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

Christmas Eve was my last day of work and my DD was born on January 2nd. The ONLY reason That day was my last day is because I didnt want to deal with returns lol

I thought you were induced for your last baby?

I worked until 5 days before my due date. Had her 2 days after my due date, so had a nice week off.

I am a teacher and my dd the first time was the last Monday of the school year. I planned to work Friday and direct the band on Saturday, but had a backup plan in case I didn't make it. I went into labor that Friday night and my oldest was born on Saturday at 8:19 pm.

#2 was born in July and I went back to school when school started in August.

#3 was born in June and I went back in August.

I felt comfortable going back because I felt great after my deliveries and my DH stays home so I wasn't putting them in daycare.

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!

I stopped last week - due today. Haven't been sleeping and didn't want it to affect my work - but now I feel like I have too much time on my hands. Doesn't help that its been rainy and gross for the past 6 days. Just ready for my LO to get here already!
