I’m currently almost 36 weeks, and recently my SO got a job out of town. This job doesn’t necessarily have a set schedule, and he’s usually out of service for weeks. My dad has recently been going through depression again, And I’m still working between 70-90hr/ 2 weeks. I’m insanely exhausted, lonely, sick, sore… and I’m very torn. I want him to keep working, as I’ve been the only one with a job for months, so it would really help out. However, with everything going on, me being so far along in the pregnancy, etc… I’m almost tempted to ask him to stay in for the next few weeks. I really want him to be there for the birth, but I also know I’m insanely selfish because he could be providing for my kid. I don’t know what to do. I’m going crazy! Please, advice/thoughts?
Maybe boss give him 2days off for the birth? He can ask don’t hurt.Make a birth plan with your Dr.they can help u.
You are just asking for stress. FMLA he has a right to be off.
Let him work and be the provider. Its a new job. Maybe see if he can find a non traveling job before he quits that one.
QUIT work just bc you’re about to give birth?? No. Your family needs a job for support…
I’m a caregiver of you help around the house or companion or running errands PM me
He needs a job to provide
If he just got a job not to long ago might not be the best idea for him to ask for a few weeks off. Ask your dad or maybe someone that youd like to come stay for a week or so with you. You said it your self that your being selfish. If he takes time off work he might have to choose work or you. Let him work so you guys have a income coming I’m and not get hella behind on Bill’s and crap.
No ,to quit work.
Pregnant mothers don’t need a babysitter they need a cell phone handy…
How about ask yr dad to stay with you so yr both not lonely and there is someone there for you if you go early. Gives him purpose
He can get FMLA. My girl bout to give birth to. I request off to because I cant miss the first 3 month.
