Woooo! Just had to share my excitement! After 3 months of unemployment, DH was offered a job at the University here

Such a relief. But also a bit of a bummer because he won't have much leave accrued by the time Scarlet is born. So I will just have to manage on my own.

Congrats!!! Hope you can work out something for him to be able to help you some when you need it. That's my biggest fear right now, after having my husband's help this entire pregnancy (him being unemployed the whole time, even before we found out), what if he gets a job now and I have to take the kids with me to my remaining appointments and then I have no help after the baby is born? I'm already most likely going to give birth alone again, since we don't know if we'll have any help watching the kids.

Yes, it is very scary! He has been helping me get to appointments and things. Luckily I will only have 2 appointments left after he starts.. so hopefully I can manage. The new job knows we are expecting and will let him leave for the day when I have my c-section. My kids will be going with my mom for the time I am in the hospital.

But when I get home... I am on my own. And that is terrifying.

YAY!! Im sure you are hugely relieved that hes got a job! I hope it all works out well and he loves his new job. I hope things can go smoothly for you after the baby too. I know its stressful to think of doing on your own. Hope he doesnt work crazy hours and can make a difference for you while he is home!

Wooohooo! That must be such a relief. I can imagine it's a little tough for both of you knowing that he'll have to work, and not take much time off when baby comes, but in the long run, it's fantastic

Yay! Exciting for him!! Sorry...can't remember...is he a professor? Will he get some decent time off over the holidays and summers? I'm sure it's kind of a stressful time for her to be starting a new job, but also a stress-relief that he's gainfully employed again. Only three months of unemployment is pretty darn good these days.

No, he isn't a professor. He is a Human Resource Manager. So he will be working in the Benefits Department on campus. He won't get time off for summer, but he does get all the school holidays off, as well as personal time, sick time, and vacation time. And they have great benefits. So he is really excited

Congrats! It sounds like a really great job too. And one less thing to stress about, even with the question about his paternity leave.
