So I am going to be 30 weeks pregnant on Sunday, and I have been thinking about getting a job. But every time I picture myself going and applying for a job, I think, are they going to say no because in 2 months I have to go on maternity leave? I know that it's illegal to do that, but come on, you know employers are thinking it. My husband works and we are doing all right financially now, but next week we are going to start renting our own house (currently we live with my FIL and pay bills but no rent). I have been crunching the numbers, and DH makes just enough for us to pay our bills, rent, and buy food. Now the problem is that we have NOTHING for this baby that is going to be here in 2 and a half months because the 7 month old that we had 2 years ago passed away and I donated everything she had to charity. So before I talk to my DH tonight about maybe starting a job hunt (he doesn't think I should work BTW), can anyone give me advice? Or has anyone been in a similar situation?
