I just started back full time in a professional program in January. I'm feeling really guilty about leaving my 21 week old at daycare for around nine hours a day. I also haven't gotten into a good study routine yet and feel like I'm not performing satisfactorily in class. I'm feeling overwhelmed and a little hopeless with the situation and could use some advice or words of encouragement.

dont feel guilty. youre doing what you have to do for your child. I have twins and they have been in day care since they were 6 months because i had to go back to work. and now i am in school.

Hun, I know it is hard. I am a Full time student and a full time mommy to a 2mo old. However, i am taking classes online so i can be here with him. Just keep in mind that you are doing this so that you and your child can have a good easy life. It's hard now, but it won't always be.. one day it'll pass and you'll be so happy you did it. Just push until you get where you want to be. Unfortunately it is not going to get any easier. Just keep pushing and don't give up. It's for a great cause and you are setting an example for you LO.

I started back at school full time 2 weeks after my daughter was born, and it is very stressful! I was lucky enough to have online classes, however having to do a minimum of 8 hours of school work a day gets very stressful! Just keep tellingn yourself you are doigg this to better your future, and in retrospect your babies as well!
