    Thats the thing - i know in my head im telling myself its only 4 months in the scheme of things, but as each month ticks by, it feels like eternity..

    To be honest, I couldn't stop trying especially with what you've been through over the last 7 months. Is there anyway to take leave without pay from your current job, try out the second job and if you love it and don't fall within the 3months you could then resign from your old job? (Don't know if this is doable?)

    Something i havent really thought about to be honest ! Its possible i guess but id be leaving to go to the 'other side' - not competition as such but still in the same arena... might look into it, thanks 🖒

    Only thing is im not sure if in 15 months time the company im working for now will be around......
    What makes you say that?
    You could technically say the same about the new job as you don't have insider knowledge of it...

    I would stay in my current job. You are guaranteed maternity leave and wont need to hold off on trying to get pregnant and can focus on just that.
