37 Weeks

What's Happening with Joycelen?

  • Joycelen now weighs 7.7 pounds is over 19 inches long.
  • In other big news, she is now full-term - which means she is preparing for life outside the womb!

What's Happening with Mama?

  • Total weight gain/loss: 25.5 pounds
  • Maternity clothes? Yes.
  • Best moment this week: The snow storm that hit over the weekend. Although we only received a few inches that did not last very long - it made for a magical feeling.
  • Food cravings: Veggie subs and Southwest chicken salads
  • Belly button in or out? Still in.
  • Stretch Marks? None
  • What I miss: Hard to think of anything this week.

What's Happening with Daddy?

  • Daddy has had to endure quite a bit of teasing from Mama this week. On Thursday, he made the comment "If it snows this weekend, I'll eat my boot." It was quite tempting for Mama to serve it to him on a platter -- instead she let him eat Mexican. Daddy is also trying to find a way to drain the yard -- all the rain has the driveway looking like a pond. When he isn't doing that, he rubbing Mama's feet, back, and belly -- basically doing whatever he can to make sure she's comfortable thru the home stretch.
