Why is it so hard to find a pregnant career woman?

Introduction

I’ve been pregnant for a little over two years, but it’s hard to imagine I’d ever leave my house.

I’ve spent the majority of my time at work as an assistant at a tech company.

I’m a single mother with four young children.

I work in the same office as the woman I have been pregnant with for the past two years.

She’s also a single mom.

But my life has changed.

Now, it’s difficult to find an empty-nester pregnant career-woman.

The answer is: They don’t exist. 

When I first became pregnant, I was told that if I wanted a career, I’d need to be a full-time mother.

This seemed obvious, but I was convinced it was a myth.

So, I didn’t even bother looking.

I figured I’d just give it another six months and see if it would change. 

I’m still here.

And I’m still pregnant.

I am still married to my husband. 

While I’ve gone from single-parent home to married mother to full-fledged mother, my experience has been that, like many other women, my expectations are incredibly low.

If I wanted to be more than a mother, I had to be willing to sacrifice something in return.

The idea that a career was somehow going to come with these extra sacrifices seemed impossible. 

If I wanted an easy life, I couldn’t have children, and I couldn.

I couldn, at the same time, work full-timably, and not have to worry about the occasional pregnancy or the fact that my career was at risk.

It wasn’t until my second pregnancy that I had the idea that this is what I was going to have to do. 

In the months that followed, I started feeling like I had a little more freedom to pursue my dreams and work full time, without worrying about the future.

I started making a list of the things I needed to do in order to have the best career possible, so I wouldn’t be in this precarious situation of being a single parent. 

One day, I asked my husband, “Is it going to be easy to find someone who’s pregnant and doesn’t have kids?”

He laughed and said, “Yeah, but not hard.

I know a lot of people.” 

I knew I had my work cut out for me.

I’d been pregnant myself, but the idea of not being able to have kids was overwhelming. 

Then I saw that there were women who were pregnant who didn’t have jobs and didn’t want to be single parents.

And so I started thinking about what it would take for me to make that happen. 

It started with a simple question: Is it possible to have a career without having children? 

And so I began researching the issues and talking to other pregnant women.

I learned that the average woman who goes through the experience of having a baby has three years of experience, and she has the time to build her career. 

This is a major obstacle to getting pregnant.

It’s not a question of being able, but of being willing to work.

If you want to have children with your partner, you have to work as hard as you possibly can.

If your partner is a full time job, then the work isn’t as much of a priority. 

But for women who want to go into the workforce, having children is a huge deal. 

Women in the workforce can expect to work long hours, and there are significant financial and emotional barriers to doing so. 

Being a single-mother and being in the labor market means you’re often in the position of deciding between being a stay-at-home mom, working part-time, or a fulltime parent.

The most difficult part of being pregnant is that, when you get to a point where you are pregnant, you don’t have the flexibility to do other things. 

So, I began thinking about the different ways that I could give up on the idea I’d have to be pregnant to have that career.

I knew I’d like to do more of what I love, so in order for me, working full time in the industry, to be an option for me I needed something to give up. 

“It’s a lot easier to have babies than it is to be on your feet when you’re pregnant.” 

The first idea that came to mind was to work part-timily while having the baby.

I had heard that, if you work part time, it helps you to keep up with your responsibilities, which are the same ones you would have in a full job.

I was skeptical.

But I figured it might be easier to give that up when you are not pregnant. 

At the same, I wasn’t sure that I would be able to get a full paycheck while pregnant.

So I thought of something different.

I considered making my monthly pay less than the amount I
