I freaking hate mondays. I actually hate my job. I am a project manager for a software company. I'll leave it at that, never know when big brother is watching. I worry a lot about working here while pregnant. Stress can't be good for a pregnancy and I pretty much almost cry weekly at work. I have thought about quitting and finding a new job. But it's really not the best time to start a new job, when you are going to be getting pregnant hopefully.
If I work here when I get pregnant, I will not go back to work. I would like 1 year off. Now, I would prefer a part time gig and then stick to part time for 3-5 years. If this job was willing to let me keep one or two of my accounts and work from home 10 hours a week and come into the office for 10 hours a week, etc. I would stay here, but this job is not that progressive, they wouldn't ever consider such a thing. So, maybe i would be better off finding a new job at smaller company that is privately owned and might be more apt to consider such a thing. However, I would think I'd need to prove myself before a company would care to keep me part time. And who knows how much time I have on my hands? It's all very confusing. It's a shame there are not more part time professional opportunities. I hate to not bring in any income, but there is no way being here 45 hours a week is more important than seeing my babies firsts. No way, but I need to come up with a way to bring in a few hundred a week. Maybe I will watch someone else's kid?? Or try to start up that dog walking business. Couldn't I take the baby with me strapped to my chest for dog walks?? But that'd only be $10 bucks a walk, so I'd need to have like 30walks a week, that doesn't sound likely.... Sigh, how do people make ends meet on one salary!
