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

I worked until the Friday before my Monday c-section. I would have worked until the day I went into labor if I had stood my ground and refused to be scheduled for a c-section but that's post for another day and another forum. GRRR! I wanted as much time home with the baby as possible.

I got off work at 4:30 pm on my due date. Contractions started at 7 pm. I started maternity leave the next day (she was born at 10:37 am).

I was getting up to go to work when I realized my water had broken. I hadn't planned for any time off before so I could have as much as possible for after.

With my first I worked until I went into labor. With this one, I think I'll put my maternity leave in the weekend before I'm due because I have a longer commute.

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

I was a low risk and healthy pregnancy the first time and worked until my 40th week but ended up not delivering until week 44! This time, I feel like I might need extra time to prepare for baby #2 so I plan on dipping out of work at 38 weeks or so.

I worked until the day I went in to labor. Good distraction and it kept me active, plus i needed every paycheck to save up for being home with my little one. Of course, I know this was only possible because I was lucky enough to have a healthy pregnancy.

I took two weeks prior to my Due date off, good thing I had that planned as I was 1.5 weeks early.

I ended up working on my due date(Fri 6-15). I was off Sat/Sun and my water broke Saturday! DS2 wasn't born until Tuesday tho.
