Success after IF

Going back to work

I cannot believe I go back to work next week. Next Thursday is my first day back. I took the full 12 weeks (I started 1 week before Baby I was born).

It makes me sad bc maternity leave has been so great. DH is home during the day and works evenings and nights, so we've all had some really great family time. I almost want to go for #3, just so I can have another maternity leave.

I'm so worried about the logistics of handling 2 kids and working and going back to pumping at work again... Ugh! It's a good thing I love my job and that I work at such a family friendly place or this would be really hard!

Re: Going back to work

  • Aw, I'm sorry your mat leave is drawing to a close. Your post made me smile though, DH was in school full time the semester after I had DS1 and it was really special that he was able to spend so much time with baby. (hugs)

  • :(  we never did that playdate!  The time went too fast.  

    And don't worry about the logistics.  Everything will get easier as you get settled into your new routine!  It's so nice your husband is able to be home with them.  Hopefully that puts your mind more at ease!  I'm sure it's tough though.  Enjoy this last week.

  • I know what you mean about the family time.  I loved my maternity leaves with my second, third and fourth just because it gave me a lot of time not just with the baby but with the older kids and also DH since he works an untraditional schedule.

    Having two and working is definitely an adjustment but you'll do great!  It's a team effort but with your husband being home that should really help you guys get into a good routine.

    Kelly, Mom to Christopher Shannon 9.27.06, Catherine Quinn 2.24.09, Trey Barton lost on 12.28.09, Therese Barton lost on 6.10.10, Joseph Sullivan 7.23.11, and our latest, Victoria Maren 11.15.12

    Secondary infertility success with IVF, then two losses, one at 14 weeks and one at 10 weeks, then success with IUI and then just pure, crazy luck.  Expecting our fifth in May as the result of a FET.
