WIW week 40

Well, I have been reading all these weeks that rarely do babies show up on their due date. It seem that my baby wants to be the rare bird to start the process on her due date at the very least. Perhaps she'll show up before midnight ... I predict she'll show up tomorrow, but it's awfully close to the original intended finish line (Perhaps she gets that desire to always be on time from me? ;-)) Any way here are some things I wore right up to the end.

First up is favorite dress, you've seen this one before. I had to make some changes to how I wore it because my bustline has increased along with my waistline, so I had to layer a minty green cami underneath. I like the effect of the kelly green and the mint.

Second is another Old Navy dress. It's a sun dress with spaghetti straps which I wear with a regular bra, hence the light weight cardi in navy also from Old Navy. I like the impromptu square neckline the sweater and the dress create. I also added my yellow LC tote which I carried with outfit 1 as well. I have not been one for switching purses lately -- too likely to forget something for all that.  Next time I post, I'll be a new mom!  Happy Thursday YLF!

    Wow DV - you look fab! And the "real" countdown is on now! Here's wishing you a wonderful birthing experience :)

  • Sara L. replied 9 years ago

    Looking good!  I almost bought a very similar dress from Old Navy but it didn't fit quite right.  Good luck and hopefully you get to meet your little girl sooner rather than later!

  • carambola replied 9 years ago

    Wow, so exciting that you'll get to meet your new addition soon!! You look beautiful.

  • Echo replied 9 years ago

    Oh, wow, you are SO close! How exciting! And I cannot believe how chic and fashionable you look right up at the very end (I am envious!). I will be thinking of you and wishing you, your new baby and entire family the very best!

  • Jen W replied 9 years ago

    You look incredible! Pregnancy was not an attractive time for me, so I'm always struck by how lovely you've continued to look and the effort you've put in to maintaining your style. Well done! Wishing you good luck as you begin your labor. Meeting your new beloved is an incredible moment!

  • Day Vies replied 9 years ago

    I was quite surprised when the doctor informed me that for various reasons today really is the day. Imagine that! I've added another outfit I wore just yesterday. It seems I've stuck with the blue/yellow/green color family.

  • Mochi replied 9 years ago

    Oh my gosh! You sound remarkably calm. I'm wishing you an easy, stress-free labor (as much as is possible) and a safe arrival back home with your new sweet baby. 

  • Day Vies replied 9 years ago

    Mochi - That's what my Mom keeps telling me. I guess if I were in some severe pain and fluids were everywhere I'd be in a panic (like the movies). With the exception of our excitement, things seem pretty normal around here. We're preparing to go to the hospital later this afternoon -- so events seem pretty orderly almost like a fire drill (you know where you're going and what you're supposed to do, where to meet up with the family etc. etc.) almost "normal".
