While I think there are definitely things that you have to sacrifice to be a parent, from every single person I have heard it is worth it 1,000x over.  There are plenty of mothers today who are still very successful in their careers while having a family..I whole heartedly believe you can have your cake and eat it too in that aspect, you do not need to be a SAHM to be a good mom by any means, nor do you have to work part-time or not as hard.  My DH and myself both had very busy and hard-working mothers and we don’t feel like we missed out at all, in fact, we are both very proud of our parents for doing such a good job while having such demanding careers.  Did I spend a lot of time with caregivers when I was younger? Yes, but I learned how to play well with others and I got to spend a ton of time with my grandparents so I feel incredibly blessed to have such a good relationship with them today, too.  

I guess looking at your situation it sounds like you do very much want a child, so sometimes you just have to take the plunge and go for it.  It will be worth it! 🙂
