19 Weeks

What's Happening with Joycelen?
  • Joycelen now weighs around 8.5 ounces and measures around 6 inches head to bottom.
  • Her arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of her body now.
  • Her kidneys continue to make urine and the hair on her scalp is sprouting.
  • Her brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch.

What's Happening with Mama?

  • Total weight gain/loss: 13 pounds
  • Maternity clothes? Mama is wearing lots of maternity dresses - that are comfortable and stylish.
  • Best moment this week: Finding out that our Peanut is our Joycelen.
  • Food cravings: English Muffins with Peanut butter and peach yogurt.
  • Belly button in or out? In.
  • What I miss: Being able to lie flat on my back. The position is just not as comfortable as it used to be.
  • What I am looking forward to: A weekend trip to Atlanta with M for Georgia Tech's Homecoming. We are planning on buying Joycelen her first Yellow Jackets outfit!

What's Happening with Daddy?

  • The school that Daddy is building is pouring concrete this week which means he has been up and out the door at 4:15 every single morning.
  • Daddy likes talking to Joycelen at night, telling her silly jokes, and telling her how much he loves her.
    Daddy has become a pro at rubbing Mama's back/feet/legs or anywhere else she seems to get cramps these days......he takes good care of Mama.

Aaaah, how did I miss the post where you announced you were having a girl? I must have missed that in my feed!

Joycelen is such a beautiful name - I love it.

Hope your husband is feeling better after his root canal. That does NOT sound fun.
