So 18 weeks. I’m basically writing this so far after I’ve passed 18 weeks but you know what… better late than never. So really, this week was the most exciting because we had our anatomy scan this week and were able to confirm the gender. I’m planning on posting all about it on a separate post because really… it deserves it. Since I really don’t have any more exciting news other than the gender…. here’s my weekly update:

Baby Bump Shot:
I’m feeling super pregnant. I take selfies/bump shots like every day now. More than I’d like to admit. Here is just one of them. I actually compared myself at 10 weeks to myself at 18 weeks. Look at me grow! I was wearing the same shirt so I thought it would make for a good comparison shot. What a difference 6 weeks makes huh??
