Re: Am I setting myself up for failure??
If you are planning on going back to work after only a couple weeks I would take the semester off. A new baby, no sleep, ect takes alot more out of you than you realize. I wasn't prepared for that after DS1 was born. There is no way I would have been ready to go back to just work with a 2 week old. 7 weeks was barely enough.
you might want to wait until your LO is born and you see how you are feeling before saying you will be back to work after 2 weeks.
good luck with whatever you decide
wife and mom-- no other special labels. Just trying to do the best I can.
