Re: How close to due date did you keep working?
Stupid me... I scheduled maternity leave at 38 weeks. I'm a teacher, and I wanted to leave before all of our standardized testing started, just in case something happened. I didn't want the administration to be left scrambling to replace me because planning for testing is EXTREMELY involved. Plus, I thought it would be nice to have a week or so to get things done before she arrived. Here I am, almost a month later, bored out of my skull! If I am working during my next pregnancy, I'll be working until I go into labor. I HATE having nothing to do!
