  • if you can afford to not work, you should just wait..and probably shorten you maternity 'leave', if dh is still jobless.

  • I sell and sold Tastefully Simple while I was pregnant....twice!! Its great because you can make your own schedule, you only work 2 hours at a time...and you work usually from 6:30 to 8:30pm so you shouldn't be too tired. I would love to send you info if you are interested. I absolutely LOVE it!!!

  • you could do many things like selling scentsyor pampered chef or avon etc and make as much or as little time for it as you want - you could work during your leave if your felt good

  • No I wouldn't try any traditional job. No one in their right mind is going to hire you just 8 weeks before delivery. Good luck though. Were in the same situation.
