  • I didn't go out for maternity leave until I was in labour. I was actually on my way to work and then had to make a pit stop at the hospital LOL.

  • My last day is Friday and I'm having a c-sec on Monday I never missed a day either. I also worked all the up til I had DD too. I think it's pretty common to work til the end unless you have problems or are put on bed rest.
