So... I'm unemployed. That's a bad thing, and while I'd love to be a SAHM, its not financially in the cards. A friend of mine mentioned his work is hiring- Its an overnight (eleven pm to seven am) shelf stocking job, part time hours. The thing I need advice on is is it feasible to go from a daytime awake cycle to a third shift awake cycle while pregnant?
The second thing is, does it even make sense to take a job doing this? Its at a Christmas Tree Shop, so while there are some furniture pieces, the items are mostly light. I'm told that the furniture things are moved by the guys (I asked him what protocol was for that, he said the guys fight for it. I was looking for 2 person lifts or what not.)
It goes without saying that I'll be asking my OB/Midwife tomorrow at my regularly scheduled appointment, but I could use some advice from people who have been pregnant before, and possibly anyone who has worked third shift before.
Third shift is tempting, because I'd be able, theoretically, to do without daycare expenses, while DH is finishing his masters in education, and possibly even long term, while he teaches. My gut instinct here is to hold out for second shift, because I need dark to sleep, but the UI runs out in May unless I find some part time work to extend it.
So what do y'all think? Don't worry about hurting my feelings on this, Its a war between an obligation (to get off of UI ASAP) and the expectation that I won't be useful at this job come December.
