May 29, 2008 4:15AM
Just thought id post and tell u all how excited i am that today is my last shift in work until April 2009, horray! I start at 16.30 and dnt finish till 10.00 tomorow morning so it will probably drag but the end is near. Cnt believe everthing is moving so fast, my mat leave doesn't official start until 9th June but im taking next week off as Annual Leave. I wonder how long it will be before the bordem sets in, lol its just hitting me though that i will have a baby at some-point within the next 5-7wks depending on how stuborn it decides to be. Is anyone else feeling excited that their mat leave will soon be starting or are u dreading spending the next few weeks with nothing to do but think about the scary birth, lol. Kerry xxx

I am counting down at work already and I dont finish til end of August, lol. Enjuoy!

hi kerrie! that is fantastic news that you finish today - i'm horrified at your length of shift though- 17hrs? i'm not suprised you desprate to finish. dont worry about being bored either - take the time now, cos you wont get it after!! read, internet, shop / window shop, big clean (if you can be bothered with this of course!!), pampering etc. if you ever have a second, you wont get it either, cos you'll still have the other!
on the other hand, if you want to look after my 3........!! only joking, the 2 eldest are back at school next week!
i hope all goes well with labour & delivery for you!!

Cheers ollier2001, talking about looking after other children iv still got my toddler running my ragged so i dnt think ill be that bored, lol. The shift is pretty long but i get to sleep between 12.00am and 6.00am so i suppose its not that bad really, doesnt matter anyway coz its my last one, ha ha ha Kerry xxx

I am due Saturday and have been off since 23 April. It has been fab, just being able to organise some stuff, have some lunches, sleep whenever I like. Don't worry about being bored, just enjoy it!
May 29, 2008 4:57AM
I am so jealous Kerry - I have another 3 weeks to go although I am now only doing 4 days a week! I will have 3 weeks at home before my due date and am terrified of being bored! Even so am desperate to finish and my job sounds much easier than those long shifts!
Enjoy your time off !
May 29, 2008 7:51AM
Ive been off for 3 weeks now was meant to officially leave tomorrow i worried i was going to get bored but you dont!!!
I seem to have so much to do but everything takes a lot longer, you can sleep when you want, get up when you want, and totally focus on your baby!!
Its fab!!!! xxxx
May 29, 2008 7:54AM
YEY enjoy yourself kerry, I am sure you wont get time to be board.
I have another 4 weeks left at work and baby due in 7weeks 5 days. I am already starting to get excited though especially as we are almost in June and I can then say my baby is due next month! not long now!
May 29, 2008 7:57AM
Bet your excited Kerry! Thats a long shift mind, make sure you get a good sleep! I have been finished for nearly 2 weeks now and loving every minute of it so far. Not been bored at all. Got the house cleaned from top to bottom and all the baby stuff sorted and I am having a few lazy days too so its perfect! Enjoy!!! Tammi xxx

i had my last shift yesterday! all colleagues held a surprise baby shower for me and i received loads of wonderful thiings for baby and me...and a lovely cake!it was very overwhelming!i now have approx 5-7 weeks before baby (or 4 weeks if i decide against a VBAC-another story..!!!) and i have to admit i am wondering if i will get bored, lonely etc.....i am relieved to finish though as it was getting exhausting!!!
May 29, 2008 8:21AM
I can't believe that I finish work in 10 weeks, it has gone so so quickly...so what have people been doing on their weeks off? I don't think I will get bored!!!!
Han and bump 24+4 xxxx
May 29, 2008 8:24AM
Congrats on your last shift.
Im having mixed opinions on mine, I dont leave for another 6 weeks yet-but I dont wanna leave too soon-I dont want boredom to kick in and although I am really looking forward to leaving (One step closer to having my little one) I think ill miss it as well, I really like where Im working. Im sure you'll find pleanty to do though hun xxxx
May 29, 2008 9:36AM
I'm definitely counting down the days! 6 1/2 to go! I finish next Friday and don't go back to work until April 2009 - yay!! I do wonder if I'll get bored but I'm hopnig the weather will be nice so I can relax in the garden and enjoy the calm before the storm, ha ha!! xxxx
