A little worried about my maternity leave...

I'm currently 17+3 weeks pregnant and was planning to take my maternity leave a month before I am due to give birth. Problem is I have been off sick for the past 3 and a bit months with sickness & migrains. I have heard that if you are off sick for any length of time that your boss has the right to put you on maternity leave earlier than planned. Is this true, am I'm concerned that this might happen to me due to my sickness & current time off. I was hoping I could have as much time with the baby as I can before returning back to work, but if my boss is entitled to do this I am worried I will lose out valubal time with my baby.
A little help would be appreciated, thank you!
