22 Weeks

My niece London (2.5) decided that she wanted to in the picture with "Joycelen".

What's Happening with Joycelen?
  • Joycelen is 11 inches and almost 1 pound, and starting to look like a miniature newborn.
  • Her eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and she's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath his gums.
  • Her eyes have formed, but the irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment.

What's Happening with Mama?

  • Total weight gain/loss: 15 pounds
  • Maternity clothes? Almost exclusively.
    Best moment this week: Hearing Joycelen's heartbeat at the doctor's office and being able to record it for Daddy to listen to.
  • Food cravings: Oatmeal with peanut butter, Granny Smith Apples
  • Belly button in or out? In.
  • Stretch Marks? Nope
  • What I miss: Being able to wear my high heeled boots. I wore a pair on Friday night and my feet were swollen for hours afterwards. Looks like I'll be sticking to low heels and flats from now on.
  • What I am looking forward to: Trip to Atlanta this weekend and then to Lowe's to pick out paint colors for the nursery.

What's Happening with Daddy?

  • Daddy has had to close at his office this week, which means he has been working later than usual. However, he still makes time to cuddle with Mama and talk to Joycelen.

I have had to get rid of the boots too. It stinks especially since it is getting colder and I hate hose and things like that.

Your niece is such a cutie. I'll bet she will be fantastic as Jocelen is growing up.

So glad to hear that things are going well halfway through!
