Hey guys! I am currently in the process of IVF using a surrogate. Transfer will be in the next couple months ( eeeek! ) Anyways I will be able to use 12 weeks of FMLA after the baby is born. My work does not offer paid FMLA, I will have to use PTO. I have only been with this company for 6 months and PTO builds very slowly here. If I save all of my PTO until the child is born, I will have almost three weeks of paid leave. I was really hoping there was some insurance I could purchase that would pay during FMLA leave, but I don't believe anything like that exists.
Anyone have this problem before? and what did you do? ( I can not use short term disability since I am not the one giving birth.)
