And it has a seriously messed up sense of humor. I'm going to have to move to NYC in January! My boss sprung on me last week that the move is going to happen much earlier than I expected, and asked for a decision. I frantically looked for every possible escape route- there were none, from a professional standpoint.
There are some silver linings- I get NYU subsidized housing very close to where I work, and they will pay me a 1000$ extra a month to go towards housing, so it becomes pretty affordable. Yes, I'll have to kiss my car goodbye, but I can get stuff delivered and picked up( including laundry and groceries) and I'll be using the money I save for cabs. So the wheels have been furiously turning searching for practical ways to make life easier, and there are a lot of choices.
But- if I TTC now, I'll be around 4-5 months pregnant (hopefully) when we move. Not easy. Granted, I plan to get movers to pack (and possibly unpack) everything for me- money is not an object and my boss had better cover it all. Still,even with a lot of help resulting in me having very little to unpack and set up, it is still bound to be stressful.
My family has told me I would be nuts to TTC now, to wait till I'm there and settled to try. I'm definitely not ok with waiting 5 months, but I can see where they are coming from.
So what do you guys think- cross country move possible when 4-5 months preggers? Feel free to take your gloves off when replying:)
PS : Just for a lark, I googled 'moving cross-country while pregnant'. Found this page - its kind of empowering!
