    My work is really flexible, I'm only 9 weeks so at the end of my first trimester I will talk to my boss. I'm an admin manager and its not very stressful, plus I will start looking for a replacement as soon as I am 13-14 weeks so I can train them and not have to worry for when I'm on leave. It also gives me the choice of reducing my hours when I get closer to EDD.

    I have told my husband I would like to work for as long as possible even up to the week before induction date especially if I've reduced my hours

    I left 5 weeks prior to my due date & I'm glad I did! I wasn't doing physical work - I work in insurance so I was sitting down all day, but I found that it was really hard as my belly got bigger. Plus it's not good to be sitting down all day, you need to be up & about as often as you can!

    I think minimum I probably could have gone would have been 4 weeks... But there is women in my antenatal class that were still working with 2 weeks to go. Just depends how you are coping with the pregnancy physically.

    Yay I'm all booked in to leave work in five weeks! I will be 34w2d and we do have a 6wk policy too, not sure if they want a letter for 2 days but should be easy to get.
    Even tho my jobs office it's rather stressful with a lot of outputs and I'm up and down all day. Can't wait for my leave!! I'm using 3 wks rec and flexi time first.

    Congrats chances!

    I am currently 33+3 and now only working 3 days per week (since 32 weeks). I plan to finish when Im 36 weeks, so I will have a few weeks of rest before bub arrives. I would love to finish now, however I want to have as much time with bub as possible

    I have 6 weeks to go of work after this week and I can't wait . I have a desk job and currently working full time, my ankles absolutely are killing me . I'm holding in there but I am so glad I'm finishing up 5 weeks before I'm due. I will be about 34 weeks when I finish up . I'm looking forward to it that's for sure.
