24 and Pregnant

I'm actually 26, but 24 is back people!!! and I cannot even express how excited I am. It probably doesn't seem blog worthy to most, but I just haven't been able to stop thinking about it, thus making it blog worthy...to me. It feels like a weight has been lifted; a hole has been filled. I am now busy every Monday night from now until May. This show I am just unable to record and watch later. 24, among other shows coming back (Lost, American Idol) is just what I need to get me through this "winter". At 14 weeks pregnant and super emotional, every other show on tv (and everything else) makes me tear up. Fortunately; torture, shooting, pain and terrorists don't exactly turn on the water works for me. Other than that, and for those who are interested, I have been feeling great and the ultrasounds show that everything looks good and healthy! I obviously don't know the gender yet, but in the ultrasound I think he looks like a boy.

I really didn't know how to do the whole "announce-that-you're-pregnant-on-your-blog" thing, but I really wanted to blog about 24, so I thought I'd just throw it in there. Please don't think I'm more excited about a tv show than I am about my own kid...they're pretty equal.

See some familiar faces? I LOVE CHLOE! And Tony too except for the fact that he's a terrorost now. I think I like the new girl, and glad to see that Bill Buchanan is back too.

East Coast Pratts said...

Congrats!!! And I too am a huge Chloe and Buchanan fan!

Lima Bean said...

I also don't watch 24, but loved the title of this post. Congrats! That's wonderful that you're feeling so good.

Lizzy said...

I've never watched 24 and why start now, ya know what I mean? But congrats the pregnancy! I can't wait see your preggers belly next month. You're gonna have one, right? A bigger belly I mean. Your belly pops sooner with your second, right? Am I making any sense here?

Chad and Jessica said...

YAh-hee!!! How exciting! I'm 14 weeks along too! And....I feel stupid being emotional....just cuz I wonder if I'm just being silly, or if it really is the hormones, so its nice to hear someone is in the same boat! I cried twice while I watched Sister Act 2!!! I mean....what???? It was just so wonderful when that guy sang the solo to "When Jesus washed my sins away" and then he hit that high note that surprised EVERYONE and knocked everyone's socks off! LOL. Also, 24, I LOVE when people are big fans of things....it doesn't matter what it is....I think everyone needs to be a big fan of at least 1 thing, and be totally CRAZY about it....it's just fun!

Brenley said...

Congrats! I am sure that this baby will be much easier! And i'm feeling the girl vibe. But two boys in a row would be fun!

C Crane said...

Congrats! Two kids families are awesome I think! I am so on board with your thoughts on 24. Jack is my crack! We sure miss you guys.

Ben & Diane said...

Congratulations!! I am glad you are feeling well. And I hate Kiefer Sutherland so that pretty much puts 24 out of the running for best shows for me. Sorry! But I am excited for American Idol!

Meg said...

LOL. I love that you speak "24" so we can understand the same language together. It's SO good. I was worried it would get lame but no....it just keeps on delivering.

But Tony Tony Tony....so sad.

And, oh...congratulations on being pregnant too.

Jenn said...

Wow, I didn't know you were pregnant. That is so great-congrats!! Before you know it you will look like me with three kids wagging behind :)

Kara said...

You know how I feel about 24, but I'm glad that being pregnant is at least equally as exciting as that crazy tv show you are obsessed with! I'm sorry I don't share in your obsessing, cause I feel a little left out sometimes when you girls get to talking about it and LOST!! Not enough to make me want to watch it and cause myself nightmares and even more anxiety!

Danielle said...

WOW! Yay! I'm so excited for you! Oh...Easton is sooo cute, I'm so excited to see the next one! Congrats! Unfortunately, I've never really watched 24...we don't get the channel with it on...BUT- I am anxiously awaiting LOST! I know you share the passion for that as well. Only about a week...YES!

Ilene said...

Boys are awesome. But girls are turning out to be great too.

So glad the cat is out of the bag! Fun, fun, fun!

Sean and Steph said...

Congrats Emily, that's fantastic!! I hope everything goes easily for you!

I've never watched 24 before, Sean and I starting in on this season. Hopefully it's good!

Dave and Teresa said...

CONGRATS!!! WE ARE SUPER EXCITED FOR YOU!! You better keep your blog updated during the progress!! :)

Jill said...

Sorry I can't comment on 24, I look forward to writing novels on your Lost posts though!

And congrats on that baby! I couldn't be happier for you. Yeah, it's a boy for sure. Boys are the best.

Anna said...

Congratulations on your upcoming bebe! I myself have vowed to never watch 24 because of how addicting it is. I don't think I could handle the suspense/violence. But enjoy, enjoy away! And keep on keepin' on- hope the pregnancy is happy and healthy.

Megan and Greg said...

Oh my gosh you're pregnant!!!! 2 KIDS!!!! Wow! That's so exciting!!! My baby hunger is growin' everyday. Every other week I'm like, "Greg, we could have a baby now, couldn't we?" ('cause the plan is to wait 'till we're back home again) And he's like, "No, Megan." But I keep seeming to want to just drop the plan- even though that would be a little wreckless right now. Email me your phone number- I have unlimited calling in the U.S- so I could call you. Thanks for remembering my bday. I laughed when you got the day wrong- but then you remembered! Thanks! Bye Em!

Miriam said...

Wow! What fantastic news! I think that is the funniest way I have ever seen anyone announce that they're pregnant on their blog. You're such a funny gal. Glad things are going well. So that puts your due date when? I have mom brain and can't work out the math. :)

Alifinale said...

Way to announce it! I so wanted to call you last night when Chloe came on. YAY! I loved last night.

Teresa, mom, Deitz, Aunt Dee Dee said...

24 first....ME TOO! I love that show. Glad that some of the oldies are back too. I just wish that every episode didn't end with a cliff hanger. Tony and Jack bad guys? I was reading all your other posts, what is wrong with your friends :-)? They are not 24 watchers, do they know what they are missing?

Congrats on the new baby. I am so happy for you guys!!!!!! You deserve an easy pregnancy. Hope all goes well and that you feel great everyday. Tell Steve, Way to go! jk

Ooooh, I am so "with it". Did you see that "jk" that I did? I'm learning how to shorten my words with letters. How smart am I.

Lindsay said...

What on earth!?!? That is fabulous!! I am so happy for you guys! What an amazing time this is... to finally get caught up on 24 again... ?!!? LOL you kill me. Ok yes TV is a essential part of all of our lives, but I have to be honest and say that the news of another little Easton(a) is very exciting. I love you cuz and congrats!

OREGON SOUTHWORTHS said...

Oh! I SO KNEW this post was coming soon (the pregnancy part, not 24)!! I could've bet money on it - not that I'm the gambling type. I don't know, something about the way you made comments on some of our mutual friends' blogs - the ones who just had babies or are expecting. Anyway, I just knew...
So, CONGRATULATIONS!!
That makes you due... late June/early July??

Eischens said...

Oh yeah!! Congrats Em! So excited for you and can't wait to hear what you are having!

Tara said...

What the hell? Tony's a terrorist? And what's with his porn stache in that picture? I am only on Season 4 so SHHHHH!! :)

I am SO happy you are pregnant with me! I love having someone to share in the misery - and the fun stuff too! love ya!

Carol and Bruce said...

It was good to see you announced your pregnancy, I've been telling everyone I see already. I'm so happy for me, oh I mean you guys. Easton will be an adorable big brother.

I may have to tape 24, I couldn't get to sleep last night it was so intense. I can't seem to stay away though and I liked the new girl.

Jenni said...

well as happy for you as I am that 24 is back on... I"M SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo happy about the pregnancy!!!! congratulationsssss! Keep me updated on that little baby! And I can't wait for AI tonight!

rose said...

no comment on the 24 stuff, but a BIG CONGRATS on #2!
you'll have your hands full! but it's totally worth it.
and you've GOT to have another boy. (although i'm sure your mom wants you to have a girl...)
and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE lat me know if & when you are having a shower. we've got to see eachother eventually!

Simon Family said...

You are HILARIOUS! Congratulations! I thought you were holding out until at least 28- but honestly 26 is where it's at. Can't wait to hear about the many adventures of the next 5 months- especially your opinions on LOST!

Aimee said...

"...there pretty equal"???? You're funny and I love it!

Aimee said...

I'm an idiot. They're!

Brynne, Aaron and Cade said...

FINALLY spilling it to the whole world! Seriously, totally stoked for you but I hardly think you can refer to what you're going through in Vegas as "winter". Come back to 30- degrees, frost/snow, rain, and wind and then you'll have WINTER!

Jill said...

congrats on the baby! and 24 and baby...equal. jk, jk, jk. :)

Lindsay Coudron said...

Yay!! Congrats!!! So exciting!!!

Brianne said...

Congrats!! We're gonna be prego "together". You're a little farther than I am, but just a couple weeks. So much fun!

Kara said...

RANDOM - congrats! And...I love Chloe and Tony, aren't you glad to know now that Tony is no such terrorist!

The Grahams said...

Congrats!! That is way exciting! Can't wait to find out what you're having!

Anonymous said...

YAY & Congrats!!! Love, Barbara & Jeff

Archambault Family said...

Congrats on baby #2. It seems like everyone is starting on #2. I must be behind the times. Two boys that would be fun, but I have to say a girl is a BLAST! You are a great mother. I am glad to hear you are doing well and the baby looks good!

Matt and Shannon said...

I love that 24 and your baby are in the same post :) And no, she doesn't have a belly at all. Lucky girl! Congratulations again!

Lani said...

I had to go over to Aimee's house last Monday night at 4:00 so that I could watch the 2 hour season opener before the 2 hour show on Monday. My VCR didn't record. (I'm going to have to do something about the old technology soon.) When I saw Choloe I texted Lara and Aim! I was so excited to see her. I like the new girl too. We thought that Tony would turn out to be a good guy. We think the new tech guy with the wife on the plane is the new terrorist leak, but he is too obvious so it will probably not be him.

The Webb Family said...

I'm so excited for you. Mom told me on xmas. I've been watching both your & your mom's blogs for an announcement and figured it was still a secret so YAY for you! I hope it's a girls so you can share scared feeling about having girls!! JK we are very excited. Troy & I have a WorldMark Condo here in St. George you are welcome too if we have enough notice & can get it, or you can stay at my house, we can take off for the w.end and go to Beaver. Just let me know!! Your mom is in Beaver for the week, I'm taking my boys up Thursday to see Grandma.

Kricket said...

Cannonball said...

I KNEW I LIKED YOU!!! I am the biggest fan of 24...actually I think my whole family could take anyone on in the trivia game!!!

I WANT YOU TO HAVE A GIRL!!! Come on you'll love it! She has you and Bella to set the standard :)

Good luck with everything!

Brandi Harty said...
