  • If you only have eight weeks to go, I would stick it out.

  • You'd only get $100 a week?

    If you're comfortable in your situation and don't NEE the money that bad, then stay home and enjoy the end of your pregnancy and spend time with the little one you already have.

  • By the way--at least give your 2 weeks notice respectfully.

  • I think you should stay until you deliver your baby, take your benefits and NEVER come back again!! At least that is my plano on my actual job!!! lol

  • if your husband can support you and your family without your income then quit. if not, stick it through so you can get maternity leave/benefits. and then, just don't go back to that job after your 6 weeks is up. then tell your boss what you think.
