hey ladies, goi a it stir crazy here, I finished work about 4 weeks ago now (I had 6 weeks holiday to use before maternity) and I'm 31 weeks and 5 days, and I've pretty much got everything sorted, nursery, clothes hospital bags, etc ive done it all, and now I'm like, what do I do now? All my friends work full time and so do my family and my fiancé works all sorts of shifts on the railway, so I'm on my own a lot. Everyone keeps saying I should make the most of it and enjoy the rest etc, which I totally get, but I'm not the kinda person who can just have a pj day, I like to so things and be productive! I think the ext course of action is research what we would be entitled too, I mean my partner has a fantastic job and earns a good wage but due to this I will get no support for childcare costs should I return to work full time, so I would be working to pay for the privilege of someone else looking after my child for no gain? Sorry if I'on rambling on here I'm just getting really fed up xx

Well we won't get any grants etc, because myself and my partner earn enough I. The eyes of this government! So I won't be able to go back to work whe. Ive had baby because I am not working 43.5 hours a week just to pay for child care it sucks! I've worked since I was 16 and don't know what I'm going to do with myself the prospect of not working scares the hell out of me! Yeah I'm he same i can't just sit and watch tv or films too it's pretty sucky but I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels like this xx

Same here - I don't go far in the car either about 2 weeks ago some young lad crashed into the side of my car so it's made very Wary! Another thing is if you just nip to the shops for something to do you always spend money don't you lol - ah I'm with you on the back ache this week I've started to get really bad lower Bach ache, so going for walks isnt enjoyable either, I'm thinking of doing daily to do lists, even if its just has silly little menial tasks on it just so it feels lime I've actually doNe something xx

This is exactly why I am doing the bonkers thing of finishing on the 8th August when our baby is due on the 10th
I would get driven insane!

Yeah I had to finish earlier than I wanted to because I was just so tired and mentally exhausted I kept making mistakes.
