I work as an administrative assistant - Part time (Mon, Wed, Fri)

If I do go back to work I think i get 8 weeks leave (only if i have a repeat C-section, otherwise 6 weeks) but since i am part time now I don't think I will get any pay for it!!!!

Really don't want to go back to work (mostly b/c I have many issues with my co-workers) but not sure if we can afford it or not - but the cost of daycare for 2 kids is just insane!!!! I am HOPING to be a SAHM come July!

Do you work outside the home or SAHM? Work outside the home as a cashier/cook

Working PT or FT? Part time

If so, how much materinty leave will you take? We are allowed about a year, but not sure if will take that long as it will only be about half of my wages while I'm off.

Do you plan on working outside the home after your Little one arrives? I probably will have to provided my family helps with care while at work (3 hours a day M-F) I would love to stay at home but unless I receive an unexpected windfall I wont be able too

Do you work outside the home or SAHM? Work.

Working PT or FT? FT and getting a PhD part-time.

If so, how much materinty leave will you take? We get 7 weeks paid. There is a policy that with managerial approval, we can take up to 6 months off (without pay). I would love to take 6 months off but not sure we can swing that financially. Will have to crunch the numbers with and without DD in daycare (or part-time) and perhaps gamble losing her spot.

Do you plan on working outside the home after your Little one arrives? Yes, after a break. I want to take the most time off I can since this will be our 2nd (and last baby).

I would consider it FT Biggrin

My husband and I have discussed it and I do not plan to return to work until our children are in school. If I get antsy then I may try to get a job where I used to work as a teacher PT. (It's a tutoring center that has a young readers program. It's like a half day preschool that is focused on teaching letters, sounds, etc.) That way our youngest can actually come to work with me.

Do you work outside the home or SAHM? I am a blogger so I work at home

Working PT or FT? full time

If so, how much materinty leave will you take? I will take a week off to get back into a grove with the kids

Do you plan on working outside the home after your Little one arrives? Nope I have been working as a blogger for almost 2 years now and my income I make there almost equals what I would make being a work outside the house mom and I still get to be with my kids and not have to send them to a daycare

Do you work outside the home or SAHM? This will be our first and I'm currently a teacher

Working PT or FT? FT

If so, how much maternity leave will you take? Since we're due in July and don't have school I have the option to take the first 12 weeks of school off (unpaid) once school starts back in August

Do you plan on working outside the home after your Little one arrives? We haven't decided. I would love to find something PT and close to home.

If so, how much materinty leave will you take? Job doesn't have a specific Maternity plan. I am going to have to use up all of my vacation and medical leave which should equal about five week. Still trying to work things out with work so we can keep benefits going.

I think I will have to (depends how my husband does after healing from his injury). Ideal would be work part-time, just enough to get out of the house. Do a night a week and a couple of evening when my husband gets home.
