This could be a long post! I'm currently 28 weeks pregnant with our 1st bub. I am still working fulltime & I love, love, love my job! My husband has his own construction business & it's not going great guns - the town where we live is going through a downfall in the construction industry & it is tough @ times for all in the industry. There is a position available in my company that I would love to get. It could be a flexible one as I know the lady in that department worked from home when she had her kids. Obviously it all comes down to negotiation with the company when & if I apply and/or get offered the position, but I really want to give it a shot! I asked the HR manager yesterday if the position had been filled (as applications were meant to close @ the end of last month) & she said no & were open to accept more applicants.
I can't stop thinking about it & I feel terribly guilty about it consuming my thoughts more than my baby! Are there any other ladies out there who have been in the same position? Can you have a career & be a mum @ the same time? What was your experience with your job & raising a child?
I have an awesome support team. My husband has said he doesn't mind being Mr Mum - but has the common feeling of ''being slack & not being able to provide for his wife & child'' but like I said to him, this is actually something that I really want to go for & haven't been pressured into doing! And my Mum is going to be there for me when help is needed when it comes to looking after bub. She is so excited and is already booking dates in!
Any stories that are similar & you would love to share would be awesome
