I have one more week left, so will be nearly 36 weeks. Have only been totally over it this last week. I work in an office, mainly sitting at a desk all day. The weight of my stomach is making getting up and down from my desk very difficult. I spend most of the day in the loo and answering pregnancy related questions from other staff. I dont get much work done so its not much point in me being there any longer than the end of next week.
I have had a very easy pregnancy though. Not everyone is in the same boat.

I have a few weeks left, so I'll be around 29 weeks when I leave. My hours have already been cut down to just the weekends (first week of that started this week). I also have a physical job and breaks are not always certain since I work alone and have to try to fit in a few minutes when I can between customers (as well as cleaning and restocking the shop).
I'm looking forward to finishing up, we still have a lot of baby stuff to arrange and there are quite a few things in our house that need sorting out (and I really want to get it all done before the baby arrives).

Thanks for your experiences
I think I'll suck it up for longer. I'm thinking I'll aim for 32 weeks at least. I need to try and keep active so working is best (I guess...).

I left after 20 weeks. I had constant bladder infection, was Not permitted to drink water at my desk and they would call me back to my desk from the loo and lunch to tend to clients. It was also a very stressful environment. In a few word 'my boss was a ****'...and that is an insult to the poor chicken.....oh i never returned

32 weeks, but reduced my hours significantly from 29 weeks and performed lighter duties. In hindsight, I wished I stopped at about 28 weeks....I was big and uncomfortable with lots of fluid. But I needed the money.

Til 34 weeks, full time nursing. I really couldn't have worked anymore. I felt so huge and useless in emergencies.

First pregnancy I was actually on leave already for a slipped disk then never really went back, did some freelance work every month for some extra cash that we just banked.
