The US has appalling maternity leave. 12 weeks is good compared to most places I've heard of!  

We get six months statutory maternity pay from the government, which isn't much (it's the same as you get if you're unemployed,only if it's maternity pay they will tax you on it too!), and many employers will top your wages up. Unfortunately I won't be getting a top-up. After, I'm hoping to go back 2-3 days per week. I hate my job but we need the money.

My friend had her baby boy about 10 days ago now! He came a month early! Healthy as ever. He is so small, 5lbs :) She wasn't really prepared for that but we got the baby shower in just in time. Hope everything is going well!!

Omg a month early? I'd panic - that's only two weeks away in my case! A December baby hasn't even crossed my mind. Glad to hear he's doing well though. 5lbs isn't a bad size for that gestation.

All good here. I only have one more week of work left after this and then I am done! I feel like I'm growing loads now that I'm in the final few weeks.... no stretch marks yet but I'm sure they're on the way! Six weeks to go and o really can't wait to meet him/her. The curiosity is killing me!

Exactly a month today until due date! It's getting so close.

I'm quite uncomfortable now, because back pains and sharp baby kicks and needing to pee all the time! But it's still not too bad really - I had been working part-time for a few weeks and then stopped work altogether on Wednesday, and that's made a huge difference. I would be in much more pain if I was still working full-time... I don't know how some women do it.

So far it's definitely not as horrible as the first trimester. Am hoping to goodness that I don't go overdue. Can't wait now to meet this little person, see if it's a boy or a girl and to give them a big cuddle. Come on baby!!!

I'm 30lbs up!!! Reckon I'll hit at least 35lbs by the end of the pregnancy. Never thought I'd see the day when I step on the scales and see the weight I am now. Here's to burning 500cals per day when breastfeeding!!

I know it's just a silhouette but I think you still looks small! I think most of my friends have gained at least 50lbs. I think my best friend is going to have a tough time losing..

Well that's me officially overdue. Babs due date was yesterday but no signs of labour. Had a slight scare yesterday over reduced movements and had to go to hospital, but everything was okay in the end.

Impatiently waiting for my little one to make an appearance now
