Returning to work and realizing that between the nearly 10 hours she is at daycare and driving to and from, I’m spending like 2-3 hours a day with my baby. Most of that is eating, taking a bath and getting ready for bed.. I’m feeling all the mom guilt for going back to work (not that we really had a choice since I’m the primary earner in our fam) on top of feeling like there is no way I’m going to succeed at work.. any advice or support on going back after your first mat leave? Im pretty down..

Advice/experiences please. About 5 weeks pregnant and feel like total trash... basically like I have a flu (but 99% sure I don’t, it’s just the pregnancy).

I also don’t want to tell my work what the “sickness” is. I just finished a project so no one is relying on me right this second. What would you do?
