    I was due the 29th Sept and worked up until the 15th! Was great actually as my maternity cover started at the beginning of sept, so I didn't really have anything much to do and anyway, everyone (SMT) was so worried that I might give birth on the floor that they didn't ask me to do any real work!! Skiver, moi?

    I was due on the 4th November and worked up until the 29th October (although technically not, as my last week was half-term). It was fine and I had no problems other than the baby switching off the SmartBoard accidentally. Having said that, the minute I was off I did get crippling sciatica that completed incapacitated me for the last few weeks and I suspect that was my body's way of telling me to slow the hell down!
    It's different for everybody - it can be done but your best bet is really to see how you go and how you feel.
