How many weeks before baby is born are you all taking maternity leave am a full time. Home care worker and am due on 10september thinking maybe end of june begin of july
Ooh you are due the day before me! Have you found out what you are having yet?
I was going to start Mat leave 22nd August, but then realised I would be sat at home twiddling my thumbs for 3 whole weeks, so think I am going to change it to the week after, 29th August, then I only have 2 weeks thumb twiddling!
I dont want to work right up to my due date, as it is a 45 minute journey to work and I want to be able to relax and unwind for a couple of weeks (and get as much sleep as possible!!) before baby comes xx
Legally you can take your maternity leave from 29 weeks and this is what I'm doing. I don't plan on going back after mat leave finishes, hence why I'm leaving so early. Really it's up to you when you leave xxx
I'm due on 6th August - last day of work is 8th July (4 weeks before) but my official mat leave won't start until 31st July, I'm taking three weeks as holiday. I don't want to finish too early and be thumb-twiddling but I also can't bear the thought of dragging myself into Manchester every day when I'm too far gone! 4 weeks should be just enough for me to potter about doing nesting tasks and also to do some obligatory lunching and relaxing! I CANNOT WAIT!!!
My due date is the 7th Oct, thinking of taking 1 week maternity before, and then two weeks holiday so finishing on the 16th Sept. I then have 2 days left over, so might take the previous two fridays off aswell and have 2 4 days weeks..
