  • It probably depends how much unpaid time off you want to take. I worked up to the day.

  • We got married, he went back to Hawaii three days later, and I followed two weeks later. Didn't work (outside of the home) since. However, I do several things at home on the side part time.

  • I would have, but, I worked until a month before my due date and quit because I hadn't bought one, I needed to get supplies and put together stuff. LOL

  • I worked until 2 weeks before my due date with my 1st, but I wasn't going back so wasn't concerned about the time off. With my 2nd and 3rd I was already a SAHM, with my 4th I quit when I was like 6 months pregnant but again wasn't going back to work.
