Stay at home since I"m pregnatn again- all my salary would go to daycare if I'd kept on working, and in that case I'd rather spend the first few years with Baby

Working until I can finally carry to term. Once we can finally have a baby, I'll stay at home because I don't make enough to make it worth it to work.

I have been both (I stayed at home for the first year of Jaleigh's life). Right now I'm working as a surgical tech at a veterinary clinic. I love my job but I honestly hate being away from my kids all day long.

Well I'm not a mother yet but I've been weighing my options. I'll be going back to work for two reasons: the first is that I do like my job and its important to me to keep writing, the second is that I still have student loans to pay off and I don't really want to offload that extra burden onto my SO - I consider it my responsibility to finish paying those off.

I'm not sure. I'm unemployed, but I'm not sure I'm yet a SAHM, I think I'm just a job searching mom. I'm not so sure I think dh'll be the next one with a job.

I am TTC, but whenever it does happen I will be a working mom. Which really scares me, I always wanted to be a SAHM, but we just cant afford that.

I am a stay-at-home mom to my 3-year-old daughter Melody. I am planning on getting a job when she goes to kindergarten.
