I'm pretty sure it's 26 weeks.
However, going back full time purely in order to up your maternity pay could be seen as a bit dodgy. Don't think it's actually illegal as long as you've done the 26 weeks beforehand - but I really really wouldn't let on to your employer that this is your intention!!
Also - I THINK its 26 weeks before the end of the 15th week before Expected Week of Childbith - so you could in theory go back full time just a couple of weeks before getting pregnant. Not sure about that one though
