When does everyone return to work? Are you nervous? Excited? Any concerns with returning to work? If you are already back to work how is it going?

I go back on Monday and I'm so upset. I really enjoyed being a stay at home mommy these past couple of months. She's still so little! It doesn't seem fair-- I can't believe how fast the time flew by!!! I have no choice but to go back full time, which leaves me away from home at least 12 hours a day with the commute. I feel like such a whiner and I'm sure I sound like one lol. I had a hard time with the other two but since I know she is my last, this time it's the hardest!! Good luck to everyone else that is going back!! I can't wait to see how everyone else is doing.

I go back February 1 st. I can not believe how fast that is approaching. I am excited to see my friends and get back to work, but do wish I was going back part time not full time. I have pump breaks, but they are 15 minutes between back to back patients. LO is still up 1-2 times at night so I am nervous I will be exhausted.

I was supposed to return on 1/10, but due to severe anemia I don't go back until January 30th. I'm nervous because Aubrey and I still aren't on a good schedule, she is extremely colicky, and we are both battling a thrush infection so I've been pumping for the last few days and bottle feeding. Also not sure how long I'll be able to bf because I have to leave the house by 6:00 and I don't have my prep period until 11:15.
Other than my concerns I am also a little excited to go back because I do love teaching and miss it. I do wish I could stay home longer though. After being off work since June I have gotten used to being a sahm and have really enjoyed it.
