Why Now???

Here’s the latest picture, it was taken today. Not much of a change since the last 1 1/2 weeks.

I received a call for a job interview yesterday for a really good position that I would really like to have. The pay is better, the hours are much better, but with it comes more responsibility.

Of course when is the start date? A week before my due date. So there ya go, of all times for me to get an opportunity like this to finally get an interview for a job like this, it has to start then. I would have to go right to work after I had the baby. I feel so upset at the thoughts of even doing that. My hubby and everyone around me thinks I am nuts, because it’s the opportunity of a lifetime but I feel so torn that I won’t have the time to spend with the baby. Jeez it’d be like one day pop out the kid and bam right after I get out the hospital I have to work. I know people do it, but I do have the opportunity to stay home with my children for a year with paid leave and still return to a good paying job in the end. At least with my other children I never had to do that before. I had the time to stay home with them, even for a month. Anyway, I am considering declining the interview, because my luck I’d actually get the job, then I’d have to decline it. Just wish it weren’t now!

    I’d hate to be in your position. I could tell you what I think I’d do, but there’s no way to know what you’d do until you’re in that position, so I won’t comment. Good luck figuring it all out.

    Good luck with this decision! I don’t have the option of staying home after the baby is born because I am self-employed and I don’t get benefits šŸ˜¦ So, obviously, I would choose to stay at home, but that’s because I know I can’t. Whatever you decide will be okay.

    Oooh, that’s a tough decision. You’ll pick the right one. And that’s a cute pic–you don’t look like you’re so close to delivery!

    Wow what timing! You will do what is right for your family. A whole year of paid maternity leave? Can’t beat that either. Tell me something, what is the minimum paid family leave for Canada? I realize it probably is different with each province but I am not sure which province you live in? Just curious. I have 6 weeks. which is not nearly long enough!
    Nice belly pic by the way…..you look really good!

    HEY SARA IT’S DENISE. IF YOU WANT MY OPINION I WOULD DECLINE THE INTERVIEW. THIS IS YOUR LAST BABY AND YOU MAY REGRET IT IF YOU DONT. BESIDES YOU CAN ALWAYS APPLY FOR IT AGAIN LATER.

    Hoping to stay pregnant, I live in Nova Scotia, and it goes according to what you make for the EI, I have the maximum right now and then i get a top up from work, for 4 months. So for me I am getting roughly 2200 month clear, then it’ll decrease each biweekly pay until i hit 1544 month. that’s what i’d get until next april if i wanted to.

    Sounds like you are making the right decision for you. You might not enjoy the job as much knowing that you could be home with your baby. I haven’t been offered anything really special, but I just finished some coursework that would make my current job better, but it’ll have to wait. Isn’t timing crazy?

    You look great by the way! Cute tummy. šŸ™‚
