    Sorry to hear about your loss. 


    That’s a tough one –

    Here’s a question for you – After the baby is born, would you go back to work or be a SAHM?

    I would honestly go for the temp job, Would you have to stay the entire 8 month duration?

    It’s a tough situation and really depends on a financial stand point for you and your husband.

    @Olive27:  Can you survive on your husband’s salary alone? I would still take this job. No guarantees when you will conceive, and perhaps you don’t until 4-5 months from now and are able to finish out the assignment. Were you planning on going back to work/would it be feasible to work, meaning, amount you would make would be more than the cost of childcare?

    I would take the job that was offered.  If the one you really want gets offered to you later, then quit to take it.  In this kind of economy, they’ll have no shortage of applicants to take your spot.  And if you plan on working after the baby comes, it’s better to have a permanent, full-time job already lined up to return to.  That way if you don’t get the one you really want, at least you’re still employed in the meantime until you find something else.
