I'm mulling over everything that has happened over the last week for dh and I. We lost our pregnancy after an ectopic at 6 weeks.
I'm not looking at returning to work until the week after next. I'm kind of dreading the return to work. My workmates are fine, they know what's happened and are very supportive.
It's my clients that worry me. I'm a family lawyer so I'm constantly dealing with parents and issues with kids. I am constantly - and I mean almost weekly - asked by clients if I have kids or am planning too. It's hard enough when we were ttc for ages and getting that question but now, I think I'd break down and cry. I don't know what to do the next time this happens.
I'm also worried they are going to want to know why I was off for three weeks and didn't tell them. If I'm off sick for one day some of them get very put out and are really cranky. I hate to think how they will be when I get back after three weeks. Even the ones that are being genuinely nice, I don't know what to say when they ask why I have been off for so long.
Id love to just stay at home and never go back.... But that's not an option
