Are you going to work up until you start labor or will you be starting leave shortly before your EDD?
With FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) I get 12 weeks unpaid and my paid leave from work doesn't actually start until I give birth. I kind of don't want to work up until I start labor, so I'm trying to give a starting date of my leave to my boss.
I was wondering, how many weeks in advance are you ladies giving (if you're taking off in advance)?
A girl I worked with last year literally worked until she had to go to the hospital. She worked 1.5 shifts while having horrible contractions and I do not want that to happen to me!!
