Im in the UK too. Your doc won't be able to help you... Its totally up to you. Think about your personal situation... Financially, physically after delivery, mentally how you will cope being a mum and out working etc. It depends solely on you and partners situation. But really if you can afford it take off as long as you can, they are only babies once. You don't want to miss out. Saying that some people go back to work early to get some rest!! Lol
