Is there anything I could do while on maternity leave to bring in more income?  Any kind of legit work at home stuff possibly?

Are you still pregnant or on leave now?

I'm working from home for my regular employer.

If you're working for your employer, even from your home, then you're not really on leave.

 I am still pregnant.  My job isn't something I can do from home.  Finances are tighter than usual due to an unexpected surgery my dh had to have so I kind of would like to bring home a little more income if I could.

Well, honestly.... I think you may need to have the babe first so you get the hang of being a mother before trying to find work from home.

I understand finances are tight , but maternity leave is for getting the hang of the mom thing (or adding babe to the other children," mom"
thing)

Maybe you should bring babe home first. And a see how the first week goes. ( and no shame in asking for temporary PA)
