RafikiKenya @emugendi Woman's intuition ??? Yet, I guessed it first #juliefull Was I born in the wrong body maybe?

RafikiKenya @Shiko_Msa Do you really think it is just the dress? #juliefull

RafikiKenya @bobui Depending on the positions they use, I think it could work #JULIEnaLOUIS But how would the baby look really?
9:28 PM Aug 2nd from web in reply to bobui

RafikiKenya @bobui LOL Yes it could be Louis Otieno ! But what a baby would that give? No, let me not think about it.
9:17 PM Aug 2nd from web in reply to bobui

RafikiKenya @bobui @willpress So at least we are 3 already who can agree that Julie is pregnant. Now, next question: who did it? Her husband? Again?
9:10 PM Aug 2nd from web in reply to bobui

RafikiKenya @bobui According to my sixth sense, she is pregnant #juliegichuru

RafikiKenya I couldn't hear Julie, but she looks very pregnant

The early announcement of Julie's pregnancy on Twitter reminded me of some nice infographics from Samuel Degremont on information flows before the Twitter era and after Twitter. I am copying these graphics below.

Before Twitter


After Twitter


As you can see from the graphs, Twitter has changed the flow of information and news quite drastically. What do you think?

Apart from following @RafikiKenya on Twitter and the usual baby bump, here are some other signs to look out for if you want to know whether a woman is pregnant or not:
  • Sudden emotion swings (although women also tend to have these even when they are not pregnant, so maybe they just occur more frequently).
  • Fatigue.
  • Weight gain.
  • Sleeping problems.
  • Morning sickness; also certain smells make her feel sick.
  • Drinking less alcohol or no alcohol at all.
  • Urinating more frequently.
  • Some women get a faint dark or red line from their belly button down.
  • Sore breasts, bigger areola as well as tender nipples which may be darker in color than usual.
Any others I am forgetting?
Oh, and please don't ask me which of these signs showed me that Julie is pregnant.

does she read this blog? I hope not! I was a doubting Thomas and you were right.

Once upon a time you read a post at mine on strip joints and asked(to my shock and horror) what a strip joint is. I trust you finally got to know.
