I worked full time until 38 weeks with my first. He was born at 40+2. We moved house in those 2 weeks before the birth and after finishing up work and I found it fine.

I worked up until 37 weeks and had DD the next week as a scheduled c.
Because I had so many complications I had spent a lot of my second trimester in hospital or on bed rest, so I really wanted to be a work for the last few weeks to finish of some stuff and be a bit normal.

First time mums - When did you stop full time work/cut back hours?
Worked full time till 37 weeks. My job was a mix of standing and sitting. Could have worked longer but got a severe bout of gastro which required hospitalisation at 37 weeks so decided I was done! Baby came at 39+4.

worked FT till 37 weeks with my first.
physically I could have worked till EDD as I felt fine and I have an admin job.
However mentally I was done and couldn't be bothered!
The 4 weeks of maternity leave I had before baby arrived were one of the best time of my life.
I highly recommend taking some time for yourself before you become a mum 😊

I worked until 33 weeks but I worked on my feet in a high stress job. I was full of fluid and just couldn't continue. I would've liked to at least get to 36 or 37 weeks but it just wasn't possible.

I was planning on finishing at 34 weeks, I'm a nurse. However, in my job, I have to take leave at Christmas, so I'll just take a couple of extra weeks leave and finish at 31 weeks, then go back mid August.

I'm not a first time mum but with DS1 I worked full time and finished at 36 weeks. He was born at 38+3 so I'm glad I didn't work any later! Similar story with DS2, I was working four days a week and finished at 35+2, he arrived at 38.
This time I'm again working four days a week and will finish at 34. I'll be ready by then!
