So i am deciding when to take maternity leave. I think right up until i can't anymore but SO is saying January 1 because he's worried and wants me home. Even told my daughters daycare that she will not be coming back in January. So now im sort of in a pickle. Should i just take that time before baby and get ready and spend time with my almost 4 year old before baby comes? Or try to stay at work.
Ps. Money is not an issue. I don't have to be working i just wanted to
How much time do you get. I mean if you only get 6 weeks off and you leave 5 weeks before you're due it could be an issue. If you don't need to be working and would like some extra time with your daughter maybe take off around 38 weeks.
i mean if money isnt an issue and you have more then 6-8 weeks of leave i say stay take the leave. but if you only have 6 weeks i would wait. my sister in law saved up all her time (vacation and maternity) and then took her leave the day she went into labor. she got to stay home for almost 5 months with her son
