It’s been over a months since I’ve returned to work after maternity leave. I never thought going back to work would be as difficult as it has been. Before having my little guy I expected to walk back into the office as the firecracker that I was pre-babe. After having him I discovered how profoundly unrealistic that was. Expecting to walk into the office the same person I was when I left is the professional equivalent of expecting to wear my favorite pre-pregnancy pants out of the hospital. Ain’t gonna happen.
Today I’m 36 weeks pregnant which leave exactly one month until our newest family member is expected to arrive. Over the last several months there have been many changes in life and my body. This past weekend of pampering and perspective is exactly what I needed to prepare for my final month of pregnancy.
