Dropped from full time to 4 days at 28 weeks and stopped at 35 weeks. My job was pretty demanding but I am someone who is always on the go and was so bored at home for the 7 weeks before DS was born.

Left the day I found out I was pregnant with DD1. Was working in a Chinese restaurant at the time, walked into the kitchen to start my shift and spewed my guts up all over the place. My boss wasn't impressed and said it might be better if I didn't come back.

34 weeks. I was over it! I was commuting 1.5hrs each way on crowded trains, had a stressful job managing a team, and sitting for any length of time was getting painful!

35 weeks but cut down to 25 hours a week at about 28 weeks as I just couldn't handle it

I worked in a generally unsafe environment, exposure to lots of diseases with high work loads and very demanding pressures in terms of deadlines etc. I could have went longer but my BP was creeping up each time I visited Ob/gyn and I decided that it just wasn't worth it. My employer and manager were very supportive of this although I knew I'd be taking sick leave so had to work twice as much to ensure that the next person who walked in didnt walk into something unmanageable.

I get 6 weeks paid leave from work and then Centrelink PPL, but have been told that both only kick in once baby born. Therefore I will be working as long as possible.

34 weeks. Luckily because I had my DS at 36 weeks. I somehow knew I was going to go early and the stress did not help, I actually requested to finish up one week earlier then planned.

I went from 40hrs a week to 25 at 16 weeks, due to HG, and left work at 28wks due to complications.
