    I finished work on Friday so am wondering how my first Monday morning will feel. I do plan to rest as much as I can, finish the final bits of shopping and pray for nesting urge! :shrug:

    You may not have a job anymore? Surely they can't sack you two days before maternity leave?

    Oh wow, i started maternity leave on the 7th jan and i am so bored now. I have redecorated downstairs and not allowed to do anymore (hubby says) and my baby is bound to be late :( Let me know what you do as i am running out of ideas to keep myself busy lol. P.S. Nice feeling though - knowing you can enjoy you baby for a good while after the birth without worrying about work.

    Hello

    I finish on Friday....3.5 more days to go...woop woop!!!

    I have saved quite a few jobs to do so thought I'd share:-
    -Wash all of little ones clothes/blankets/bedding etc
    -Sort out nursury- literally just have the cot up and thats all!!
    -Pack and get all the stuff needed for my hosp bag
    -Have baby shower on 12th Feb, so will need to shop for anything else I may be missing!
    -Go swimming- brought a new costume today!
    -Make some meals for the freezer
    -Cathch up with friends etc
    -Buy any birthday cards/gifts that you may need for a few weeks after the birth incase you don't get round to it
    -Tidy the whole house
    -Organise my kitchen to fit in bottles, steriliser and all new baby things!
    -Get out all my clothes that I couldn't fit into out of the loft and probably re-wash
    -Probably become more addicted to BnB!!!

    Think that will keep me busy for a little while...I am like you have around 7ish weeks off then don't go back until 05/02/2012!!!!!!!!

    Hope this helps
    xxxxx

    I finish work on Friday and I think this has been the longest Monday of my life - oh how this week will drag I am sure.

    When I am off I am planning to...
    Finish off decorating nursery
    Wash all baby clothes,blankets etc
    Paint the kitchen and hallway
    Shop for remainder of baby items
    Shop for my hospital bag
    Pack hospital Bags
    Cook and freeze batches of meals
    Sort out rooms (not had chance since we moved here in October)
    Go to visit my parents/family/friends on mat leave
    Rest! I'm really suffering with SPD so I really cant wait to stop travelling into London.

    I'm sure there will be plenty to do. I'm also due on 22nd March so makes a couple of us all going/gone on maternity leave - yey!!!! X
