My plan is to keep going till 38 weeks. My works policy is that I have to use up my holiday before starting maternity leave but I have no idea how much that'll be so I need to have that conversation with HR. My job is basically all manual labour and on my feet so I'm not sure if I'm going to make it to 38 weeks, since I was on crutches for the last month last time and I can feel the ache in my hips starting again already. But I'm hoping that I can use holiday instead of sick leave so it doesn't trigger my mat leave early if I do have to go off. My GP told me that currently the advice is for 3rd trimester women should be working from home, so my work is under the current belief that I will be going back on leave in 4 weeks, but I think the advice will have changed by then. I want to take a year, but my husband also wants to take some time off so we are negotiating at the moment!! Hope you all enjoy your weekends, sounds like you have fun plans! We have no plans and can't decide anything so the kids are running wild in the house at the moment while I drink coffee!!
