working

I'm due to have my little boy April 29th and I'm working. Should I come out early or continue working?

Don't come out early, you will be bore-uh-uh-o-r-r-r-r-ed.  My girlfriend wasted a bunch of her maternity leave coming out two weeks sooner than she needed to (she delivered four weeks after going on maternity leave) and found herself digging out old jigsaw puzzles to give herself something to do.
The exception to this advice is if you have not set up anything for the baby yet or done any shopping.  A tiny baby doesn't need a lot, it's not like they're coming home and need shoes and school clothes, but you do need to get a few things and have (if not a baby's room set up) at least a place to put the baby's clothes and supplies.

I was busy up to pregnancy but also remember being really impatient right at the end, and noticing it more when I was idle.  Try to keep busy with something that matters to you even if you go home and rest because of your hips.
