Pregnant women and families are sharing photos and more on Facebook, Web sites

In a world where it hasn’t happened unless it has been shared, parents and parents-to-be are increasingly posting photos of pregnancy tests, bulging bellies and swollen feet, and “Baby’s kicking!” status updates. More than 30 percent of American mothers have posted their sonograms online, according to a 2010 study by global security software maker AVG. By the time they are age 2, 92 percent of American babies will have an online presence.

Baby-bump posts aren’t restricted to Facebook and Twitter pics. Searching “Pregnancy ultrasound” on YouTube.com turns up 5,230 results. There are weekly “pregnancy diaries” full of ultrasounds, sonograms, photos and moms-to-be chattering for 3, 5, 10 minutes at a time about doctor appointments, the nursery, what to wear and what to pack in the hospital bag.
