35 Weeks

** This post is nearly a week behind schedule. I apologize for that - but this week has been a trying time for our family. On Monday, my mother's eldest brother was brought into the hospital where I work in full cardiac arrest. Even though the doctors and nurses worked diligently on him -- he did not survive. Needless to say, my thoughts and actions have been devoted to things other than blogging.

What's Happening with Joycelen?

  • Joycelen now weighs about 5 pounds and 12 ounces (per our 3-D ultrasound) and is over 18 inches long.
  • Her kidneys are fully developed now, and her liver can process some waste products.

What's Happening with Mama?

  • Total weight gain/loss: 25 pounds
  • Maternity clothes? Yes.
  • Best moment this week: Being able to share 3-D images of Joycelen with our family and friends. The 2nd best thing was the shower that our church thru for us -- they did an outstanding job and gifted Joycelen with lots of things.
  • Food cravings: Butterscotch
  • Belly button in or out? Still staying in....although I think its days are numbered.
    Stretch Marks? Still a negative to this question.
  • What I miss: Being able to where real clothes - like jeans with a zipper. I am entering the stage where maternity clothes are comfy but I am tired of them.

What's Happening with Daddy?

  • Daddy has completed finished the State Patrol Office and will celebrate the grand opening next Monday. He is starting to gear up for blueberry season and all the work that comes with the season.
