Last day of work before maternity leave for me tomorrow. I think I should be excited but I am feeling really anxious.
I am more than happy to be off work and be a mum. I don’t feel worried about the birth or the feeding or the lack of sleep or any of the mum parts. The anxiety comes from staring into the unknown tunnel with no clear light at the end. This sounds morbid, I don’t mean it to.
I am finishing work but I do not have a job to go back to and it has suddenly hit me.
