As of August 12 I am off work for a year!!!
DH got a job that starts August 15th so I am taking advantage of some relax time
What time is everybody else leaving work?
With all my pregancies I have worked until delivery day and actually with #1 I when into labor at work! I hope to work until delivery day this time too. I am also hoping that I will be able to take 12 wks off, but that is totally up in then air at this point.
Lucky you! i am SO SO jealous! i would LOVE a year off to take care of Kendra. i plan on working right up to the end. actually, if i go full term, i will probably start maternity the friday prior. i am yet to work out the details with HR, but i am going to ask for 8 weeks off. that would leave me with only 3 weeks unpaid. Luckily, we saved up for it!
I'm so jealous! I would love a year off to take care of Thalia. I can only take off from when my mw puts me on disability because I don't qualify for maternity. Free of any complication I may work up until delivery day and will only have off for six weeks

My September '11 Space
I'm going to try to work as close to my due date as possible. I would like some time with H before going off, but its a really busy time at work as we're starting new staff that month. I'm thinking about working till the 16th of September, due date is the 26th. I don't know we'll see. I am taking the whole year, so if I stay right to the end its purely to help with the workload.
That's it I am moving to Canada... I would love a year off. I plan on working up to my due date/ Csection date. I am taking 16 weeks off. 8 weeks paid and 8 weeks unpaid.
My leave is slated to start at 39 weeks (though I can pick up hours at the end if I haven't delivered yet). I will take 8 weeks. That's all the hours I have banked, and we can't afford for me to take any unpaid leave! (Max would be 12 weeks.)
I plan on working until my doctors thinks I should go off. If everything goes well and I make it to 37 weeks, I'll go off than. They'll be born before 38 weeks so a couple days off before they come would be perfect. And than I'm off till Sept 2012.
I'm working up to the day I can. Hopefully I can get a week or two in at the beginning of the school year to get the kids started. I would like to take off 12 weeks but I can only afford probably about 8. Honestly it would be great if he was born a few weeks early before schools starts then I won't have to miss as much.
