@mighty_montgomery that kind of sounds like lightning crotch.
Well, it’s official. I’m only able to take 6 weeks of leave if I want to keep my job. Unfortunately, due to my health, two weeks of my leave will be before my due date. So if she comes late... I could have only 3 weeks with her. I can’t even imagine. I just can’t get over it. I know I’m not the only one, I know it’s a very VERY common struggle, but it just hurts my heart and no one seems to understand. I’ve tried to be optimistic, but people keep saying it’s “not that bad”. Particularly moms I know who never even went back to work after their babies were born. I can’t think about anything else. I feel like all of my motivation and joy has been sucked out of me today. I hope I can go back to being positive about this soon, but I just don’t know.
