Question for STMs and ladies who have already gone on leave:
I'm a high school teacher and had originally planned on working until just over a week before my due date (the week before thanksgiving). I just found out today that I am eligible for up to four weeks of leave before baby comes through state disability insurance at 55% pay. I'm not just trying to take leave I don't need, my job needs me and I want to be there, but I'm definitely starting to get tired.
I'm wondering how long before their due dates other mamas were uncomfortable enough to start their leave, assuming they indented to work as long as possible?
