  • i worked with my son all the way up till i delivered, with this one i plan on doing the same thing. its all up to you and what you do for a living. If you are having to lift heavy things id say you should probably take the rest of the time off but if its not bothering you to work then keep working. its more time you will have to stay home with baby.

  • With my singleton babies I worked up until the due date. I was healthy and able so it made sense. But with my twins I had a different job that was way more stressful, and I opted to leave work at 32 weeks, I was in preterm labor the next week and ordered to bedrest

  • IF YOU CAN THEN GO FOR IT.
    SOME GIRLS HAVE COMPLICATIONS OR ARE JUST LAZY. IT REALLY JUST DEPENDS.
    DONT OVERWORK YOURSELF, AS LONG AS YOUR DOCTOR DOESNT MIND THEN GO AHEAD.

  • I worked until 7 months with my first (I was full time on my feet all day), and I still continued to be active (about 4-5 days a week) at my church until i delivered. I also kept up all the house cleaning on my own during the whole pregnancy. I had paid leave from my work.

  • With my first, I planned on taking a week off prior to my due date, however, she came on that Monday!! ;) With this one I plan on doing the same thing. Tomorrow is my last day and she is due on the 27th (hopefully sooner). I still have a few minor details that I want to take care of before I have two little ones to take care of.

  • I would go as long as you can. I worked up until a week before my son was born. I had high blood pressure and was on bed rest for the last week. Congrats on working this long though. Good for you!
