    Just a general question really, intrigued to know when everyone will be leaving.
    In leaving 25th August at 28 weeks. I hate my job and I'm also getting a months bonus so money wise it's like I'm leaving 32 weeks haha!

    I'm having two weeks Hol before mat leave starts and probably going on Mat leave a week before I'm due.
    I'm due 2nd Dec, will take about a week or two before as mat leave and two weeks annual leave before that :)
    So will prob go off at 36 weeks, if I can last that long :)

    I'm thinking of going off at 36 weeks. It's a killer commute so don't know how I'll cope with it - I'm already struggling!

    2 weeks before due date but didn't think it was too bad...maybe I'm naive lol I get paid double time each Sunday I work (which is every week) so would rather not finish too early. Plus I'll only be working Sun, Mon & Tue from 34 weeks so shouldn't be too bad :) I can always bring it forward if it gets too much x

    I'm not going to be off until I'm 38 weeks - fortunately I can do a lot of my work from home so I am going to try and 'finish' earlier so at least if I have to work I can be comfortable at home!

    Unfortunately I am the main breadwinner in the house so I'm limited on how much time we can afford for me to take off. Being grown up sucks!

    I'm going at 37 weeks! At least I plan to :) As my job isn't very physically strenuous and the people already fuss over me!

    I'm taking my leave from 30 weeks which will be around 5 September.

    I work in a cafe, serving customers. so I'm on my feet for the majority of the day and feel so exhausted at the end.
