    Originally I was going to finish at 35+2 take 4 weeks leave and then start Mat pay, but I actually finished at 33+4 am now taking 4 weeks holidays and then starting my Mat pay a little earlier as my SPD started to interfere with my driving and I had to call it quits!

    I'm going at 36 +5.....my MW wants me to go sooner but I want as much time as home with baby as poss. Plus I would just get bored at home!

    I'm taking annual leave to start with and my ML kicks in at 39 +6...day before I'm due. As far as I'm aware it can't start after your due date!

    6 weeks to go and counting! I'll be 36+6. I would have stayed on a tad longer, as I work in an office and don't have to do much walking if I don't feel up to it, but my work closes from 23rd December until 4th January. My ML officially starts on 4th January when my office all return to work, and I'll be 38+4 :) x

    My last day was Friday (37 + 1). My dr. was nice enough to put me on medical leave although my maternity leave doesn't start until the baby is born.

    39 weeks....have had it easy so far (am now nearly 33 weeks) but am getting more tired again now....however, my employers are FAB so I am working from the odd day here and there, and I have 2 x 3 day weeks coming up as I have annual leave to take.

    Whats of more concern right now is the thought of doing a 5 hour car journey this weekend (and back again) and a 9 hour on the following friday and back again) - think my superwoman halo might slip for the 9 hour one!!! OH is completely unsympathetic and so life continues as normal with me doing the lions share of the work!

    I'll be just short of 38 weeks when I finish. It's weird now though as I'm thinking it could possibly happen any time before then, so I've already cleared out the personal stuff from my desk and computer and am trying to keep everything up to date every day, just in case!

    I leave on November 25 and will be over 38 weeks. It's getting hard especially because I wake up at 5 a.m. to get to work, but I'd rather make sure I maximize time with baby after he is born.

    I'm carrying vaca time over to next year so that I don't go back to work until January 2013!!!!! :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

    I am finishing at 35 weeks, I know its maybe a it early but I already have 2 kiddies so want to spend some time with them, plus I fancy a couple of weeks off before xmas. I am using 4 weeks of holiday and then starting mat leave at 39 weeks, taking a full year and then using more holiday at the other end...... so I will still be off til baby is a year anyway. So I figured I m ay as well finish at 35 weeks.

    I only do 20 hours and its an office job, so I have found it easy enough.
