Currently pregnant, and wondering when I can buy shoes again.

I recognize that this is a dumb question in the grand scheme of the changes my life is about to go through, but most other stuff has been covered on Ask already.
I'm 37 weeks pregnant with my first. I own two pairs of shoes that comfortably fit (plus, flip flops, but those are getting increasingly less acceptable to wear). My feet have gone up about a half size (from 7 to 7.5), but the main difference appears to be some widening, especially around the toes. I've had some swelling, especially the last few weeks, but not a lot compared to other pregnant women I know. I haven't had any foot pain, either.
I'm wondering when I can start buying new shoes. Is there going to be any continued growth in the next few weeks, or after delivery?
