Social media can be a great way to stay connected with friends and family, but it’s important to be mindful of what you share. A user approached the forum and asked, “Am I wrong for telling my wife to stop excessively posting pictures of her belly to Instagram?”

The original Poster’s (OP) spouse, a 34-year-old woman, is pregnant and frequently posts photos of her baby bump on Instagram. OP feels his wife has been “marketing” the pregnancy and is frustrated with the constant posts and stories featuring her belly.

OP had to work a lot more; some weeks, he was not home for a good chunk of the week. Earlier, OP enjoyed checking his wife’s Instagram stories to see what they were up to and what she was doing with their children.

It Became Boring

However, the constant posting of baby bump photos had become boring and repetitive. Even her friends started to get fed up with that. She recently posted a picture of her smiling, and one of her friends commented, expressing relief that it was not another belly pic.

OP talked to her about it and told her he would prefer it if she toned down by posting photos of her belly. They got into an argument, with her saying it was her personal Instagram and that he should not look at it if he didn’t like it.

She also said that he didn’t understand what it felt like. As a result, she is now in a little huff and not communicating with him.

OP acknowledged his wife’s excitement about being pregnant was understandable, and he recognized that she might be bored being out of work.

However, he insisted that she reduce the frequency of posting photos of her belly on social media and that he didn’t want their child’s face to be all over social media either.

Was it appropriate for OP to ask his wife to tone down her Instagram posts featuring her pregnant belly, or should he have respected her right to share her personal life on social media? What do you think? What would you do in this situation?
