Pregnancy & Birth Clubs <

Hey ya'll. My husband and I are expecting our first child April 3rd (4 days before my birthday!). I currently work at Starbucks as a supervisor. I loved my job-until I got pregnant. I am the one that everyone else counts on to know the standards, to help develop my peers, and to ensure the store is top knotch. I was recently transferred to a different store because they are experiencing some struggles, and my previous manager thought I was just the person to help get this store into shape. Its a tough battle here, more than I anticipated, but I love a challenge. Anywho...fast forward a few weeks, and here I am almost 8 weeks pregnant. I had to take the last 2 weeks off due to an old injury flaring up, and then their was some concern about the health of our baby. Thankfully, we did an ultrasound last week, saw the heartbeat, and all is well. =-)
I start work again tomorrow, I have already requested a bump down to 4 days a wekk instead of 5 or 6, but thats still 32/hours a week. I am always tired, always nauseous (no throwing up, just always quiesy), and I just don't have the energy or the motivation to go to work and fight to get this store together. Seriously considering quitting, even though I know it would put my husband and I in a difficult position financially temporarily. I saw all this to ask, how are you ladies managing? Its a very busy environment, so taking more than the standard breaks isn't a possibility. And I am on my feet all day 8/hours a day. Can't exactly fake it when I am surrounded by people and have to have a constant smile on my face. Any advice ladies?! I really need it!!!
