36/37 weeks, I work in a nursery so lots of running round and I'm going to be knackered. I've asked my manager if I can take all my holidays for the year before I go so it might change depending on that.

I intend on finishing work at 32 weeks which gives me the entire UK summer school holidays off before baby is here (due 7th sept)
No reason apart from this will be my last baby. I have a 5 year old too. And i intend on spending quality time with him before baby is born and also have some time for me too ☺

Just wanted to say as a United States citizen I am incredibly jealous of your maternity leave laws ! I will likely wait until I'm 39 weeks before taking off. We only get 12 weeks (unpaid) leave but because of finances I'll likely have to return to work after just 8 or maybe 10 weeks.

Same! It's frustrating! I still have a while to go before delivery, but it stresses me out because I don't want to wait until the day before. Saving PTO is a nightmare, because some days I just have to push through my fatigue, MS and just days of raging hormones and it's really not fair. Most Americans can't afford 12 weeks unpaid, so I too, will probably go for the 4-6 weeks out.

I feel so bad for you US mamas. It’s just not right. I’m so grateful Canada does what they do, I get a year or year and a half off with my babies and get paid to do it, even if it’s not tons, it makes it work.

I'm incredibly jealous! A whole year paid, I can't even imagine that. I don't think I would want to go back! ha! But yeah, we get the short end of the stick. They promote family life and such, yet basically leave you hanging at a very vulnerable time. Not asking for a hand out, but at least give me something so I'm not stressing to go back to work so quickly.
