I'm scheduled to stop working at 39 weeks but have already reduced to part time at 28 weeks. I'll be completely off for 8 weeks then return to part time.

I started my maternity leave the second I found out I was pregnant.

I plan to work right up to day baby is born i think.  I worked until noon the day my daughter was born!   I live in Canada so i get 1 year partially paid leave but i want to spend that time with the baby.  This may change as i might decide to have some quality time with my first born before we have the new baby! But i also dont want to be waiting around for baby!

I am not starting mine until my baby comes.  I want to be able to take the whole 12 weeks off with baby.  With my first, I started it the day before my scheduled c-section. Plus this way my baby won't stay daycare till 12 weeks old.
