    I started my mat leave on Monday. To be honest I wish I was still at work, but it is so nice to relax a bit.

    I've got 4 weeks left but I haven't been in this week due to having a bad cold. I'm leaving the job as I'm only contracting and don't qualify for maternity leave etc but I'm starting to feel a bit bad about not being there, it seems like I haven't worked a full week there for months :( wondering if I should just leave earlier. x

    Finish work at 37+2. Thats 3 and a half weeks to go for me. Although mat leave officially starts when baby is born. As it's due in the summer holidays.

    Had a nightmare last night though that I got made redundant while on leave :-( horrible. Really love my job and am quite a bit worried about having it to go back to.

    My last day is at 36+6. I've got a week off at 33 weeks, and then every Wednesday off for the following 3 weeks. I'm exhausted and struggling already but I'm moving to the ground floor later today to hopefully make things a little easier!!

    I finish at 34+4 as it's end of term, officially my mat leave starts at 39+3. I get just under smp and contract ends too so not really mat leave as I can't go back! I was just lucky end of term comes at a reasonable time. I'm off all the time too, I'm sure people think im pathetic but screw them, squiggle and I come first and I'm not overdoing it for the sake of pride. X

    My last day was 36w+4d. I took 2 weeks annual leave so ML started dead on 39w.

    I could have done another week to be honest as I felt really well (plus baby was 9 days late lol)
