I had short maternity leaves, too. I went back after 3 weeks with my first. It was rough, but I told myself positive affirmations every morning to remind myself why I do what I do. It did help! And, of course, checking in as often as I could. Picture messages are a thing of beauty!

It's not easy. I constantly reminded myself that I was doing it to provide for the baby.
