  • OH I hate that too. and yes I worked right up until two days before I was induced. Why two days b/c I worked over nights and I need a day to caught up on sleep and relax.Oh did I mention that I work at a hospital so I'm on my feet all day. man that just chaps my hide when women do that.

  • I worked as a waitress up until three days before I went into labor. lol, it was funny to watch me wobble around with the pizzas. But that would annoy me too

  • No. I quit when I was about 4 months pregnant with my first child and haven't worked since. I couldn't handle it. I was so exhausted all the time and constantly sick to my stomach (24 hours a sucked). I worked around raw meat and fish all day and the smell made me so sick. My husband told me to quit so I did. I've been a SAHM since then. That was 9 years ago.

  • I worked up until my due date.

    Your friend should stop complaining about them and just evict them lol. I'm not anybody's mother. If you can't do your fair share...GET OUT!

  • Hell to the yeah ladies! Hehe I worked two jobs as stated above I worked at payless and jc penney I was on my feet for 8 to 14 hour days (depending on if I worked one or both jobs that day) I had to buy shoes nearly a size and half bigger than normal because my feet swelled but I was about to have a baby and a good mother does what it takes! So congrats to all of you mothers who never used a healthy pregnancy as an excuse to be lazy! (Even though there where days when I would have loved to hehe)

  • Worked till 37 weeks with triplets. I delivered 3 days later. I could have worked more, but my belly wouldnt fit behind the wheel anymore, and if I fit then my legs were about 6 inches from the pedals.
