We received some bad news yesterday. Greg is being laid off a month from now, a month before the baby is due. His company is losing the account he currently contracts for. The news just makes me sick. We thought something was off a month or two ago and were praying about what we should do, i.e. look for a new job or stick things out and I felt that all would work out and that we just needed to have faith. I assumed that answer to our prayers meant he would keep his job, but that turned out not to be the case. I know that I received that answer of comfort before and that I need to have faith and remember all will work out for the best. The Lord has always watched out for us and has our best interest in heart.
I am mostly worried about how this will affect our insurance, and the delivery, whether I will be able to stay with my current OB. Greg has lost his job once before, but now with a child, a pregnancy and a mortgage, being unemployed is a much more terrifying prospect. I know many of our friends are going through this as well and can understand how I am feeling right now and I appreciate that. I think now that we are going through it ourselves we have gained better insight into others' trials.
