Have been leading a big exciting challenge at work (love the work I do, at the level I do) but my current contract/secondment is coming to end. I go back to my substantive role soon, which feels like a massive step backwards. I'm going to struggle. It's a great workplace, with great people, conditions... And I've been there a few years which also entitles me to their (very generous) maternity leave - if and when I might need to access it.
On the flip side, I saw a role advertised elsewhere that has really grabbed my attention - so have decided to apply for it!! Have always loved loving my work, and this seems like an exciting opportunity and step up... But across.
Given we're trying for #1, am I mad? If we fall pregnant soon (which is still my greatest hope), will I resent myself for not staying to access the conditions of the great workplace I'm at? DP has a good job at a place he's been with for 10+ years, and fully supports my vocational happiness... But, am I mad??
Anyone had a similar jump during TTC? What's your story? Good, bad or otherwise?
