Cause im THAT broke... Single mom, 2 kids.. I am out of everything in my house... Toilet paper, dishwashing liquid, the necessities except food. No heat and its getting cold, except a lil heater/fan and gas is wayyy too high. So i went to work friday and my baby wont be 3 weeks til tomorrow. No, I dont feel good most the time. Im still hurting some. And im breast feeding but on call 12 hours a day, from 4 pm to 4am. So im hoping it works out. How soon did u go back to work, if u worked?

My Mommom went back when my dad was 2 weeks.
She was married. But for the same reason, they needed money!
I thankfully am a SAHM!
But don't stress. You are doing your best :)

I am extremely lucky my employer pays for ten weeks of leave at 60% and I utilize fmla and take 12, using savings and vacation to supplement.  With my first due to complications I was out 16 or 17 weeks but I was not medically cleared to return.  Earliest anyone I knew went back was five weeks after a c section.  I feel for you momma that is really early to go back
