I’ll be joining my new role in a leadership position soon. But I also plan to have a second baby soon because it’ll get too late otherwise. Is it ok to get pregnant soon after joining a new job ? Is it frowned upon ? Do I need to have a discussion with my to-be-boss ? Do you think I should wait longer ? Or should I just reject the offer and continue in my current job ? I’m 34 and don’t want to drag this later than this.

Definitely do not have a convo with your to-be boss about what more or less is your decision to have unprotected sex. Agree with EY1 take the job and move forward with your personal plans simultaneously.

Totally agree, take the job. You don’t have to reveal your sex life and family plans. No man would ever. If it helps I recently took an executive position the day after I found out I’m pregnant. Happy to talk about my experience with you. DM me.

Take the job, crush it, also try to get pregnant. “Worst case” scenario, you only have 9 months to build your brand in the new role. Doesn’t sound bad at all to me!

However, at times in career I have felt too “soft” - not great with confrontation & only thrive in friendly environments. Is there logic in staying to build resiliency? (Or perhaps I should lower my expectation of humanity in business?)
