Did anyone have problems with other people saying you shouldn't be working, or making rude comments about your 9-month belly? I worry about that.
Nope. Never. I've been with my company 6 years, and we're a small place. Everyone was super excited for me and since the majority of us here are women, they would always ask for updates on my progress. I got lots of gifts, flowers, etc. from the people at my work.

The only thing was that my co workers thought I should take it easy and wouldn't let me be as active in the office. I like being active though. My work load was lessened, minor mistakes were let go, etc. I almost felt like they weren't taking me seriously as an employee, but it was only because they cared. Towards the end of my pregnancy, I flubbed up numerous times, even though I had more time to do things. Pregnancy brain is no fun. And then you move onto Mommy brain. It never ends!

I was in Labor my last day of work and didn't even realize it. So I guess that counts until the end. LOL

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

With my first, I stopped working about a week before his due date (and he was five days late) - with my second (I'm due in April), I plan to work right up until he comes - but I work from home, so it's not really that hard - with my first I was just so excited I couldn't focus anymore once I got that close!

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

I worked up to the day I had both my sons. Even though you feel like absolute crap at the end of pregnancy, the time after with your baby is so much more valuable and needed. My last three weeks at work was always treated with the caveat that I could be gone any day, and everyone was very understanding.

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

I worked until my contractions started a week after my due date. Besides the "omg, you're STILL here comments" it wasn't so bad. I went to work the morning labor started because I wasn't convinced labor had actually started, I had heard of too many people having contractions start then stop and I didn't want to sit at home all day if nothing was going to happen.

I'm working until my due date, I'm a school nurse and that way I'll only miss 11 days of work before the summer, and I won't get any paid as I haven't been here a year yet.
