Should I, or not?

Hello fellow mommies :) I need ya'lls advice about something.
So, this Friday I will be 32 weeks pregnant (due March 15th) & I was looking to get a job, doing something maybe over the phones - customer service wise.
Should I do it, or no? I mean, I feel that it's a good idea. But a few family members have told not to bother with it since I'm so far into my pregnancy.
I talked to my BF about it & he says to go for it!
I personally just wanna get myself out of the house & make some money before my little princess is born.
I also go to school in the evenings to become a Full-Specialist (person who works with Skin & Nails) & should be graduating in mid Feb. But I wanna work as much as possible before I give birth & work as soon as I can afterwards, too.
My plan is to get a job doing costumer service, finish school, get my license, have the baby, & have a part-time job continuing costumer service & working in a spa.
What do you guys think?

I would rather focus on my baby but that's just how I do it. If you want to get a job, get a job!

The reason I want to get a job is for her. I don't want to be the typical teen-mom who lives with their parents forever. I want to have my own place with my own family! The only way you can do that is with money. Everything I do is for my daughter, even though she's not ehre yet.

If you can find someoneto hire you, I would go for it, or maybe volunteer some place.

Yeah, lol. I called a place today & I'm going in tomorrow to fill out an application. I told them that I was 31 weeks pregnant & asked if that would be an issue and they said, "Absolutely not." & to go ahead and come in and fill out the application anyway.

I was a teen mom. My mom, who isn't the best person in the world but still my mom, let me stay home with my daughter. She's almost 7 now, so I'm glad she did. I moved out when I was 17 and my daughter was 1, moved in with my boyfriend and now I'm married to him and on baby #3. Still don't have a job. Lol

Well, taking care of my kids is my job.

I wouldn't worry about being the "typical teen mom", I would just do what you think is best for your baby. If that's getting a job, get a job.

It's important to have a job but I wonder why you waited this long to find one ? Most people take maternity leave around this time or atleast start slowing down and prepairing/ resting before baby.. Also have you been offered a job ? I know it can be Hard finding employment while visibly pregnant.

They cannot legally tell you that they won't hire you when you're that far along, so don't go in expecting a job.

I job hunted from before i got pregnant til just recently cuz I'm 37 wks. I did get an offer, but since the training period is 5 wks, and i obviously don't have that much time left, they left me with the promise of a position post-delivery. I'm hoping they keep their word, but there is nothing to guarantee that they will. This, too, was a sit- down customer service position working on the phone.

I had a job cleaning houses. Worked there for about a month and a half and they told me that they "couldn't work around my situation" because they used backpack vacuums & my doctor said I couldn't carry anything over 10lbs; the backpack was at least 20lbs. I gave my boss a paper from my doctor starting that I had to have breaks in between jobs & that I couldn't carry anything over 10lbs. I worked there for exactly ONE WEEK before they told me that they "couldn't work around my situation". I asked them if I could just use a stand-up vacuum instead & they said no.
