The time had come…. or so I thought. I guess one can only do so much at one time. I had been looking to make a career move for 1.5 years and go figure, I get an offer the month I am supposed to do my first IUI. Really?!?! This isn’t just any job, this job requires me to move across country and take on a new role with more responsibility.
So, I am faced with what to do:
- Accept the job/ decline the job?
- Move ahead with the IUI this month?
- Postpone the IUI until a later day?
After much reflection and thought, I have decided to take the job AND postpone the IUI. The job is an amazing opportunity that also happens to return me to the West Coast. This makes sense all around in terms of having a baby alone. Also, to be honest, I am not sure I could have done it all – new job, IUI and potentially a pregnancy. I think being able to apply myself to my work for a few months is the smart thing to do.
All of the preparation for baby is not lost. I will continue my acupuncture in California, will establish myself with a new physician and continue to visualize having a healthy, happy baby.
So, it is with great sadness I leave NYC to pursue a new dream professionally and personally. NYC, you will always have a special place in my heart and I am so thankful to have had the chance to bask in your amazing glory!
