I had no right to whine about not having paid maternity leave. DH and I have been very fortunate. I have excellent health benefits and have been lucky enough to save for this baby. We are in a good situation and I need to realize that.
Sweetie, don't feel bad at all! You have every right to whine. The lack of decent maternity leave in this country is downright awful. We should all be pissed to be honest. There are 3rd world countries who treat pregnant women better than the US.
Like the other ladies said, don't feel bad. Pregnant women and new mothers should get better benefits. I thought we were supposed to be the "best country" yet we can't pay women to raise their newborns? Oh well, hopefully some things, like healthcare, will change soon.
