21 Weeks

What's Happening with Joycelen?

  • She weighs about 3/4 of a pound and is rougly 10.5 inches long.
  • Her flutters are starting to turn into distinct punches and kicks.
  • Our baby girl now has her eyebrows (hope they are like Mama's, not Daddy's) and eyelids.

What's Happening with Mama?

  • Total weight gain/loss: 15pounds
  • Maternity clothes? Almost exclusively.
  • Best moment this week: Feeling what I think was Joycelen's first real kick.
  • Food cravings: Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal, Omlets, Greek Yogurt
  • Belly button in or out? In.
  • Stretch Marks? None so far
  • What I miss: Sleeping thru an entire night. I am either awake because my position is uncomfortable or because I need to answer nature's call.
  • What I am looking forward to: Halloween Party on Saturday Night

What's Happening with Daddy?

  • Daddy's bad tooth had him down for several days - he mostly slept on the couch as he waited for pain medication to work.
  • On Tuesday, Mama took Daddy to the dentist for part one of his root canal. The dentist had to drill a hole to let all the infection drain out of the tooth. This made Daddy very sick.
  • But by Wednesday when the dentist put on the temporary cap, Daddy was feeling 100% better.

Keep slathering on the cocoa butter and lotion to avoid the stretch marks. But if they come, they come. It's not the end of the world.

What an exciting time! I have 4 spawns - and I'm done now. It's bitter sweet. I so want to hold a newborn again.

Enjoy the beautiful time. It's great the you're blogging it. Memories galore.
