GO FOR IT if you can work through then work. I worked up to 2 weeks with my first and wouldn't have had it any other way but lucky I wasn't working with my second because I was in & out of hospital cause I was so sick.
So if u feel well enough Go For It.

I agree that you should do what feels best for you, but being second time around, I would advise stopping work just a little bit earlier !!
I suppose it depends on whether being at home looking after your first child is more restful than being at work, where you may get the chance to put your feet up more often.
I also work full time.... at home looking after my two other children and I certainly don't feel like I am any better off than someone who is out in the workforce !! I have 17 weeks to go also and am wondering how I will get thru those last few weeks when things start getting very uncomfortable.....argh
At least I know I can put a video on for the kids for an hour and lie down before its time to get back into it again.
All the best

I say go for it too!!
I worked till 3 days before No1 and 10 days before No2. Mind you i only worked 3 days second time round! Do what you feel is best, not what everyone tells you!

Thanks for the replies, that really have helped. Well only 11 weeks to go now and I sure am feeling it more than with my first, but like others who are full time mums at home what is the difference with being at work hey? I am sure we will all make it through fine.
Once again thanks for the comments, they have certainly made me feel like not everyone is against the idea.
