I had preemie triplets in September. They were born at 28 weeks and are still in the NICU. I am supposed to go back to work Nov. 4th but got the doc to keep me off till December 2nd. Hopefully my girls will be home by then. The problem is that I don't want to go back to work. I want to be here with my babies. My mother is moving in to help us with the girls, but I want to raise my babies. I had my oldest in 2003 and was lucky that my mother-in-law was there for us to watch her while my husband and I went back to work. But I always regretted that my oldest spent more time at Grandmas then she did at home and while she and I are very close, would we be closer if I had stayed home with her. I don't want my babies this time to be raised by anyone other then me. I hate to sound like this, I'm not normally a whiny person but I have been really depressed lately at the thought of having to leave them, even if it is at home. Can anyone help me with this. Should I quit my job and stay home like I want to? Am I being unreasonable?
