I've never posted something like this but just feel so desperate for a little help that I thought I'd ask for any prayers and pixie dust. Today I was given a layoff notice from the library where I've worked 6 years. I was bumped from someone in a different department within the city. I'm also 4 months pregnant and I just feel completely overwhelmed. Thank you in advance for your support.
First, let me give you a ((hug)). Second, you will get through this tough time. You need to dig deep and find strength for your baby. If you have a place to stay, food in your tummy, people who love you, you are blessed! You will prevail and win this battle! Pray for guidance, strength, and a path to peace!

Thank you, it's so strange to feel lucky and like a hot mess all in one breath. I appreciate your kind words! - LisaMouse7531  410.1 #461 6-27-12 8:22PM

Very nice statement and very thoughtful!!! So true. Prayers and pixie dust on the way! - BrerRabbit  347.1 #595 6-27-12 8:30PM
I'm so sorry to hear about your job. :( However, maybe it's a blessing. You'll have some time to take care of yourself during your pregnancy, and not worry about maternity leave (you'll be on unemployment then disability then unemployment). You may end up with more time with your sweet baby. When the time is right something better will come along. Keep your chin up. Hugs. - Mrs.mouse   515.8 #346 6-27-12 8:11PM Like(3)  Reply
Just like tiana says, "trials and tribulations, I've had my share," u will see it gets better, keep ur head up, positive thoughts and have faith in knowing that things always happen for a reason! Sending a little pixie dust your way for good measure. βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨πŸ‘ - PanPiratePoppyCock   226.3 #1516 6-28-12 1:27AM Like(2)  Reply
Sending prayers your way. You are stronger than you think. Everything will work out. Remember...*~*~*~*~...When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are. Anything your heart desires will come to you....Like a bolt out of the blue, fate steps in and sees you through. When you wish upon a star your dreams come true.~*~*~*:) - Alicewhoareyou   1053.5 #140 6-27-12 9:34PM Like(1)  Reply

My oldest sister went through a very similar situation when she was pregnant with my beautiful niece. She also had no support from the father and it was very overwhelming for her. All I can tell you is to stay strong, positive, persistent, and enjoy the new blessing coming into your life. Things will get better than you could ever imagine. Everything happens for a reason😊. I'll say a special one for youπŸ™ - ScubaSteve028   835.7 #180 6-27-12 9:57PM Like(1)  Reply
I'm Sorry to hear you are going through this. Being bumped out of a position is not a fun situation. I really hope you are able to find something bigger and better for you. I will be sending lots of pixie dust and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. πŸ™βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨πŸ™ - Aurora_2020   260.1 #1124 6-28-12 8:17AM Like(1)  Reply
First children are blessings from God. Congratulations! Secondly believe God in all your heart & never stop believing that God has a plan for your life, you may not realize this now but God will make a way where there is no way. May God keep you strong & healthy. :) - Eeyorelvr   107.0 #3272 6-28-12 8:22AM Like(1)  Reply

Everything is going to work out okay! It's true that God works in mysterious ways and I know it may seem hard now but just believe there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Keep your head up and I promise everything is going to work out okay. ((hugs!!)) - AshleyLynn22   791.2 #195 6-27-12 8:37PM Like  Reply

I will definitely be sending prayers and pixie dust!! I was fired from my job of 5 years at 35weeks pregnant and was gjven no reasoning for it. Everything will work itself out! Be strong for your precious bundle of joy :) feel free to dm me if you wanna talk! - MrsDisneyMommy29   280.3 #924 6-27-12 9:25PM Like  Reply
Big BIG HUG!! My best friend experienced something very similar with her first child. It was so tough for her to be positive but with the support of her family and husband she made it through. She was a teacher and when she found out she was devestated. But being forced to wait it out she was able to bond with her child and when she was ready she found subbing to help her. I'm sure you have many that love and support you and will help you in whatever you need. Yaks this as a blessing, a new beginning to a new stage/phase in your life. We are here if you need anything - MarshaMouse   4040.6 #23 6-27-12 9:25PM Like  Reply
I got laid off from my teaching job when I was dour months pregnant. I ended up getting to stay home with my son for 9 months! It was the best thing that ever happened to be and I will probably never get to stay home with another child. Look for the positives...you can draw unemployment (you've been paying into it for years) and be a mommy! Congrats and good luck! - DLlovingMommy27   238.0 #1368 6-27-12 9:28PM Like  Reply

I am so sorry! It is so hard at first, the shock and the worry is overwhelming. Just breathe and don't stress too much. I've lost my job a few times, the first right after having my son, but I ended up being able to stay home with him and that was absolutely the happiest time of my life. - PinkElephants   745.4 #212 6-27-12 9:31PM Like  Reply
I hope it all works out.....I was in a similar situation when I had to leave my job, that same week I had just found out I was pregnant! I'm sure it will all be okay everything falls into place. Keep strong and remember you have a beautiful baby on the way and no stress is worth stressing over with this baby on board. =D - Jackie211   472.7 #385 6-27-12 9:37PM Like  Reply

I was laid off when I was four months pregnant, but since I hated my job at the time, I looked at it more as a two year vacation with partial pay. Regardless of whether you look for work immediately or not, keep your chin up. The most important thing in your life right now is your baby. - LittleAprilShowers   557.1 #305 6-27-12 10:01PM Like  Reply
My job was eliminated and I was there for over 10 years! But now I have something alot better. I was never pregnant, but I think when one door closes another door opens. Find strength in your family and just think about your baby. - Sharkgrrl19   228.7 #1492 6-27-12 10:07PM Like  Reply
I'm so sorry! I know the feeling of fear. I was fired when I was pregnant with my first child because I turned in their top commodity traders for sexual harassment. (yes gross)That was bad enough (even though I just wanted to sleep anyway) but then the dealership my husband worked for closed after lying that it was rumors. It was really tough, but we had eachother. Two weeks before the baby was born he got a job offer and stayed with them for almost 20 years and 2 more kids. My point, hang in there, be happy for that baby and things tend to happen for a reason. (((hugs))) - SueBayou   2019.4 #57 6-27-12 10:14PM Like  Reply
Wow, I am amazed at the number of women laid off or fired when pregnant. Coincidence?? πŸ˜‰ I was fired with no warning when I was about three months pregnant. Normally, no unemployment when fired but I appealed it based on wrongful termination and won! I, too, was alone and it was a scary time. Things worked out, though! I will send prayers your way!!! - PeachKay   311.1 #738 6-27-12 10:24PM Like  Reply

I can't DM cuz I'm less than 10 but if u want to try to contact me let me know. I'm a librarian in the So Cal area and maybe I can help out. I'm guessing u were in a public library cuz u mentioned "city." I'm academic but worked public for awhile Maybe I can help somehow. πŸ˜‰ I know long beach and Anaheim PL have openings. - PickyPicky   14.7 #7355 6-28-12 3:24AM Like  Reply
Thank you so much, I live in the central valley though. Used to live in Long Beach, love it down there. We bought our first hour last October so we aren't able to relocate. I truly appreciate your help though. I worked in an academic library all four years in college and have been at a public library the past 6. Not really sure what to do. Thank you though! - LisaMouse7531  410.1 #461 6-28-12 4:06AM

Wow! I am opposite u! I started public than changed to academic! And I graduated 6 years ago! I miss public tho! Don't worry! I'm sure you will get something. You have the experience and sounds like its more than the newbies coming out of school right now. - PickyPicky  14.7 #7355 6-28-12 8:05AM
Hugs Hugs Hugs. I can so empathize with your situation. My daughter just gave birth to a new baby girl and has a 3 year old son. They are selling the house they are renting and are being forced to look for a new place. She is a teacher and struggles financially so it is very difficult finding a rental she can afford. If there is anything I can do to help you let me know. The mw family is very supportive and loving, I know things can look bleak at times but I know things will look brighter soon. - CaptnSparrow   632.0 #264 6-28-12 6:30AM Like  Reply
