    I was, I lost all interest in my job and hated it, sadly, it must have shown as I got sacked 3 weeks ago :( (5 of us did) so Im unemployed now and wishing I was still at work :(

    I struggle everyday. I wait till the very last minute to do my reports, don't bother sorting my papers anymore. Just really don't want to be here at all. just want to go home and get ready for my little girl.

    Thanks :) Its ok because even though Im unemployed, I had lost all enthusiasm for the job once I knew I was pregnant as I wouldnt have been going back after baby was born so in some ways Im glad Im not there. I went in every day with a feeling of dread and just couldnt be bothered. All I wanted to do was go home and look at baby things lol

    I feel a bit like that, I was signed off for 3 weeks and found it hard to go back as I wanted to be at home and just concentrate on baby things. Im counting down the days until I leave in 4 months! xxx

    I just feel so tired all the time and find everything an effort. I just can't be bothered! I want to take some holiday but don't really want to as I'm saving it so I can go on maternity leave earlier!! I'm glad I'm not alone with feeling like this. Sigh.

    Im in the same boat!!! I am not motivated at all!!!! I cant wait to be a stay at home mommy- at least for as long as we can afford it- Its so hard now to survive on only one income, and back in the day it was soo common to see stay at home mommies and be able to survive on only 1 income- How sad :( Im also reevaluating my career goals while Im at home

Hope work time goes fast for everyone x x x

    I'm the same too! I'm struggling bigtime. It doesn't help that work is quiet at the moment too so the days are going in sooo slow. I need to be careful what i wish for though as tomorrow i could well be being made redundant, so will only have 4 weeks left! In a sick twisted way, i kind of want to be :S we'll be pretty skint, but it just means i can get things sorted for baby!

    I'm definitely gunna re-think my career too, and go back to work part time after bubba is born!

    I am a high-school teacher and now work just 3 days a week since going back after maternity.

    I just finished yesterday for the summer holidays!

    Off 9.5 weeks til 15th August! I will go back to work when I am 26wks for just 8wks before maternity starts, so I have got it easy now!!

    These last few weeks I have been just counting down the days til my hols begin, and when I go back in August I will be doing the same.

    Oh, what to do for the next 9.5 weeks.....(sorry!) :flower:
