT to write that. I mean, it's not like I was actually thinking it. Nevertheless, I always carry marshmallows with me in case my time comes and I get hurled into the fiery pit.

OP, it's totally acceptable for you to assume that the picture she posted was of the baby she's due to have, seeing as she's due in two weeks! If she gets upset over it, she had it coming.

A good friend of mine posted a picture like that as well. She cussed out every your who congratulated her, but she never told anyone she was pregnant. Not your fault because it was a valid assumption.

And this is why pictures should have captions. Captions would have kept this from happening, unless there was a caption, which in that case begs the question: What the hell is wrong with you OP?
