    That was me last week! I was definitely "that crazy lady" at daycare the first day, crying like a little kid! Make sure to drink enough water and relax by looking at a magazine or something while you're pumping and you'll be fine!

    The first day back is so hard, heck the first 4 months back for me were awful! I think I had finally stopped crying on the drive between the daycare center and work by then.

    While it does get more manageable, at 1 year now my heart still sinks when I'm out the door for work. I'm lucky I know in that my LO is home with Dad almost all week.

    I know how it is, and I'm offering you lots of hugs and sympathy. Going back to work was so much more emotionally painful than I could ever have imagined. A supportive DH helps, just last week I was sad about having to work (long story) and my husband told me all fo the good things I do for our family, it made me feel appreciated and not like a horrible mom.

    My first day back to work I pretty much cried the whole day long. It was awful! Like pp said-be sure to drink lots of water and relax when pumping. It does get a little easier as time goes by!
