Oh I wish I could take a year off. That's so nice for you. I plan to work until I can't work anymore but I have a feeling I'll be part time for most if not all of May. I will go back to work when my older two are done with summer vacation the being of September.

I work part time anyway. 3 days at work 3 days at university. As a part timer i will get paid 90% of my usual pay for 9 months :) so no need to get back to work early.

Yep. My hubby will be picking up a part time job aside from his full time job to make up for me being off work. I live in Minnesota, United States.

It won't so bad because I work at a childcare and she'll be in my classroom until she's 6-8 months old and then she'll just be down the hall.

Over here we get a centerlink payment. Atm I'm getting around 350 Aussie dollars a fortnight and I've been getting that since my little one was born (he's now 17 months) and we also get an extra 300 a fortnight for the first six months after bub is born. They call it the baby bonus. Use to be a lump sum of 5000 but heaps of girls were getting pregnant just for rhe money. The amount you get is dependent on how much your partner is working. And I know if your a single mum you get A LOT more. It's still a struggle with the price of rent ect but I.love that I don't HAVE to go back to work. Mind you before i fell pregnant again I was doing some casual work for my own sanity. Lol :)
