Yay for a due date! Woah, I would never go back to work that quick so I don't know. That is totally your choice. I don't think you will really know how you feel until you have your baby.

I tried to plan it to be due in April so it would be the end of the school year, I got pregnant and had a loss. So now I am due June 21st and I plan to take a maternity leave in the beginning of the school year. I stayed home 3 months with DD and then went back for a month and then had summer break. I want to have the same amount of time with the next baby. I don't want to lose a maternity leave just because I am due in the summer. I finally threw away the idea of planning (the last thing I want to do is be out in the beginning of the school year) but after my loss I looked at it much differently. It is one year of my life that I will not be there in the beginning of the year, the kids will survive and it is more worth it for me to have that time with baby that I can never get back.
