Re: The importance of rest
I really wish our society was more accommodating to moms. I have had to cut my planned maternity leave 2 weeks short because I do not have enough saved time for a full 8 weeks of maternity leave. I happen to work in a state where paid maternity leave is not mandatory, and must use vacation, sick and personal time. Because of this, I also have to work until my due date (and you cannot imagine just how tired I am!).
