So I am almost 10 weeks pregnant, and naturally my bf and I have been discussing things like my mat leave, his mat leave, etc. And he brought up that he feels he needs a second job. Not right now but in a few months, to help us save some money. Well I am glad he is concerned about things like that, it is a good attitude to have i guess, but also I keep thinking, if he gets a second job I will be left all alone for the last few months of my pregnancy, when it will be the most difficult for me even doing simple daily tasks. Since I am super tiny the dr has said it will be quite difficult for me just getting around, not just out and about for errands but even just around my house. What If I am at home alone and I need something I can't reach?? I cant reach alot, since I am 4'9". We have a small apartment so we have to store some things out of my reach, which normally I would just hop on a chair or the counter, but obviously that won't happen once I can hardly move around.Not to mention its not safe. Or what If I drop something, or can't get myself off the couch....I'll be all alone. He already has a good job, he is a chef for the Fairmont Chateau. He makes almost $20 and hour and will be recieving another raise or two before the baby is even born. I won't be working right up until a week or so prior to having the baby either, I will most likely be taking mat leave 3 months or so early. We live in the mountains and in the winter it will be near impossible for me to get around easily and safely. I expressed my concerns to him, but he just keeps saying "what else are we supposed to do for money?" In the last month we already have $1000 saved up. I am really not that concerened financially. We know we can save alot of money quickly if need be, we've done it in the past when we moved across the country. What should I do? I feel like he will be abandoning me and leaving me to fend for myself when I am as huge as a house!
