I can't believe it's been over a week since my little man was born.

Oh, Kate! I'm so sorry you had to go through those "bumps in the road" in the beggining. I would be so angry about the mat. leave!!!

I hope the baby blues stay mild and go away soon. A good cry helped me sometimes, also helped writing in a diary about my feelings, going outside and talking to other people, including the boards.

((hugs!!))

Hi!! Thanks for updating us. I'm so glad to hear that breastfeeding is going well after a tough start. Good luck with the baby blues. Cuddle those two sweet boys of yours and get some of those happy hormones flowing :)

I'm so sorry for all these unforeseeable complications, but so glad Theodore is home now and doing so well. He is so handsome-I especially like the photo of him with his big brother! I hope that your job can work something out-if it's in the handbook, how can they not give you the whole 12 weeks!?!

Kate - Thanks for the update. Glad he is doing better and you guys are getting settled at home. How frustrating with all the doctors visits and being in the hospital so soon after leaving. But like I said glad you are all better!

As for the work situation! Sucky!!! That should have been in the handbook, if it wasn't I would say they should have to pay you. I feel your pain. while I was out on Maternity leave (we had the 60% pay for 6 weeks, while the first week was PTO) and I paid extra to get that bumped up to 80% and I banked all the PTO I could so that after my 6 weeks was up I could take another 3 to 4 weeks. Well then I found out when my 3 weeks was almost up and I went back part time, that the previous 3 weeks was not paid because I didn't fill out one single form. really? I mean seriously, one form....so needless to say had I know about that I could have made sure to fill it out. and shouldn't the HR Person have known to ask me about it? what's the point of having someone in HR help you with that. Just like your person in HR should have actually looked up the policy.


I am sure it will all get worked out, but I can see how emotional it would be (I was there). HUGS!!!

Theodore is ADORABLE!!! and Ray looks so proud! Are you going to call him Teddy as a NN?

Congrats again Kate! He's cute! And I think he and Ray look alike! I'm sorry about all the mat leave issues, that is really crappy that they would misrepresent it in the handbook - I hope it gets figured out for you.

The baby blues are so normal, I definitely got them when we got home from the hospital. I felt like a new woman on Day 12, so hopefully it passes for you quickly. Hang in there, we all know how you are feeling!!

Enjoy that sweet little man!

Hugs Kate! Sorry you are feeling the blues but the other factors I'm sure are at play! :-( The pictures are great. I think the second one he really looks like you! Ray looks so proud too! Hope things continue to get better for you all!
