If you read this blog on a regular basis, you know that I rarely break from the topic of career to share anything personal with you. Today, however, I thought it pertinent to share some important news that will impact my readers.
First, the good news: I am expecting! At the time of this post, I am 23 weeks pregnant. My husband, my three year old and I are VERY excited about the newest addition to our family.
The not-so-good news: I was just advised by my doctor that, due to medical necessity, and to ensure my safety and the safety of my baby, I need to “slow down.” I may be placed on complete bedrest at some point, but for now, I’ve been told to get more rest. “Resting” is generally not in my vocabulary, so this will be a challenge. However, my doctor has made it clear that continuing at the pace I am used to may result in preterm labour, or worse, so, it is a challenge I will most certainly accept.
Impact for my readers: I do not yet know what the full impact will be for this site, my Twitter feed, Sweet Careers on Facebook, etc. but I suspect posts will slow down significantly for the remainder of the pregnancy and for the first few months to follow. I may also have to cease the free resume/cover letter service for a little while, but I will make a decision on that at a later date.
My fellow career professionals: I would welcome additional guest posts with a focus on career and job advice for college students and recent grads.
Thank you all for supporting this site and being such an inspiration to me. I also truly appreciate your thoughts and prayers.
