If you follow me on any kind of social media, you recently found out we are pregnant! We are feeling blessed and super excited. The tricky thing about that first trimester: for most women there is a lot going on -- cravings, nausea, waiting, wondering (in my case a fair amount of staying off my feet due to doctor's orders) -- but you are usually not publicizing your good news quite yet. Hence all that good twitter fodder goes unpublished.
It's probably better -- for you. How many tweets do you need about how I am now eating like a man or how I'm tired and crazy? Honestly!
Well, need it or not, here is a little bit of what's been going on behind the scenes for us -- in 140 characters of less. All but one of the would-be tweets below are from me with my shiny new twitter handle: @valerie_photo.
You know your husband's been taking good care of you when you finally make your own snack and think, "I better not mess up his kitchen."
I treated Josh to pizza, burgers, froyo & Shipley's donuts all in the past 3 days due to the baby I'm growing. Well, I ate all the pizza.
Really? The rubber band trick on my jeans already?! #secondpregnancy
This one from @jjellis: My adorable pregnant wife says, "I should've asked for two Whoppers!" The huge burgers people, not the smallish chocolate candy.
I should've made a second sandwich while I was up. #pregnancyhunger #pregnancynonenergy
Gavin said, "I'm gonna eat a lot of breakfast, and then I'm gonna have a baby."
I'm such a slob when I'm nauseous. #pregnancyproblems #sorryhoney #stilljustgonnasithere
Nauseated...whatever... #pregnancyproblems #grammarproblems
My breakfast from CfilA tasted weird. Of course, sugar snap peas taste like
soap and tap water like fish, so... #coulditbeme #pregnancy
Freshly-squeezed lemonade for president! #pregnancy #cravingsatisfied
