    I left at 28 weeks. I had been planning to find a new job before I found out I was pregnant so was really hanging to finish up work! I worked full-time, 8 hour shifts in a very stressful job (nurse) where I was on my feet all day. Having the three months off before bubs came was bliss as I had plenty of time to relax and do everything I wanted to do around the house.

    I finished at 36 weeks. I work in an office so lots of sitting down but it was a very busy and stressful job, long hours etc. I had to get medical clearance to work past 34 weeks but that was easy. My boss was pushing me to stay longer but I was done. Glad I finished then as DS arrived at 38 weeks. Next time I will probably leave at 34.

    With DD i stopped work at 37 weeks (office work, sitting down). The last week i only worked half days on doctors advice as i was in lots of discomfort due to swelling & had borderline high BP.

    I finished work on the Friday at 6pm then had her the next day at 10.50am. I work in childcare and being single I was unable to finish sooner despite it being a high risk pregnancy. Sickness benefits came to less than my rent was.

    Finished up full time nursing at 29 weeks then moved interstate where I worked a few days a week at a new hospital when I was 37 weeks.

    My job's similar to you, standing a lot etc, only sitting down on breaks (nurse)

    I finished at 38.5 weeks, tried to make 39 but didn't! Last couple of weeks were hard though. Most people at my work finish at 34-36 weeks, I just knew I'd get bored at home if I finished earlier. As it was DD was 41 weeks so I had plenty of time at home still!
