Wow! Thats alot of changes but each one will bring lots of happiness. I am starting my student teaching this semester and getting married in May, so I will be in a similar boat as you but hopefully no baby yet! Haha. Congrats and good luck!

I’m not sure how it works in the states since I’m from Canada, but just wanted to say congrats and good luck!  My first year of teaching was exhausting so I hope you can take some “you” time to stay healthy and happy!

@AmandaN618: Oh that’s wonderful that you’re in a good school and that you haven’t had any bad symptoms!  Ugh, IEP meetings….thankfully they’re not weekly, eh?  Haha.  Here’s hoping the rest of your pregnancy is just as stress-free!  Take care of yourself. 🙂

@AmandaN618: FMLA works the same across professions/states as it is a Federal regulation. Any state mandated leave categories may be different. With the FMLA, since you are a teacher I would asume that you are on whats considered 18/26 (18 active pays and 8 summer break pays) or 9/12 (9 active months out of 12) you should be fine during the summer months since you’re off anyway and should not have to use it (even though you are eligible in July). However, your FMLA should begin effective the first day of school (Aug 20th, 2012). At which point you would be eligible to take 12 weeks of unpaid job protected leave via FMLA. From the sounds of it though, you are required to use 3 weeks of vacation which will run concurrently with the FMLA (3 weeks paid via vacation time and 9 weeks with no pay. ) It can be a lot to decipher so feel free to inbox me if you have any other questions. I am an HR professional (10+ years) so regulatory compliance questions like these are the bane of my existence 🙂 I wish you a happy and healthy pregnancy and baby.

@Soon2BMrsP818:  ahh Thank you for typing that.  You saved me from doing it.  I deal with FMLA all too often. 🙂
