  • I took a day off to go see my doctor at 33 weeks. I had my daughter late that same night, so I was roughly not working for... 25 hours.

  • Well with my first and third pregnancies I never did. I worked up to and past their due dates. My second baby was a complete different story I had dr. orders to stop at 30 weeks. She was then born at 34w2.days. Oy! What a mess. She is a fine young adult now. Thanks be.
