38 weeks

38 weeks, 3 days 2.24.13

How Far Along: 38 weeks, 3 days {2.24.13}

Size of baby: Baby Bangert #2 is the size of a pumpkin

Heartbeat: 160bpm at 38 week appointment

Maternity Clothes: Mainly all maternity! I’ve been trying to layer with some of my regular cardigans & sweaters.

Gender Predictions: It’s a boy!

Movement: He is a busy boy! Sometimes in the mornings my tummy looks a little deformed because of all his movement. I just don’t see how he has room to move so much!

Sleep: I’ve been sleeping pretty well these days, usually only 1 bathroom break per night.

What I miss: When everything in my closet used to fit me and sleeping on my back.

Cravings: Mexican! I have yet to give into that craving too…I’m sure that will change in the next few days!

Symptoms: Some back pain & slightly swollen feet at the of the day.

Best Moment this week: We had snow day at home on Friday and got lots done around the house & in Baby Boy’s nursery. I think I finally feel comfortable saying I’m ready if this boy decides to make his arrival!

We had our 38 week appointment with Dr Olson on Tuesday. Based on the ultrasound I had last week she is estimating Baby Boy to be about 8 1/2 lbs! The ultra sound said he was 7lbs 8oz and I was measuring 2 weeks ahead. I was dilated to 2cm and Dr said he is very low (I could have told her that!). We’ll see what she has to say at my 39 week appointment next week.

Someone insisted on getting their picture taken too…by herself! Such an independent little girl!IMG_4322

Play Date

My good friend, Sara, and her 3 girls (Emma (4), Grace (2), & Josie (7 months)) came down one Friday evening. Sara’s cousin watched her girls while Sara & I went to do some pampering! Sara had a great idea, instead of exchanging Christmas gifts we decided to have a girls night! And it worked out perfect considering reaching my toes these days is a little more difficult than normal! ha!

After our pampering we picked up a pizza and headed back to our house so the girls could have some play time! I’m sure you can tell by the pictures, but they had a great time!IMG_4241

We headed down to the basement after supper. Kyle & the 3 older girls had a good ole time in our “ball pit”!


Kyle would shake the pool like an “earth quake” and the girls would just laugh & laugh!


To the girls disfavor the night had to come to an end. Sara & her girls live about an hour away and it was much past everyone’s bed time!

We had to try to get a picture all of them first though…but trying to get 4 girls 4 & under to look at the camera & smile is next to impossible!IMG_4269


We had an fun time with our friends! Come back & play anytime!

Valentine’s Day

Adelyn had a party at her daycare for Valentine’s Day! Of course she had to be dressed occasion in a cute SheSheMade shirt and some red skinny’s! I sure do love dressing up my little girl! (note: this was early in the AM before daycare…I don’t think she was quite awake yet)


She had to bring 18 Valentine’s to share with her friends at daycare. Mommy went straight to Pinterest and found this super cute printable here.


Adelyn LOVES marshmallows (like we have to avoid that section at the grocery store!) and graham crackers, so this Valentine worked out perfect!


And we can’t forget all her new, wonderful teachers! We have been nothing short of pleased with our experience at her new daycare (she started after the 1st of the year). We wanted to show our appreciation for her teachers who have been so kind & welcoming to us!


I didn’t get a picture of it, but Adelyn came home with a decorated bag filled with Valentines from all her friends!

Kyle & I kept things low key this year, we said no gifts! I did get him a card and he broke the rules and sent me a flowering plant for my office from him & Adelyn! Hope everyone had a “love filled” holiday!
