I was induced with my last pregnancy. I worked that day right up to the induction. I was only given 6 weeks off (unpaid) and was told to return or my job would not be there (small company, exempt from FMLA.) I left at 3pm that day to be induced at 3:30, and was given a huge hassle about leaving work early. Mind you, this was a professional position with a 'reputable' company.
There is very little support for women in the US in terms of maternity leave, and even the leave that is protected (assuming you don't fall through the FMLA cracks) is really a very short time, so I think most women here will work up to or past their due dates.
In other countries, there is greater support and protection for most women, and they may well opt to stop working a few weeks sooner to protect their health as well as that of the child. If I had the option of 11 months, I'd probably plan to stop working about 2 weeks before my edd.
In my current job, I'm not really planning to take much time away, but I'm only in my office part time, and I am able to work from home the rest of the time. I plan to take a couple weeks, then work from home, and as I return to the office, I'll bring the baby with me for a few months.
