I have lost my job in September that is why we decided to ttc. As long as you rely on another income you are always afriad that you wont make it so we took the plunge. I will stay at home until bubs starts school and I will try to get some certificates so that I can try and get qualified as a learning support assistant with children in schools. Great hours (cause they are the same as the childrens) and holidays.

I get a 3 month maternity leave then I can come back part time for the 4th month, after that we will need to find a day care. I really want to look at an in home daycare somewhere near my house or have someone come to my home and do it. My 3 year old is in preschool full time so shes already set to go but I might take her out during my maternity leave to save some money then next fall she will be starting kindergarten so that will be nice. Im getting so excited for the baby especially now that I know the gender, Ive been online browsing baby clothes and stuff all day at work

Wow, you guys don't get much

We get 15 weeks mat leave plus another 35 weeks of paternal leave which either of us can take. I'm totally taking it! I start mat leave on August 24 and I'm not scheduled to return to work until August 5, 2014.

OK I beat everybody in the worst maternity leave ever competition: 6 weeks! How horrible is that? Thankfully if I have the baby on or near my due date, that will be the first day of our 2 week Christmas vacation at school so it'll be closer to 8 weeks. School districts are totally stingy on the maternity leave, but I guess since like half the ladies at school always seem to be pregnant during any given school year, I can understand why they need to cut it short.

We sure do have it good for mat leave getting the entire year, but what kind of benefits does everyone receive? In Ontario we get 55% of our regular wages, or 80% if you are the sole provider and make less than a certain amount per year...means when I'm on mat leave I will be making just over our minimum wage...so it's doable

Yeah the 55% part sucks. I'm already trying to live off that and putting the rest into an account for when I'm off cause I'm sure we'll need it. I feel like I'm on that TV show Till Debt Do Us Part...

Beautiful pic, AnakeRose! That's not the Astoria bridge in the background, is it?

RE Maternity leave pay: I sort of want to move to Canada. The US only requires companies offer their employees time off, not pay. At the job I left, the only way to get pay is to use combined vacation/sick time, so if you ran out before baby was born, you were left with no maternal income.

Of course, now that I'm freelancing/content writing, I'm sort of in the no pay situation if I can't write after potential baby's born, anyway. Let's hear it for speech to text software! Hands free writing!
