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.

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

I teach part time. With #1 I worked until the end of the semester, which was her official due date but M came late. With #2, I worked till about 2 weeks before his due date (again when my classes end). Expecting #3, will work till about a month before the due date as that is the class schedule I was able to work out.

I also am trying to do an at home craft business, so anytime I'm not working or taking care of the kids, I devote to that So I guess even when I'm officially 'off work' I'll still be working till I go into labor.

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

With #1, I planned on working till the due date. There were some concerns over my blood pressure (somewhat irratic but no preeclampsia) I was advised to work from home the week prior to my due date which I had planned on doing however, DS1 came 1 week early.
We're expecting #2 at the end of Nov and am planning to work till the due date....only because I have the flexibility in my work schedule to do so and out of home that is. I've always worried about water breaking at the office so this eases the anxiety.

My plan all along was to work right up until I delivered. I had 12 weeks to use for maternity leave and wanted it all with the baby. I ended up delivering at 31 weeks, so I indeed worked up until I delivered.

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

With my first I actually worked until after his due date. Went home a little early in the afternoon on day 13 after his due date because lunch really did a number on my stomach and had him later that night.

I stopped working a week before due date. I was willing to work till the due date but there was holiday season so I gave myself some benefit.

#1, worked until work closed for holidays (then went into labor)

#2 was walking through security at work at lunch time... walked to a friends office, she came with me to another building to my desk (I made phone calls) and we walked to my garage and went to daycare to p/u DD. my boss who has no kids gave me the award for working the longest I was driven directly to the hospital.
