Oh baby baby: 18 weeks, it's a...

How far along: 18 Weeks

Trimester: 2nd - and it's finally starting to feel like I'm actually in the second trimester!

Baby size: Bell pepper

Movement: I feel flutters! They're getting stronger and stronger every day!

Cravings: Anything salty, spicy, and not sweet.

Symptoms: Still exhausted, but the nausea seems to be lessoning. I am plagued by hip pain and charlie horses every once in a while, and if anyone has a good remedy for heartburn, I'd love to hear it!

Maternity clothes: There is nothing wrong with maternity clothes and I will proudly wear them. Baby has nowhere to go except out and my pants just don't fit anymore.

Best moment of the week: Our gender reveal photo shoot! Thank you, Mandi! You are amazing!

What I'm looking forward to: Sharing our wonderful news with everyone on what we're having (for those who aren't following along on Facebook) and our meeting with a potential midwife on Monday!

The following pictures are done by Mandi of Making Memories Photography. If you are ever in the Atlanta area and are searching for an amazing photographer, she is the best!
