    Hey welcome to tri 3 :) I stopped work at 36 weeks but I used annual leave so my mat leave officially started at 38.5 weeks. That said because of my job I went onto restricted duties for my last shifts from 31 weeks basically. X

    Last week this week will finish at 32+6 but using all this years annual leave so maternity doesn't officially start till 38 weeks. Was hoping to work so maternity doesn't start official till due date but spd meant I just wanted to leave and I am ready for it :) xx

    I work in a school so technically the day the baby is born. But my last day at work was the last day of school when I was 37+2.

    I am starting mine at 38 weeks, although as I teach, I have a crafty 6 week break now!!

    I am only staying on so long as I am a head of department and I have new staff this year so feel it would be a bit mean of me to leave after they have only been there a couple of weeks. Mind you, I was in hospital at 37 weeks with my first and had him by emergancy section at exactly 38 so who knows if I am going to last or not.

    It is much easier to trigger an earlier start to maternity than it is to put it back if you are feeling okay.

    Well, there's nothing wrong with going on maternity early. Just means less time with baby...

    How long were you planning on taking off?

    Would you work not make your work load a little less for a few weeks. I left at 32+5 and would say, it was slightly early. The first few weeks were fine, But after a while... I regretted it x
