SMP is not based on the previous weeks before leave. It's based on an 8 week period between weeks 17 and weeks 25 of your pregnancy. But it is based on whatever your pay is during that period, so if you were sick at that time and were on reduced pay, that will be taken into account.

Flowery good to see you smile so that would mean it would not effect me then. I actually felt anxious when I saw the other reply.

It's a funny system really isn't it, I know someone who managed TWICE to get her annual salary that included annual bonus AND profit share into that window!
