When did you stop working?

With my first pregnancy, with twins, I worked til 35 weeks.  I only stopped because of complications at work, not because of the pregnancy.  I was induced and ended up having a C-section at 37 weeks.  Those last two weeks were the most difficult because I wasn't doing anything, so I started getting bored and uncomfortable.  This time around, I'm 33 weeks and ready to give it up.  It's so much hotter this year, so it's been a lot tougher.  I'm so much more uncomfortable and it's a lot tougher because I'm chasing around two toddlers on top of being pregnant.  I'm scared to stop though, because I don't want it to get worse like last time.  When did you stop working?  My mom worked til she went into labor and I used to want to be like her, until I actually got pregnant...LOL.

I delivered 3 weeks early, so I worked until the day before! I would have been at work and gone into labor if DD had decided to come any later that day, lol.

With my ddI worked up until a week before my due date when I had to leave because my symphis pubis dysfunction made it hard to walk.  With this pregnancy, I'm a SAHM :-)

July 1999....I had my ds in March. I worked as a preschool teacher and could bring him with me when I went back. I lasted about a month and a half, then realized I couldn't do
it anymore. Even though I was just in the next room (he was in the infant room), I couldn't get used to somebody else taking care of my baby. About the time he was ready to start school, I had dd....soooo.....here I am :)
