Just wanted to see what other mums thought of my situation.
I am due back to work in 5 weeks. My daughter is 1 in 7 weeks. My current employer has said that I would have to take a demotion to return to work on part time hours? I know this isn't right as ACAS have advised me.
I have viewed a nursery that I absolutely love for my daughter and I know she will get on fine. My problem is, do I just bite my tongue and go back full time or do I fight for my part time hours?
Me and my husband have discussed trying for baby number 2 which would mean that if I concieved as quickly this time as I did with my daughter (4 weeks) I could receive more maternity pay and also have my daughter back at home with me.
I have always wanted both babies close together, but I guess now that it could be a realisty I am getting nervous about it. I am worried that I haven't spent enough time with my daughter as an only child.
Has anyone else had a similar situation? Or could offer advice on having baby number 2 so close to their first
