With Izzy and Gabby, I worked right up to the day I was induced. With Izzy, I was a server. Technically, I didn't work RIGHT to the day because I was put on bed rest for a weekend before it was decided to induce. She was born 18 days before the due date. Gabby was induced 5 days early.
My blood pressure has been a little high at my last two appointments. Thinking about this is starting to make me nervous because the wedding I booked yesterday is only 11 days before my due date. I guess, worst case scenario, Jason gets to shoot that wedding.
I guess that's the downside to working right up to labor: You never know when that will be for sure.
I didn't even think about it until after I had booked the wedding. My only initial thought was that a week and a half should be fine.
Working moms, how long did you wait before going on maternity leave?
