Not even sure where this fits in the topics - here goes ... seeking collective MN advice ...
Have 1 child, have just gone back to work full time, husband is SAHD
Work has offered me a new job which is quite high profile but also quite hard work, but in the long run, would be a good career move
Tonight did pregnancy test and there you go - little blue cross - so, evidently I'm only about three minutes pregnant, so can't possibly tell anyone (a bit surprised by the way, it took over three years to fall pregnant the first time, so we assumed it would this time, if at all)
So, the question is, - do I take the job, knowing that I'll be leaving in 7 months on maternity leave, or do I stay in my position which I know well doing work that I am comfortable with, and which would create less fuss when I go on maternity leave .....
I have a similar dilemma which I'd appreciate your collective opinion on - I've been in my current job for 18 months, which is OK but I don't enjoy the work much.
I'm in the middle of applying for another job at another organisation which is a very rare opportunity to do something I've always wanted to do. Trouble is we've been ttc no. 3 for over a year now (I'm 40) so could in theory get pg at any time.
Do I continue the application? (It's a long process involving multiple interviews, tests etc)
Also, if I was offered the job then found I was pg should I accept it and should I tell them if I was, as KB, only 3 mins pg??????
Go for it BL. I was in the same situation, and got pregnant literally the day after starting the new job. New female boss looked a bit gobsmacked when I told her, then beamed and gave me a big hug, and it's all worked out brilliantly.
