    I took 10 weeks off after having Caleb. I just went back to work this week.

    With Liam, not long at all. I was back at not quite two weeks. I'm doing the SAHM thing now so I'm still technically "off"

    42 days is all the military would give me. It was sad.

    i think i had something like 10 weeks of unpaid leave. i had to start it before the baby was born because i was told by my OB to stop working about 4 weeks before i had him. i really hated having to take him to daycare and return to work but thankfully, they agreed to let me work part-time when i returned. then, after about 6 months, i went back to full-time once i was ready for it.
