Today marks a month since I returned to work from my maternity leave. I have to admit, It has been a pretty tough month. 🙉 I am exhausted!
It has been a rollercoaster of emotions from feeling separation anxiety the first weeks from my newborn baby, worrying about my milk supply decreasing because of not being able to pump often but, only once a day during my lunch break during work hours to having to wake up earlier so that I can breastfeed, pump, get my girls ready, get myself ready, be in a rush so that I can make it on time to work after being stuck in that morning traffic.
Fighting that feeling when you drop off your babies and driving away to make it to work.
Once at work trying to focus and give it your 100% and hope that your kids are doing good and that they are okay while you are trying to balance your professional career, be a good mom, a wife, and pretty much hoping not to lose yourself in the process, whomever that self is right now because I am slowly getting to know this new Jen mommy of 2 & honestly thanks to my hubby Andrey, I have not gone fully insane, without him, I think I would lose my shit! 🙊
Little by little I am adjusting to my new life but, I can't help to sometimes feel like I am dividing myself into so many pieces that I have no idea in all those pieces which one is the one that belongs to me.
