My husband is also in the military and financially we are more set now than we ever have been. Head totally fine with me staying home. Generally I don't do much but I make sure our son gets all his school stuff done do the cleaning and cooking. His hours are weird and he works 72 and 48 hour shifts so I prefer to make sure everything is taken care of so he can come home and relax.
My husband is military. I've actually stayed home since I moved across the country to be with him 6 years ago. I tried to transfer within my company but they were in a hiring freeze and I don't speak Spanish so it was too hard to fund a job. Now we're in a smaller town with very few jobs so I stay home with our 3.5 year old and am pregnant with #2. I do take online classes though and should be finished with my bachelor's degree next December
I'm a stay at home preggers (:
I've been a stay at home wife since month three of my pregnancy. it started taking a toll on me so we both agreed i shouldn't work. my fiance loves having me home so much that he doesnt even want me to go back after she is born.
Wish I could but will have to go back to work after about 4 weeks. My husband lost a good paying job not too long ago so at this time I am making a lot more money.
I'm a homemaker! Love it!
Yes, I am. I have been for nearly 8 years. It's extremely challenging at times, but very rewarding. I have a 6 1/2, 5 1/2 & 10 month old and due with #4 in March. I consider it to be a blessing for our family. :)
I am. I've been out of work since last year because I had a bad ankle that resulted in surgery then got pregnant and still couldn't return, my fiance really don't want me to work but I've always been a worker and miss it at times! I may eventually look into something part time just to get me out of the house
I am so far 2years. It can be degrading at times. I'm 8 weeks with a 2 yr old and a 7 yr old. SO literally works eats sleeps and that's all no help!
I was for four years with my first two children... im pregnant now and working. I will take personal leave when I have the baby and fo back a couple months later..because financially I have to :(
so glad to hear some mothers feel the same way i do! Been a stay at home mom since my son was born..he is now 2 and we are expecting him to have a sister in febuary! love being a stay at home mom:)
I work full time now but my husband really wants me to be able to be a stay at home mom (just found out we're pregnant with our first). I would count it a huge blessing if I am able to...i think it's really looked down upon now a days. That's sad. I hate the idea of someone else raising my child...what's the point of that? No judgment on working moms though. That's difficult too and I applaud you.
I am! And proud of it! My husband works for the sheriff's department. So with his crazy hours and if I did work then I would never see him.
I will be returing to work after a month or two off ..Its too costly around here not too
I stayed home while my husband worked and payed the bills for 2 years then worked for maybe a year and then stayed home again. I'm in school 4 days a week though so it's not the same. :( Miss my little man. Going to stay home atleast 6 or more months with this little man then will start working. Can't see me not working and helping my family when I would be making $23-25 an hour. Wish I could stay home longer though.. ×(
Have his dinner ready for him* stupid phone!
I am I'm 27 pregnant with our third son. When we got together I was a single working mom of a 21 month old. But my husband is super old fashioned and I.love it about him. We had been best friends for years before we started dating he even came to.my first baby shower. So we knew from day one we wanted all the Same things. We got together in may 2012 I way pregnant by August when my.oldest turned 2. We got married that Halloween and bought our first house that November. Now.I'm pregnant. With our third boy. I do have my rn but I hated it. So we have ten acres and we grow all our own veggies and have chickens and goats. So we save big that way. It's awesome to have a man that wants me to stay home and take care.of.our babies. In my.option it's my job go keep the house clean laundry done and have Ghana did need ready correct him. He deserves it bc he does everything for us and busts his butt. :-)
I am :)
Currently pregnant with baby no.2
I would be working through the pregnancy and ten taking off but I am a teacher and high risk so figured the stress wasn't worth the risk to baby. I plan on staying at home as long as possible with this and any future babies. I was raised by a stay at home dad while my mom worked. It was nice to know he would be there is I got sick at school or needed anything. Also @Camille, a black eye is considered a head injury at most daycares. They should have called you and filed an accident report. Even if they didnt see it happen there should have been a report an a call (worked as a vpk teacher and a floater in a daycare for six years)
I use to work, but I put my 6 month old in child care and he came home with a black eye... with NO explanation... the center acted as if they didn't know what happened.. so I've decided to stay home with each of my kids until they start school. I have a 10 year old 7 & 4year old.. now preggo again.. and getting my tubes tied... sooooo... I hope to work in 5 years...
Right now i am. But i dont intendbit to stay that way. i was raised to be independent and be able to support myself. So i plan on getting a jib as soon as i can. I love my little girl and i wanna spend all the time in the world with her when she gets here. But i also wanna be able to afford to support her and myself if it was needed(:
Im married and my husband dont want me to work just wont me to stay home and get my education I just do on line classes an iam fine with that
I'm a stay at home pregnancy lol my boyfriend makes enough that we're fine. Its our first and ever since we found out I'm pregnant, I've had an irrarional fear of losing the baby. So, I stay here and do home stuff and after the baby is born, I'll go back to college. :)
