How did you feel about work when you got pregnant? Mrs. Bowen Due February 7; Arkansas 103 posts
30th Jul

I am almost 12 weeks and have been at my job for about 6 months. Right now I cant stand my job and just want to leave. My problem is I used to love my job before I got pregnant but now it seems like my boss's belittle me. I am the only employee where I work and it seems like my boss and his wife are always correcting me. I make descent money but have no benefits, I have been missing a lot of work due to being sick and just dreading going in. My hubby doesnt mind if I quit but I just feel bad not having anything else lined up even though I have already started applying for other positions. I only work part time and have no benefits at all. I have no maternity coverage from anywhere and we make to much for medicaid with me working. I just am not sure what is best to do. I have a couple possibilities I could do if I dont get another job within a couple months. What would you ladies do? I just feel I have nothing holding me to this job but am afraid I only feel this way because of my hormones. I am just scared to leave without anything else lined up and not be able to afford things for the baby.TIA

I would try and stick it out, at least until you get something else lined up. You may hate it now, but next week you may feel differently. And I would be sure to give proper notice before leaving your job as well.

When I was first pregnant I hates everything about my job. It's not so bad now. So stick it out.

The day I found out I was pregnant is the day I quit. We have no money issues though. If money is tight for you than you should stick it out until you can find a new job and save as much as you can.

Well, if you have no maternity leave rights, and you won't at the next job, then it's really just a matter of if you can really afford to quit. I wasn't planning on being a SAHM but it turned out to be what's best for my family right now. It's a very personal choice really, but if you must work then look for something before you quit.

I am pregnant and I work as a host for Applebee's so I never get to sit. They don't give breaks and I work 6-9 hour shifts. I am a little worried about how all that standing and walking because I bus tables is going to feel. My feet swelled the last two pregnancies so I fear that all the standing will just make it worse if they do swell.

My husband and I have discussed it and I think he wants me to stay home and take care of the house, which I would love to do. We have a great relationship. I think we would be good financially.

Depends on the job, and the pregnancy. With my first pregnancy, I was dizzy and lightheaded on a daily basis, and did not work, but I also lived with my parents and had no bills to pay.



With my second pregnancy, aside from a little nausea, I felt great most days. I was working full time and on my feet, as a bartender and waitress and front of supervisor. I was making a lot of money doing that, and the thought of quitting just repulsed me. My co-workers thought I was SuperWoman for being able to cope with the job pregnant. I ended up going back to qwork after the baby was born, only to quit to become a sahm 2 months into being back at work because my Husband and I felt overwhelmed with both of us working fulltime on top of having 2 kids.



With my 3rd pregnancy, which I am in right now (off topic, but it feels so damn good to say "3rd pregnancy" after trying for #3 for so long).................I have a super cushy work at home job that I make decent money at. I plan to work through my pregnancy, but there are times when I just feel so tired that I cant work anymore and go ahead and clock out. I dont want to piss my boss off since this is the cushiest job I will ever have in my life, I work from my home office, I set my own hours, which enables me to still be a SAHM for my kids even though I work and bring in a paycheck, but I just get sooo tired. She does expect a certain amount of hours per week, and I usually work from 9 PM-5 am during the week, but lately around 2 AM i just cant stay up anymore, I am afraid I will literally fall asleep on a customer. She hasn't said anything yet about me putting in less time, but I am waiting for her to say something any second.

Oh look, it's the child acting like a child. If you could think like an adult you'd understand why I was asking.

Hop off my back lady. I am tired of your shit. You have taken your childish f**king gossip as far as feeding into more drama and getting my personal information. But I am the f**king child right? Worry about your f**king kids and not gossiping about my f**king life.

I am thinking it would be best for me to quit. I can barely make it through one day at work. Its so dreadful, its a good job (hours and pay) but I break down in the mornings and when I get there I wish I could go home and every day is a bad day. I hate it and I come up with every excuse not to work anymore. I hate feeling this way but its just so aweful :(
