I was put off of work with my first at about 23 weeks. My dr. just wasn't a fan of women working much after 20 weeks. She would always say (even before 20 weeks) if you want to stop working, just say the word and I'll write the note. I kept telling her I wanted to work. But at around 20-23 weeks I started getting really tired and emotional and started crying in her office one day and then she said it was no longer my decision she was taking me off work. I got 15 weeks of sick leave and then started Maternity Leave. At 27 weeks I got in a car accident so I would have been taken off at that time FOR SURE had it not been before that.

This time, it seems like it would take a lot for my dr. to think about taking me off work. Last appointment she told me I should think about taking Maternity early because I have a stressful job and I'll just keep getting more tired and tired, but never once did she mention she'd put me off on sick leave.
