Hi every one,

I am currently 26 weeks pregnant and just started a new job working night shift. I already have a full time job in the morning from 7am to 4pm and this new one gets 8 hours of my evening - that is 10pm to 6am.

I feel like I need to do this to be able to financially support myself, my family and our coming bundle of joy. Will this decision cause any harm to my baby? I feel a little light headed around 7am to 10am but usually gets better specially after a nice meal.

Would really like to know what you think about this. Thank you so much.
