26 Weeks and a Meme

Well today is 26 weeks and there is only 14 more to go! Not much to really update besides I'm so close to the 3rd trimester I can taste it and Lillian has become quite active. Only taking half hour naps here and there. Besides everything else I've talked about this week, not much going on. So here's my pics from this morning. . .

Now for a Meme that Beautiful Mess tagged me for a few days ago. This one really took some thought!

The honorees of this award are to:
A) List 10 honest things about yourself - and make it interesting, even if you have to dig deep!
B) Pass the award on to 7 bloggers that you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap.

1 ~ I was up at 3 this morning thinking about this Meme. Sad I know, but it's really hard to think of 10 things I want to share with the internet world with the worry that some day one of my real life friends will find this and look at me like I'm crazy.

2 ~ I'm scared to death of being a mother to a teenage daughter! I know I can handle a baby, but I'm so afraid I'm going to turn her into a little princess that acts like those kids you see on Nanny 911! Not to mention I know my husband is not the best with discipline.

3 ~ Some times I feel bad because I feel closer to my MIL than I do my mother. This is hard for me because growing up my mother was a mother and a best friend all in one. I've always been close with her, but she's changed since she left her ex-husband (which I encouraged her to do) and has become really selfish. She once said to my sister and I "It's not my fault your fathers treated me like crap. I'm living life for me now!" I understand she needs to make herself happy, but there is a difference between that and being a selfish bitch. (No she's not a selfish bitch all the time, but basically if something doesn't suit her needs she doesn't do it)

4 ~ My sister and I have two different fathers and we raised in two totally different ways, even though it was our mother who raised us! We are actually 7 years apart and we both hate it. We get along great now though and are working on getting closer again. She was just entering high school when I went off to college and then she graduated just a few years after I came home from college so now she's gone. But she's so happy she should be home in time for Lillian's arrival!

5 ~ I just edited this post because all the numbers were bunched together and I realized I totally missed number 5!!! I swear my daughter is eating my brain!

6 ~ I don't think B and I would have ever been friends in high school or even gotten married if it hadn't been for my mother's divorce from her ex-husband (my sister's dad). When they were going through their divorce my mom and sister moved into a two bedroom condo. B started staying on the couch there a few weeks before I came home from college for summer break and there wasn't room for us so we had to get an apartment. I think having the responsibility of bills in my name made it harder for me to give up in the rough times.

7 ~ I sucked my thumb until I was in the 5th grade! And the even funnier part is that I didn't even start until I was 3! My mom tried everything. The hot pepper sauce stuff and even a guard the dentist put in the top of my mouth, yeah that didn't work either. But they had to take a mold of my teeth to fit it up and I puked all over my aunt when she did it.

8 ~ I've suffered from depression for most of my life, but I now refuse to take medication for it as last time I was on medication was the only time I ever thought of killing myself. It's been 4 years now and thankfully my husband is wonderful at recognizing when it's starting and helps me cope so it doesn't get soo bad. I will be going on meds after Lillian is born to ward of PPD, but that's only for my daughter's sake!

9 ~ I still sleep with the stuffed animal I've had since I was a year old! Yes I know kinda strange. Yes I took it to college with me and yes I literally cuddle with it still. B even makes sure I have him when I go to bed. I honestly don't know if I'll ever grow out of it, but B thinks it's cute.

10 ~ Besides my husband I have a girlfriend, and we've been together for 7 years now! Ok, so not a girlfriend in the sense that we're lesbians. Our freshman year in college we became best friends and she had just started dating this guy at school. Well we were talking about something and one of said we were girlfriends. His eyes got huge cause we did share a room. So from then on we called each other our girlfriends. It was great when we'd go to bars and some creepy guy would hit on us cause we'd just say I don't think my girlfriend would like me talking to you. Worked like a charm. And to this day we still refer to each other as girlfriends and when she lived with us even B would say he's the luckiest man on earth having me and my girlfriend, but he just wished we'd let him watch.

OK, so I hope that wasn't too boring for you! I'm not into tagging others so if you want to do it feel free!


  1. Yay for 26 weeks!! That's so awesome!

  2. Good job on the meme! It was a tough one. I have a girlfriend, too! My husband says the exact same thing about us. Great belly pictures. You're lookin good! Oh I wanted to say that raising a teenage daughter can be scary, but it isn't as bad once you get there. My daughter is 11 and she's had a few "drama queen" moments, but on the whole, she's amazing. You'll do FINE!

  3. Its funny to hear how active she is getting. I wonder what sort of baby you are going to come home with! Sounds like she could be quite the little wiggler, fun!
