    Back to work I go!!

    I'm so exhausted now and really was enjoying the Xmas holidays only for reality to come crashing down today.. I really dont want to go back to work *sob sob*

    I don't start my maternity until 38 week either so another month to go!! Boooo!

    Anybody else struggling to find their mojo this morning?

    Ah chicky, I feel for you, it's hard the last few weeks of work, especially going up to 38 weeks! 37 was tough enough! Just try to take it easy. Xx

    Danielle you lil soldier! I original gave them my maternity forms stating I would work right up until my due date but I sent them an email the week before Xmas changing it to my 38th week.

    Sleepysue that's some bad ass traveling! Your back must get so sore sat in your car seat all that time :( I only drive 24 miles a day and that's torture enough lol x

    I'm on first day of maternity leave and thank goodness for that as I probably got about 2 hours sleep last night at best. Starting as a mean to go on sitting in my dressing gown watching jeremy kyle. I'm kinda loney though, OH went back to work this morning. I have huge respect for you girls working till 38 weeks or more.

    I am dreading going into work on Thursday. I only go into school Thursday and Friday. I usually do an extra day on Wednesday but planning and get resources ready from home! I only have 12 more go to work days until my maternity leave- but I feel absolutely exhausted already! Xxx

    I don't know how you ladies choose to work right upto your due date! I've bowed out of work already! Although there were specific reasons why, I'm glad I did (even though I'm getting bored already, it's nice to have a lay in!)

    Erm this is rubbish. You can work right up until you begin labour if you want as long as you are up to it. Once you have baby you have to go on maternity. Maybe your boss is confused between law and company policy ?! The only exception I can think of is if you go on PG related long term sick within the last 11 weeks of PG then work can insist you start mat leave straight away. You should be able to check this out at direct.gov.uk

    I thought they could enforce starting your mat leave in the last 4 weeks? Xx

    Maybe they can but it's not the law that you have to stop work at a certain point. That's why I mentioned might be company policy.

    Hope you can get out of going to Newcastle. That'd be murder with your back, ouch!
