So Jack is due this Sunday but I have been trying to get him out the last few days. 

First attempt was a shady Asian foot massage. We have a bunch of massage places around town that you never really know how legit they are, but I made my husband take me on Tuesday night and it was AMAZING. Clearly didn't work but I would so go back. $16 for 20 minutes. Heaven.

Up next was doing the dirty which was also unsuccessful.
Last night we went walking and even though my stomach felt tight the entire time, nothing came from that.

Yesterday, a girlfriend drove me to Studio City to eat at Caioti Pizza Cafe where they are known for a salad that helps induce labor. (It's the dressing)
The salad and pizza were both delish, now waiting to see if it helps...

It's called the THE salad... pretty basic but very tasty. They have a chalk board in the restaurant where they keep track of the babies born after eating the salad. Regardless, it was a fun little road trip.

Happy Friday!

Waiting Game

39 weeks pregnant as of yesterday so the end is near! I still feel pretty good, I have enjoyed lunch dates with girlfriends the past week and finished my Christmas shopping. I see the doctor tomorrow and we'll see if there is any progress. I am ready for him any time after my hair appointment tomorrow :)

I stole an idea from a friend of buying Jack a new Christmas book each year and writing in it so this is the one I picked since we are in California. 

His stocking came from Pottery Barn and I just love it. 

Thank you bags for our future nurses are ready (Starbucks card and candy inside)

Loving this ornament a friend picked up for us (don't worry, Frappy has other ornaments on the tree)

Off to put my feet up!
