I'm 36 wks today!! I'm officially on leave tomorrow and should be excited. I was just wondering (from your own opinion not from what you've read) how long should you stay home after baby is born before deciding to return to work? I've decided that after a month and a half I'd try to go back as long as I'm well enough to do so. I'd figure that would be enough time to work the baby into atleast a semi decent schedule that his daddy wouldn't feel to worried/anxious about being home alone with him.
