    Default Does anyone else feel excluded?

    They are used to working without you. They had to do "your" work while you were gone for three months. You get "special treatment" (a 36 hr work week - with commensurate dip in pay and benefits). You cant go out to get coffee or lunch because you have to spend all that time pumping. etc etc. I am the only one who has given birth within the last 26 yrs in my work group if that makes a difference.

    I feel like I am in middle school right now and I am sure it is because, I am not getting enough sleep stressing over doing the right thing for and getting enough time with my LO, stressing over doing a good job at work etc. But there is still a part of me that feels excluded.

    Am I alone or is this common with working mamas?

    • my surprise baby: the one and only D-Man born 3 weeks late (5/5/08) at 9 lbs 14 oz and 21.5 inches, and
    • the shock H-Girl born about a week late (10/7/09) at 8lbs 15oz and 20.75 inches.

    If I am here I am covered in baby (probably two) and fighting for control of the keyboard.

    Family beds are awesome

    Wondering if you have PPD? Take the screening and see your doctor. You deserve to feel better.
