I am just wandering if there are any support groups, either on bubhub or elsewhere, for mums who's partner works away?
My DH works away a lot. He isn't exactly fifo- it's not that regular or routine. Some weeks he leaves 4:30am Monday and isn't back until Friday 9pm. Other weeks he might be home for 1-2 days but away for 2-3. And when he is 'home' he still often works until 6pm or drives 3-4hrs (he works in agriculture) each way for work. And he goes overseas a couple times a year for 1-3 weeks at a time.
I also work full time and have a 4 yr old and find it very tough. I am pregnant with our 2nd and I just don't know how I am going to cope. I get a little help from MIL but that's only one day a week. My mother is still working and too busy to help unless it's an absolute emergency.
All my friends have partners that work normal hours, so I don't really have anyone I can relate to in this matter.
