I'm a seriously sucky blogger. I KNOW.

I want to be a blogger. I really do.
I just can't seem to get into it lately. I used to blog all.the.time. And now? I have stuff to blog about. I just... don't. Someone please tell me why. It's okay if your answer is "Because you're a just sucky blogger." I'll understand and love you for being honest with me.


For those of you not privileged enough to be my facebook friend, here's my belly growth since my last post at 16 weeks.

17 weeks

18 weeks

19 weeks

20 weeks

21 weeks

 22 weeks

23 weeks

Most efficient way to update on the pregnancy is probably the survey thing I was doing and have neglected for like 7 weeks. Oops.

How far along: 23 weeks 1 day
Total Weight Gain: Last appointment I believe I was up 5 lbs (counting what I gained back)
Stretchmarks: Possibly? Or worsening of the ones I have before. I can see some coming on the belly a bit though. I won't be spared.
Sleep: Not too bad, actually.
Best Moment This Week: When he kicked me tonight and I actually jumped because he kicked me so forcefully. He's definitely big and strong in there.
Cravings: Nothing specific. Just food. Lots of it.
Movement: Allllll the time. This child has not stopped kicking me in 3 weeks.
Gender: BOY!!
Labor Signs: Started getting Braxton Hicks a few weeks ago. Boy those are fun. Urgh.
Belly Button: Just now starting to stretch and look weird.
What I Miss: I'd say I miss wearing jeans, but that would be a lie. I miss guilt free caffeine though.
What I am Looking Forward to: My baby showers in May.
Milestones:  So many in the past few weeks!

So yeah, since I last posted we found out that we are having a BOY. I thought for awhile there that it would be a girl. Maybe was hoping a little bit as well. But then everyone starting saying they thought it was a girl and I changed my mind. My child would obviously be more complicated than that. And sure enough, it is a boy. I knew as soon as the ultrasound tech started to look after she found out that I wanted to know the sex. She says "The babies hand is down there so I can't see right this second" and I was like "Oh, well, that definitely means it's a boy." And sure enough. My son. Playing with himself already. Of course. :-)
We decided on a boy name a week or so before we found out the sex and decided to name him Garrett Mark. Here's a picture of the little guy.

 Most adorable fetus ever? I think so.

Other exciting news?
I bought a car!
Less exciting new?
It's pretty much the same thing as the car we already own. Except a different year and a different color. Boring, I know. But ya know what? I love it anyways because it means life will be a whole heck of a lot easier when this baby comes. (Except the whole finances thing. Urgh) Sharing a car would be really freaking difficult then and I'm so excited to have some independence! I haven't owned a car in almost 2 years, so I'm really happy to have my own wheels. 

Anyways, hopefully it won't be another 7 weeks before I post again. By then I'll be 30 weeks pregnant. WHAT.
