I'm in the same boat! Currently 30 weeks and I feel just as exhausted as I did in first trimester.

Naps have been great! And also, just being open with my husband. If I have no energy to cook or clean, I let him know so he can grab take out. He's also really good about helping me/ doing household chores.

For baby room prep, if you have family or friends who can help you.. reach out! I'm sure they would love to help you prepare so you can rest.

Hi!
I’m trying to choose between entry-level offers(undergrad AC/JC ) at Bain & Company and

Pros of Bain: liked the people, based out of Dubai, liked their externship program + other non-work benefits.
Cons of Bain: not that big in the ME.

Pros of BCG: interesting projects, very big sign-on bonus.
Cons of BCG: based out of Riyadh.

I’m interested in CX, Product Strategy, Digital Transformation.

Does Bain handle projects in those areas?
Is Riyadh that bad?

Thanks!
