Is it too much?

I am 22 years old, I have two full time children and a stepchild every other week, I've just started a third shift job and I should also add I'm 6 months pregnant. The issue I'm having is I am having a very difficult time waking up and spending time with my kids whom I'm very dedicated to in an attempt to save money in this economy I have opted out of daycare since I'm home my husband works a very good job and is paid very well and he is afraid I'm doing too much because since working I've lost an abundance of weight and hardly ever sleep my doctor shows no concern and encourages me to keep working but my husband is concerned and wants me to get daycare during the day so I can sleep and relax but Im not sure we have the money to afford it idk should i bite the bullet and get one until the baby is here? I'm confused....

Sounds like this is a decision you and your husband need to make together...You have a lot on your plate and you need to keep yourself healthy for you your children and your unborn baby ..maybe compromise and send them a few days a week for a few hrs so you can enjoy some "me" time...I understand your need to spend time with them..I hardly ever leave my kids besides for work....The happier and healthier you are...the better for your kids..  :)
