You got this, momma! Several friends got the vaccine while pregnant and their babies are all doing well.

Yay! Thank you for protecting yourself and others. I appreciate you overcoming family influence/misinformation and making that choice!

Excited that you will protect you and your baby, too! My sister is an ICU professional who has watched too many second-tri moms die in the past 18 months. Thanks for taking care of youself 👍🏻

Sure hope so. In the meantime, I don’t go anywhere (except hospital for my ultrasounds and check ups). Hoping to ride these next few months out unaffected.

I got vaccinated at around 28 weeks (as soon as I could get an appt), baby is perfectly healthy. Good luck to you!

Hi everyone! For those that feel comfortable, would love to see the breakdown AFC > eggs retrieved > fertilized > embryo > genetically normal (please feel free to include other steps, add in more numbers/details).

Starting remote at a new firm tomorrow after taking 3 weeks between jobs as parental leave after my wife had a baby. Can’t help but feel guilty about leaving her to take care of the little one all day and all night with less help from me (we asked parents to wait bc of covid). Anyone else dealt with feelings like this going back after parental leave?

Why is maternity leave, policy and other women's issues not important as compared to Juneteenth, coed bathrooms, and all the other issues in the media today? Women are half the population and at an average of 2.1 kids per woman, these are major issues. Are we not vocal enough? Organized enough? Not a serious voting demographic? Too grateful things are better in this generation? What is it? Why does 50% of the population matter less compared to these smaller marginal groups?

I’m really struggling mentally. The understanding of how insanely busy and overwhelming it will be because of this COVID-19 crap is giving me severe anxiety and panic attacks. I want to leave so badly but no one is hiring right now. I don’t know what to do. I feel trapped with no way out.

It seems like both on here and TLS there has been a lot of discussion lately of non-legal exit ops with a biglaw corporate background, and especially from a v10. Most of the discussion is centered on finance and investing roles in NYC. The conclusion is typically that it is very difficult but doable with the right background and luck. I’m curious if anyone has been able to lateral from a v10 to a non legal role in a smaller market where their experience stands out more than in NYC?

Would you take a long vacation over a retention bonus/signing bonus? Basically, I’ve already made hours in June. I’m getting crushed at work and my firm doesn’t seem to be keen on providing extra bonuses. It seems like they are okay (at least for now) with me taking 3.5 weeks off in august and some time off in October, to try to relax and prevent me from hitting 2800 hours this year. If given the choice, would you take this, or start interviewing to get a signing bonus (and maybe retention)?
