Is anyone else cutting back on expenses now and saving up some money for that time?

I think my leave can be extended to six months since I'm due towards the end of the school year and summer break would be starting up (talk about good timing!). Then after I return to work, SO is going to take his paternity leave which will be between six and twelve weeks. We're trying to save up a nice chunk so we're not entirely living off of just one income. It would be doable, but very trying, and who wants stress like that? And for almost nine months. Whoa.
Hopefully this savings will help pay for any additional things on the registry, too.

This is probably the first time I've really been serious about saving up some money. Good to know I'm kind of good at it.

We have started cutting back and I've picked up about 20 hours a week at my 2nd job. I figure I'll work the 60 hours a week while I can to save money for when I have to be out of work.
