Early to starting thinking about it, but how many of you are taking leave and for how long?

I actually just quit my job a month ago but with DS I took all 12 weeks allowed (well 16 but I burned through 4 on bedrest at the end).

I'm a little on the fence about it right now. If this bun stays in until it's supposed to, I'll really only need to take a month of leave (which I could hopefully get mostly paid with my PTO) since it would be at the end of the school year. Then I could have all summer to bond with bun.
I guess if I really wanted to, I could take the rest of my leave when the school year starts back up. So it could give me extra time to adjust. And since SO gets paternity leave (so awesome!!), we could end up not having to worry about childcare issues for almost 8 or 9 months.

With both of my boys I took the full 12 weeks--I'm sure I will again this time too! My husband is a teacher and he'll be done about three weeks after baby is born if all goes well!

I have to give work at least 10 weeks notice to when I plan on leaving so that they can get the paid maternity paperwork in. I plan on taking the 16 weeks paid, then whatever leave I have accrued by then. I can take up to two years unpaid and still have my job at the end. I would like to stay at home until the baby is 15 months old but we will see how finances go.

When I worked before my first one, I only worked part time so I didn't get leave. But I had planned on quitting anyway. No maternity leave for a SAHM! I'm still trying to wrap my mind around having two to take care of...my son is a handful!
