Who has gone back to work?


Anyone going back tomorrow? Soon?


I go back tomorrow. That was a fast 6 weeks! I know I will cry the whole way to the office tomorrow and probably a week or so after. At least I will be doing some work for my old team, that makes me happy!


I will be pumping at work too. Right now I hand express because I have fissures on both nipples (ouch!) but they are healing up so hopefully I will be using the electric soon.

GL at work tomorrow! I never really had time off (work from home, my own business) but I never had to leave these kiddos, so I'm super fortunate for my career. I hope it's a good day and you make it through

Hope those nipples heal!

I am putting off getting ready. I need to leave here in 40 minutes and I am watching the baby sleep.

I should be able to do it, right? Shower, hair, dressed in 40 minutes? haha

I went back on January 6th after being off from November 9th due to preeclampsia issues, had James on nov 20th and I really wasn't ready. Luckily I get to face time my lil one at lunch time while I pump. First few days of pumping at work stunk, I was not going every three hours so supply was dropping now it's a lil better.

I started full time paramedic school the 14th. It's going well. Just 2 four hour classes a week.

IF I go back I am going at the beginning of March. I am going to start looking into the daycare situation to see what I can find this week. I have mixed feelings about it. Part of me really wants to work, and a lot of me doesn't. The problem is I carry the insurance and retirement since I work for the city. It's stressful to think about so I have been putting off having serious conversations with my boss and husband about it.

I've been putting off making a decision about work, too. Do I put DD1 in daycare so my mom can watch Laila? She can't handle both full time. Do I go down to part time? I discussed it with DH this morning and finally got up the nerve to talk to my office manager about possibly working from home two days a week so I don't have to go down to part time. Now I'm waiting for her to get back to me about it.
