29 Weeks

* This post is about a week behind. With all the activity surrounding Christmas, it never got posted.

What's Happening with Joycelen?

  • Joycelen now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel.
  • Her muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and her head is growing bigger to make room for her developing brain.

What's Happening with Mama?

  • Total weight gain/loss: 20 pounds
  • Maternity clothes? Yes
  • Best moment this week: Watching Joycelen kick for over half an hour - my tummy was rolling into very weird shapes.
  • Food cravings: Pecan Pie
  • Belly button in or out? In.
  • Stretch Marks? Still none.
  • What I miss: Being allowed to lie on my back while exercising. Now that the doctor does not want me to lie flat on my back - I am finding that there are numerous exercises I can

What's Happening with Daddy?

  • Daddy is still busy with the school he is building. He is also starting to gear up for the start of blueberry season - meeting with Papa and Uncle Jason to plan what work will get done each week.
