41 weeks today...

Today is the really big deadline day for Dave. Of course, it's also the first day I woke up and thought I wish he could stay home. Oh well, he'll be home tomorrow - though so will the boys... Unfortunately, all the people who are supposed to have artwork in to Dave by now are being slackers and so there's a very good likelihood that Dave will need to go in Monday and Tuesday as well, which I'm beginning to feel like I'd really rather he didn't.

It occurred to me just before that there is a pretty good likelihood that this time next week I'll be holding my baby. If this baby was to be born at the same gestation as Bryn, he'd be two days old in a weeks time. Of course, that might not happen either. In that case, I will actually get to have a November baby! I've always wanted a November baby. I don't know why. I really love the month of November - much better than October actually, which is probably the calendar month of the year that I'm LEAST, I dunno, attracted to.

Mum would love me to have an October baby because apparently no one in our family has a birthday in October, rofl...

Whatever the outcome, it isn't long now, and it still feels very surreal and like it's happening to someone else. At least it's going to be a nice warm week for having a baby :).
