11 Weeks Pregnant: Did You Facebook Your Pregnancy?


This was a busy week for work and less eventful when it comes to baby E.

We are nearing the 3 month mark when most people feel comfortable making their pregnancy public knowledge due to the miscarriage risk decreases.  A lot of our closest friends and family already know, but we still have a long list to tell. Soon I won’t be able to hide it, so we better get on the phone and start sharing our good news!


I can’t believe it’s already been almost 3 months, it seems like just yesterday we found out. What I find most entertaining is one of the first questions we get when we tell friends is “When are you going to put it on FB”, as if Facebook makes it official. Let me clarify, in our generation it’s not officially public knowledge until it’s Facebook official.

I have been on the fence about putting our happy news on Facebook for a few reasons: 1. I’m ‘friends’ with a lot of people on Facebook, but many who I haven’t kept in touch with for 10 years. 2. It seems so public for our private event, I have enjoyed having it our little secret and it will feel weird sharing it with such a public forum 3. It’s Facebook, If I keep in touch with you and I see you, you will know I’m pregnant I don’t feel like I have to put it on a social media site to make it official…

Despite all the reasons that I feel uneasy about posting our news to Facebook, I also feel like it is nice to let people know what’s going on. Our friends want to celebrate with us online and follow our progress and hear our news. So, who knows what will happen. I do know that I still have a list of people who need to hear our news directly from me and J first, and once everyone is crossed off… you might see something pop up on Facebook… maybe… 🙂

Size of Baby E:  Lime

Best moment of the week: Getting to visit a beautiful new mama in the hospital! My good friend Krista had an adorable baby girl named Kerigan and I was so happy to be able to make it to the hospital to hold the just hours old babe! I can’t wait to watch her grow up!

Epiphany of the week: I’m not going to be able to hide this pregnancy much longer. I’m not showing yet, but who knows how much longer that will last. My best friend was showing around 14 weeks, so 3 weeks from now. This baby is going to be making an appearance sooner than later 🙂

Obsessions/Cravings? Anything NOT sweet. I am craving anything savory and avoiding most sweets (which is also very much not like me!)

What I’m most looking forward to this week: Our babymoon. I know I should be planning the nursery and picking out the cutest diaper bag, but my mind keeps wandering to where are we going to spend our babymoon. More on that decision process in next weeks post!

What I miss the most: Training. I miss working with people to achieve their goals and seeing them accomplished and lives changed. My first baby wearing workout class filled up in less than 24 hours and we have a second class scheduled that is half full! Hopefully I can start getting connected with the new moms and soon to be moms in Indianapolis so I can start doing what I love soon!

Symptoms: Pretty easy week. I am definitely starting to get my appetite back and a little bit of my energy (not in desperate need of an afternoon nap daily). My acne is acting up more this week (not fun) .

  1. We are just about to start the third trimester so we went public this week. I had mixed feelings about Facebook because we struggled to conceive and I know how hard it was for me to read others’ announcements. Still, we went ahead and did it (and tried to be clear that this was not an easy journey for us). I’m do glad we did! There are people I’ve lost contact with who stopped by my page to congratulate me. It really feels like the whole world is celebrating with us! Good luck to you, whatever you decide to do!
