I'm 7 months and wondering if I should work up until delivery or stop before I get close.

With my first I worked until a week before i went into labor. This time I'm only 5 months and not working. It depends on you. If you're feeling ok and can work I'd continue working. If there are health reasons to stay home or if your job is becoming to day difficult then stay home

why would you stop working at 7 months?

A couple days before he was born, but that's because I was having contractions and couldn't sit in an office without wanting to scream or punch something. :)

I worked until the day before I delivered. The day I delivered was my day off.

I left the Army when I was three months pregnant. I was so sick I was getting daily IVs though.

I didn't work with my first, with my second my water broke while I was at work, with my third I went into labor on my day off.

First, didn't work past the very beginning. Second was on bedrest for the last 6 weeks, third left my job 2 months before my due date.
There really isn't a perfect time. Just depends on what you want to do, and what works for your family.

Until 38 weeks. After that day I just couldn't do it anymore. So I called my boss and told him I'd had enough and was throwing in the towel lol
