  • your work wont make you quit infact they cant. you can work all the way up till you go into labor if you want as long as nothing is wrong and your dr says its fine. its all up to you. if you do alot of lifting you may wana not do that so much but they will just have to find you something else to do.

  • They don't take you out. Either your baby comes and you take maternity leave, or your doctor thinks it is wise not to work and you start your maternity leave early. Your boss has nothing to do with it.

  • I worked until the day before my son was born....but if it gets too much make sure you take it easy so you don't hurt yourself or the baby.

  • I agree with the other posters. Also, if you plan on going back to work fairly soon after the baby is born you should check with your employer about maternity leave. Some employers actaully offer paid or partial paid maternity leave; I know most don't, but it's worth checking into.

  • I was planning on leaving work 1 week before my due date, but I was pulled out due to medical complications--not pregnancy related, but it contributed. Work as long as you want, just don't overdue it.

  • Do they have a policy re: maternity leave? When I was working, my company's policy was that we got 4 weeks off before and 6 weeks off after. I felt so good with my pregnancy and my doctor agreed that it was OK so I negotiated to take only one week off before and add those "before" weeks to my "after" weeks so I took 9 weeks off in total afterwards.

  • It's all up to you.

  • I have the exact same due date! I'm planning on working till the very end, maybe even the day before I go into labor to ensure that I can use all my leave time for after the baby. My work has not expressed any desire to have me leave work before that, but I have no complications and have a very sedentary job.
