I don't want to miss DD first steps. I start back at work in 5 weeks and so anxious I'm going to miss it. She'll be just 12 months.
She's been walking with her walker and around furniture since April, she can stand on her own for well over a minute but refuses to take steps on her own.
Any tips on getting her moving

Unfortunately I think walking is just one of those things our bubbas will do in their own time. If she's skirting furniture and can stand for a while maybe she's not that far off.
Hope you don't miss her first steps.

I agree with pp's. My DS furniture walked for ages, stood well, loved his walker thing and then all of a sudden he was walking. I don't even remember his first steps as such, it just went from 2 steps to 6 steps to walking!

I know you can't make them but I felt the same with dd1 (going back to work and she still wasn't walking). One day she was holding herself up against the bath and it had a tiled ledges around the bath itself. I rolled a ball along the edge and lo and behold without realising what she was doing she let go and walked after the ball. I wept with joy.
She actually didn't walk properly for several weeks after that But I still count that as her first steps, and I was there.

Ask whoever will be looking after DD to not tell you if she does walk for them.. it might sound silly, but you will be blissfully ignorant to whether she walked for someone else once and in your mind those first steps that YOU see will be her first steps
FWIW DD walked behind her walker for months and was about 13.5/14 months before she walked on her own.
