I am struggling with a decision. My DH and I have been struggling with infertility for 3.5 years. I currently work from home, make my own schedule and get to do whatever I want, which would be perfect for starting a family. I hoped that last year would be our year but sadly nothing has worked so far. I like the freedom I have at work but I am not in love with the field I work in. The jobs I see posted that are exactly what I'd like to do are not as flexible. Do I stick with what I am doing while we continue our TTC journey, or do I continue to develop my career?
Re: Improving career while TTC
As as an individual who has known first hand that one has to come before the other, I have chosen my family and put my career on the back burner. I work in a job that is semi-flexible (more so than my previous employer was) and understands that I'm a mom as well as an employee.
But I want to wish you all the luck in the world. I hope you find a way to have the dream job and the flexibility to be the best mom you could be.
