^definitely planning on doing that, it's just frustrating when a lot of your peers don't have this issue and are living much different lifestyles.

I'm still paying my minimum for grad school and feel like I am lost in the minutia that is student loan debt

With the interest they charge it's impossible to pay it off

Anyone have something similar? Early in 2nd trimester I had two periods of intense continuous back pain and tightness in my belly lasting 3 hours. This was happening in the middle of the night. In the last 10 days I’ve had 2 of the same periods. But lasting 5-6 hours. Finally talked to an on call doctor about it one night and proceeded to L&D. All was well with baby and cervix intact but there was no explanation for my symptoms. Should I file this under normal pregnancy symptoms or be concerned?

My client(male) is very flirtatious to me all the time.He responds to my questions & answers my calls immediately.But if anyone else from my team reaches out to him he’s not that responsive.It’s gotten to the point where my team realizes that & for every horrible situation they make me communicate with him as they think he won’t say anything to me. That’s makes me a bit uncomfortable. Unsure if I should discuss this with someone or let it be.
