I would first talk with your husband about all possibly options and what he & you think will work best… ie the other office. Your DH may prefer the commute with you b/c he can be with you and know you’re safe.

I think the first thing I would try to push for is working from home… who knows, maybe you could keep working there from home after the baby’s born so you still have the 2nd income AND you can be home as mommy.

Then if it’s just not possible, you can look at moving to the other office OR even getting another job?

But definitely talk out all options with DH first… maybe even sit down and get down on paper time savings, $$ savings, etc, with each possible option.

Goodluck =)

Wow. I couldn’t imagine it taking me 40 hours for a 30 mile drive or so. Bless your heart.

I would be cautious of speaking with your boss again — in fear of your boss telling you to stay home “permantley”. Maybe when you meet with your DR. discuss that you’re still extremely sick almost every day and maybe they can try some other type of medication?

Have you spoke with FH about switching locations and no longer commuting together? how does he feel about it? If all else fails you’ll have no choice but to talk with your boss again. What type of company do you work for?

I don’t think you should rule out looking for another job just because you are pregnant. Also, discuss with your boss working from home, and see what he says

I’d do both.  Is your boss an approachable, reasonable person?  If you can have an open dialogue with him/her let them know the options you’ve been considering and see what they say.  It’s possible that you can come up with a reasonable compromise.  Good luck.  That sounds terrible 🙁

Oh, PP has a good point.  I’d look for a new job as well.  It can’t hurt.  My company has hired people that were 4+ months pregnant.  The drawback was that they were only given 6 wks of maternity leave as they weren’t entitled to FMLA.
