Work outside the home?

If you work outside the home, what do you do for a living?
I'm a high school English teacher. I absolutely love what I do. Perfect schedule for a mom. I get all the holidays off. Plus, teenagers are ridiculous and hilarious!
I have no idea how I'm going to survive being pregnant all year! Last time I got pregnant in February and had the whole summer to relax and prepare for the baby.

I'm an elementary teacher and PreK-12 school librarian.  This year I'll be working as a long-term sub (at least through 1st semester) at a private classical school teaching 2nd & 3rd grade.  It will be interesting as I've never taught in a classical setting before, but it looks like lots of fun too!  I'll have less than 10 students which is just amazing! :-)

I'll be off Wednesday to do homework and get some rest when needed. I'll probably do online classes or take e spring semester off.

My husband is Air Force and we are stationed in Germany. I work as a Secretary for the DoD. I just started about 7 weeks ago. So far, it's a pretty easy job, kind of boring at times, compared to my last job. I intend to come back to work after I have the baby. Gotta pay for daycare x 3 somehow :-) But my oldest gets to go to kindergarten next year so only I'll only have triple daycare for about 5 months, thank goodness!

I am an Early Intervdntion Specialist, teaching children under the age of three who have developmental delays, or other special needs.  I focus on Developmetal Therapy.  I love what I what I do, and hope we can pull off paying two daycare fees so I can go back after my maternity leave.

I am an Animal Control Officer. I work for the local PD in a small town around 6000 people. I have one very PT kennel assistant who will be headed to college in Aug. Thus I will be the full time ACO, Shelter Manager and kennel attendant.

I love my job. And here I have it pretty nice, I don't work weekends or holidays. However, once my kennel attendant leaves I will have to clean the shelter on the weekends. I am also always on call. But its a great job... other then irresponsible people! :smileyhappy:

I'm a middle school science teacher. I teach 7th grade Biology and I love it!!! Biology is such a cool subject to me. And 7th graders, OMGEEZ.....are so fun.....albeit challenging with hormones all over the place!! I'm also struggling with how am I going to make it through the year being pregnant. Middle schoolers have to be watched constantly, you would be amazed at how quickly their little minds can come up with something outrageous to do!!

I'm an RN.  I work for a healthcare agency that places CNA's and home health aids in patients home's or assisted living facilities.  The nurse goes out to do an initial assessment and to create a care plan customized for that patient.  I then do follow up visits and case manage.  It's a great job!  I'm hoping to continue working per diem after the baby arrives but not right away.
