I am currently 30 weeks pregnant and have been working full time throughout the pregnancy. I plan on going back to work as well after my FMLA time off (3 months) is up. I actually would prefer to stay home a bit longer but unfortunately, our household really needs two incomes to make things work. That’s pretty much the major factor for why I will continue to work unless it’s absolutely necessary for me to stop (i.e. bed rest due to complications or something along those lines).

I would base this decision on how it will affect your employability a few years down the road.

This is what I wrote on your other post:

I was definately working and then cut down to part time with #2 to be home with them more.

To be honest,I think if you put your career on the back burner without any type of experience, you might always have a hard time finding a job. I would try to find something at least part time and build your resume first.

I work full time as a social worker and go to low income, heavy gang infested neighborhoods. Fiance wants me to switch to another department in January, and I want to switch as well. We are NTNT right now, but fully TTC in January and after having one miscarriage this year, we are not going to take any chances for our baby or my life. It will be a work from home position doing home studies for foster families. That way I can bring in a little extra money per month and still be at home.

 

I was unemployed from April to July 2012 when I graduated and Fiance was so supportive and wanted me to do whatever I wanted.
