32 Weeks

What's Happening with Joycelen?
  • Joycelen now weighs 3.75 pounds and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in my uterus.
  • I am gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to her.
  • She now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair (or at least respectable peach fuzz). Her skin is becoming soft and smooth as she plumps up in preparation for birth.

What's Happening with Mama?

  • Total weight gain/loss: 24.5 pounds
  • Maternity clothes? Yes. I have had to pick up a few more maternity sweaters as we've had a cold snap recently.
  • Best moment this week: Knowing that we will hear Joycelen's heartbeat today at the doctor's.
  • Food cravings: Peanut Butter
  • Belly button in or out? In.
  • Stretch Marks? Thankfully still a negative.
  • What I miss: Being able to do ab-work. Our company is having a "Biggest Loser" contest and two of my co-workers have asked me to be their trainer. It is hard to explain ab exercises when you can not do them.

What's Happening with Daddy?

  • Daddy is in full home improvement mode. Over the weekend, he used the tractor to fix our very muddy dirt driveway. He managed to fill in all the holes and smooth things out. Daddy has a load of rock ordered to go down sometime this week. He also plans on hanging the chair molding in the nursery on Saturday. :-)
