So, you should start planning now.. I honestly don't mind.. I get good vacation hours and sick hours.. By the time this baby is born, I'll have almost 3 months saved up.. I just can't take any time off..

Oh...we have plenty saved. I've been saving over 1/2 my paycheck each month for the past 3 years more or less. By the time the baby is born I'll have almost 2 full years of salary saved up. I'm just preggo and complaining!

I'm going to have to sit down with my employers and discuss this. It hasn't even crossed my mind. I am a nanny, and we discussed that I would just bring my baby to work with me after he/she was born, we just failed to discuss time off.

I was just being a whiner when I started this thread. By the time the baby is born, I'll have 2 years worth of salary saved from my paycheck alone. Dh also has salary saved from his paycheck, but he's responsible for investing and our retirement accounts.

I hope everything works out with your employers.
