How do you cope if you leave the hospital after a c-section and your partner has to go back to work?
DH has decided he doesnt want to study anymore (but is unsure whether he just wnats to switch courses and do something else along with casual/part time work or work full time). If he gets a job now he wont get any leave entitlements in december when i am having my c-section. I am also worried about DS because if DH is working he will have to be in full time care (which we are not entitled to CCB for more than 24 hours)......He will be 2 and i have been told that for a few weeks after the section i am not suposed to pick him up. Last time i didnt cope well with doing things for a few weeks after a c-section and am worried that this time it might be the same.
My mum can take a bit of time off but not a lot so she cant help much. Everyone else, friends and family, work full time and cant take the time to help or they live to far away.
So if DH decides to get a full time job and doesnt get any time off while im in hospital or when i am discharged and i have no friends or family that can help what do i do? Has anyone else been in this situation.
Chances are it might not happen cos DH has found a course or two he is interested in and they are 12 months full time and doing that with some night work we will survive but i just want the "just in case advice"............in some ways i wish he worked it out earlier he felt this way so he could have got a job in time to get annual leave.........arrgghhh having babies is so confusing.
I probably sound like a spoilt brat but I am afraid of being alone while in hospital and afterwards........................
