I have just found out I'm pregnant with baby number 4. I have been a stay home mum since we had our third (2.5yrs) with the older two I worked full time as a single mum.
We have had The WORST year financially just all these things happening and all money we had has gone and we are having a hard time Re-saving so the news of the fourth has floored my husband.
The plan was I would finish my nursing next semester and work next year however my husband has now asked how I plan on doing that since we can't afford daycare and will have a newborn to which I said I'd finish and then work six months later but he knows that the only thing driving that is finances as I LOVE been at home with my kids. I do feel like I need to be doing more to contribute financially as when we are having these struggles I feel useless and before this I was always independent.
He doesn't want me to finish he said maybe in six years when I have all kids in school I can go back and start again to which I just think more hecs debt!!
I just don't know what to do I am torn by two different paths
Has anyone ever been in this sort of position? What did you do? How did you cope? Was your choice the right choice?
