Ok, here's my dilemma... I started a new job in November and found out I was pregnant like 3 days before I started. I told my boss already and she was fine about. I don't qualify for paid time off or FMLA until I've been here a year, not ideal but not the end of the world since I don't want to go back to work after the baby is born anyway. I don't make a whole lot of money and to stay at work and put the baby in day care would eat up almost my whole paycheck. Plus this job is stressful and sucky and I've always wanted to stay home when we started a family. So I don't want to come back after the birth. How do I tell my boss I'm not coming back? I don't want to tell her too early because then I may lose my insurance before the baby is born but I don't want to be a jerk and leave everyone high and dry when I'm gone. I really want to give them as much time as I can so they are prepared without screwing myself in the process.
What would you do?
