I am depressed about returning to work after having baby.

I will be returning to work on Monday after delivering my baby on May 16. I am sooo depressed because I work 48 hours a week. (3pm-11pm) I feel like I am going to miss so many important events in his life. I have always returned to the workforce a year after having my other two so this is the first time I will be leaving my child at a daycare. Any comforting words can help.

  • Just take it one day at a time. It is so hard to go back to work. I just focused on staying busy at work. I found if I focused on being miserable it made it worse. Just think that you are being a strong mom and doing what is best for your family, you are sacrificing and it will pay off in the long run. Treasure the moments you have and take a lot of pictures. I put pictures around my office too!

  • Oh I am so sorry! I know how hard it is. I cried every day I had to leave my baby until I found something I could do from home. Right now I am tutoring college students for a state online college and between that income and the savings I have from not having to pay for daycare, it has replaced my income. Maybe you could find something real to do from home.

  • There are many work at home businesses. I have one. Maybe you can get one started while you are working? Then perhaps you won't have to be at your job as long as you intended once you grow your at home job. I am so sorry for the pain you are feeling girlie. I know it must be so hard. I used to have to work part time when I had babies and it is heart breaking. If you are interested in checking mine out roam my CM page. Best of wishes to you and your family.

I am also a mom so I know it has to be hard, but you can change that....maybe not right away, but keep researching online things and if you have questions about certain things and how they work, let me know and if I can answer, I will, if not, I can get an answer for you =)
