I am 40+ weeks and am still showing up to work everyday (although I am not doing much while I am here...obviously). Just wondering if anyone else was and how you were holding up!

I'm not quite 40 weeks- My due date is on Sunday...
But tonight I go to work one last time.
It's not too big of a deal, I teach part-time at a community college... It takes about 15-20 hours a week. Tonight, I give an exam, then teach a very easy and fun lab, and then all I have to to is finish grading (and support the sub...)
I'm actually glad I'm doing this, 'cause I might get restless waiting, especially with all of the BH contractions and crampy feeling reminding me that labor is around the corner!

I usually work up until the due date, but with missing 3 days of work last week I opted to begin my maternity leave then as I have to burn 9 days of vacation before short term disability kicks in.

It has been nice to be around the house. My legs are definitely less swollen and I've caught a few naps here and there.

I'm also almost done with Eldest (the book after Eragon.)
