A strange panic has been stalking me for weeks...lurking in the back of my mind ready to lunge at me when I least expect it.
I only have a couple of months maternity leave left....
It's not a case of being ready to go back to work or not...I simply don't know if I could go for even an hour without my baby. The more I contemplate it the worse I feel.
I absolutely adore the wee man, he is my bestest friend in the whole world and we're a team. I can't spend every minute of every day with him and then just abandon him with strangers. What if I missed his first words? What if he missed me?
It's going to be a tough transition and one that I'm not looking forward to but I have to put it out of my mind or I'll waste away my days with worrying.
Do you regret going back / not going back to work? What would you have done differently?
