  • Depends on what you do for work. For example, a clerical job would not be as demanding as other types of work.


  • This is a very individual choice. I guess you should stop when you feel it’s getting too much, or you are feeling tired.


  • I worked until a week before I was due (I work in a cintact centre)
    I didnt like staying at home.

    If you have any complications and depending on your type of work check with your doctor.
    Keep in mind a lot of work places need medical certificates if you are due within a month.
    Biggest thing is going by how you feel.
    If you are tired, swollen, bloated or just over it, listen to your body.


  • Work as long as you feel you can.


  • Its really an individual thing. I think by law you have to start maternity leave at 36 weeks unless you supply a doctors certificate stating you are able to work beyond that. Most people I know work til about 35 weeks but if you’re unwell or have a difficult pregnancy then it may be sooner.


  • Its different for each woman and their pregnancy. I stopped working at 7 months with my first. At the time i was working at a restaurant so i was always on the go so i was very tired and i was in and out of the kitchen which became a hazard as the wet floors etc. With my second i stopped working at 3 months. I was so sick that i had to stop working.
