    Thanks MCH! Appointment today at 1130. Plan my day around it because, you know, baby's health.
    Also looking forward to an outing out of the house. This was perfect opportunity because it had a purpose and was non negotiable and my anxiety about being out with DS alone was going to be pushed through. I also planned and started feeds today around that appointment.
    Get a text this morning saying nope, appointment changed to 1.15 at my house - which I'm completely unprepared for. House is not visitor ready and DS won't sleep anywhere today except on me so chances of tidying up = slim to none. Also have a voicemail saying 1.00pm. Well which is it? Who's coming? And when do I actually get to meet the MCN we're hooked up with ? Since their literature bangs on about building rapport and continuity of care. This will be the third different MCN we've met and DS is 2.5 weeks old.

    Can you call whoever is in charge of the service and speak to them? In our area it's the local council that employs them.

    Phew! I'm afraid people will think I'm a monster for desperately wanting to be away from my kids sometimes :/

    Spent the morning at the park and now I feel sunburnt. My daughter is breaking out in a rash from every type of sunscreen that I've tried so I didn't put any on her and just tried to keep her in the shade and keep her hat on, so I really really really hope she's not burnt!

    Evacuated at work due to a fire alarm.....but back inside within 10 mins. I was kind of hoping to go home.....(though obviously glad it wasn't anything serious).

    I rang them and asked for a different centre since this one is so unreliable. I still haven't been given info on new parents group even though I told the last 2 I saw I wanted to.
    This one today wanted to know how I was going and how I was feeling. I lied and told her I was great. What's the point? I'm never seeing her again so didn't see the point in telling her that I hate it, I cry every day many times and if I could go back to work already I would.
    I'll leave that conversation to someone who's not a fill in.
    Council have changed my centre now so I'll wait until I go there in 2 weeks and see how I go.

    My boys were 6 months before we went to mums group, and they were the eldest. At this time of year they won't start new groups until jan/ feb.

    Don't worry about the house not being visitor ready because
    1. As frequent visitors to the homes of new mothers they would have seen it all and much worse
    2. They are very understanding of how time intensive new babies are
    3. You may find you will have to let your house standards drop slightly in babies first year. (My dd is nearly 14 months, I really have no excuse )

    How was today apart from the dickie MCHNs?

    Sucks that you have to wait, we're rural so our nurses aren't as busy so we can go more often.
    Don't hide how you feel. Does your partner know? And don't be ashamed that you want to go back to work, it's a big adjustment.
