Thanks GenY! I'll be going back to work full time. DP is still going to school, so I'm making most of the money at the moment. I'm a nurse and work 3 12 hr. shifts a week, so maybe it won't be too bad. We'll see.
Preggo - what kind of nurse are you? I'm a pediatric cardiology physician assistant! Being around the 's all the time is a WTT killer!!!
MindUtopia - you're killing me with the similarities!!! Are you on bcp or using pull out method at the moment (I don't think tmi exists on BnB!)?
So of we got preggo in April we'd be looking at New Years babies! And Year of the Dragon babies - supposed to be very lucky.
I will have to go back to work full time and DH will likely work less hours (he owns his own business so has flexibility). I wish I could trade spots but our finances depend a lot on my job, and I think it's better for me to work, mental health-wise! I do hope to go to 4 days a week though after LO is born. Will still work 40 hr week but hat one special day for just baby and I would be so meaningful!
I'm on the pill, so I take my last one on the 24th of March and then it usually takes me a week to finish with my period (a few days to start and then 3-4 days to actually happen), so once I'm feeling up for it that next week, it's on! We were actually discussing this the other day, how we'd like a Dragon baby! It is supposed to be good luck and the year after (I forget now what it is) doesn't quite sound as good. New Year's baby would be awesome (my mom's birthday is the 2nd of Jan), but I'm hoping I go longer rather than shorter because I definitely would prefer not to have a Christmas baby (Christmas is like my least favorite time of the year!).
Ha. Ha. That's true. The main reason I didn't want to work with kids is the parents. Plus, I really hate sticking adults, I couldn't even imagine sticking kids! I will say that I've always been interested in NICU though. It's good that you get so much experience working with kids. I would say that is a definite benefit.
