29 weeks

29 weeks - 4.5.11

(FYI: Thursday I was actually 30 weeks…but wanted to get my 29 week post up anyway!)

How Far Along: 29 Weeks

Size of baby: Baby Bangert is the size of a butternut squash, about 2 1/2 pounds, and a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel.

Maternity Clothes: I wear maternity jeans, pant, and I’ve recently started wearing a few shirts I got from my sister. I’m still squeezing into a few regular things though!

Gender: It’s a girl!!! We’re still working on names…I sure hope we can get one picked out soon!

Movement: She is a busy little girl! i feel her all throughout the day. I love it though…there is a tiny little life inside me!

Sleep: Eh, it’s been ok! I’m not the best side sleeper and I wake up on my back quite a bit. Plus a few bathroom runs!

What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach, a bigger selection of clothes, and buying regular clothes (the maternity section needs to expand)!

Cravings: Pretty sure I don’t got 2-3 days without ice cream! That is pretty normal though! ;) I am quickly finding out the bigger she gets the less I eat…I get full SO fast!

Symptoms: Really can’t complain! Feeling well for the most part, just stiff/achy by the end of the the day.

Best Moment this week: Spending the weekend in Omaha with my family! (Don’t mind my tired face…we had just spent 6+ hrs shopping and then waited 1hr to get seated at the restaurant.March_2011_169

I realized I haven’t had a picture of my cute little nephew lately, he’s getting SO big! He’ll be 7 months in just a few days!March_2011_133_-_Copy

27 weeks

27 weeks - 3.23.11

How Far Along: 27 Weeks

Size of baby: Baby Bangert is the size of an eggplant!

Maternity Clothes: I wear maternity jeans and pants but everything else is regular.  Things are getting tighter though!

Gender: It’s a girl!!!

Movement: My Doctor told me I should feel her at least 10 times before 1pm…I don’t think that is a problem!! BIG NEWS: Kyle finally got to feel her kick on Saturday!! It was such a sweet moment, we were watching a movie and after he felt her kick he left his hand there the rest of the movie just waiting to feel her again!

Sleep: Not too bad, I get up a few times throughout the night to go to the bathroom. I guess it’s preparing me for a newborn!

What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach, a bigger selection of clothes, and being able to go up & down stairs without getting winded!

Cravings: I don't have specific cravings. I just like to eat! ;) I don’t think ice cream counts, I love that anytime!

Symptoms: Really can’t complain! Feeling well for the most part, just stiff/achy by the end of the the day.

Best Moment this week: Kyle feeling her kick and making progress on the nursery!

I had my glucose test yesterday and they said no news is good news. So my fingers are crossed, I haven’t heard from the Dr. yet, so I’m hoping that’s a good sign!

In case you missed it click here to check out the progress in the nursery!

Nursery Progress

Over spring break Kyle hung a few shelves in the nursery. I had a picture in my head of what I wanted to do with them, but needed to actually bring it to reality.

This is the view from the doorway: the crib is straight on & the shelves on the left. DSC09868

Here is another view. I used white gallery frames on the shelf we picked up at Ikea. Here are the details:

  • The frame on the far left has pink scrapbook paper with a white swirly design. Once we pick out her name I’m going to be a big initial of her first name.
  • The 2nd frame is something I designed & framed. (see next picture)
  • Then we have her ultrasound.
  • Lastly, I finished it off with some coordinating scrapbook paper I picked up at Hobby Lobby.
  • The 2 pink iron flowers below are hooks I also got at Hobby Lobby for $3/each.DSC09860

Here is a close up of what I made! I used the colors in her nursery (pink, blue, green, & brown), difference sizes, and jumbled the alphabet for something fun! I was so happy with how it turned out!DSC09861

Kyle also hung something I “stumbled” upon in our storage area in the basement. This is a scrapbook display frame my sister Mindi gave me years ago! It’s magnetic and also has some mini clothes pins. I thought this will be a great place to display pictures, her birth announcement, etc!DSC09865

After we got these things done, I just sat in the glider and enjoyed the room! *sigh* Just love it so far! I can’t wait for her to get here, the most important piece of this whole puzzle! I have another plan for the remaining 2 walls. One is dependent on what we pick for her name & the other is dependent on finding a friendly seamstress! ;) So we’ll save those for another day!

Wednesday was the last day of week 26 for me. Today (Saturday) I’m 27 weeks, 2 days…less than 100 days to go! I’m getting so anxious to meet my little girl!!

Big surprise friends, I’m behind! Today I am actually 26 weeks, 3 days. But I wanted to get this post up, for my reference! Kyle and I are on spring break the first half of this week. We have lots on our agenda…visiting daycares and a few meetings to make sure we have all our ducks in a row before baby gets here (aka insurance, lawyer, investments, etc!). Have a great week everyone!

Weekend Chicago Trip

Kyle and I made our 2nd annual trip to Chicago to see Mel & Steve (Kyle’s sister & her husband). We took off for Chicago after he got out of class Thursday night, which ended up meaning we had a 3am arrival time! I stayed up with Kyle about half the time, but boy being prego I just can’t last as late! Kyle did great though and got us to Chi-town safely!

We slept in Friday morning a bit and then headed about an hour north to Wisconsin to a HUGE outlet mall! But before our day of shopping we went to the Jelly Belly Factory!DSC09822DSC09824

The middle of the store was a huge sample station! Look closely and check out some of those flavors on the bottom…baby wipes, booger, barf, skunk spray…no thanks! ;)DSC09823

DSC09826

Not sure if this counts as vegetable serving! ;)DSC09825

We finally made it to the check out with a few Jelly Belly finds, only to find out they were hiding the good stuff up there! Check out the size of those peanut butter cups! Of course we HAD to get one!DSC09827

Next we were off to empty our wallets at the outlet mall! The place was HUGE! Sadly it was raining so we hit our favorite stores and called it an afternoon by 3pm.

So this was Kyle’s first time in Wisconsin, so he had to have a real Wisconsin experience! Cheese!! Mar’s Cheese Castle to be exact!DSC09838

It was literally a castle! And it just opened the day we were there! Great timing, huh!DSC09837

DSC09835

There were all kinds of things made out of cheese…DSC09828 DSC09829 DSC09830 DSC09831

Beer sausage & cheese anyone?DSC09833

Of course there were samples galore! Check out that giant wedge of cheese!!DSC09834

Chocolate cheese fudge anyone? It was actually VERY good. The said they just replaced the milk with cheese. DSC09832

No castle is complete with knights! :)DSC09836

After our cheese excursion we hit up Ikea! This is an old picture, it was raining cats & dogs when we got there! We picked up a few things for the nursery. Can’t wait to show you guys!!

When we got back to Mel & Steve’s place and knew just what we wanted! Our giant peanut butter cup! We cut it into 4th’s and each enjoyed a piece of delicious-ness!!DSC09839

Friday supper we knew just where we wanted to go….Giordanos!![DSC061423.jpg]

It was well worth the 30 minute wait for our pizza to cook!!DSC09842

DSC09841

Mmmm, look at all that cheesy goodness!!DSC09843

Saturday we spent our day shopping…the mall, Costco, Marshalls….you name it! :) Here are a few of my favorite finds!

Some new kicks!! Don’t ya love the sparkles!!DSC09852

And of course I couldn’t pass up a few things for Baby Bangert!

DSC09853 DSC09854

After our day of shopping we went out for supper with some of Mel & Steve’s friends at one of their favorite spots, Ron of Japan, a Japanese steak house. DSC09844

This was the kind of place where they cook right in front of you!DSC09845

Pretty impressive!DSC09847

We had a good time & of course, plenty of food!DSC09850

Sunday we slept in, packed up the car, and Kyle wanted one more stop before we left town…Portillos! Kyle got his hot dog & Italian beef and I stuck with their chocolate cake![DSC06116[1].jpg]

We said our goodbyes and made the trip home. Thanks for a wonderful weekend guys! Next time you’ll have a family of 3 visiting! :)
