Soooo.... As much as it pains me to say it and I wish it wasnt the case but it looks as if my dreams of having a baby within the next year are pretty much stuffed. OH got the management job (they must have liked him cause he found out straight away and was picked from over 20 applicants) which is GREAT, but means that he is going to have to work away from home for potentially a whole year . Deffinately 6 months anyway. We can visit each other maybe every 2 weeks but it is going to be pretty hopeless where TTC is concerned. We are still going ahead with the house becaues its too nice to pass up and his accomodation is paid for his move anyway so I will just have to stay in the house myself, or maybe get a friend to live with me. I HATE being alone . To be honest it hasnt totally sunk in yet, for the past 3 years we have never spent longer than a week apart, So its deffinately not going to be easy, but in the end he will have an amazing job with more than double his salary atm. But we cant have a baby through skype, so I guess theres not much choice for me . The only reason I am pissed off is because OH has suddenly changed all his feelings towards TTC, he now thinks we should wait until he is settled in the new job and up he gets and takes the job.
Woah, sorry for the rant. I'm not sure how I am going to handle this but I'm sure I will somehow. As I say it hasn't sunk in yet so prepare for some emotional posts in the near future haha!
treasured - yay for great job opportunity for OH!! but that suck for ttc! long distant relationship is the worst~! good to know you get to see each other every ~2 weeks. FX O falls close to weekends~ quality time = quality bd = quality bfp~
pino - Ah!! 3 more weeks!! get on packing lady! are you almost done though?
Honestly I have so much to do!! I have been thinking about packing, and only packed a tiny bit.... I figured we have 5 weeks left. Now that is squashed and I couldn't sleep at all last night cause I was thinking about all the stuff I have to do.
treasured - it's great OH got the job but really puts you in a different place! We've learned from preg_pilot and lauren that you can get pregnant when time is against you. It sounds like a challenging situation but if you keep communicating together you'll make it through. When does he start?
Pino - how exciting you move so soon! I remember when you first talked about moving I thought March was SO FAR AWAY! Now it's pretty much here! I wish all the best for you in your new start
lxb - Happy belated Anniversary I hope you and DH spent some quality time together enjoying each other. You are such a strong soul, and we are all here for you. You are making progress and moving forward. Only good things to come...
treasured I'm sorry to hear that you'll have to be away from OH so much. Congrats to him on his job and to both of you on the house!
Pino woohoo on your move being so soon!! I am sure you're very busy with preparations
Afm, getting sick of my commute VERY quickly!! It's been snowing here and taking me ages to get to and from work. I know I can't complain because I chose to buy a house and continue working here until my leave, but boy I can't wait to never commute up here again!!! I plan on getting my resume updated and prepped before LO arrives so that I can easily apply to jobs closer to home during my leave (assuming I have the physical and mental space to do that!). I just can't imagine coming back to this job--it's so far away and I don't feel very appreciated or treated fairly. Plus I'm learning quickly that this company is NOT very family-friendly, despite the fact that the Managing Partner has four kids and the other Partner has three!! Anyway, Fx that I can get through these next weeks.
