I'm so sad for all you mommas!
DH is taking 35 weeks paid paternity leave from the government, everbody can get it here. He also has the option of working 40% of his normal hours on top of that. IF he doesn't work we are short only about $200 a paycheck. But if he does He'll easily make about $400 more than usual giving us a chance to catch up on bills that we otherwise wouldn't be able to pay.
It's really sad here because alot of dad's don't take paternity leave, and even moms don't take their maternity(Yes they are different and both pay out to families, however I don't work so I don't get my maternity leave, they are both set up through our countries employment insurance). DH's work is trying to give him a really hard time and tell he that men around here don't do that, but DH is godd at telling them that's why their families are all grown and screwed up, because they are, lol.
I love my Dh and can't wait for this babe to come and for our time to start.
