Hi i am an expectant single mom of two about to go through my divorce and recently got laid off. I am looking for whatever i can find in the job market that will take a 23 week pregnant woman. I have tried all i can and have had no luck at all even though i am a full time accounting student with great references, am a Texas Notary Public and am fully billingual in both spanish and english. I need help ladies i am at a point where i will take all advice.

two young boys 4 and 20 months the father is trying to help but he isnt much help at all because he has problems with law enforcement.

Working from home can be a great way to earn an income. I work for a company that also allows my income to be a residual income. If you would like to listen to an overview call that will give you a good idea of what is involved, call me.

I would highly suggest Collections or Customer service for one of the local credit agencies. Chase, GMAC, etc are always looking for reps and especially billingual reps. The work isn't exactly fun, but it typically pays well, is a bit flexible, and offers benefits.

As an aside- NEVER EVER volunteer that you are pregnant. It might be technically illegal for them to descriminate against you for it, but they will. For your interview, avoid form fitting clothing as well.

you may want to look on craigs list for some type of book keeping job you can do from home. a lot of smaller businesses need help with that and if you know quickbooks that could be a plus. good luck!

Being Billingual is a huge plus. Think of service agencies.....banks, etc who need this type of service.

If you are really good at it, tutor some children and teach them Spanish.

Go through your school..you are a student.. the guidance counselor should have some ideas for you as well.

I don't mean to sound personal but what about support from dad? Isn't he held accountable for some expenses?

You don't say how old your 2 children are....if they are in school...be a teacher's assistant and help teach Spanish.

Try also temp agencies, they can place you and that job may lead to a permanent job. Best wishes and God bless!

Hi R.,
I know that you are worried how you are going to sustain your family. I remember that when I got laid off, the people from unemployment said that if you were pregnant you were able to get health insurance thru them. I think it was thru CHIP.

Have you tried looking at Home-based businesses? I know that Tupperware doesn't care how pregnant you are, actually it helped me sell more the two times I have been pregnant in their company. I'd be happy to help you get started.

I work from home for the last 8 years and love what I do. If you are open to it, I will be very happy to share and help you get started and work with you, this will also give you time freedom to be with your children while earning income.

Let me know and I wish you all the best.
