I'm sorry mama, my husband had to work on our wedding day; he worked 5-11pm. He'll be taking at least a day or two off, but I'm not sure yet.

Yikes:( That has to be very hard!! my hubby will be taking two weeks vacation but the guy who will cover him is on vacation 3000 miles away so If I give birth early than I will be in the same boat and he will have to wait for the guy to come back to take his vacation.

If we plan it right...lol... then we should have her on a Wednesday which is DH's day off, then he can take Thursday off, and then his weekend off consists of Fri-Mon. So, maybe 6ish days off, which will work ok.

H ecan techinically take as much as he wants. We have saved so he can take 2 weeks off.  But he will probably return after 10 days.
