Has anyone ever used a good maternity leave coach? I'm feeling like a mess...so I think it could be helpful... but I'm not sure it's worth the money.

I had this giant to-do list for maternity leave but now that the baby's here, I'm realizing I'm going to get a lot less done than I thought. I somehow thought I'd be able to get some reading done while my baby naps!! Anyone else feeling like there's literally nothing that's possible except getting a food and shower in?
I'm planning to pump at work and I want to make sure I buy the right things. Anyone have tips on best/most important equipment to purchase?
I'm having a hard time concentrating, I feel so huge and uncomfortable and am just generally wondering whether I should just go home most days and start my maternity leave already...even though I was planning on working until week 40. What did other people do if they were feeling this way?
I just sat down to create our family budget for after the baby is born and I'm really shocked at how everything adds up. Anyone else feel like having a child is insanely expensive? I've looked over our budget a few times and tried to cut it down to the basics but I think we might have to go into credit card debt to afford daycare....I'm feeling really frustrated and wondering if its worth continuing to work. Anyone else quit b/c of finances?
