    I'm due to start work in 2 weeks. I work 3 days a week so not too bad. H will be looked after by both sets of grandparents through the week and they will give her everything she needs so no worries there. I love my job, I teach special needs children, and have missed them while I've been on maternity leave. I've done a few keeping in touch days and really enjoyed being back but am starting to feel a bit awful as people keep asking me how I'll cope and how horrid it must be to leave H and come back, but it was good to feel like me again if that makes sense. Anyone else looking forward to going back

    I am on my second maternity leave. I was lucky and had a year off last time. I went back 3 and half days a week. I was ready to go back and enjoyed working. I work long days and a couple of nights a week wouldnt see my daughter before she went to bed. It may sound awful but I rarely missed her. I enjoyed being her mum for half the week and working the other half. I also enjoyed being able to have a cup of coffee and go to the loo on peace! Our job is to be positive role models and whether that is as a working or stay at home mum. Whatever works best for our families. Weirdly though I am fine leaving my daughter at nursery but really struggle with the thought of not meeting her from school three days a week. Hopefully I won't feel so bad when the time comes!

    Doesn't sound bad to me! I love my time at home with Holly at the moment but think I need to get back to work to feel grown up for a little while too.
