Last week I was on call at 37/38 weeks, and this week at 38/39 weeks was my last week of work. It was pretty grueling--on Wed I had a full day of 15 procedures from 7:30-3 with no lunch break. I've never worked that hard even when I am not pregnant, much less within a week of my due date! But all my patients wanted to get their procedures done before I go out on maternity leave so I had to keep going. I am so glad I made it to 39 weeks and through my last day of work today without going into labor! Thought I'd throw in a few pics of me at work just for fun...the nurses bought me a cake and flowers, so sweet! Now I am just hoping for a few days more to recuperate and get everything done before the baby comes. I haven't even had time to pack my hospital bag yet!

Regardless of how busy I was, I wanted to end my pregnancy work wardrobe on a high note, because I knew this was my last chance to dress up while pregnant! All of these outfits I would have been excited to post as individual WIW threads...I felt fab in all of them! And none of these pieces are maternity clothes, just my loose or stretchy regular clothes, so I can still wear them after the baby. Although I am scared of 4th trimester dressing...just when I had gotten used to dressing and showing off my baby bump, I am going to have to rethink the way I dress again! That is, if I have the energy to get dressed at all--I'll probably be pretty tired with the baby! So if I don't post for a while, you'll know why I'm busy...but I will come back as soon as I can with an update!

Which outfit is your favorite? Thanks for looking and commenting!

1-3. This sweater dress has done a great job of stretching to accommodate the bump--hopefully it won't be permanently stretched out!
Similar outfit in January:

Calvin Klein sweater dress
Black tights
Black Frye Melissa lace-up boots
Black Kate Spade trench
Michael Kors black studded satchel
WHBM silver bracelet

4-6. I love burgundy, tweed, fur and patent. Feels so luxe and wintery. It was raining so I pulled out my fave burgundy rain boots.
Similar outfit in November:

H&M burgundy cardigan
Gap black maternity tank
Halogen burgundy boucle skirt (elastic waist and partially unzipped)
F21 double buckle brown elastic waist belt
Betsey Johnson burgundy heart satchel
Aquatalia Vavoom chianti patent rain boots
F21 bronze bracelet

7-9. My "signature outfit", tweaked for pregnancy. But had to swap the leopard heels for ballet flats for comfort. Still doing demure bombshell with fitted waist and pencil skirts despite being a 3rd trimester pregnant apple!
Original outfit from last year, and similar outfit in September:

Nordstrom Hinge mustard paisley pussy bow blouse
Vince Camuto stretchy black midi tube skirt
F21 black elastic waist belt
Stuart Weitzmann red ballet flats
Fossil red satchel
Kate Spade black trench

10-15. I had bought this dress fall 2011 and sized up to an 8 because the hemline on the size 6 was too short for comfort. Several of you recommended altering it to take in the sides, but I never got around to it...I'm glad I didn't, because it worked perfectly as a maternity dress! It was cold (mid-40's) that day, but I really wanted to wear this dress. I tried putting a turtleneck under the dress, but just didn't like the look, so I just went with throwing a heavy parka on top to combat the morning chill. I think this might have been my favorite outfit for the week. I am still enthralled with the parka over silky printed dress look ever since I saw it on the Altuzzara Fall 2011 show:,,20518277_20518689_21001490,00.html
Similar outfit in November:

Anthro Winter Tree shirtdress
Gap black maternity tank
F21 double buckle brown belt
J Crew burgundy tights (just wore the waistband under the bump)
Frye Melissa brown boots
Alexis Bittar orange leopard pendant
F21 bronze bracelet
Fossil floral satchel
Anthro olive parka

16-20. Can't believe I can still fit into my Anne Fontaine shirt--yay! It has a stretchy back panel. Made it through my last day of work--so glad to be on maternity leave! (though I'm only planning to take about 6 weeks off).

Anne Fontaine white double collar button down shirt
Target stretchy ponte leopard skirt
Stuart Weitzmann leopard ballet flats
Banana Republic gold chain necklace
Jack Georges brown briefcase
Lafayette 148 caramel leather jacket
