Pfft peedy screw them. You've got the benefit of being able to leave early as well as have extended leave afterwards. You'd be crazy NOT to take that opportunity!!
I'm working up until 36w and I'll potentially be having the baby at 37w lol but it's diff for me cos with hubby away I don't really benefit from the time off; I don't want to spend all day every day home alone.
Honestly I'm okay with going back - one day a week will be okay and could be a nice break. But if I could take more time off I totally would. I would love to be a long term SAHM. Shame my bank account disagrees lol.
