My last day is this thursday!!! I'm so pumped! We had planned on moving this summer so planned according to that, but we probably won't move until sometime after the baby is born. Whatever the case, I will start our mat leave as soon as possible.

I will go back when school starts back up.. so I will work for a couple of weeks. I will try to work as long as I can so that way I can spend my time off after with her at home. I get 12 weeks with FMLA.

I'm probably going to work up until I'm due or possibly stop a week before.

Last time I worked literally up until the day I went to hospital, definitely not doing that again....but I want to maximize leave time with her, so I'm thinking of making Friday before the week of my induction (9/6) my last day, which should give me a few days off before she arrives. Right now I'm hoping to stay out with her until Feb 1.

If i have a scheduled induction again, I will likely take 1-2 days off before for "me time" while the kids are in school.

My goal is to work til I go into labor- I want all 12 weeks of leave to be with the baby, if possible. But, we'll see what happens toward the end!

My goal is to work until I go into labor. Since I don't plan on inducing, I don't want to take off a week before my due date only to have her be a week late. I'll only get 6 weeks paid (at 60% of normal pay). I can take another 6 with FMLA, but I don't know if we'll be able to make it that long without my paycheck. :/

I'm on summer break right now but I will go back for staff development Aug. 14-16. Then I will be off until my c-section, which right now is looking like Aug. 28.

I am also on summer break right now and because my due date is Sept 2nd with a planned C-section around 38 weeks (if I don't go into labour on my own first), I am just not going back to teach in the fall...so I am off now and its AWESOME!

Right up until I go into labor. No way I'm giving up time with the baby on the back end to wait on the front end!

All the way until I go into labor. Thats the plan. Today I was sitting at work feeling so out of breath and stuffed & uncomfortable after I ate lunch. I am only 28 weeks...I am really starting to get scared abt the third tri!
