How to deal... Working mom whine

Today was my first day back to work. I've been an emotional wreck. I can't get out of my head that every day since DD was born, I have been the first face she has seen when she gets up in the morning. Every morning, she has woken up to me saying "Hey mama's girl, good morning" ... and today I wasn't there to do that. I feel like I'm disappointing her, or letting her down, or not being there for her. Going back to work was the hardest thing I've ever done. Please tell me it gets easier. I can't imagine doing this every day. Crying

    I've heard it gets easier. I'm not back to work yet but I hate the thought of it. I'm going to be an emotional wreck. Hugs for you.

  • Today was my first day back too. :( It was SO hard. I cried on and off an felt like I was in a fog all day long. Everyone keeps saying it gets easier. I just keep telling myself over and over that it will get a little easier every day. Hang in there! I ho

  • It does get easier. I'm two weeks in. I totally get it and you def aren't alone. I cried a little less every day. I do drive like a bat out of hell going to get her though, can't wait!
  • I don't go back till April 8th... Each day brings it closer and makes the pit in my stomach bigger! Since she was born I have probably spent maybe 10 hours without her! She'll be with DH every morning till he goes to work for noon and either with my aunt

    I went back at 6 weeks : it sucks at first, but gets a little better. People say how great it is to see them smile when you pick then up/get home but I'm still in the place of 'I'd rather just be at home still.' Hope it gets easier for you quickly.

  • It gets way better. Give the worst phase about two weeks. Then you will find a new routine and eventually it will all seem normal again. I promise!

  • My first day back was this past Monday, and I was the same way. I was an emotional wreck for weeks before I went back and then the day before, and then the morning of. And then I got back to work, and they had saved up so much for me to do and dumped a bu

  • It gets easier, but there are still some tough days.  I've been back to work for about a month now so I was kind of used to it then yesterday I left him when he was awake.  Usually he falls asleep in the day and I say goodbye to his adorable sle
