I am still debating myself on so many things below and wanted to check with you all for opinions. Mine is a love marriage and myself and my hubby are both are already 33yrs now, we have an daughter who is 3yrs now. Am debating myself whether i should quit my job (11yrs) and take a break and then conceive second baby (we both want an second kid) or wait till pregnancy (couple of months) and then take a break. In my office, already lots of politics, even after when i came back from first delivery , had lots of work load, the first one year was really very stressful with my kid and work life. If i got pregnant again , my manager will plan to get rid off my position itself since he keeps hiring all low experience people so his position doesn’t get affected by promotion. I am infact just a level below his , so he has been asking me to check on all opportunities within the company if am interested (infact on the day of my hiring, he kept on telling that i can be on this role for couple of years but must look for opportunities within other groups in the org). Actually he has his old friend as well in our team who’s my colleague, and she is also in the same level as mine but has only specific skill set and doesn’t take any other ownership of other skill set. From day one he has been assigning all challenging opportunities to me and if i succeed and if my senior manager appreciates with award, he kept adding more challenging tasks. Intact my senior manager, manager and other colleagues are all very close and he been working in previous job as well. Because of my family reasons i didn’t expect any promotions even after working in same group for 4yrs inspire of delivering successful tasks. Always i take up the difficult task and try it out and then i have to teach the other person in the team to learn and execute it. I am fed up with that, as i transition my knowledge to other members and my role/opportunities disappears. At home also , not much of help, even though my husband helps, he is in startup now so you all might know how much stressful life it is. My in laws came for a month for last delivery but i would prefer being alone rather them coming and interfering their nose in everything. My mom is sick as well and so cannot travel also. Started hiring cleaners once a month for extensive bathroom,living and kitchen cleaning as i end up having severe back pain if i do everything myself. For cooking, i am doing myself, sometime my husband helps but he prefer to daily cook twice atleast rather than storing food in fridge and having. Taking care of kids stuffs , cleaning, our laundry i manage to do them over the weekends, if am very stressed , i do it over the weekdays. But sometimes i am very frustrated that i need to quit my job as i know the pain of struggling to find an full time opportunity, but on the other side, i feel that i need a break as i feel am running behind something everyday in my life and no relaxation. Even if i plan on quitting sooner, i am debating whether i should return back and look for opportunities within an year otherwise its hard to find opportunity in the market or i should be home and take care of kids as its becoming stressful day by day with both of us working. Am so confused that am not able to concentrate on anything neither at home or in office.
