Looks like I will not be so just wondering if any one else wasn't and what your plans are.

I am able to take up to 12 weeks, however, I only get one week paid.  The rest are unpaid which really sucks.  I will be taking 6-8 weeks off... I haven't decided yet.

I'll get 6 weeks off but 'Ill only have it paid for if I have time saved up which I don't because of taking vaction during the holidays. So I'm counting on my taxes to get me through until I go back.

I get 6wks for a natural birth or 8wks for a c-section paid (kind of) I'll only get $250 a week so thats a HUGE loss in pay but at least its something
After that I can take up to 12wks unpaid...but I won't be doing that

I can take up to 6 months off, however after 2 weeks from the union and 5 weeks of STD, the rest will be my accumilated time off (sick, personal, vacation and comp time). I believe I will be taking 4 months off, which will leave me with a couple weeks time upon return in case of emergencies.

This is me right now. I am just starting my job and I am 4 months. I don't think I can get short term disablity because of the pregnancy. With PTO time I should have 4 maybe 5 days. I am praying I don't need to take time off before baby or I am screwed! I am also planning on using some tax money but really need it to get my house updated before baby. So I am a little freaked. Plus since i am just starting I don't get FMLA at all so I don't know if I will have a job to go back to :0(

I can useFMLA to be off, but it is not paid per se. I have short term disability that I will use and then some PTO to make up the difference between the disability and regular pay.
