Little white lies.

 Being pregnant can really cause you to become a pretty darn good liar.

 I'm not talking about big lies.... I'm talking about those little white ones.

The ones that are really hard to keep up with and make you think on your toes.

I feel like at the beginning of my pregnancy I had a really hard time remembering who I told what to and what I actually said.

These are the actual conversations I held with others and myself in my early stages of pregnancy.
Please don't think I'm too crazy.
Blame the baby if you must.

"Oh, it was my New Years resolution to drink more water."
Yea, right, I have to force myself to drink this stuff all for the good of the baby.

Was the nausea from my fertility meds or because I ate something that did not agree with me?
What did I tell that person? Think Caroline, think.

How many times this week have I used the excuse that the dog ran out the front door? Is anyone at work catching on yet that I feel like death 24 hours a day and cannot drag myself out of bed in the mornings? I should start telling people I had to run a few errands instead, yea that sounds better for sure.

 "Sorry, I have a lunch date with my hubby" was a much more reasonable response than "Hell no I don't want Chinese food for lunch, what do you want me to do, throw up on the floor?" Hah. Really I had a lunch date with some saltines and a nap in my car at Target.

"Oh, no wine for me please, I gave that up for Lent" Yea, right.....I am so preggers and would love a glass of red wine. Thank God for us good Christians taking part in self-denial and moderation for Lent.

"Everything is great! I am just taking a little time away from the blog to focus on work and home"
 Blah, Blah, Blah.... What I meant to say is that, from the moment I get home at night, I find the couch and then proceed to not move for the rest of the evening before retiring to bed at precisely 8pm having not done a damn thing.

I am so happy to have this baby news out in the open and for the whole wide world to know all the craziness that is ensuing in this little pea head of mine.

Other mamas out there, please tell me you went through this...
even if it is just a little white lie.


thanks Annie and Natalie for the best Thursday link-up ever! 


  1. Hey the Lent thing is actually a perfect excuse! Now I just need to remember to time getting pregnant with Lent and I'll be good to go ;)

  2. I think it was great that your first trimester fell during Lent - I'd totally believe that one!!! I'm probably going to show so fast I'll have to tell people within the first 6 weeks lol! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  3. These are funny. Those 12 weeks are so hard when you can't tell anyone! I can remember at work telling my co workers I couldn't help them move patients in the bed because "I hurt my back" and my co worker got all serious one time and said really? Is it that bad? How did you do it? You might need to go to HR. I was like err I'll be ok. They had an idea though bc any time the X-ray machine came around I was out the door. That's usually sign #1 that someone is pregnant when you're a nurse.

  4. Hahaha this is so funny! And you have some good excuses there! Every time I say no to a glass of wine, I always get "the look". Now I ask for alcohol just so people don't assume that I am hiding something. I drink much more alcohol in social settings than I care to!

  5. so funny!! i have heard this from other women, too! you look great! the lent part was super funny... :)

  6. How perfect that the start of your pregnancy fell during lent! Having the news out in the open must seriously be the best!

  7. I hope it gets better! I didn't have as rough as a time and can't relate, but I do hope something lets up soon! You're in the second trimester, which was the best for me.

  8. We found out we were pregnant on New Year's Eve! So I had to go out and buy sparkling grapefruit and pour it in a champagne glass all night! Hope you start feeling better soon!

  9. When I was a few weeks in, I was headed to a restaurant with my in-laws. I called ahead when making a reservation and got the hostess, waitress and bartender in on it by explaining the situation and what I was wearing and what I would order. They were so excited to be in on it. When I ordered the cocktail, the waitress made such a big deal over it (wink wink, nudge nudge) that my MIL asked me if I knew her from somewhere when she walked away. It was a production, but enabled us to keep the secret a few weeks longer. I tipped them huge that night and a few weeks later when the news was out, they said they had no clue!


I love hearing from you!
