I'm currently 9 weeks pregnant and am thinking over when to go on my maternity leave. I work as a cleaner, and I had originally planned to stay as long as I can so I spend more time off with baby.
However I am beginning to think I am really goibg to struggle as I get bigger as the job involves alot of bending down/ on my feet for 4 hours straight with no break, I'm not sure I'll cope very well in late stages! My mun thinks I should go off from about 32 week's.
Was wondering what u think or if there is anyone else on here who worked as a cleaner and when u left?

I'm leaving at 36 weeks. I was going to go at 37 but having just had 3 weeks off over Christmas and feeling so much better for it I've decided I deserve the extra week.
