I apologize if there is already a thread for this topic, I wasn't able to find it. When is everyone thinking of taking maternity leave? I'm currently 28wks 5days high risk with twins and honestly don't know how much longer I can keep this up. Granted, I have a "desk job" but having to be up at 4:30 every morning, commuting an hour each way, then caring for my family when I get home I'm exhausted. Not to mention the body aches and lack of sleep. My HR department isnt the greatest when it comes to answering questions about FMLA and STD, so I'm debating when I should stop torturing myself. LOL. I want as much time afterward with my girls, but cant afford to go unpaid. What is everyone else's plan?
