It dpends on you and what kind of work you do.
Quoting ahleesha14:It dpends on you and what kind of work you do.
Definitely depends on your job! I am a nurse and I worked up until 2 days before my son was born.
Yea some people can work right up until they deliver others can't
Foirst child I worked during the day and went into labor that night. Second kid I had the baby the day I started maternity leave. Third baby I was off for a week before the baby was born. Final kid I was out for 3 weeks before. I had Short term disability and it was all paid for, so to go early you need a Dr's note.
I worked as long as i could. Up till 37 wks. I have a lot of heavy lfting and physical stuff for my job and started having bad braxton hicks so i decided to stop. I would work as long as u can cause once ur at home it will feel like u r waiting forever for that baby to come!
I had planned to work until 38 weeks, 2 weeks before my due date. But was put on bed rest at 37 weeks.
