A few years ago, I saw a Dateline that analyzed working parents’ budgets and in 3 cases, they found that it was cheaper for them to have one parent stay at home with the children.  His being at home might be a blessing in disguise.  The cost of childcare often cancels out a person’s salary and then some.

Good luck while you think this through.

I agree with Miss_Longcoat. I stress about daycare as it is and my baby isn’t due til Sept. As far as his job, if y’all live within your means, you should be fine. The only thing I’d worry about was adding the baby to the insurance once it was born, especially with private insurance.

As for the health insurance issue…check into your state’s department of public welfare.  I know that in PA, the minute you get pregnant, you’re eligible for Medicaid and other programs and your child will be covered also.
