Hi, everyone. I recently had a MMC at 10 weeks. My husband and I both want to TTC as soon as possible, but I have some reservations. Mentally and physically I am ready to try again, but I work at a very small accounting office and the timing could be bad if I do get pregnant in the next few months as I would be due close to or during busy season. I work with my mom and sister and if I were out on maternity leave it would be a big burden on them and everyone at the office. I was just wondering if anyone else would try to plan around work? The thought of waiting until August to try then the possibility of miscarrying again has been causing me a lot of stress since we’re very ready to be parents, but also the thought of what everyone at work will go through if I’m out during tax season makes me feel very guilty. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.
Re: Planning around work??
I know special snowflake people who have planned their children, and gotten PG each time within the few month timeframe they set to have them when it works best with their work schedules (teachers who wanted their babies in the summer). And I am just astounded that it actually worked out for them. Because keep in mind that the average couple has a 20% chance of conceiving every month. It can take a regular, healthy couple up to a year to get PG naturally. And that doesn't include your chances of MC in general, or if you were to go on and have RPL. And who knows what life will even throw at you that's not PG related...
However, it is YOUR life, so you do what you think is best.
