When are you planning to go on maternity leave?

Postby Jessibabi123 » Tue Feb 05, 2013 5:08 pm

I'm currently 29 weeks along and work fulltime in a childcare centre with children aged between 6 weeks and 5 years old. Its such hard work sitting down, standing up, picking up toys, playing, singing, constantly all day. Im starting to really slow down, I'm so tired, my feet and back are sore by the end of the day.
I'm just curious as to when everyone finished up at work or when you are planning on finishing work?
My plan is 34 weeks.. Not sure if I'll make it though.

i've been off work for two weeks now, i worked fulltime as a housekeeper in a hotel and i was in so much pain half way through my days i couldn't take it anymore so i got my dr to approve early mat leave for me. leaving this early means i have to go back earlier, but i'll still get a good 9-10mths with the little one :)

I'll probably be working pretty close up until labor, unless my doctor tells me I need to go out early. I have to stand all day at my job for long hours so I'm hoping I hold up okay.
