Post subject: HELP.. I have 19 week Baby Girl and 9 Week Pregnant.....
Hi, i have a 19 week old little girl and just found out i am about 9 weeks pregnant. OMG
I decided to take my full leave with 1st baby and my return to work date is 2nd Aug 2010 but i'm confused as my due date is 28th Aug 2010 and not sure what i need to do about work.
Has anyone else been in this situation?????
Do i have to go back to work?? can i take continues leave?? i have 28 days holidays for 2010 (Jan-Dec holiday period) should i end this maternity leave early and ask for immediate holiday then take immediate maternity leave???
I also want to make sure i get MA or SMP because at the moment i am getting MA for 1st baby as started a new job and wasn't employed during the quilfiing period but this time i'll be emp-loyed but unsure what happens.....
Anyone can you help??

Im in the same boat hun. SMP runs out this week the i am taking all my leave which takes me up to the end of Feb then i am going to start next maternity leave 1st March. As long as u dont take unpaid leave after your smp finishes u r entitled to the same benefits again. This is because u r still in paid employment whilst on smp. I would speak to your hr or wages dept about it x
