    Did you see that from Jan 1 your partner can get 2-3 weeks ppl as well? I was quite excited to read that the other day.

    You don't have to be out of workforce by 34wks OP. I worked up until 36wks and received PPL last year. You just need to claim it within 12mths of bubs birth, which obviously you will.

    My problem this year is I can only qualify for the BB, as I fell pregnant before returning back to work (unplanned) so don't qualify for PPL!

    whoops I mean i get 28wks in total not 10 weeks on 28wks lol. Its the company I work for we must finish by 34th week although i don't why other nurses i know in other hospitals work way past then and we have had agency nurses ready to pop before. It would be best to work as long as possible and save up the extra leave for when it is needed.

    Love the idea that my then DH will be able to stay at home for a little while with me to help out and just enjoy the time.

    Do you know if your company allows you to get a medical certificate to work past 34w? Look into it of you haven't already.

    Not for nursing, even though my friend in theatre worked to 36 weeks, maybe that's cause she can sit down and I am doing heavy lifting work all the time, which would have to slow down then I would be enforcing I had extra help.

    Oh I thought you meant 34wks was cut off for PPL - my bad!

    My work is 34wks as standard too, but with a docs certificate was able to work to 36wks easily. Good luck.
