Good morning ladies,
I am simi new to just mommies. I was part of the forum when I was pregnant with my son, and now I am pregnant again and decided to join again. I am just going to vent a bit, I'm just wondering if there is anyone else that has the same feelings I do. When I was pregnant with my 1st child I always knew I would stay at home instead of working. Well of course things did not work out that way, and I returned to work full time and my mom watched my son, who is now 4 and is school. Well this time around I am not so lucky to have my mom watch the baby I am now pregnant with. I am only 6 weeks by the way. My fiancé and I do NOT want to put our baby in child care; however he is not able to support us on his own income for me to stay at home. I have thought about maybe searching for a part time job once the baby is born, but then I will still have to put my child in child care, which I really DO NOT want to do. It’s sad to say but I think I have to just suck it up and work to make ends meet. Does anyone else have these feelings? I didn't really have a big issue with working until I found out I was pregnant now the anxiety of working is creeping back up.
Honey I completely understand where you are coming from, I was there 5 years ago with #4 child. I started looking for something that I could do from home and found something before I had her and did it while I was on leave from work. I am so glad I did a search because I never returned to work and I stay home with now 5 kids and love what I do from home. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to talk more. I wish you all the best and know you are not alone when making a hard decision
