I just sat down to create our family budget for
I just sat down to create our family budget for after the baby is born and I'm really shocked at how everything adds up. Anyone else feel like having a child is insanely expensive? I've looked over our budget a few times and tried to cut it down to the basics but I think we might have to go into credit card debt to afford daycare....I'm feeling really frustrated and wondering if its worth continuing to work. Anyone else quit b/c of finances?
I am currently 36 weeks pregnant and gearing up to go on maternity leave at the end of the month. I recently came across a new job oppurnity that would be better for my family. I'm at the finishing stages of interviewing with this new company and I am worried that I will find out I got the job while on maternity leave. My question is, what happens to my maternity benefits and how do I go about leaving my current job without issue?
I recently came back to work after my maternity leave. It's a busy job, and I've been squeezing in pumping breaks in between meetings. Yesterday, my coworker actually asked to come into the pumping room to discuss a project since she couldn't find time on my calendar. How do I explain that this is NOT OK?!
My husband is completely oblivious to the fact that while we both work long days, I tend to be the one staying up to wash bottles and get everything ready for daycare the next day, while he is relaxing on the couch. It's hard enough keeping up with everything, but now I'm getting resentful. How do I make him realize this just isn't right?
I've always prioritized my career, but I'm starting to feel like I won't feel as committed to it once I have my baby. Should I be worried about losing my ambition?
