a new job!?!? — The Bump
Trouble TTC a Sibling

a new job!?!?

I have a good job that pays well. I was recently approached by a company and asked to apply for a higher paying but very different job.
As I've started the 2ww I am ridiculously stressed about the idea of starting a new job when I could be pregnant.

Anyone else struggle to male these decisions while ttc

Re: a new job!?!?

  • I agree with @lemonblossom3.  I used to worry about how pregnancy timing would work with other aspects of life but once conceiving became a struggle, I stopped all of that.  You don't want to look back with regret because TTC held you back from something.  If the new job seems like a good fit for your and your family, I would go for it.

  • Pretty much what everyone else said.  If it is truly a good job for you and your family go for it!

  • I would separate TTC from all other decisions. Things got better for me after I did that. We put off vacations, renovations, all kinds of stuff, and as the years passed we realized we were waiting our lives away for a hypothetical child we may never get.
