I was forced to stop working 5 months ago because I was so ill during my pregnancy, I gave birth to Hayden 2 and a half weeks ago now. I always loved working and always said I would go back to work as soon as I was ready, because my fiance gets paid a pension through the army because he injured his back a few years ago. So I'm lucky because he will be at home to look after Hayden every day. He does some casual work with sports coaching for an hour a couple of days a week, so when I go back to work he will just ask one of our mums to come over to our place to watch Hayden for that hour, rather than going through the hassle of packing everything he needs and taking him to someone's house.
Even though it's only been a couple of weeks, I've started looking for work (more so because of financial issues), and I've got 2 interviews lined up - one tomorrow and one next week. It's a bit nerve racking and I feel a bit sad about not getting to spend as much time at home with Hayden, but I want to be able to give him (and me and my fiance) the best of everything, so in order to do that I guess I have to be out there working!!
What kind of work are you looking for? I worked in recruitment before I fell pregnant, and the 2 interviews I'm going to are to get back into recruitment, so if you have any questions, or if there's anything I can do to help or any advice I can give you, just let me know. Good luck with the job hunting!!
