Danielle, I am so sorry to hear what happen. If you need ANYTHING, you know we are all here for support!

 

Regarding time paid during maternity leave, my company doesn't pay during my leave, but in the state of CA I can get up to 12 weeks disability which pays only 55%-60% of what I currently make. So, that's better than nothing! I also read (not sure what it's called) but I can take up to 4 weeks off before the baby comes with full pay. I have to read more into it, but if I can do that I'm going to take full advantage of it.

I work on commission not salary so no maternity leave for me. I'm actually only taking a week off when the baby is born and then I will be continuing to work from home which should be really interesting.

Danielle, I am so so sorry. I have been through it as well and everybody handles things differently but if you ever want to talk I'm here for you.

Shea, how are things going with you? I went to the docs today. I am 50% effaced but not dilated at all yet. Sounds like we are doing about the same as far as progressing (or not progressing). My doc also said my cervix was very posterior and I think it has to move forward or something before birth. Maybe our babies will really be born on the same day!

I am about the same.... and I am still not sleeping at night and it is driving me crazy! I have an appt. tomorrow and am hoping to get some good news then! Friday is my last day at work, so I am really looking forward to that!

I have another question....

I posted this in another thread, but I guess it makes more sense here.

 

Are you ladies planning on getting waxed before you go into labor? I hear since we are ultra sensitive down there during this time that it hurts really bad. I don't know if it matters to the hospital or not- I think they used to shave the area, but read that they don't always now.

I know in the event I won't really care what it looks like, but I have been thinking about it.

I havent decided what I am going to do with this one. I am thinking of getting waxed now because Im doing the water arobics class and I m getting tired of shaving. With my first baby I shaved my self the hospital did nothing.

Waxing or shaving before labor?! This never even crossed my mindblush2.gif?! I'm glad you girls brought it up!

 

I have never waxed in my life and I don't think I want to try it either. However, I can't imagine shaving will be easy once I'm full term, so I'm not sure what I will be doing. One more thing to think about....

Danielle, I am so sorry...big hugs!

 

I am taking 12 weeks off and am using my vacation & sick time and short term disability. Our company offers no paid maternity leave.

 

As for the waxing...yes, I am definitely planning to get it done a few weeks before I'm due!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
