I am due to return to work (part time) in a couple of months. The closer the date is getting the more sick I feel and I am not sure why. Financially I really should be working I am not sure how we will manage. I drew up a list of pros and cons for going back to work and there was only pro for staying at home. But I have decided that I am not going back anyway, DH is very positive and says that I should follow my gut instinct and that we will find a way to manage.

I never in a million years thought that I would be making this decision but now I have I feel relieved and excited. Am I doing the right thing?

If that is your instinct then yes, absolutely. I'm due to go back p/t (hopefully) later this year but know in my heart ds would be better off with me at home for longer.
It's great that you have come to this decision. I really wish you well [smile[

I didn't want to go back either and applied for part time. I hated the thought of going back and was offered redundancy. I took it and don't regret my decision. I hope it works out for your too

Yes, Yes, and Yes, its quite obviously the right decision for you.

nothing is cast in stone anyway - you could always change your mind but you probably won't!

good for you

I decided to stay at home and I'm glad really.

I took additional mat leave but when it came up to the end of my standard mat leave I decided not to go back.

We were the same and thought it would be hard to manage financially but you do. Dh has his stress moments when he panics about money but we've never had a bad month and it's been over a year since I made the decision to stay at home.

Good luck to you and I hope it works out.
