36 weeks

Whoa! That is big ole' belly! And a very tired looking momma! :)

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 36 weeks
Size of baby: 18.6 inches and about 5.13 pounds
Gender: A GIRL!!! Preslee Bell Turner
Maternity Clothes: Yes everything is maternity except Matt's large tshirts!
Weight gain: 19 pounds
Movement: She still has a few active times of the day but I can tell this week that she has really started to slow down.
Sleep: As you can see from my tired eyes in the pic, sleep is not so good anymore! I can't sleep any longer than 2 hours, then I am up to pee!
Symptoms: Fatigue is here to stay! Having some strong but painless contractions, pains in my back, ribs and hips and many twinges, aches & pressure as I feel her getting lower!
Cravings: I am missing my sweets but this week I got some Twizzlers and finished off the bag tonight! :)
Best moment this week: Spending the past weekend with Matt! I know our time as just the two of us is almost gone so I really cherished the 2 full days together!

25 days until due date--- 4 days from TODAY I will be full term! Praise the Lord!

It's rough now, toward the end it's almost miserable but the light at the end of your tunnel is that sweet baby girl! It's so wonderful words can't even describe. And yes savor those moments with your husband. And savor those moments to yourself, they will be the last for a while!! I'm so excited to meet sweet Presley!

You look great! Pregnancy definitely agrees with you. Hang in there with the lack of sleep. I always remember the last month feeling so long! Can't wait to see pictures of sweet Preslee once she gets here. I know she will be precious. :)

I can't believe you are already 36 weeks. I actually had my son at 36 weeks & my daughter at 34 weeks! Hang in there momma, not much longer & Miss Preslee will be here. Can't wait to meet her :)

You think you look tired, but I think you look so cute! By the way, what video camera and baby monitor did you decide on?

You look beautiful Julee! Jillian slowed down a few days before she came, they say the babies try to rest up before the big day. She might be here sooner than you think!!!!

You look great! Enjoy these last days as much as you can. You will be surprised how much you miss being pregnant. That is a special time that only you get to experience!

You're almost there! I am 37 weeks tomorrow and I can relate to lack of sleep and being tired. This is my 3rd pregnancy and its been alot tougher than the last 2. Its so worth it though. I wish you lots of luck in your delivery. You will love being a mom. Best thing in the world!
