My EDD is November 30th, which is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. I've only been at my job for 17 months, so I don't have a lot of paid time off. So I am planning to work up to Thanksgiving (unless baby comes sooner). I feel good physically, but mentally I don't want to be here. I have pretty much everything in order for my 8 week leave, so now I am just counting the days. Anyone else still working?
Anyone Still Working?
I'm doing the same exact thing. My EDD is Nov. 30, and my last day at work is the Wed before Thanksgiving. I am a little stressed about leaving for 12 weeks, as the office is incredibly understaffed and my boss is making it clear that he will be quite burdened while I am gone. But, I try not to get hung up on it. I am really looking forward to having some time to myself before Baby gets here, although lately I wonder if I'm even going to make it to next week!
I've never officially "joined" this DDC, but my EDD is the 24th, so I'm working til then and not coming back. Kids 1 and 2 were each nearly 2 weeks late, so I won't be too surprised if this one goes long, too, but I'm just done with work, and more specifically all the people at work, one after the other with the same: Still here? When are you due? How you feeling? Etc.
All very nice people, and all well meaning, and in other circumstances I might be touched by their concern/interest in me, but at nearly 39 weeks here, I'M not a very nice person, nor am I well meaning : )
Glad I am not alone! Well, for your sakes, I wish I were and that you could be home, but at least we can commiserate. I too get asked "still here?" and "how are you feeling?" During this pregnancy, I have decided that I will NEVER ask a pregnant woman how she is feeling! Since I announced my pregnancy, I must have been asked that question 1,000 times! Anyway, I am counting the days of work. After today, 6 more at most. :)
