How long did you take off on maternity leave?

I am planning on taking off the full 12 weeks. It will be a nice break, but I will be glad to go back when the time comes.

I don't work full time... But my guard unit gave me 6 weeks off then I had to show up again to drill and trainings.

 I took off 4 weeks with each of my kids. I couldn't afford to be out of work any longer than that. :( I would have LOVED 12 weeks!

The first time I had to go back to school and work two weeks later. The second time I was a sahm mom so that doesn't apply.

With my DD, I took a year leave.

My son, 8 months.

12 weeks is a good amount of time. Enjoy it.
