Ever since I was in high school all I wanted to do was be a stay at home mom. When I found out I was going to graduate second in my class I thought to myself it would be a waste of talent if I didn't go to college. So, I decided to got o school to become an obstetrician. I worked very hard in college and graduated with a B.S. in Biology and Chemistry and am currently pursuing a M.S. degree in genetics and developmental biology. My boyfriend of 7 years, now husband, and I got married this last fall and he and I have discussed starting a family, but I have been having so much success in my career (i.e. research awards, internships, jobs, M.S. degree, and assistantships) that I didn't want to waste it, you know. But its like all of the success is just distracting me from what I really want, a family. I have my entire life to continue my career, I am only 23... but with infertility running strong in both mine and my husbands family... I feel like I might miss the boat and I am terrified of that! He and I are both financially ready, and though we are renting we have the room and the time to start a family.... I just am so scared that if I wait and continue on the path I am on now, that I won't be able to have a baby, or even worse I will be so successful in my career I won't ever be home... It would absolutely kill me if I was not able to have the same close relationship with my children that my parents and I have........ I don't know what to do or what is the right thing to do :( I just feel like something is missing.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
