Re: When did you stop working?

With DS I stopped on my due date, stupidly thinking he'd arrive soon (he was two weeks late).

Still working with this one as I only have 6wks of paid leave and honestly can't afford to take unpaid leave.

Re: When did you stop working?

With my son I worked the Friday before he was born on Tuesday, but I didn't have any little ones at home. Is there any way you can switch to part time for awhile before taking off? It might help.

Re: When did you stop working?

With my ds1 I was taken out of work 3 weeks before. With ds2 I was taken out of work in oct and he was born in Dec. I am now attempting to be a sahm so if i get the chance to have another I wont have that stress to deal with.

Re: When did you stop working?

For my first, I stopped working that morning I had him I couldn't afford to take off early on disability pay. Besides, I was a paralegal and I just stopped carrying heavy things and didn't go up and down the stairs much anymore.

With my DD, I was due 1/9 so I stopped working the last week of December.

Now I am just a part time office cleaner but I have no intentions of stopping at all. I probably do more home than I do at "work"

But I was told that if I was actually working full time they would have taken me out this past week.

I've worked until three hours before delivery (1st baby) and with this one I worked until 24 weeks 5 days, when I had complications and put on bedrest, I am now 29 weeks and will probably stay off of work until I deliver.

With my first I worked up until the day before I had my dd, and I was a week overdue! Since then I've been a SAHM though. But I am in school, and my finals are the 12th of Dec and my due date is the end of november so I will have to get back into gear right away and finish out the semester!

Re: When did you stop working?

I planned on working until I went into labor. However, with ds1, the doc put me off work and on modified bed rest because of my irritable uterus and the unstoppable bh contractions that were so frequent/hard they actually started to change things, just a tad. I was 33 or 34 weeks at that point. He was born at 38w6d and I went back to work when he was 6 weeks old. With ds2, I was fired (put on bed rest for a week for irritable uterus - stupid bh ctx again...and i'd already missed some from ds1 being sick)...around 28 weeks or so and I've been a SAHM ever since.

With my dd I worked until the day I had her. I was up all night having contractions and was getting ready to go to work when my water broke. I decided I'd better call dh rather than go to work!

With ds, I quit my job when I was 6 months preggo.

With DD1, I think I quit a couple weeks before she was born. She was 2 months early though. I was showing signs of pre-e, so I decided it was better to quit. I did end up delivering early so it was a good choice!

With this pregnancy, I won't be working at all, so it's not an issue.
