How far along: 18 weeks, 3 days.
Baby size: The size of a bell pepper (about 5 1/2 inches)
Must have items: My growing belly has finally started itching so I’ve been all about my cocoa butter lotion every morning and night.
Sleep: Still dealing with RLS most nights but I’m sleeping well overall.
Cravings: Not really craving anything new. Mexican food is always good, but I’ve been more into just the guacamole/chips, beans and rice than I have my usual tacos lately.
Baby movement: I felt the baby kick for the first time Tuesday night! It was the best.
Gender: She’s a girl!
Favorite moment: My favorite moment was definitely feeling the baby kick. I thought I felt it so I put my hand on my belly and waited.. she kicked again! I wasn't exactly sure if I felt it on my hand or just from inside but I had Derek put his hand on my belly just in case and then he felt it too. It was a sweet moment. We called Rowan into our room to try to feel it but she got too impatient after a couple of minutes and went back to her room to watch her movie lol. I have felt the baby moving and kicking every day since then. :)
Least favorite moment: My least favorite moment was feeling lightheaded and “the boat” feeling again on Sunday. The combo made me feel like I was floating around like a ghost all afternoon, and not in a fun Halloween way.
