  1. Wow that is amazing! You really nailed that interview! That would be perfect, if they could defer my start date. I really vibed with the manager and nurse educator during my interview. It was like talking to women I knew already. I’m hoping they are receptive to starting me at a later time because I’d love to work with them.
  2. Not talking myself out of the position at all, just doing my due diligence to keep myself professional and not make a bad impression. By the time my probation is over, I’ll be 7 months pregnant (I was 7 months when pre-eclampsia took over and I had an emergency section in March of last year). It is safer to air on the side of caution considering my last pregnancy was in 2018, no? I included the tolls to imply how far the job is, considering the high risk pregnancy. But that, along with a few other things I did not mention, are reasons I placed in a “con” category for this job. Paying for tolls would be an additional bill just to get to work that I could definitely use to save for the new babies instead. I definitely do not mind working. I still plan on finding something to do until I cannot work anymore. But being a new grad and new hire, I was not sure if starting at 3 months pregnant was a good call.
  3. Thank you! That sounds like what I will end up doing. It’s a great opportunity and I don’t want to spoil it by not being up front with them. And maybe they’ll keep me in mind for next year! That would be great.
  4. Thank you! It does sound so much better while being pregnant. I think it’s my best bet right now, because I don’t want to blindsight the hospital with my pregnancy. Especially to have to leave so soon after starting. Labor and Delivery is my dream, but I can always try for it again next year when I’m ready to go back to work.
  5. Home care isn’t my first option. I’m just keeping open to other positions that I could possibly work before going on a leave. A position I’m possibly in the running for is a Pre-Op RN at an ambulatory center that’s only 10 minutes away from me. The hours are better. No weekends or holidays. It’s close. And it can keep me in practice.
  6. Hey Everyone, I'm in a bit of a pickle and wanted to know if anyone has any experience with this topic, or any advice on what to do. I graduated in December 2018, and I have a job offer for Labor and Delivery RN (my dream specialty to work in) to start orientation on July 8th. The hospital is about a 40 minute drive from where I live, and I have to cross a toll bridge to get there. I just found out that I am pregnant......with twins . Still processing this information lol. Its early in the pregnancy, but I am considering a lot of things now due to my last pregnancy. I had pre-eclampsia my last pregnancy and my daughter was 2 months premature. So I am being considered high-risk. The orientation/training period at this new job is 4 months long. By the time I am done with orientation I am worried that it wont be long before I am possibly placed on bedrest, or have another reason to have to leave early for maternity leave. Basically, I fear I won't be at this new job for very long before I have to leave. I am wondering what my best bet is here. Should I continue with the position? Or should I decline for now, and find something more local that I can still use for work experience? I have been in contact with a home care agency that would accept me right away for locations that are closer to me, as well as another job prospect that is close to me as well. These jobs are not particularly in my field of interest, but I could still work them for nursing experience and save some money for the new babies; then once I'm ready to go back to work after they're born, I can try for a hospital job. Any advice? Thanks
