Just feeling down today, because I'd really love another baby, dh would like one too.
But here in Switzerland maternity leave is only 16 weeks and I don't think I could face going back so soon. With dd I didn't want to even think about going back until she was 9 months.

We can't move back to UK, and we need my salary.

Feeling cross.
Sorry just wanted to whinge.

I did 16 wks and to be honest,I think it may be better than leaving it longer-depending on childcare arrangements <<caveat emoticon>>
They are gorgeous but still pretty boring at that age and you are not really missing much <<convince yourself emoticon>>.
I know I would have found it tougher at say 9mts.
I feel for you but can't really suggest an alternative if you need the salary unless part time or job share is an option,which I guess it isn't.
