Hello! I think I phrased my question wrong before.. I am seeking guidance on whether it is time to work on the financial/job enhancement opportunities, or to add to our family. We have not been avoiding another child, but my job has expectations that take me away from my family for long periods of time and into unsafe situations... I am not sure which way to go...

Um, yeah, I did not understand that from your first question at all. But I do think you wanted to know overall if you would have both family and career and the answer was yes. So lets talk about timing this time:


I see you being mostly career involved for about another year and then refocusing your energy on a child. I know you mentioned that your biological clock is ticking, but I am not seeing any issues with getting or staying pregnant. I think now is the time to continue on your career and I sense this opening in your heart/time/life that presents itself as the right time to try getting pregnant. And when that time does, it won't be such a question and there won't be confusion. It feels very specific to me...this opening of when it's the right time. It will be so apparent that you won't be able to avoid it. But for now, I say focus on the career b/c I am hearing it just like this: "It would be silly to slow down the momentum of what you have going on right not"  I think you know this in your soul. So release any fear that you are getting to old to bear a child or that if you wait any longer there will be all these issues. It doesn't have to be that way. certainly don't manifest that with your fear. You are in the throes of some great career development. Don't be silly ;)
