Well, I am back, and I have an announcement to make.
I am pregnant.
For the past few months, I have been expecting to give birth to a happy and healthy baby in February 2015.
Before becoming pregnant, I expected normal pregnancy things. You know what I mean; weight gain, morning sickness, food cravings, yadda, yadda, yadda and then boom, I would have a baby.
I was expecting to want a lot of ice cream. I was expecting my hair color to change.* I was expecting to continue blogging. I was expecting to continue running, albeit at a slower pace.
Basically, I expected to continue to go about my normal business for 9 months and to have very few lifestyle alterations besides a 30 pound bump on my stomach. I thought that in February it might be fun to announce on my blog that I had had a baby just for the shock value. Like, “Hey guys, I know that you probably haven’t noticed anything out of the ordinary, but I didn't blog on Sunday because I was giving birth to a new human.” That was going to be my way of letting you all know that I had a kid so that it wouldn't be weird and completely out of the blue when I started to publish posts about my never-mentioned child.
Some of my pregnancy expectations have been accurate. Was I prepared for everything? Nope. Here’s what I didn't expect:
-My Computer Makes Me Sick
Now that I am pregnant, I get the same panicky, icky feeling when I use a computer. Some days, I will open my computer, post a tweet, and then feel like death. On other days, I can read things on my computer, but as soon as I start to type I get nauseous. Hence my absence from the blogging world.
What the heck is this all about?!? I have never read anything about this in the baby books.
-I Can't Run
-Chocolate Is Nasty
-I Am Tir....Zzzzzz
Sorry I can’t stop yawning. I’m just really tired.
It appears that I may win the battle of Miss Nutralicious vs. The Computer. Hello Internet, I'm back!
For the past month, I have been handwriting blog posts in my fancy green notebook, and now that I am feeling more capable of facing my computer, I am going to try my hardest to get back to a regular blog posting schedule.
-My family’s reaction to me being pregnant
-My fear of babies
After that, I will continue to post the same type of blog posts that I have been posting since January when I started this whole blogging thing.
I miss publishing blog posts, and I am excited to get back into the swing of things.
Side note: I've been thinking a lot lately about becoming un-anonymous (Non-anonymous? Famous? What the heck is the opposite of anonymous?!). I feel like I am getting to know some of you on a more personal level, and it seems weird to me that I know what you look like and you don’t know what I look like.
More to come on the becoming un-anonymous business. Meanwhile, here are pictures of my husband and I when we were 3 years old so that you can get an idea of what our future awesome child will look like. (Yes, it appears that our child will have a lot of hair.)
