Work issues

So as of Monday (6 weeks pp) I have started back at work a couple hours each day. This is because my husband quit his job on the oil rig due to unsafe conditions. He has been actively looking for a job since then. Hopefully he gets somethings soon! I am only working until he starts working. I am jealous that he gets to stay home with baby girl while I have to work. Part of the reason I had to come back was because we majorly needed money. About 3 weeks before I had Madilyn my work moved my to part time. That cut my money in half. Then once I had her I found out that since I was a part time employee now that I no longer could receive short term disability. ( I had been paying for my short term the whole 4 years I have been with this company. And at the beginning of the year I even upped my plan to pay more monthly so I could get more when I went out on maternity leave. All of this for nothing. Needless to say I was extremely pissed off! But nothing I could do about it because I need the insurance coverage for my daughter. We are not sure what we are going to do about my job but I know that we can't afford for me to only work part time and pay for Madilyn to go to daycare. Hopefully Brandon gets a job soon and after the 3 month probation time we can have insurance with his company and then I may quit my job here.

There is alot more I could say about my work situation and our money problems but it could get really long lol

My best friend had her baby girl 2 days ago! And my other really good friend just found her her and her husband are expecting in June:) Lots of babies around here.

I'll leave you with some pics...

My life now;)

Is all about Madilyn lol I love her so much! She will be one month old tomorrow! Can't believe she is getting so big;) My husband is still working out of town one week on and one off and he misses her so much when he is gone.

When I delivered her I was at about 190lbs. Now, one month later I am at 158lbs. So I still have about 10lbs to go to get to my pre pregnancy weight. Then another 7 to get to my goal weight. We are about to start going on walks since it is just starting to get nice outside.

We are still working on sleeping at night. She goes about 3 1/2 hours without eating which isn't to bad because I get a little bit of sleep....as long as she doesn't want to stay up for an hour at a time. She is still getting breastmilk. I have been EP'ing but just recently started breastfeeding again. So I plan to do both for now. My ultimate goal would be for her to have breastmilk till she is a year old. Hopefully I can do it!

She is about to wake up so I will update again soon. Hopefully I can start updating again on a more regular schedule.

Here are some pics:)
