My boss is super understanding, and when I suggested a while back that I start working from home 2 weeks before my due date - he was totally fine with that. It isn't like my desk job is demanding on my body - but the 25 minute drive to the office, the 1/4 mile walk from the parking lot, the hike from my desk to the bathroom... by the end of the day, it all adds up to making me REALLY tired. Plus - the lovely ankle swelling, since I can't put my feet up at my desk.
It's really going to be weird for me to not come into the office for over 3 months! The longest I've gone without working since I graduated from college is a 2 week vacation. I know that maternity leave isn't 'vacation' but it certainly isn't going into a corporate office every day! It's going to be quite a change for me.
I'm looking forward to the weekend. Aaron and I are planning on going to the store and getting our final few items for the baby. Aaron is going to paint that wall in the baby room, and I'm going to put up the decals on the wall, along with putting away the gifts/clothes that are in the main part of the nursery. So - even though the furniture still isn't here - I'll feel like some progress has been made. And we are also going to get some pictures taken of Aaron and I by a photographer friend! We haven't had any good pictures taken of us since the wedding... and I wanted a nice picture of me all pregnant. Hopefully they come out well.
