17 weeks

(The shadow is back but I didn't like the other pic that didn't have it. We will do better next week!)

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 17 weeks
Size of baby: 5 inches long and 5 ounces
Maternity Clothes: I am wearing maternity shorts and capris because my pants dont button and the bella band moves around too much!
Gender: A GIRL!!! Preslee Bell Turner
Movement: I feel flutters when I am laying flat in bed late at night. I am ready to feel her more!
Sleep: Sleep is still ok! I wake up a few times at night to pee but can go right back to sleep. Love sleeping on my left side and a little on my back!
Symptoms: I had pretty good week but at night my body just really aches! I had a few headaches and a few days of heartburn but nothing too bad.
What I miss: My energy!
Cravings: Anything salty & cheesy! Still loving Sonic hot dogs or basically anything from Sonic!
Best Moment this week: Finding out about our sweet girl!! We are so attached to her already!
What I am looking forward to: Starting to feel Preslee move more! I can't wait to have that reminder that she is in there growing and moving around! Also I am ready to get the nursery stuff picked out! It is overwhelming me! I will be happy when its all ordered and then I can just start organizing her stuff!

BTW, your husband hosted the FCA banquet a bit ago (my husband is bentonville basketball coach) and he did such a great job - awesome night!

You look great! Congratulations on your baby girl. I came across your blog a few weeks ago and I've loved reading about your pregnancy! I wanted to give you a little suggestion about the shadow, I'm a photographer. It might help if you stand away from the wall a bit. Usually if you are too close and using a flash, it does tend to make a shadow. Just a little advice!

Okay, so you don't know me from Adam, (I blog surfed over from a friend's blog) but here's how to get rid of the shadow, just stand further from the wall when you take a flash picture. The further you are from the wall, the less likely you will have a shadow from the flash.

Hope that helps! And congratulations on your upcoming arrival!:)

It's so special that you have this blog to document all of this. I wish so badly that blogging was around when I was pregnant. I can't remember much of it and it does make me sad.
Anyway, love, love, love the name Preslee, it's so cute! I am soooo happy for you!!!

Found you through the Francis Family blog... Congratulations! Double check with your doctor, but I was able to take tylenol pm to help me sleep at night, which was GREAT as I got further along.

Are you due December 6th?

I recently found your blog, and am so excited I did! I am expecting my first on December 6th, and had a lot of fertility issues as well. It was such a relief and blessing to find out that I was pregnant!

We don't know the sex yet, and I'm jealous you do! I can't wait until we find out.

Thank you for blogging all that you do. It makes me feel like I'm normal... :D
