Well, my maternity leave will finish end of June 2013 and then I have two months paid vacation before I return to work full time. By then Finn will be one year and one month old.
I called human resources at my work yesterday to find out if I can change my leave. I have the option to take another two years off not paid (cannot do) or part time before returning full time.
I called the QPIP (the government office that pays maternity) and asked what would happen if I got pregnant if I would be working part time on this current maternity. They told me my benefits would go down. The agent then asked me why I would do that. She said if I got pregnant in 2013, I would still get paid and I would get another year maternity paid without having to return to work with my job guarantee. After my second maternity, I could take the additional two years part time and basically raise my children instead if work for that time. I would love to do this.
I need your help! How do I get my DP to be on board with this? He does want more children but not sure anymore if he wants to try again so soon.

Lol! In between Victoria and Hayden I went back to work 17 weeks pregnant for a short period of time... They told me I had to work 2000$ worth really to get my full benefits... I stayed till 30 weeks since I was due to pay my license for the year and it wasn't worth it since I'll be on mat leave for most of that year...
Or u get preggo before baby is 6 months old.
But that's great hubby is on board! Get off the pill woman and start reading 50 shades hehehehe
I know here I had to work 600 hours before making another claim but if that is how the benefits work there then I don't see why you shouldn't just go for it! I went back part time between my kids and am working part time now. That was what I thought was best for us. However your DH sounds on board so perhaps you should just go ahead with the babymaking
