    I worked upto 37wks, and those last 3wks at home by myself was so boring! DD came on her due date.
    Next time I will work to at least 39wks I reckon I have a non physical job so it shldnt be a problem.

    God now i feel like a right lazy bum!! I'm finishing up at 30 weeks (only 2 weeks to go!!). I have to drive on country roads for 40 minutes each morning and night and its getting so hard... i get so tired working a full day then driving into the sun! Also, my replacement has already started at work and as this is normally my quiet time work is really quiet for me atm. I'd rather be home 'resting and nesting'. Not awesome financially but we will survive. Luckily for me we are coming into DH's busiest time of the year being grape harvest and he gets pretty good overtime pay them so that'll take us through!

    Up until 2 weeks before with both babies. It got hard to sit on a chair all day, it hurt my back too much and the baby had dropped so I was very uncomfortable. I had alot of dr appointments, did shopping and got stuff ready, hung out with my ds all day watching movies, it was nice doing nothing.

    Lol this will be me. I'm offering to go in and do paper work (I normally go through everyone's paperwork to ensure its up to date etc) while on mat leave lol

    I planned to because I only had very minimal maternity leave, but ended up calling it quits at 39 weeks. I was just fed up.

    I know I've already commented, but gosh you ladies are good!

    I'm only 15 weeks and already I feel like I'm working that ****ty time when you have given notice! My bosses are great, but I just can't wait to get to the next stage in my life.

    Bring on mat leave I say! And fingers crossed we cope financially so I don't have to go back...

    With my dd I worked to 36wks I was a full time nurse and I struggled going that far - used a lot of sick days. Dd came 2 weeks later at 38wks. I'm hoping to work to 35wks this time as I'm parttime.
