30 Weeks

What's Happening with Joycelen?

  • Joycelen is about 15.7 inches long now, and she weighs almost 3 pounds.
  • A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds her, but that volume will decrease as she gets bigger.
  • Her eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen;

What's Happening with Mama?

  • Total weight gain/loss: 21 pounds
  • Maternity clothes? Yes
  • Best moment this week: Hearing her heartbeat at the doctor's appointment. She kept kicking the doppler.
  • Food cravings: Pecan Pie
  • Belly button in or out? In.
  • Stretch Marks? Still none.
  • What I miss: Being able to do things without someone saying "Should you be doing that?" Just this week I have had 4 people stop me at the gym to tell me I shouldn't be working out...

What's Happening with Daddy?

  • This is Daddy's week to open the office -- so he is extremely tired. Getting up at 4:30 is not much fun, Mama keeps telling him that it is practice for Joycelen's arrival.
