I just needed to vent a bit.
I've been pursuing a career in the field of anatomy & physiology for the past few years now and would ultimately like to become a pathologist. I've been progressing great, and i have one more semester until i get my Bachelors. My husband does not want me to look for a job, as he has a good job. And he'd prefer, since im pregnant that i stay home with our child and raise him. I've asked numerous times what the ideal situation would be. And he replied i stay home, maintain the household (cook clean etc) and take care of our baby. Which i intend to for as long as i can before i have to pursue my career. You see we have a little age gap, hes 10 years older than me already established and i am on the Verge, the cusp of establishing what i've always wanted to do.
SOOOOO what happens to all the time and energy that i put into becoming something. What happens to my dreams and my goals. I've seen moms juggle their career finish college and still maintain the household and raise their children. He is worried that i will not have the time, nor the patience for my family. Is he nuts? i know starting off your career you are bombarded with new cases and a schedule that is less than desirable. But if other women can do it why can't i? Am i being unrealistic? am i being inconsiderate?
