I’m 15 weeks this week and we just told some friends of ours the exciting news… except one of them texted me after the fact to say “I did notice that you were getting ‘bigger,’ but I just chalked it up to the stress of your new manager role. Glad to hear it’s bc you’re pregnant!”
Um, maybe I’m being sensitive, but that seems a little rude? At this point, my weight gain does look just like bloating and not a bump, but who says that out loud?

Attempting to transfer from a big 4 in Chicago to New York. Received my offer for New York and saw that the offer was lower than initial offer. Talked to recruiter and they didn’t budge on salary.

This is a shower thought / confession: Sometimes I feel like I’m not very smart compared to my peers, but then I see some of the face palm inducing questions being asked on Fishbowl and realize some of these are from the same people making north of 250k a year. The lesson I’ve learned is never sell yourself short!
