I just went and freaked myself out. Yesterday I was discussing with my boss what the company is possibly going to offer in terms of paid maternity leave in addition to government funded paid leave. Today I thought I might attempt to do up a post baby budget based on what sort of income we might have while I am on maternity leave and have completely freaked myself out. I just want to cry now. By my calculations we will be at least $100 short a week and I can't see how to change this without taking less time off which I don't want to do. I was hoping to take at least 6 months but I can't see how we will be able to afford any more than 4 months off and then I hadn't intended on going back to work full time. Not sure how this is all going to work out. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! Stupid I know cause it is months away but I am a worrier and I like to be prepared for things. I had thought we were a little more prepared than this but it appears we aren't. Is anyone else worrying about this sort of thing??
