At my firm we have some paperwork that you fill out using the baby’s due date, have supervisor sign off on the estimated dates of leave and then HR trues it all up for you after baby is born. I didn’t take any time before labor because I felt good and you need a doctors note but I understand most doctors will give you the note if you ask.

Thank you for your kindness. I am permanently working from home right now, so that won't be a problem 😊 It's a blessing honestly

Make sure you have a transition plan early! Due dates are estimates. In my circle 4/5 of my friends had their babies between 37-39 weeks.
