Happy Wednesday!

It might be a little early, but have you decided (if you currently work) if you're a) going back to work after the baby? b) how far up to your due date you plan on working?

I work full-time now, but I will not be returning to work after the baby comes. I was planning on stopping working sometime in Nov (maybe 37/38 weeks), but I don't know yet.

I will be going back to work. I work full time right now and will return full time. I'm planning on working as long as I can. Last time I was pulled at 25 weeks because of the amount of pain I was in.

I will be forced to go back to work and will not get any maternity leave. My boss is very demanding for being so young. Toddlers.

I'm working as long as I can. I plan on coming back but hopefully only part time or working remotely If I can. I want to be with my little one as much as possible.

As of right now, the plan is that I will be a SAHM. However, if I do go back to work, I will be getting a new job as the one I have now has no scheduled end time and it is expected I will work 50-60 hours a week. Plus DH is on call 24/6. So, it won't work well with us both having unpredictable work schedules.

I'm probably going to stop work about 2-4 weeks before my due date, depending on finances and of course how I feel

I don't even want to think about telling my work, they are going to kill me But i have to do it sooner than later as I have a high rist of having to be on bed rest second half of the pregnancy.I am lucky here in Canada we get 52 weeks paid maternity leave. Its not full pay but still helps when you stay at home.

I work full-time and plan to go back to work after having the baby. I'm not sure how soon before the baby's born when I'll take off work, it just depends on how the pregnancy goes. I plan to work as long as I can but my job can be challenging at times and I'm afraid at some point I'm not going to be able to do my job.

I teach and I will go back though I may ask for a leave of absence for the second semester instead of just taking a quarter off. I will plan to work up until my due date or maybe the week before since my dd was a week early.

I will definitely go back to work, but will take 12 weeks maternity/STD leave. I am blessed to have a plan that pays 70% of my income while out. I will work as long as I can....

MashaMommy - Not sure after 52 weeks I would be able to go back

Since I'm in Canada I get 52 weeks of maternity leave. I don't know what I will do after that. I'll probably work up until a week before date.

yeah, LOL it's one of the perks of high taxes! It is great. I feel bad for women in the states who get almost no time at all.
however, employers are fully aware that if they hire a women of child bearing age, she may take an entire year off here and there! so imagine being an employer interviewing a 30yr old man and a 30yr old women with the same qualifications... if you think the woman might have a baby a year from now and go on maternity leave, you don't want to be bothered with that woman, you'll hire the man. So as wonderful as the 1 year maternity leave is, I think it can hinder career-minded women.
