I think he said they were going to let him have 2 days off which is kind of depressing because with another c-section I'm sure I'll be in the hospital longer than that.

My husband usually takes a week to 10 days off, depending on what day baby is born.

Whatever he wants. But he is a work-a-holic. He will stay off the whole time I am in the hospital and hopefully a couple days after we come home. But he will go in late at least and get our son on the bus and DD dropped off at preschool for me I'm sure!

 Aw that is hard!  Yea, my dh never gets much time off either.  It's rough!  Do you have any family or friends which could help you out?

Depends on how busy work is, spring time is a busy time for them. But he can also work from home if need be.

My parents live close by so they will be here to help me and watch my 3 older kids.

My DH took off a week after our daughter was born.  When I had our son in December he was able to take off Dec. 21st till January 2nd.  His job is awesome and offers paternity leave now which they didn't do when our daughter was born.
