Anyone have tips for maintaining productivity/energy when pregnant and off of meds? Between the pregnancy fatigue and going off my medication cold turkey, I am struggling at work and find myself napping everyday.

I’m not pregnant but I went off of my medication in preparation for TTC. Exercise has saved me.

No good answers for you. I napped under my desk nearly every day first trimester going off of meds cold turkey. I added back caffeine 2nd trimester and that helped a lot.

It only took me 7 years to figure this system out.... posting in case it helps anyone else! I color coded my classes and printed off numbers according to the number of kids in my classes. I then assign each kid a number that corresponds with my gradebook. When they turn in their projects, they put their number with it. This way, no contact and I can easily see who has and hasn't turned in their projects yet. I take the list down once they remember their number.

How do you all deal with the guilt of leaving a comany/ team? I have been working at Microsoft for 1 year now, and seriously considering moving.

Hence I find the job slightly unsatisfying, and that I could learn more elsewhere. However, I love the wlb, the team and company culture. The guilt stops my applying.
