be a stay at home mom or go back to work?

I left my job about a few months back because I was in and out of the hospital. I was having bad back pains and bleeding. I was scared that working full time at Pizza Hut was killing my baby. Now I am 7 months pregnant and we are hurting for cash. I have been offer my job back and Im scared it will started all over again. I havent had any pain or bleeding and the baby is doing great, but I need this job. I am really stressing myself out about money and it maybe the reason why I cant gain any weight in my pregnancy. I dont know what to do and everyone around me is not helping...

  • Theres no harm in trying. If yourealize that you cant handle it then at least you know you gave it your best shot! GL

  • Um, seriously this sounds alot like a cop out to me. Lots of women work while pregnant, even up till the day of the birth. You will be fine. My thoughts are that everyone NEEDS to work with the economy the way it is. Not too long in the future, all public assistance is going to cease to exist. Better grab a job while you can!

  • That is not a cop out! Some women work til the day their baby is born. Others are on bed rest for months. It varies from woman to woman and pregnancy to pregnancy.

    I totally agree with you ma2b08. I had morning sickness for 6 months straight. I had a good job than I just quit cause I couldnt function. I wish you the best in your decision. "All woman are different with their pregnancies."

  • maybe see if you can work PT since you are so far along and need to rest as much as possible! you also might want to apply for some financial assistance! I'm sorry no one is helping you out and best of luck to you!
