This has nothing to do with TTC but I have a secret that I haven't told anyone except my husband and I want to share with someone!
Right now, I am an oncology RN and have been for 7 months. I love it.
But I feel like its time to experience a new area of nursing and I have an interview tomorrow morning with Labor and Delivery!! I am so excited!!
I haven't told anyone because I most likely wont get the job because several people have applied and I would be brand new to Women's and Children. But this will get my foot in the door and it shouldn't take me long to land a job there.
Or if I'm lucky, I'll get this one.
Pray and cross your fingers for me please!!!!!!

Good luck!!!! I'm a nurse as well but I work in the Emerge. I'm currently on mat leave since I get a year off paid here in Canada but before going back in May I might start looking for a job closer to home since I work in a hospital downtown and my kids will be in daycare near home.

Yay there's more nurses!! lol

I worked in the ED. I couldn't work in L&D or Oncology.. I have too much of a tender heart and I'd be crying ALL.THE.TIME!!
Well currently I work in a clinic which I love so far, nice change of pace.

Good luck!!!!! I'm crossing everything for you!

New siggie coming soon!





Me: Autoimmune (Hashimotos and Fibromyalgia), vitamin D and calcium deficiency. Treated with Synthroid, supplements, TCM and acupuncture.

DH: Severe MFI (low counts, low motility, poor morphology and high antibodies), likely caused by poor liver function. Treated with Clomid to increase total counts.

DD: Conceived after 1 year of TTC with progesterone to correct LPD (likely caused by undiagnosed thyroid dysfunction). Born Aug 2009 via c/s after an induction due to pre-e and HELLP.

TTC #2 since Oct10 with an early loss in Aug 2011. Post-wash counts are too low for IUI to be successful, so moving on to IVF/ICSI in May 2014!

IVF/ICSI #1 (May 2014): Estrogen priming and antagonist protocol, including acupuncture and prayer!
17/05/14 - Baseline looks good, start Gonal-F 225iu and Luveris 75iu
28/05/14 - 18 eggs retrieved, 14 mature
29/05/14 - 13 fertilized!!! All are looking great still on day 3, so we're going to blast!
02/06/14 - Transferred one 1BC blast, with 3 other blasts and 3 morulas to watch and freeze
03/06/14 - All embryos have arrested. None to freeze
09/06/14 - Faint BFP at home at 7dp5dt!!!!!
10/06/14 - Beta?

Good luck during you rinterview!!
I am a nurse in the NICU, if I couldnt work here my second choice would be L&D.

Do you do adults or peds oncology? I think that would be a very tough, but also rewarding area to work in

Good luck!!! I have my fingers crossed for you and praying for you!!! Look forward to hearing an update from you on how your interview went!!! I so badly want to get out of ICU nursing (working with adults) and work in L&D. I haven't been able to get my foot in the door. I have only within the last year or two really wanted to switch things up. ICU is getting so depressing lately and just not sure how much longer I want to do this. I have only been a nurse for 7 1/2 yrs but being that all my time has been ICU experience, it is wearing on me.

Mommy Lisa, I work adult oncology. It's sad, but very worthwhile. Those people are so appreciative of their care. It makes me realize how blessed I am for health! And cute nurse24, I can imagine icu getting too stressful! I think I would love nicu but idk about adult icu... But who knows, I may try it one day! That's the awesome thing about nursing... So many different areas to try! Thanks everyone for the support!
