due in five days

We'll be at 40 weeks this coming Saturday December 14th which is our baby's official due date. Not that I expect to have this baby right on her due date but we'd be more than happy to welcome her on time. I went into labour with Owen at 5am the day after his due date and was so pleased with the timing because he was 'officially due' on Friday the 13th which seemed even just a little unnerving for someone as logical & scientific-minded as myself. The funny thing is, this coming Friday also falls on the 13th, and our baby is due exactly four years and one month after Owen. But the OB has no plans of inducing me early since the baby is doing well and I'm reasonably comfortable. He said if it comes down to it and an induction is necessary we can expect a "Christmas baby". Now, myself, I'm born December 23rd, so I know all about being born before the holidays. I'm thinking I'd like this baby to be more on time than late. But as long as she arrives healthy and happy I don't think we could ask for any greater gift.

We had our official last date night before the baby to Nuno's work Christmas party this past Saturday. Because we were dressed up, Nuno snapped a 39 weeks photo after the party. We somehow never take the time to get photos when we are looking our best, I always regret it after the fact. I'm wearing a black party dress from RW & Co. that I've been wearing ever since the first trimester to weddings and events. It's not a maternity item but loose fitting so it's crazy comfortable and with the sheer draped fabric down the front it's so super-flattering for an expectant mom.
We came home from the office party with a prize of a Keurig Platinum. Not sure if anyone reading this has one of these machines. It wasn't high on my wish list until our Cuisinart Coffee Maker broke 2 weeks ago. Since then we've been using our single cup cone filter. But even after only a couple days I've been really enjoying this machine. I like the option of having the My K-cup reusable filter so I can continue to grind my favourite beans for my morning coffee.
