If you work and plan on working after baby, how long are you going to take for maternity leave?  Will you get paid?

I am working part-time now, and will right up until the end. I will go back to work eventually... not sure when though. I am hoping to stay home a year or so, but if we dont stop spending so much, I might be back to work before Christmas, lol. So we'll see.

In the meantime, I will be an unpaid SAHM. BUT DH and I have always based our budget on his income alone so I dont HAVE to work. When I do work (on and off here and there) my paycheck goes to the extras: like paying down debt, buying a car, buying a house, going on vacation... never monthly bills.

I will be working up until the end unless I'm told not to by my Dr. Once I leave I think we supposedly get 6 weeks paid leave but I will be taking at least 8-10, probably more if I end up needing a c-section. I will just call when the 6 weeks is about to be up and let them lknow that needs to be extended!

I'll be 37 weeks tomorrow and I'm going on maternity leave this week. I thought about taking 12 weeks off but once the baby comes I'll start getting paid.

 That's amazing!!! I thought we were lucky that DH will be able to take a week's vacation time when baby is here!

With our first my Hubby never got to attend an apt (other then the gender u/s) and had to go back to work while I was still in the hospital. But when we conceived our second Hubby changed jobs. He got to attend every apt, and got 6 wks off after delivery with both our second and third. Hubby works 5 on 5 off now so we schedule each apt on his 5 day off weekend, and then once I deliver he gets the 6 wks. He may go back after 4-5 wks though because he is taking his vacation once I hit 35 wks, so he may very well be on vacation when I go into labor LOL (I can only hope)

Yea we have gotten spoiled, and this isn't even his vacation time. Its something called the family medical leave. So it doesn't take away from his annual time.
