    Pfft peedy screw them. You've got the benefit of being able to leave early as well as have extended leave afterwards. You'd be crazy NOT to take that opportunity!!

    I'm working up until 36w and I'll potentially be having the baby at 37w lol but it's diff for me cos with hubby away I don't really benefit from the time off; I don't want to spend all day every day home alone.

    Honestly I'm okay with going back - one day a week will be okay and could be a nice break. But if I could take more time off I totally would. I would love to be a long term SAHM. Shame my bank account disagrees lol.

    You just gotta do what you have to. My mummy friends are turning out to be quite opinionated and judgemental. Luckily I'm good at ignoring them. 😊

    Lol peedy mothers are the most opinionated creatures around ive ended up such a sobbing mess from comments friends have to say about me or my child i take everything personally also so if someone would make a comment lf my child being small i would take tht as they think my child was starved. I just keep opinions to myself and never say things to people about their kids lol. Mothers can be a$$holes. I worked til i had my son i enjoyed the company of my work mates and sitting in an air cond office. This time i think i might finish up a little earlier we will see how i feel.

    Ergh completely agree with you all ... I switched to working from home when docs first suggested too much fluid and bed rest - turns out I don't need it but am grateful that I'm not waddling about the office. We've had so many pregnancies latest at work and everyone has worked up to really late in their pregnancy (2 had their babies on last day of work, 2 had them the next day).

    I would like to say I'm past caring about others opinions but yeh they still run around in my head.

    I'm also going back to work at the end of 18 weeks and hubby taking over as stay at home dad. Don't even ask about the comments we've had about that!!!

    Haha was just thinking today I don't know how ladies have perfect bikini lines prior to labour without spending a fortune at beauty salons. I am just grateful I have very fair hair and not much hair on my legs. I miss seeing them! Haha

    Almost had to get hubby to cut my toenails the other night! I suffered through it ... But next time I might have to give up the last of my abilities to look after myself!!

    Woof i love that! yes stay at home dad im sure would raise some eyebrows and plenty of thoughtless comments. Do whatever works for your household. I remember being in hospital for check up night i had my csect done the doctor said i just need to see if you have started to dilate i covered my face and half laughed half cried and whispered to my husband. The doctor asked if everything was ok hubby said yeah she is just embarassed she hasnt shaved her legs. Id sorted the bikini area by the legs hadnt crossed my mind. I wasnt exactly expected hospital trip

    The worst is the number of times he has had 'you realise it's not all sitting watching daytime TV' ... I cannot imagine anyone ever saying that to a mum!

    Unfortunately my DH would love to be a SAHD cos he thinks it's exactly that lol. I can't wait until he's home for those first 4 weeks and realises what hard work babies are haha. Will be an eye opener for him I bet!!
    Actually just today I was thinking I might get hubby to shave my legs and cut my toenails haha. Bonding experience right!
    I shave my bikini area blind. I'm getting pretty good at it!!
