I stopped working when I was 39 weeks pregnant. I do a lot of physical labor work so I couldn't really continue to do that.


I have known women that have went into labor at work and that is completely fine to do if you feel well and there are no issues with your pregnancy. The best advice I received is to stop working when I truly felt like I couldn't do it any longer. My doctor was monitoring me and chose to put me on bed rest with my son. Talk to your doctor or midwife about your job and they will help you decide on what is best.
