I am thinking about taking a couple weeks off before Fynn is born. I left work three days before Mad's due date and I loved how great I felt. I especially loved how great I felt compared to how lousy and completely unenergetic I felt on my first day off three weeks before Corey was due. I never really regained my energy once I was off waiting for him.
If I stay at work, I will be stuck in the office for the first two weeks of August because my students won't be in class. I am not an office person.
If I stay home I will be guaranteeing myself a 50 mile ride in labor. I believe I can tolerate that, but the just thought of being off work early brings on a feeling of exhaustion. On the upside, I'd have more time with Madelyn before Fynn is here.
I just don't know which way is better for me. Any suggestions? I sought help elsewhere, but nothing so far.
