When on the baby making roller coaster I have discovered it is vital to have a plan B. What will I do in case I don’t get pregnant this month? How will I distract my thoughts from babies and blogs to doing other things. In a couple of days I get to do the pregnancy test and find out if I need to make use of Plan B.
Luckily my plan B formulated whilst on holiday in Portugal. My holiday reading books included ‘Wild’, (movie with Reece Witherspoon and a backpack). I couldn’t help but be inspired by her hiking trip down the Pacific Coast trail in the west of America. Not that I’d go camping and walk alone… But more the adventure of it.
Then another plan B came whilst shopping! My manager called me and said two senior people resigned at my work this week. Basically I’d been sticking around in a job I didn’t like because I thought I’d get pregnant and use the maternity leave. I kept telling myself that It is hard to get a full time job when you don’t speak the language of your country and live in a town far from where the work is. However, I’ve been telling myself this for 2 years now. Now that these people are leaving, there is no one to steer the ship and its sinking. -Getting a new job has become the priority. (Plan A from plan B! )
