So my due date's this weekend, and I asked to be pulled from work beginning next Monday with a doctor's note. My doctor has said no, as I'm perfectly healthy, and I need to continue working until I deliver, even if it is past my due date. Simply being tired and uncomfortable doesn't count as medical justification to stop working.

Of course, she's out of the office today, so I just spoke with the nurse, who said she'd be too busy at the hospital tomorrow delivering babies, and I'd have to wait until Monday to speak with her. Grr.

Has anyone else's doctor refused to pull them from work, even once they're past their due date?
