Hi all!! I'm new to this forum...I just had my daughter 3 months ago. Her name is Athena and she's everything to me. I also went back to work a month after her birth. Honestly, I hate being back to work. It drove me crazy not working because we've been struggling, but I feel so lost everyday without my daughter next to me. Not only that, but my husband lost his job when I started back to work, so now we're still struggling like mad AND I have to leave my daughter 6 days every week for 5-8 hrs. I'm so unhappy with it and I feel like it's never going to get any better.

It will get better. I remember thinking the same thing with my first and even more so with my second. It gets better and now I like having the break from them. I think it makes me enjoy the time I have with them more. It will get better. Hang in there.

Welcome. I will also say that it does get better. It's hard to believe, and I (like you) would still give up my full time job in a heart beat to stay home with her...but in the long run it's the better choice for all of us.

So welcome, and feel free to vent away. Some very understanding ladies on this board. Hang in there!

Welcome to the board.

It will get better with time.. just know that you are working to help support her and give her what she needs.
