Hmmmm I don’t have any experience with this being self employed, but if I were in your shoes, I would just continue moving forward with your position. You never know how long it will be until you conceive and in the mean time, I’m sure the boost in salary will help! You don’t have to give up your dreams to say the least. At a bare minimum you’ll be in your new position for nearly a year before you leave on mat leave, so I wouldn’t feel badly about it.

Don’t feel bad, you earned the promotion and you can’t not accept it because you are planning something.  You never know how long it will take to get pregnant and you never know how you will feel after you have your first child.  You need to do what is best for you now AND in the long run, which is feeling good and doing well at your job so you and your family will be even better prepared for children!

Congrats on your promotion and good luck TTC!

You should go forward. I think that you may feel guilty because you are using a specific procedure (and therefore making a conscious decision) to make it happen. How about others in a similar position who get pregnant naturally? Regardless, you would be working for two months, then trying to get pregnant – You would work for several months before taking leave.

Do it. Feel proud. Feel happy 🙂
