So I decided to take my leave as Early as possible, due to the fact I work with challenging- deafblind people. Also the fact that I'm up and down stairs all day cripples me after 9 hours at work. So as of tomorrow I'll be on maternity leave and I'm so excited as I still have energy to get everything done! I'm glad I chose to do it this way as was worried whether I'll have enough time with Baby, but seeing some of my mummy friends take theirs at 36/37 weeks and not able to do much as they're so tired and achy it seems pretty worth it! Anyone else taking theirs early?
