38 weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 38 weeks
Size of baby: 19.6 inches and about 6.11 pounds
Gender: A GIRL!!! Preslee Bell Turner
Maternity Clothes: Yes
Weight gain: 21 pounds
Movement: She is still rolling around and I am trying to treasure all those movements because I know they are about to be over!
Sleep: I am barely getting any sleep now. Peeing at least every 2 hours and just can't get comfy! I am looking very tired! I guess I am just getting used to my new reality! :)
Symptoms: Uncomfortable! Cramping, Lots of painless but stronger contractions... I would say at least twice an hour if not more. Low back just feels weak and sore! As of Friday, I was 2cm and 90% effaced.
Cravings: I am just hungry all the time! Loving Sonic again, thanks to Prilosec helping with reflux!
Best moment this week: Matt's mom and aunt came up this past weekend and helped me decorate for Christmas then cleaned my house from top to bottom! I can never say thank you enough for all they helped me do! I am so excited to have Christmas decorations up before she comes!! I am so grateful that I have such a wonderful in-law family that loves us so much!

You can come any time now baby girl! So many people are excited to meet you and are praying for your safe delivery! We are all anxiously awaiting your arrival and can't wait to fall in love with you! Love, Mommy

Julee, I am Susy's(New York from Magnolia, Arkansas) mom. I have been following your blog from her blog. I am so happy for you. I know Preslee is going to be a blessing to you and your entire family. Enjoy every precious moment - they grow up so fast. I can't wait to meet Preslee through your blog!

Julee, I have never commented on your blog, but have been reading your weekly posts throughout your pregnancy. My due date was November 30th, but I had my little girl, Lillie 6 weeks early on October 19th! I had fun reading your posts since we were due about the same time. I pray you have a swift and safe labor and delivery and a happy and healthy baby girl! Good luck to you :)

You look great Julee... I am so excited/happy for you! I can't wait to see Preslee..she is going to be so beautiful!! I remember those last days of pregnancy. They are tough but they go fast. I remember my first shower after giving birth. I was so excited I could bend all the way over and dry my feet, then I realized I would never feel her move in me again and it made me so, so sad! But the joy of feeling your baby in your arms erases all that!!

Nancy said...

You still look so pretty!! You will be able to breathe good again the minute she comes out! And bending over is wonderful once you don't have a baby in your tummy! So very happy for you!! Praying for a safe & easy delivery for you!

I follow Kelly's Korner blog and that is how I stumbled across your blog.
I am just a week ahead of you with my due date (November 27th, 2011)
It is so uncomfortable trying to sleep now as well! I find lying on my left side with a pillow is the best for me. I felt my baby drop this last week which has greatly helped with my breathing, I have been carrying very high and she was putting alot of pressure on my diaphram.
My last check up was this past Friday and I have only dialated 1 cm and my cervix is still very "thick" as the doctor described. I'm am jealous you are already 90% effaced! I bet you will have the baby very soon!
BTW I also am having a girl. We are naming her Elizabeth Grace. I'm so anxious to see her and hold her and can't wait to see who she looks like more, me or her daddy.
Goodluck to you guys, hoping everything goes smooth with you thru your labor & delivery. May God bless you.
