Hello, Dakira! I totally get what you’re saying - “I don't feel confident as i am not earning.” However, in my opinion, investing in our children’s life is so important, and I believe that there is nothing more better for a child than to have their mom stay at home and nurture them, especially during their formative years. May God bless you and grant you wisdom and guidance as you look to Him for every need.

If you can afford not to work then stay at home. If you need to work then find a more suitable job.
We really can give advice on your situation as we don't know if your family can survive on just your husband's income.
In regards to your in-laws, they have no say in how you and your husband decide to live. It doesn't matter if they live with you or not.

Well if they live with you, I wouldn't worry too much about their opinion no offense. You just do your part on your own little family and it'll get better. But if you living with them than I would consider looking for a side job at least so they font think you are lazy. I went through the same stuff with my parents when i was pregnant with my 1st.
