18 Weeks Pregnant-- finding out the gender tomorrow!

Yep I'm 18 Weeks pregnant already!  CRAZZZY!  It's really going by a lot faster now! 

We have our anatomy scan tomorrow.  It's my very first ultrasound as well so it'll be the first time getting to see my baby.  (Yes, I'm super jealous of those of you that get several ultrasounds by this point! lol.)  Anyway we should be able to tell if we're having a boy or a girl!  I can't wait!  I'm super excited and a wee bit nervous.  We go tomorrow (Tues. the 19th) at 2:00.  I will do a post on here after we've told our families!

Here's my little pregnancy update thingy...
How far along: 18 weeks 1 day
Size of Baby: Mango
Total Weight Gain: 5lbs
Maternity Clothes: Yep.  Pretty much everything.  I can wear a couple pre-preggo shirts and dresses but that's about it!
Gender: WE FIND OUT TOMORROW!  (hopefully- if baby cooperates! lol)
Movement: Some flutters and taps a couple times but not a whole lot.  Wondering if maybe I have an anterior placenta since lots of people my "farness" along have felt more movement.  I guess we will find out that tomorrow too!
Best thing this week:  Best thing this past week was getting our room rearranged to make room for the bassinet ;)
Sleep: Pretty good.  I've had a LOT of really vivid dreams lately.  Not bad, though some are a little strange.  But they make me wake up usually which in turn means I have to get up to go to the bathroom and have a sip of water.  So sleep is getting to be more interrupted.
What I miss: Mmm not a whole lot.  I have missed a couple times getting to have a glass of wine or a fruity alcoholic drink- which is funny because I didn't think I'd miss it at all, and when we were TTCing I only let myself drink it during my periods when I was SURE I wasn't preggo.  It's not a HUGE deal it just is something I kind of have missed that I didn't think I would.  It's wayyyy worth it though! <3
Cravings: Fruit (especially strawberries)
Symptoms: Backpain and hip pain especially when I'm doing a lot & on my feet lots.
What I’m looking forward to: DUH, my ultrasound tomorrow!!!

And now to catch up on posting vlogs.  I just recorded my 18 week video but I've not edited it or uploaded it yet so when I get that done I'll just add it to the bottom! :)

Our Vacation!

So we went to the Outer Banks earlier this month with alllll my inlaws (Brew's mom, dad, aunt, uncle, cousin, sister, brother in law, and nieces!)  It was a lot of fun!  We are going to go back next year-- this time just our little family of three! ;)

Here's a video of pics/video taken during our trip!
