    I had full intentions of working full time as close to my due date as comfortable.

    I only got to work up to 28 weeks as I had a massive bleed and had to be hospitalised for constant observation/bed rest until DS was born.

    I work in an office environment, very physically undemanding. The most draining thing was the commute (45 mins each way).

    What job do you do? Surely you should be offered a stool or chair to sit? I remember years ago working at KMart and the pregnant women on the checkouts got a stool to sit on. Would your work accommodate this?

    I'm not much help, I worked up until I was 38 weeks + with both babies. I had cushy office jobs though but it was still really hard to waddle to and from the car and around the office.

    The company I was working for's policy was to finish up 6 weeks prior to due date so 34 weeks. However I was working full time in retail, also standing on my feet all day, and when my BP started increasing significantly and I was getting stressed at work I finished up. So I finished at 30 weeks. Just as well for me as I had my DD at 34 weeks, coincidentally on the day I "should" have finished up work hahaha

    F/t at 29 weeks as my contract ended but i got a serious kidney infection at 22 weeks and was still suffering from it.At 31 weeks I filled in for my FIL secretary when she went on a weeks holiday which was like a holiday compared to my old job send maybe 3 letters a day vs 300-500, make up maybe 5 files a day instead of 300. Answer 15 calls rather than 150 before lunch. See 5 clients vs 200 you get the idea, mostly I read a book and enjoyed the aircon and not having to take public transport

    When I was preggers with Billy I left at 36+5 and delivered him two days later at 37 weeks due to high bp. I was struggling towards the end, office job, painful sitting all day. With this preg, I also have high BP (medicated) I am aiming to leave at 32-34 weeks so I will have maybe a month before bubs comes because I think I will deliver early again.
