Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive
16/02/2015 at 14:40
So we have been TTC for nearly 12 months now and am just at 8dpo today with a usually luteal phase of 12/13 days and I have been asked at work today if I can work in California for a month.
Other than the usual signs that have tricked me for the past 10 cycles, there is nothing more unusual other than crying about this as I don't know what to do (maybe a sign as this wouldn't usually make me emotional? I dont know!)
I have a rule not to test unless AF is late, and it has only been late once (when I hadn't really got my head around OPKs etc!) so am not planning on testing until the weekend - as AF would be well and truly late by then.
Totally gobsmacked…is a great opportunity but am torn as to what to do. I am going to have to give an answer soon.
Scenario 1 - I somehow miraculously get my BFP at the weekend….I wont want to go if this is the case, flights long hours and early pregnancy and no NHS would not mix….but I'm going to have to come clean as to why I can't go. So this would mean telling work before I am ready.
Scenario 2 - I dont get my BFP and I agree to go, but then get pregnant before I go….I would have to come clean about our TTC efforts at work anyway as we would have to book cancellable flights etc.
If I don't get my BFP we have already been for some tests and would be due to speak to a consultant in a few weeks, so do I really want to be clearing out a month when I could be concentrating on having a family??....but then maybe a distraction is needed! Again this would need to be discussed at work!
Only us know we have been TTC and I am now finding it more and more disheartening as we go along. So the thought of telling work about our plans that may or may not every happen really does not appeal!
Any advice from any international jet setting TTCers would be welcome.
