So it has been 1 week since my D&E. I have had no bleeding, only what looks like really light spotting. I have had no cramping or any soreness. It has been great. I did take the Dr.’s advice and didn’t exercise for a week…which was hard. I ran yesterday with Anissa and was surprised at how well I did. We did our normal route and I didn’t feel as tired as I thought I would. Only thing that hurt was these DAMN plantar warts! I ran again this afternoon with Jack and felt great. It was such a nice day, I couldn’t pass it up.
So on another kinda related subject, I have been thinking about switching jobs. Thing is, I LOVE the group I am in, the product we work on, and the people I work with. So I have been trying to figure this out. I have been wanting to move to a more development type position to keep myself challenged and up to date with technologies but I couldn’t figure out how to make a transition. Then, last week, we got word that one of our developers was leaving. I talked with some others in the department and decided to talk to the hiring manager. I know the current posting is beyond my skill set but I wanted to make my presence known in case any projects we re to “fall through the cracks”. This afternoon, I went and had a quick chat with him about my interests. He was very receptive and is going to look into getting me into more of a hybrid role of testing and developing…just obviously not the same content. He is going to talk with my boss and see about slowly working me in when I have lulls in my schedule. So hopefully this will A) help push on my promotion B) get my foot in the door to development and C) keep me more challenged. And to circle back on why this is somewhat related to baby making, the group I work in is all about the kiddos. Every woman except maybe 3 in the entire department have kids and the flex time to be with them and the understanding of maternity leave is great. There is no fear I will get too behind while out or too swamped once a kid is here. Once again, I love the group I am in…hell we make software for kids…how could we not be!
Well off to heat up some good ol’ SAS leftovers for dinner….did I mention I love where I work 🙂
