  • so yesterday i had a shift bartending at the bar i work at. I am usually on the schedule 2 times a month, so its been fine. However with needing money i told them to put me on whenever. they have a huge xmas part y for the members and the kids with food, songs and santa. so we are going to that on the 9th of december. its the same day as mikes work kids xmas party, so we will do both, and they asked me to bartend the party so i will be working that long day, which i am fine with because mike will have Ava at the party so i can be with her and make money.

    However, while working yesterday a family came in to book their Xmas party, about 100 people, all a bunch of drinkers! I have done all their parties in the past, and could walk away with a good couple hundred bucks for a 5 hour function. SO they asked me if I would work their party again, and i said yes. the catch is that its December 22nd, so 2 weeks away from my delivery date. Was the a dumb thing to do. I am thinking money and dollar bills, but I am gonna be so sore, and could this put me in lablr if i do too much? iTs a lot of bending and running back and forth. I just remember how sore i was after the halloween party, but i hate to say no when we are desperate for money. I would hate to go int o labor then because I would miuss Ava's first good and fun Xmas

    Should i rethink this, or just do it. Brandi, could strenuous stuff put me into an early labor, it would be 37 weeks so not too early, but i need advice

  • Can you remember how you felt at that time with Ava? I know at 38 weeks I painted our bathroom and did a bunch of stuff in a couple days and I didn't go early but you know your body and what you can handle. Hopefully some of the other ladies can help out more
    Tough decision

    I got a burst of energy right before I had Benjamin, of course, I was induced, so it could have just been nesting. You would be considered full term at the time, so as long as there would be no harm to Gavin, I think I would do it, to help pay bills, and you said you wouldn't mind him coming before the New Year and would actually prefer it??

  • I was thinking the same thing. I would get bursts of energy in those last weeks...but I think it was centered around baby stuff.
    Can you find someone who can fill in for you just in case your not feeling up to it?

  • Yeah, maybe getting a backup to cover you just in case. I think I would push myself to do it, but that's just me, lets see what Brandi has to say.
