I just gave birth to my 2 nd child. I worked right til the end of the school
year. I deleivered on august 5. My best advice to you- invest in comfortable
SLIDE ON or VELCRO shoes!aS YOU GET FARTHER ALONG- "CHEAT" A BIT- sit when
taking atendance, talking to students about their work............Make sure
you put up your feet at lunch time.
Most importantly, get your husband behind you- mine was great about letting
me collapse when I got home each day for an hour or two nap. It was simply
mandatory. There was no not doing it. Your exhaustion is real. Make sure
you're drinking enough- i kept a water bottle w/ me at all times. Also samll
snacks like a box of crqckers you can pick on when needed. I made apoint of
eating a piece of fruit every day before my 40 minute drive home. Hope this
helps- you can email me privately to discuss further @ Caslcat@aol.com
