Is there anyone who didn't have a job before getting pregnant?

I understand that most people on here quit their jobs to stay home. I want to know if there's anyone who didn't work before they became a stay at home mom. When I got pregnant for the first time, I was 17 and didn't have a job. That was 11 years ago and I haven't worked since.

I worked for about 2 weeks before I quit to be a stay at home :P I got pregnant just out of highschool, but didn't realize it until December when I was about 6mo along. I had just started the training for a job, was 2 weeks in, started having some (relatively minor) complications, and some not so minor uncomfortable-ness. So I talked to my hubby and quit to stay at home.

I figured I wasn't going to get enough hours to qualify for maternity anyways, and in less than 2 months, I wouldn't fit behind the desk any more :P

I now have 2 children, aged 3.5 and 1.5 yrs and don't plan on going to work for the forseeable future :P
