Not working, but I would be up until the day before my c-section if I hadn't been put on bed rest.

I'm getting short term disability (which pays for crap... But pays the same as my maternity leave. They are one in the same.)

As of right now, the plan is for me to go back to full time once my 8 weeks post c-section is up.

Are you still working? Until I deliver. I learned I can work from bed, too, so I could probably work part time through some bed rest.

Did you take maternity leave yet? No. I'll take some time off for about 6 weeks once the baby comes.

Are you planning on going back to work or staying home full time? Going back to work, though since I don't have a regular schedule I don't know how many hours I'll take on right away.

Are you still working? Yep, but my last day is December 18th. I am using the rest of my vacation and then starting the 12 weeks of my leave.

Did you take maternity leave yet? Not yet, but soon.

Are you planning on going back to work or staying home full time? I will be going back full-time on March 24th.

I am self-employed and I have been working 10-12 hour days. Ugh. This is the busy season for what I do. Yesterday I started at 7:30am and didn't finish until 9pm, with breaks only to get up and walk around, use the bathroom, make food for myself and the kids, etc. I ate in front of my computer so that I could keep working. My poor kids are so neglected right now and I hate it. A couple more long days though and I will be through (no more as long as yesterday though!). I'll be "back to work" in February and I already have people begging for bookings. I hope this break will rejuvenate me!

Are you still working? Yup. Just picked up a new assignment. (Yay, baby gets a car seat! )

Did you take maternity leave yet? I work for myself, mostly at home, so there really is no such thing for me.

Are you planning on going back to work or staying home full time? I am planning on taking February off from work entirely while I figure out this whole motherhood thing. And then gradually get back to working. Again, working for myself from home makes this a little easier to coordinate.

I work until I go into labor. I am a contractor so I don't get maternity leave but I am taking unpaid time off for a few weeks except for one account that I will continue working through it all ( literally my husband will probably post for me the day after I give birth if I don't automate things to begin with ( I work in social media). So I will sort of be a stay at home mom working super limited till probably late feb early march where I will take back on my clients and have a good part time job. We'll see how it goes! The joys of being your own boss lol.

Are you still working? Yup, but just 1-2 days a week, and I can come and go as I please (remember, I'm a volunteer!)

Did you take maternity leave yet? No maternity leave officially, but I will probably take at least 12 weeks off from volunteering.

Are you planning on going back to work or staying home full time? Def a SAHM, but I will try and get back to work at least a day a month, even if only for a few hours to help out. The staff has joked that we're going to get Scooter a little red polo volunteer shirt so he can come with me!

Are you still working? yes And it really hurts walking around as much as I do at my job, but I want to spend as much time off with baby as possible so I try my hardest to endure this sciatic pain.

Did you take maternity leave yet? No, I have it scheduled to start Jan 14th thru the middle of April, but I don't think I'll make it many more weeks.

Are you planning on going back to work or staying home full time? Wish I could be a SAHM again, but it's not in my cards and I went through too much to put my RN degree on the total backburner. I just work 4 days a week so it's not like it's super bad. DH works opposite shift than me so at least one of us are with the kids at all times instead of a stranger.

Are you still working?yes, but I decided to make next friday my last day, DH also starts his vacation next friday and is taking a month off.

Did you take maternity leave yet? If I wanted I could mine has technically started 2 weeks ago but I only get 8 weeks and want to work as long as possible just in case LO decides coming late.

Are you planning on going back to work or staying home full time? I plan on going back to work but the thought of leaving a newborn with a stranger is a little nerve wracking. I want to look into having a live in nanny(au pair)

Are you still working? Yes my last day is next friday, the 21st and I can't wait. Working with toddlers is so hard especially almost 9 months pregnant so over it.

Did you take maternity leave yet? nope

Are you planning on going back to work or staying home full time? I prefer to be a SAHM, the thought of working full time in childcare and putting him in childcare doesn't work for me. Even if I'm able to keep him in the same center. I plan to stay home 6 months- 1 year God willing and afterwards I only plan to work part -time

I am active duty military, I have to work regular days until I am admitted to the hospital or if my doctor orders me to stay home due to some sort of complication. I'm having a very healthy pregnancy, so probably will work to the day of delivery. Good news is that we have don't have any full weeks left in December due to the holidays, so I have lots of 3 and 4 day weekends coming up.

I get six weeks off work, and then I have to go back :-(

It's all paid though, so that's good!

Are you still working? Sure am!

Did you take maternity leave yet? Won't take it until due date or later...I have a desk job. It's a generous company though -- I get 4 months off paid. This time, I may take 3 months off and then every Friday off for 5 months, we'll see.

Are you planning on going back to work or staying home full time? Definitely returning full time, same as after my first child. We have an amazing full time babysitter who's been with us for almost 3 years, and for me personally, I'm a better, more balanced mom because I (also) work outside the home.

Are you still working? Today is my last day. Augh, I can't wait.

Did you take maternity leave yet? I don't get paid for my leave, so I don't really say "maternity leave."

Are you planning on going back to work or staying home full time? I'm taking it one day at a time. I don't have to go back if I don't want to, but I would like to do something. With my career, freelancing projects are a dime a dozen, so if I don't go back to this job, I can find other work. I can't think much past having the girls right now.
