Have you started the HR paperwork for your maternity leave? What are your plans? Full 12 weeks? More? Are you using up vacation and sick time?
I took 12 weeks the first go-round, through short-term disability and FMLA. I got paid half of that time, if I remember correctly.
For this baby I might take 10 weeks at the outset, then go back to work and save 2 weeks for later in the summer (my baby's due in February). I think you can do that with FMLA - take the time, up to 12 weeks, any time in the first year after birth/adoption.
Just curious about everyone's preparation.
