  • With my first pregnancy, I was sick the entire time and it would have crippled our finances if I was off the whole time because of sickness. Now I'm pregnant with my second child, and it actually went away when my 2nd trimester started and I wish I would have taken some time off on the really bad days. I guess if you can afford to reduce your time or go to half days, go ahead! And as bad as it sounds, i would handle it as well as you can with your employer if you are planning to go back after you have the baby so you know your job is secure.

Right now is a good time to look into the same,just incase you want to take some time off you will still have a good source of income coming in. If you want to know more about what I do, just ask me.
