This has been on mind the entire week. It will be really difficult. I was supposed to go back at the end of October.... I don't know how I'm going to go through this. I keep telling myself that it will be difficult only the first day and then it will go back to normal, but still. It makes me sick to my stomach to think about my coworkers' reactions to me coming back so early.... Most people know what happened since my boss handled that for me. But I'm sure they will be asking, looking/staring at me, talking behind my back. I wish it was all a dream....

I found it very difficult to go back to work.
The first couple of days were really difficult, but I made it through the days.
Just take it one day at a time. Most ppl are understanding

Thank you so much for the awesome siggie Claire
Our joys will be greater
Our love will be deeper
Our lives will be fuller
Because we shared your moment

I'm a temp.
My first assignment after Avery was working at Texas Children's Hospital.
To this day, I don't know how I did it...I'm stronger than I give myself credit!!!

This isn't going to be fun...but it is necessary to the road back to "normal".

I know you've seen it so many times before, but I do have to say again:
The first year is definitely the hardest!!!!

But, we're here for you and with you. Never, ever doubt that!!!!

Hugs to you sweetie!

I went back to work a week after Ethan was born because my family thought it would be "good for me" (it's a family business). It wasn't. I cried a lot for awhile. I wondered what my coworkers would say and how I would handle it. In the end, nobody said anything. It got a little easier everyday I think.

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!

I went back to work 3 weeks after Colm was born because my command thought it would be good for me.

It was so hard. But, I found that the days leading up to it were worse than actually being there. I handled it okay.
