Starting Business While Pregnant

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey girls! Have any of you started a business while being pregnant?

The reason I ask is because DH and I have received an opportunity to take over distribution of RTM and Modular homes. This eventually (within the year), be quite a large business with numerous employees.

I am finding it quite stressful even though I am trying not to be stressed but lets face it, setting up a large company like this is bound to be stressful.

If you have done something like this while being pregnant, what did you do to try and keep your sanity?

To those of you who know me on Fbook, could you please not mention it there as we aren't telling friends and family until it is finalized next week. Thanks

No advice but wow that sounds exciing and stressful! If it's something that you really want to do, I don't see any reason why you shouldn't go for it! Hopefully your husband just realizes he might be shouldering a lot of the load so you canconcentrate on your babies at first good luck!

Congrats to you

I've been working as an accountant and consultant. Now, I'm ready to make that leap to work on my own. However, my husband and I are also ready to have children.
So scared not because of the work hours; but because of stress that I may put upon on my baby due to the work hours.
Any advice about starting a business and being new mom.

What? Wait... I am confused. Are you pregnant? in the back of my mind, I was thinking that you guys were done having kiddos, but maybe I am wrong...

In any case, congrats on the business opportunity and (maybe?) being pregnant?!?

Haha this is an OLD thread. The business has been started and we have grown like crazy since opening in April. We went from a home based business run by my husband and I to a company with an office and 9 employees (excluding DH and I) in 6 months. So far it is going exactly as I expected when I wrote this thread. Oh and my little man is now almost 11 weeks old
