I have developed a cunning plan to make my final weeks at work more bareable and my manager has whole-heartedly agreed with it. It is my intention to only work mondays wednesdays and fridays in the final weeks, and then I am going to have five weeks off (mainly over the xmas period) until the birth. This means not having to work more than one day in a row for quite some time! I have worked out that I am only working properly full time until about week 30, which pleases me quite a bit. Only nine more weeks of a full 5 day week and then I am technically part-time!
