Babies really don't cost that much. Diapers and wipes are pretty important, some clothes and a car seat, maybe a pacifier. As a parent, I spend money on my daughter because it makes me feel good. If you breastfeed that will save you $100/month on formula costs. Really you don't need a lot of extras.

As for the job... I stuck it out at a job I really hated so that I could get maternity leave, and basically it just sucks. As you get more pregnant, it seems like the job sucks even more - your tolerance goes out the window. Would I do it again? Probably. Stick it out through your pregnancy and then job hunt while on maternity leave. That would be my suggestion because a new employer generally won't be happy when they hear you're expecting and may not guarantee your job back. Good luck either way.
