Update and Some Photos...sorry no belly shots yet!

As said in a previous post, July wasn't the best month of my life. I'm usually an extremely optimistic person, but for some reason pregnancy has made me a ball of negativism. Well folks, NO MORE! I've decided that I'm going to enjoy my pregnancy (whether I like it or not). No more complaining that I don't feel better, no more days spent whining that my intestines are going to shoot out of my mouth at any moment, no more crying and sobbing every time I have an exceptionally horrible vomit party in the bathroom (you know...wishing all of this would just go away).

News flash to me..."Honey, you're almost 5 months preggers and you're puking like you're only 2. Get over it and stop being a heaving ball of negativism that you'll eventually end up passing along to your unborn child if you're not careful." The truth is, I may just be sick for the entire 9 months, I might as well suck it up...right?

I've wanted to be a mom since the minute I held my first little Cabbage Patch Doll in my arms and felt so much love and concern for the little ball of plastic, yarn and stuffing. (I also remember Robin Campbell telling me little "Mary Lou" would run away if I kept dragging it around by its piggy tails) Really my dreams are coming true. I do, however, think it's funny how God blesses us with exactly what we've always wanted, but somehow we don't realize the cost of getting it. I think I'm going to love this baby so much more than if I hadn't had a rough go of pregnancy, just because of all we've been through together...the three of us: Me, Baby-G, and Robbie.

So - here you go...What you've all been waiting for: A few pictures detailing my
journey over the last couple of months...drum roll please!


This was the first picture Robbie could snap at me during our trip to the Emergency Room


Here's Picture #2...He told me he wouldn't stop taking pictures until I smiled...Who wants to smile when their kidney feels like someone's repeatedly stabbing it?


And here you have it folks...a smiling Em-Cat in the ER...it was the only way to stop him from snapping the photos.

I'm not sure why I'm putting these horrible shots of me onto the internet, but here you go...I told you I was puffy all over!

And here's one of the first photos of our little tyke...

Don't ever say I didn't give you a full body shot...




It looks like we've got ourselves a little thumb sucker...All my bad habits are going to come back to haunt me...I just know it! ;-)

So there you go...photos and updates. A belly-shot coming soon. Also - FYI - The G-Family Blog coming soon. It's going to be one of those blogs you're going to have to be invited to and have a blogger password for. Even though child predators won't know where I live if I have a blog that isn't password protected, just the mere thought of them being able to see my baby doesn't make me happy...so if you really, really, really want to see more photos, you're going to have to get a blogger password and be super cool cause I'm going to have to invite you to visit my super secret blog. Otherwise, enjoy my sucky writing and vague information.

Invite me!! :) Children are such a blessing, but the hardest thing EVER. I guess that's what makes it worth it. You're doing great!

Em-Cat said...

Evaly-girl...you are so totally invited!

Stephanie said...

I am inviting myself right now! :-) You are rad. You are such a happy, lively person! I always feel better after having been in your presence. Seriously I have not seen that negativism that you speak of. But congrats on your new goal to be positive. You can always complain to me if you feel like you need to!. :-)

Em-Cat said...

Um...Whatev Steph...I have total control and can invite who I want...but OF COURSE you're invited! I think not being negative is more for Robbie's sake than for anyone else, but thanks for the compliments! You're a jem and I think you're totally RAD too!

I've read all your recent posts, but I'm going to comment on all of them here...

I HATE pregnancy. I stink at it. All those cute girls who look like they swallowed a perfectlty round WNBA sized basketball at 9 months along can go jump in a lake. I looked like I swallowed a basketball team with all three.

But the kids that come with pregnancy? They're worth it. I promise. Most days. :)

I think you look pretty dang fabulous for being in a hospital gown. And your thumb sucking Baby-G? Well, if he/she isn't already cute as a button!!!

Cecily R said...

Oh, and invite me!! Mee Meee Meeeee!

Okay, now don't throw up, but I loved being pregnant! I wasn't one of those cute little girls I gained a million pounds, but I enjoyed feeling that life inside of me.

Also do you know the sex? Do tell if you do!

Can I come to your blog?

Emily, Remember me? This is what I found when I did a google search on you, because I wanted to figure out how to get in touch with you, just wondering what has been going on with you. (Isn't it scary what you learn on the internet) And now I know! Congratulations!! I am very excited for you, and I totally understand every word you are saying. I always hated being pregnant. I would love to be invited to your new blog as well.
Love, Shari
