I will be working until 39+5. The only reason I'm not working until 40 is because it falls on a Sunday. I'll take two weeks vacation before I start my maternity leave, so I'Ill be on 60% pay starting July 1st. There will be some unpaid time in there, but if I can manage to hold out until then I get 60% of my new wage which is 45% higher. Its a big difference. I dont know if ill make it if every day is like today-i could barely breathe and my pelvic pain is agonizing. I actually took some tylenol just so I could cope.
I work in retail and my official maternity leave begins at 37 weeks but I have to use all my holidays before I start maternity so I actually finish work this Friday when I'll be 1 day short of 32 weeks xx
