How close to due date did you keep working?
 
This is my first pregnancy, and I just wanted to see how long before your due date you stopped working?

I am due on a Monday, and am scheduling patients right up until the previous Friday. Is this crazy? If I am late, then I will have a little bit of time off....because I knowingly cannot schedule people. It just would be wrong. :headscratch:

Just wondering what everyone's experiences were!

I worked until the day before or off contractions with both of my boys. With my daughter I was already a stay at home mom and had her a week early.

lol I worked until 10 days before DS was due, thinking that would give me time to get everything done... he was born that very night, not 6 hours after i got off work!

I planned to go to work the day DD arrived. Working up to the end was a nice distraction.

If all goes well this time I'll be working as close to 40 weeks at possible. With my first I had to stop at 24 and my 2nd at 28. I'm hoping with diet and working out I can keep working. I know it will be helpful working until the end. I was so bored with the others by the end.

I worked until the day I delivered with both boys

DS1-- had a leak in the morning at work (though I was just leaking from a full bladder) went to get checked out on my lunch break, said 4 cm to to L&D he was born at 8pm that night (4 weeks early)

DS2-- had what I thought were cramps, BH contractions (3 weeks early) off and on all day at work. went to my regular prenatal appointment, water broke in hallway on the way, DS2 was born less than 10 min later.

Thankgoodness my work is only 15 min from the hospital.

I worked until the day I went into labor (two days early), but if I would have put others out by going early, then I would have stopped at least a week early.

I was on bedrest with DD but with this one I imagine I will work until the day he comes. I can just see me walking down the hall at work and my water breaking, lol. Luckily I work in a hospital so they can just load me up and take me down the hall

DS16 I worked until he was born at 41 5/7 days. Worked as a waitress and in a daycare center as well as finishing high school.
DS8 I worked until I was 38 or 39 weeks. I was working 0.9FTE as an RN so I was on my feet constantly.
DS4 I worked until 38 weeks- same job but 12 hour days. I could not handle it at the end.
