I'm a nurse and I'm not sure how long I'll be able to work for before I go on leave with this one. I had to go on medical leave at 4 months pregnant with my last due to having placenta previa and spotting with bad cramps everytime I was at work. My midwife felt that 12 hrs constantly on my feet and heavy workload was too much. Then I had to go on bedrest.

Here in Canada, if your working, you get Maternity leave of 1 year just before your due, or right after the baby is born. The government pays 80% of your wages every 2 weeks for a year. It's a bit of a cut and some budgeting but at least you get to stay home with your baby for a year.
