Do you work? - Page 3
My real passion would be to be a master herbalist and holistic practitioner but I am currently working on that
Otherwise~ I am a wife, mother and first and foremost servant of God which are my most important jobs!!!
I just cut it down at the end of the summer. When we have the baby I think I am going to take off 6+ months after. With all my babies it was at least 6 months (2 other children) and then I will only go back the 1 day a week (HOPING)!!!
There are so many RNs in this DDC! I am an L&D RN, right now working full-time nights as a travel nurse. Have some ideas, have an interview at a birth center next week for .70 which would be an amazing position, but open to anything. Sometimes am panicked thinking about all the changes, especially since this LO was a surprise, but have a feeling that it was meant to be. Trying to let go and let it be.
Other RNs ... how is your work/life balance as a new mom? Have you worked while pregnant? Worked nights while pregnant? How soon did you go back? Were you able to pump at work? I am terrified of working close to FT, having crazy shifts and having my milk dry up postpartum. But I do love nursing and feel it will be very good for our family. Any tips?
I'm a Correctional Officer with the state. I work 40 hrs a week (sometimes more.) It's high stress and obviously not the most safe profession, but it is what it is. Part of me really wants to be a SAHM again. Part of me knows I'll probably go crazy if I do. And of course the logical part of me knows its not feasible for me to lose my income (I make more money than DH by almost $600 a month) Right now I'm just taking it one day at a time.
The hardest part is not getting enough time with my husband and kids all together. DH works Th-M 6am-2pm I work Sat-Wed 4pm-12a. We haven't had any time together since he started the job. Hopefully my paperwork for a days off change will go through and we'll both at least get two days a week together.
