The Life Events feature of Facebook’s Timeline gives you a way to share big milestones with more impact than an ordinary post would garner. Now Facebook is announcing a new addition to the Life Events family — "Expecting a Baby," which fills a crucial information gap between "New Relationship" and "New Child." The form includes fields for the baby’s gender, due date, and other parent, as well as potentially more amusing entries for "location" and "story." You can also upload an image to make the event a little more visually interesting — the perfect spot for a photo of your 3D-printed fetus model.
