Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I say hang in there if you can.  3 months is a lot to be off before baby gets here and then it's usually 8 weeks leave after baby arrives, so you are talking about being out of work for 5 months.  See if your long days can be cut a little shorter if your short days can be made longer...maybe.  I don't know if that will work for you.  I'm 31 weeks today and I get what you mean about being tired.  I've already got a 3 yr old and a 5 year old.  I try to get up by 5:45 every morning, then drop the kids off, work until 5pm, pick the kids up and hope to be home by 6pm.  Then it's homework, dinner, clean up, maybe laundry or get ready for the next day.  I don't usually hit the pillow until 10:45 or 11pm.  Nevermind that the rest of my house is a d-i-s-a-s-t-e-r area because there's no time for that!  lol!  I'd like to say it gets better, but you can see from the above parents live a hectic life.  If you can afford to take the time then it wouldn't hurt to be rested up, but I would still wait a bit longer.  :)
