Have you started looking into Maternity leave?

You should talk to HR about how long you can take off, is it paid or unpaid, are you able to use shortterm disability?

Also talk to your dr about when you should start I know for me I've had jobs that would let me work to my dd and others there would have been no way.

I think I will have about 25 days paid time off (accrued sick time and personal time) and then I can borrow up to 12 days from our sick bank (I'll have to pay back 8 next year). Because of he Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, I should be okay to not go back until after our Christmas break. So I'll get about 8 weeks. This will only work if I can work until my due date. With DS I had to stop working about 3 weeks before he was born. So I am hoping that I can work to the due date with this one.

I have vacation saved up and i also have short term disability which i think pays for 12 weeks but it doesnt start for 3 weeks so thats when the vacation time will come in. I work 28 hours over the weekends, cut down from 32 and I'm realizing I jus can't do it much longer. Im hoping my Dr will let me take leave at 6 months and use my Short term.

I am having a scheduled c-section so I can get 8 weeks of disabilty plus 2-3 weeks of vaction/sick time and with the holidays in the middle I should be able to take about 12 weeks paid. My DH and I are saving a little extra ever month so maybe I stay home, unpaid, for a few weeks more. I have only worked 30 hr per week since my DD was born and maybe I can cut back to 25ish after this one.

I'll have 34 sick days plus thanksgiving and Christmas break. I'm really hoping I can work for as long as possible to my due date so I can spend that time with baby. I plan to take at least 8-9 weeks after the baby is born even if a week or so has to be unpaid.
