My husband and I are discussing starting TTC in about 6 months. We currently rent (and will continue to) and my commute to work is about an 1-1.5 hours by bus. We're trying to decide if we should move closer to my work (and further from his) so I don't have to commute as far while potentially pregnant. I may be able to start driving to avoid bus issues, but that would still involve a good amount of traffic. We're in a predicament because we like the neighborhood we're in and the rental market is more affordable than being closer to my work. We would stay and deal with my commute if it wasn't for the potential of being pregnant and having a family! I would likely chose an OBGYN and hospital that is close to home, so then I’d also have the potential of issues with getting to appointments that are far from work.
This may totally be overthinking and I know it could be a moot point if it takes a while to conceive, but I want us to make a good decision when our lease is up and not have to move again. Has anyone dealt with this issue, if it even is one? Is there any concern about working 45 min-1 hour from the hospital you deliver at?
