I switched projects while ~16 weeks pregnant. Timing was ideal because I was past the first terrible wave of nausea/fatigue (6-13 weeks for me) and had about 2 months of second trimester glow to do good work before I started heading downhill physically again. I went up for Manager as an SC 2 and was promoted while out on mat leave, so it worked beautifully. That said, the whole thing was a very risky trade. I blew a bridge with my former project and I was lucky to have (a) landed such a great fit second gig and (b) felt energetic enough to perform as well as I did on a high visibility project.

This is helpful thanks! How did you find it coming back from maternity leave at a new level?

New manager + new mom was (and is) the most horrendously difficult thing I have ever done. Even with a >30% raise, on bad days I still want my old job back. Of course, if I hadn’t gotten promoted, I would also be annoyed. 😂

Is it a stretch to buy a $900k house with about $180k income? The conventional metrics would say yes, but our budget works.

Am I missing anything here or is this actually doable?
