I had to wait until I had my baby to start my leave. I just couldn't afford to take longer. I was working up until the afternoon appointment where my doctor sent me to the hospital.
Yeah I think I will end up doing the same thing. I sit down all day so I don't have it as bad as some people. My husband wants me to take leave earlier, like a week or so before my due date. I just see that as a week more I could be spending with my baby girl when she gets here =)
Depending on your job, I left at 39 weeks because my legs and feet were so swollen.
