I'm 18 weeks and sometimes the baby moves all day long and other days it doesn't move that much . Is this normal ? Plus I recently started getting heartburn and it seems like the nauseousness never went away... Anyone relate ?

At 18 weeks, yes, that is fairly normal still, movement will become more and more regular the farther along you get. If you get worried, go to your dr or the ER, but labor and delivery most likely won't take you, most require you to be 20 weeks before you can go up there. Heartburn is very common at this stage, and may stay until you deliver, and some women are unlucky and have morning sickness all 40 weeks. Again, if you are worried, go to your dr.

Oh ya. The movement thing is very normal. That baby is still pretty small so sometimes you may feel the movement and other times not.  It's usually easiest laying down and being still.  

And unfortunately a lot of women stay nauseous longer. :(  How are your meals? You might try 5-6 small meals/snacks a day instead of 3 big meals.

Your fine girl. And don't worry about the morning sickness. I had that the ENTIRE pregnancy except the last 2 weeks

Normal, baby actually sleeps. Some women are sick their whole pregnancy.
