"At home job for single mommies"

I know this is a long shot BUT does anyone know of any "At home" jobs for single moms?

I am 34 weeks and 3 days and I don't feel like I can last much longer at my job (even though it is an office job)  

Also, I can not grasp the concept of sending me 5 WEEK OLD daughter to a daycare :( sadly, it's my only option.

Any ideas or suggestions for me?

I'm a full time work at home mom. I can't say I make very much compared to my old office job but I've held up my reputation as a designer for some time. I was a designer for interior architecture and industrial CAD specialist. I also did freelance photography, so when I'm not in the office I'm outside shooting. Then I got preggo, and my office had no idea. What they did notice was my "lack of performance" and I still wouldn't tell them what was up, and eventually I got laid off. So I collected unemployment and used what money I had to invest in this other hobby that I've been working on the side (aside from freelance photography) to turn it into a business. It started off small and very slow, but with help of social media and word of mouth, I was able to build more traffic into my website. I also signed up with Etsy the following year since I often work with my hands. I love building stuff, so I'm experienced in woods hop tools, welding and soldering, graphic designing, and crafting stuff from piles of scraps.  I am now selling products that I make from home both locally and internationally. Compared to last year I went from $400/yr and jumped my gross to $5k/mo. If you want any advice on being able to work from home or pursuing your own business, it would be to take risks and have a lot of patience and motivation (lots of it!!). I make wedding hangers and wearable accessories for one business, and design custom graphics and DIY solutions in another--I provide for both weddings and home lifestyle industries. If it's what you love and you're good at it, go for it! If you are interested in working under a business remotely, my advice would be to call or email the applicable company and request for a remote position. If by any chance you can locate the hr or director of the business, even better!

I have a job that enables me to work from home but the reality that many people don't understand is you cannot work and take care of the child at the same time. If you do you are not giving one of the two your all. I have to take my daughter to daycare or else I'd never get anything done.
