    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

    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.
