10 things you should never tweet when trying to conceiveWe've seen some pretty crazy things announced though tweets and status updates, including these 10 conception sharing no-no's.
1. Where you're getting it on
Great, you're having sex! That's really awesome (and, of course, important, if you're trying to make a baby). What's not so awesome, though, is making it known to your all of your friends (and family!) exactly where you and your partner did the deed. If it was in the car, please, spare cyberspace the dirty details -- because the chances of any of your Facebook friends riding shutgun just turned to zero.
2. That you're ovulating
Again, TMI. Think before you tweet: Do my coworkers really need to know that I'm ovulating this week? Will it be awkward tomorrow when I see my boss at work? Chances are, no, your colleagues don't need to know what's happening down there this time of the month. Play it safe! If you partner uses social media, send him a direct message. Better yet? Try texting. (Or talking!)

3. The state of your bodily fluids
We know you're doing an in-depth analysis of what's happening with your cervical mucus, but your recently added friends from grade school don't really need to hear about it. Take a hint, and save the uber personal details for your diary, your doctor, and your partner. They signed up to hear about all your concerns, questions and daily updates -- your online friends didn't.
4. How you got it on
Missionary, reverse cowgirl, upside down or in the shower -- do yourself a favor and don't debate whether the position you used will get you pregnant on social media. Save the gossip for coffee with your girlfriends, a check-up with your gyno, a visit with your fertility doctor, or a late night snack with your partner. To be honest, your Facebook friends would much rather hear about the amazingly romantic meal you prepared instead of the romp in the sheets you had afterwards.
5. The baby names you picked -- even before you're pregnant
We're not saying not to fantasize about having a baby and giving it the perfect name while you're trying to conceive -- many women do it, and we don't blame you! But there's the distinct possibility that your best friend sees the name on your page, loves it and gives it to her baby. Or worse, her dog.
