What Should I Do? To Work or Not To Work

I had quit work to go back to school. I started school in August, got married in September and found out I was pregnant in January. I had a really tough pregnancy for the first, like, 14 weeks or so. I wasn't able to go back to school due to some problem with getting my transcripts transferred from my first try at college. We aren't really struggling or anything, but I've really been wanting to get back into work. I'm not really the SAHM mom. We do have 4 year old twins, but I was gonna put them in daycare while I worked.

I've been offered an interview for an online gaming company as a customer service rep. As far as I can tell, the hours are Mon-Fri 9-5. I don't know if I should take it or not, simply because I will have to have an appointment every month for the OB. Should I tell them I'm pregnant? I'm due in September. After I have the baby, I want to go back to work, but work, like, part time or something like.

  • I simply have one thing in my mind all the time. " When I wake up Monday morning" am I excited about the day? I have been working all my life - I am 47 going on 35! I hear the economy sucks, so to speak, our economy here in TX isn't so bad. I still wrk for a compny I can't stand. 11 yrs & virtually nothing. I do believe now in doing what U want to do. If you do not HAVE to work but want to do something, do something you would love. Even though the economy is bad in places, do you know that more people that work something they love will come out far financially ahead when it is all over!
    I, myself started in a direct sales business lst yr when the economy was falling & we have boomed! We have more consultants making more money than any other out there. I love it. I am almost where I want to be to quit my f/t. My biz is SCENTSY We just added over 2,000 new consultants in March. DO SOMETHING FR U!
