If you are a full time worker what is your companies policy on when you need to take your maternity leave? Reading through my company's policy it says that I must take it 6 wks prior to the due date unless I get a note from my doctor that it's ok. I'm going to try to push it one more week though as I have my parents coming for my wedding around that time and want to postpone my leave until they are at least here (already decided to get a cleaning person in to do my major clean instead of me cleaning walls and windows and ceilings! lol).
For those that have already had children and were in full time jobs before my question is - provided it's a normal pregnancy when do you start to feel like work is just too tiring? I've been warned that you start to just get too tired to work but would working up until my 5 wk to go mark be much of an issue?
