Re: How close to due date did you keep working?

I'm finding myself in this situation. My work was planning on being flexible in case I went late, but I officially put in my leave for this coming Monday.

The other day, my co worker came down with a mild case of shingles. She cannot be around pregnant little me, and since she's the only person who does the finances (we run an annual fundraising campaign that closes at the end of the month), I will have to take my leave on Monday now.

Another co worker is out after having a hysterectomy. Our staff is down to 4 full time people (including me) and 2 part time people.

So far baby appears to be progressing but I really hope I don't go a week late! I only get 6 weeks paid, and can add an additional 2 weeks unpaid, but I'd really hate to do that.
