I gained seven with my last appointment too. I think it went all to my face!
Well. Today is my last day in the office for work. It's kind of crazy! I do plan on working from home as long as I can - I get 12 weeks maternity leave, and I really want to spend it with the baby. I've spent the last few weeks handing things off to other people, so my work load is pretty slow right now anyway - which is great.
Yesterday I went out to spicy indian food. Ouch. I don't think it's going to start anything... but the gas! I can usually eat anything without issues, but this morning I woke up with gas cramps (at least that is what I think it was....) but they went away after about 10 minutes of walking around. I did get a chance to practice my relaxation breathing, though - lol.
I've got a busy weekend coming up. Aaron and I are going shopping Saturday morning to get the final bits for baby (stroller, crib mattress, pack and play, few pumping accessories) and then in the afternoon, we have a friend that is going to come over and take some maternity pictures! I just thought it would be a nice memento to have some good pictures (instead of the ones I've been taking in the bathroom mirror of myself).
Sunday I'm hoping to set up the nursery. Of course - we have one wall that needs to be painted still, and I keep on forgeting to bring the paint can with me to get the right color. Sigh.
Enjoy your last day in the office. That is wonderful that you have the option to work at home that will make the next few weeks much easier.
Enjoy all your shopping and baby preparations.

Yay for you last day of commuting! It is great that they are letting you work from home.
You seem to be pretty upbeat. I need to take notes for my last few weeks!
BTW, I looked at the pic you posted on your blog and you have one nice backside! Maybe I am not supposed to comment on that, but at this point every compliment is golden!
I hope you have great day!Sounds like a fun weekend to me, hope you can get your paint today. A friend of mine had some pics done with blocks on her belly that spelled the babies name, but it would we super cute with just baby too I can't wait to see them, you must share.
Well, we went to BRU this morning and got everything else we really needed off the registry. The money shock wasn't that bad - Aaron's office actually gave him a shower yesterday (nice timing) with a VERY generous gift card, and I had another one from my office. We got the stroller, the crib mattress and the pack and play and a few other little things.
So - my new thing is that I'm having shooting pains in the lower part of my belly through my vagina (but maybe not there? Just that area?). This is the first real 'cramping' I've felt... wonder if it means anything! I'd just like to make it through tomorrow, since we are going to finish up the nursery tomorrow....
Good luck with the nursery today! Congratulations on being done with work!
Well - I did spend a bunch of time in the nursery today. We got that last wall painted, and I organzied about 1/2 of the gifts and baby stuff. All non-baby things are out of the baby room too! We put down the rug, and put up one of the decals... so things are slowly coming together. It's just hard to really 'finish' anything without the furniture (crib and dresser). I still have bags of things in the living room from the shopping trip - some things to launder and others to put together. But it feels good to have everything in the house, finally.
I have to say the craziest thing about begin pregnant is the whole fact that you just really have NO idea when you are going to go into labor. Pretty much everything else in life, you have a good idea when major life changing events are going to happen - when you are going to get married, when you are going to start a new job, when you are going to buy a new house.... but when will a new baby actually be entering your life? I know it's going to be sometime in the next few weeks - but it's crazy to my to think that even in the next 48 hours I could have a baby (or, on the flip side - in the next 3 weeks..... but I digress....).
