Just an update I am on my last stretch of my second trimester and heading into my third very soon. But that is not the complete reason on why I am posting this, we have been struggling since we moved to a different state and its not fun.
With this little blessing God gave us, we feel that we are drowning with everything. We try to scrimp and save where we can but it doesn’t seem to help. He is the only one with a stable flow of income right now. I have a job but I only get paid by the hours I put in, and since its a start up company, its not even that much so we do not count my income in the budget as it changes a lot. We have car payments, credit cards, rent and now the bills that come up from my prenatal check ups and labs after insurance.
We do not regret having this child as we prayed to have one for more than a year, but I admit earlier on I was contemplating on why now when we barely scrape by and even thought of abortion (this one I already confessed to our priest).
I want to be able to help my husband with the finances but in order to do that, I have to have a full time job. I am really scared of even applying because I am doubtful that they will hire a 6 month pregnant nurse. Plus child care will cost us more once baby comes in. We have thought of and still thinking of moving back from where we came from where its cheaper, my parents live there and his family is closer, where we have more friends to support us but we do not have the means to do so, my former company has actually reached out for some openings but they do not pay for relocation…my husband is struggling to find a position back there that can pay relocation.
Should I resign once baby is born or still work with the same company or find another job that is more fulltime?
