I'm due at the end of Feb and would like to finish off work at the end of Jan, but am worried about how I'll cope through Dec. I work in retail and am on my feet the whole day. I even eat on the job if it's busy and we're understaffed. Dec is our busiest time of yr, so staff are not allowed to take annual leave at that time. If I finish off in Dec instead, that would be way too early, but at the same time, if I get too stressed, my blood pressure may go up and adversely affect mine and bub's health. I'm normally quite fast and efficient but may find myself too tired to maintain the same pace also.
When I chat to the boss, I think I will set my end date as 31 Jan anyway, but was wondering how everyone else went with working in their 3rd tri.
