I'm finishing up at 38 weeks too. You can stay on longer but I'd like a rest before babs arrives - I just hope I'm not sitting around until 42 weeks! I'm a bit behind you so I'm still fairly lively, but can feel the tiredness creeping back in the last few days - up at 9am yesterday morning and conked out at 9.30 last night AND slept through the whole night not a bother!

Veryhappyveryhappy, I am planning on finishing up 2 weeks before my due date. I have a weeks holidays left so I may or may not add that on & go 3 weeks before due date. I am feeling very well at the moment & hopefully that’ll continue however if you are wrecked tired & suffering headaches I’m sure if you mention it to your doctor he/she will sign you off a little bit early. There’s no point in continuing if you’re feeling miserable especially in a job like yours which I’m sure is quite physically & emotionally challenging.

I am finishing up on xmas eve as consultant has already told me that they will induce me at 38 weeks which gives just just over 10 days. I really want to keep my time for when baby arrives rather than driving myself insane beforehand.

Never really thought about it to be honest! Wouldnt mind doing it if I thought I could get away with it I suppose but dunno if my doc will sign me off if I'm not really sick, unless I suppose I just said I was exhausted tired or something! Tut tut, veryhappyveryhappy, now you've corrupted my innocent mind! :o0 :o0

My boss just wouldn't pay me if I took off early, so I'd only be shooting myself in the foot. Although of course if I'm feeling awful, I'll stay home, but I'm hoping I can last the distance! If the doc would sign me off a week early and the boss would pay me, I'd go for it, especially as you are knackered and suffering from headaches. I have it handy, I only have to sit at a desk and pretend to work :o0

I am finishing up three weeks before my due date but I am probably going to work from home for the last couple of weeks and only go into the office when I really have to.... I am finding it hard enough now to get in to work on time and work a full day, I can only see it getting harder.... :o0

ok tinyfeet i have u converted lol!! :o0 c the ting is im never off sick eaither and am entitled to full pay while out sick!!.... So you can see why its so tempting!!... My doc wouldnt give me a cert for no reason either have an app on wed and again in 2 wks time so reckon on this wed i might start gettin in the exhauseted bit and then in 2 wks totally exaggerate it again and c what happens.... I thought everyone'd be doin this!! You've all got me feelin bad now!!!
