My partner and I have a 4 week old bubba and my partner (who is the birth mother) is staying home for 6 months while I return to work.
I am having trouble doing this! I know its wrong but I am jealous of my partner cause she gets to spend more time with our little girl, while I am at work. It doesn't help that I don't really love my job, but unfortunately we aren't in the financial position to have both of us staying home.
I just don't want to miss anything and I am worried I am getting depressed cause I am crying about it often! My partner feels bad and guilty which I don't like but I can't help how I feel. It also doesn't help that there isn't really an end to the situation - it's not like I can quit or that my partner can return to work.
I guess I was wondering if anyone else out there has been in a similar situation and if so how did you get through it? I also just needed to get it off my chest, in the hope that someone would understand and maybe have some advice.
Thanks in advance!!
