Who all is still working? If so, how's it going? If not, how is maternity leave treating you?

I've been not working for 3 weeks now? Blech. So bored I would probably be working part time for fun if my car would finally get fixed, but I also have nothing to do at home other than clean (which I dont do ) so that's probably adding to my boredom.

I stopped working in May

But not by choice. We moved and DH got a new job and we only have one car. I commend anyone still working at this point in pregnancy! It's hard to be a SAHM too but I cannot imagine having to get up and look presentable every morning.

I think my last day will have been Friday. I told my boss not to expect me back in, unless I was feeling much better over the weekend. My BP was 156/94 on Tues, and its just not worth it. So I think Monday I start, luckily I will get 12 weeks of paid leave, otherwise it wouldn't be possible.

Been on maternity leave for 2 weeks now and loving it! Getting a lot done, get to lounge around finally, but get bored on occasion. I'm just enjoying this time to relax and be lazy before baby gets here.

I am working until I pop. I'm due October 20 and October 18 is my last day unless little Landen decides to come early! I hope he won't. I am a kindergarten teacher and it's still going great! The only difference is it's harder to tie shoes! haha

I'm so jealous of all you people, except Jackie, wow! I am due Oct 6 and was going to work until the 4th, but changed my mind a month ago to Sept 27. I have three weeks to go and I'm DYING. I want to have as much time with my son as possible, when he gets here, but going to work every day and doing as much as I do there is hard and getting harder. It's a desk job, but still. Tuesday I have a 10 am meeting with a very important client, then I have to spend all day doing something I've never done before (so have to be fully engaged ALL day) and then I have a big work party in the evening. It's a semi-black tie affair, so I have no idea what I can even wear that's fancy at this point, and heels, well, I don't know how Kate Middleton did it until her son was born!! I wish I was off now, but probably wouldn't know what to do with myself if I was...

I'm still working. I don't have a date I'm stopping set in stone. Figure I'll go as long as possible. My boss did say she figures I'll want off beforehand due to discomfort, but I'm hoping to stash as much money as possible. We're a pretty laid back office, so I don't get any flack for peeing every fifteen minutes, or extra snack breaks. It would suck having to be dressy everyday - my yoga pants see the office at least once a week now.

My hospital and doctor are less than ten minutes away, one aspect of the company is medical supplies, and a coworker is a first responder who recently underwent emergency childbirth training so we joke that I'm set if I want to work through labor and delivery.

I'm working one or two days a week. Either one 13 hour + day & one 7 hour day. Or just one 13+. It's not bad. I worked today & then don't work again till next tues. yay! I work with 2 other pregnant gals. One is like 27 weeks & she works three 13+ days & the other is 38 weeks & she is supposed to work the three 13+'s but is picking up all the OT she can b/c she really needs the $. She has a 2 yr old, a 4 yr old & another part time job. As of today she had been working 6 straight days of 13+'s. I feel so bad for her!

d***! i wish i had a desk job!!! i work in the pizza business and i'm on my feet for 9 hrs 5 days a week. i have 3 weeks left of that. on top of that, i'm pretty much the one who works the hardest there because half of the employees are too lazy to even so much as come in for their scheduled shifts. i'm pretty good at my job, but it equals up to a s*** load of stress!

I am still working, and am scheduled to work until I deliver. Hopefully that is sooner, rather than later I have a desk job, and am literally 3 blocks away from the hospital, so I'm not overly concerned with it...well, with the exception of the fact that tonight is my first night on 11pm-7am shift for a month, so I'm not too thrilled about rearranging my sleep schedule.

Last day in office is Sept 16th so I have 6 more business days and I can't wait to be off! Job is so stressful and I have so much to do that I haven't been able to and lately I've been so tired. Can't fall asleep at night and have to get up early in the AM... also commuting a hour in traffic when I can barely reach the pedal because of my belly, seat leaning back... It is NOT comfortable. I'm stressed and miserable by the time I get to the office.

I still work 9 hours a day and I plan to keep on working until I pop. I am really hoping that I can make it to either October 5th or 12th. I want another saturday baby
My job is semi desk work. I do get to sit when needed, but I also have to walk across the facility quite a bit.

I finished work for good at the beginning of August! I had about 2 weeks of being productive, then 2 weeks of pelvic pain and sitting on the couch. I'm feeling better this week so I hope I can start being more productive. Before baby comes I need to: make his mobile, finish washing his clothes, write my thank you cards, and clean the house.

I am still working. I just told my boss I will be taking the next 3 Fridays off (4 if Baby still hasn't come by then) My due date is Sep 29th and I hope I have only 12 more working days. Its a desk job and not too bad, but I would really like to relax, sleep in and lounge around for some time before baby gets here!

I'm planning on working until the day before I am induced, but I think if I were planning on making it to 40 weeks I might stop a week before my due date. I want as much time after the baby comes as possible. I mostly work from home though, so I don't have to be presentable and I don't have an uncomfortable commute. Mentally I am already a bit checked out from work.

I'm still working. I sit at a desk all day so it's not too bad, BUT the commute kills me in the evenings. I work from home on Friday's so that is nice. I only have two more weeks left, so I might try to work from home part of the day an extra day each week so I can avoid sitting in traffic for 1-1.5 hours on my ride home.

Like with DD, I will work until I have this baby. I only take 6 weeks maternity leave and it's all unpaid so I work until then. I would love to take 12 weeks but DH just switched jobs and took a substantial pay cut and we had to use up most of my maternity leave savings towards a water heater so I'm working as long as possible to save that back up. No worries, I have a fairly laid back job and I do a lot of sitting.

I am due on the 18th and my last day is the 4th. I have a desk job but am starting to feel pretty miserable. They just changed our office to allow jeans everyday, but my dresses are more comfy so that's what I wear most days. I've been working past my scheduled time too, trying to get as much done as possible before leave, but it's been nuts.

I am set for a c-section on the 1st and planned on working until the 27th. HOWEVER, even sitting is making me cry. Im in so much pain. I emailed the doctor this morning and told him that Im seriously going to hurt someone...so Im going in Friday and we are going to assess where I should spend the last two work weeks. My boss sees me in pain so Im working from home as much as I can. This week I will work from home half day tomorrow and all of Wed. I leave a detailed work plan every evening hoping my water will break at night....still nothing
