No Maternity Leave? Really?
Really? I thought it was like a law or something! I thought that everyone got 6 paid weeks off for Maternity! I guess I was wrong. I learned that if I do take time off, I have to apply for a Family Medical Leave of Absence...which, of course, is unpaid time off. To beat all of that, if I take the unpaid leave, I have to pay for my own health insurance during that time! Wow! I can't believe this!!
If I use up all of my sick days, that will mean that I won't have any left to take off days if the baby gets sick or needs to go to the doctor for appointments, either!
At least I have a little while to figure out what we are going to do. I'm really glad that I'm due at the end of the school year!
