I finished at 33 weeks, the last two weeks of 12 hour shifts on my feet nearly killed me!!

34 + 6! I was told if I wanted to work past 34 weeks I would need a dr to clear me each shift there after

This time I'm finishing at 28 weeks but my ds was a prem. First time I was going to finish at 32weeks but went into early labour at 29 weeks a combo of 12 hr shifts with nights was too much. Most of my friends worked til 32 to 34 weeks

I guess it depends on how heavy your ward is. I finished at 33+3 and I'm so glad I did! I would get home from work and be an absolute wreck! Plus, it was pretty hard to do anything when my tummy was constantly getting in the way.....haha

Supposed to at 39 weeks but finished at 38.5 weeks. I was lucky though as I was able to get lighter patient loads that didn't keep me on my feet all day and had an easy pregnancy. Most people finish up around 34 weeks

30 weeks for me, 60 bed aged care facility and ten hour shifts got too much, i had planned on going to 36 but back pain and palpitations squashed my plans!!!
