    Hi!
    Well m gutted, we can no longer afford for me to be off on maternity, so tommorrow i am going back to work 2 days per week. Simon will be at home with Charlie, so he's excited!
    I am really dreading it, and cant stand the thought of not being there to comfort her when she cries, but its essential i go back, as mine was the main wage. Atleast Charlie gets to spend time wth daddy.
    I will be expressing milk at work, and ill still feed her when im at home. She cant have formula it makes her sick, so i hope my milk stays and we have no probs.
