Texas Babies

Don't know where to begin...

I'm 29 weeks along, measuring a week a head of time so 30 weeks. This is our first so everything has been a bit of a challenge. I feel like I haven't really had a chance to truly enjoy this pregnancy like I should have. I guess its really because of all the major changes going on in our lives with the soon to be baby boy we are so excited about. 

Cory, my soon to be Husband, lost his job a few months ago (was working for a State Farm Ins. Agent) and has been vigorously looking since then for a new one. But we really haven't had any luck. In the mean time, we're stuck living at his Nana's (which is a small trailer) on his parent's "ranch". Which has been, I feel, one of the main contributors to my added stress levels. So much so that my OB even asked us if everything was going ok and that I didn't look like my normal Happy Bubbley self, and I burst into tears right then and there! lol Its looking more and more like we are going to end up having to move in with my parents back in Houston and for Cory to go work for my dad, an experienced State Farm Agent, which really wouldn't be so bad except for me having to give up the ONE thing I really am passionate about in my life. My horses, and potentially my beloved German Shepherd.

We've been praying really hard that something would come along that would pay enough for us to be able to live and have benefits for the baby. But it just seems like God has other plans for us right now. I sure wish he would let me in on just what those plans are! In the mean time I feel like I have been on an emotional roller coaster, smiling one minute and waterfalls coming down my face the next!

If anyone has any ideas for us PLEASE mention something! Thanks so much!

  • I wish I had a good job lead for you or some sage advice.  I just wanted to offer ((hugs)). I won't bore you with the details, but I am a few days ahead of you in my first pregnancy and I am relocating from Dallas to be with my DH in San Antonio soon.  I am also leaving a lot behind, and I go through swings of anger and acceptance.  Take it one minute at a time and work on a plan to get back to where ever you want to be.   Has he tried a place like Lowes, Home Depot, Costco....  the pay is better than most retailers and they have good benefits.  Other than that, just keep pumping out the resumes and networking like crazy.  Good luck!
    Years of trying and treatment, IVF#1 brought us our darling C!
  • I am so sorry you are going through this. One thing I know for sure, everything is going to be alright. Back in 2006 DH and I both lost our jobs in Florida, with that we lost our house, cars, etc. We relocated to San Antonio in 2007 and it has been an emotional rollercoaster, but God has always been us and has never left our side. I am not pregnant (yet) but I can imagine that the stress is even more intense, but hang in there. After coming to SA and getting settled in, DH and I lost our jobs again.... I mean this economy and job market is CRAZY, but we HAVE made it through and so will you.

    I don't have any job leads, but I agree with deb, apply at places like Costco, Target also pay very well.....

     I will keep you in my prayers!
