I’m 17 weeks pregnant and I absolutely despise my job. I’m a waitress and I realized after working yesterday after my manager cut down my tables to just 3 tables all because she had her ass on her shoulders that we weren’t moving fast enough even tho the restaurant was packed it was time for me to find something else. When I have my baby I won’t get paid for the weeks I miss. So I can’t think of any other reason why I should stay here when I can get a different job and paid more and get the things my baby would need instead of depending on customers and praying they are in a good mood in order to leave out of there with a little over $200 a week in tips. That may seem like a lot but my check at the most is usually about $50 with 36 hours on it.
Quoting SciFiMama91: Do you have any call centers near you? They hire pregnant people like crazy. When I worked at one there were like 50 pregnant women that had just started. Lol

I can't imagine waitressing while pregnant :-( If you can find a temp office job, that would be nice. Also, you can always apply to drive for UBER. A good friend is doing that in suburbs and is making about $750/week. He delivers packages, food, and of course drives people :-)

$200/week may seem like a lot?? No, it doesn’t at all.
Many employers are reluctant to hire pregnant women, so I wouldn’t quit your job until you have a new one lined up.
