Trying to Get Pregnant

Taking a break :(

So, MH and I had a talk tonight about our TTC plans and decided it would be best to take a few months off.  Crying He's graduating from grad school this May and we'll likely be moving out of state.  I'm really sad that we have to take a break after 9 months of TTC (we already had to take 2 months off for scheduling reasons), especially since it's something we've really been looking forward to.  But, I think it's the responsible thing to do for a few reasons.

1) I'm a new RN and would be about 6 months pregnant (if I would have my BFP this month), which would make it very difficult to hide that and find a new job.

2) Our health benefits are kinda cruddy right now and we'll have great benefits staring in July.

3) If I wait and am able to work for a year, I'll be able to qualify for FMLA.

So, vent over.  Has anyone else gone through something like this?

Re: Taking a break :(

  • I'm so sorry, sounds like your circumstances will be much better in a few months. I'm new to TTC and I don't plan on moving soon, but I hope you can figure everything out soon.

  • I am right now and it sucks! I just got a new job and I'm a CPA with my busy season from Jan-April. We plan to start trying again in July/Aug. Sorry you have to wait, but you are being smart and responsible!!

    Im still charting so by the time we do TTC again, I'll know my body pretty well.

  • Thanks, ladies.  The emotional part of me is like "wah, wah, I want it now," but the logical part of me knows it's better this way.

    It stinks, but at the same time if we wait a year from now after not getting pregnant this month, I know in my heart that I will have more time for my baby/with my baby.

  • Aw, I'm so sorry that you have to take a break!  I have also been trying 9 months and would be so sad to have to stop now...  However, I hope that it is good for you and you are able to relax/refocus and when you are ready to start again, you will be refreshed!  GL!

  • Sounds like you're making a mature decision as your circumstances will significantly improve by the time you start TTC again.

  • We may have to take a break to avoid a very busy work time for me. I say may because I feel similarly to you (it's the responsible thing to do) but I may not be able to justify the break...

    Good luck with whatever happens. Health benefits and FMLA (if you know you'll need to return to work) are good reasons to wait, imo.
