Dr Appt and a Christmas Update

Today I had my 34/35 week doctor appointment. I would be going weekly but my doctor is on vacation so my next appt is 12-22 and then again on 1-5. I was hoping to move my induction date but after talking to my doctor we will leave it as is. He feels confident that I won't have Brayden on the 12th but rather the 13th so he would not be born on my FIL's birthday. Oh and I asked him if he thought there was any chance I would naturally go early and he said he doubted it. I'm still holding out hope that he might be ready to come early!

When I walked in my nurse, M, said "Wow! You have dropped!" I told her that Chris had said the same thing and now when I go to sit I have to lift Brayden up! When Dr. S walked in he said "Wow!" and I cut him off and said "I've dropped" and he said "Yes, but I was going to say you are showing!" I called him a suckup (he has a great sense of humor) and told him I've been showing for weeks now. He insisted that I've been very small the whole time...haha. I think he was just being nice!
Anyway, Brayden was moving around the whole time and begging me for a Starbucks...I told him no, since I had one last night...and because it was 27 degrees outside and I didn't feel like sitting in line and rolling down my window.

Now on to Christmas...

Chris brought down about 1/4 of my decorations and put them up. We have our manger out, and our mantle is decorated (except I can't find my stocking holders...) and the tree is downstairs but has yet to come out of the box. Our wreath is now on our door which makes me very happy. Once everything is done I'll take and post pictures. We'll be celebrating Christmas with Chris' dad, stepmom, half brother and step sister next weekend (the 20th I think) so I need to work on the menu. I'm tired just thinking about it!

I'm also working on a list of meals to make and freeze for before Brayden comes...if you have any suggestions or easy recipes let me know! I can't wait to make Jennifer's chili!

Oh and here's another coupon code for you...
Restoration Hardware Baby and Child rarely offers them, but I just got a coupon code for 20% of your purchase (including items on sale) for the dates of 12-12 through 12-15:

Oh one more thing - If you've seen the Macy's commercial (Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus) and wondered what it was about here's an interesting article:
Only 33 more days to go!

I'm working on making a list of meals to freeze also!!!! We can swap recipes! :-)
I start my weekly visits Monday so we'll see if my dr starts mentioning inducement? I want to wait to as late as possible so maybe we WILL have babies on the same day! ha! Or you will probably end up having Brayden first! :-)

Just a word of warning.
Chili is not the best meal for a nursing Mom to eat..unless you want a baby up all night with gas!

I can't wait to see all of your Christmas decor ;)!

I told Kelly that Lasagna is always an easy to make and freeze!!!
