Could you do something like work a couple of days a week instead of the whole week? This is probably where our situation is different. In each of my pregnancies, I ended up getting taken out of work except the last one where I didn't even try to work. Good thing too since I started having issues so early last pregnancy. The lesson I learned the hard way is that no matter how important I thought my obligations were, none of it mattered if I could avoid hospital bedrest and possible issues with the baby. The guilt is pretty intense when something goes wrong. I mean it's been almost 6 years and I still question some of the decisions I made with my first pregnancy.
As a result though, we do have a healthy supply of hospital bills that will probably take us another couple of years to pay off completely. Insurance only covers so much and I have very expensive pregnancies. It means we gave up things like vacation in the summer time and other stuff like that. IMO, totally worth it though.
