Have you had thoughts of quitting the job during pregnancy? My tolerance of low efficiency and meaningless grind is getting so low that it’s a constant thought in my mind. Does this get better later in the pregnancy?

I don’t think your complaints have anything to do with pregnancy? But rather your job/role.

I just yelled to my hubby that I think I wanna quit..... I mean I won't because I need the $$ lol but I'm REALLLYYY looking forward to mat leave and a babymoon before then.

I did it. I started interviewing before I knew I was pregnant and continued through to landing a new gig because 1) my previous job was making me miserable and 2) I wasn't going to let my pregnancy stop me from furthering my career goals.

It got better during the 2nd trimester and now I’m back to wanting to quit every day (32 weeks). I’m so close to mat leave it’d be dumb to quit now so just trying to push through this last stretch!

Feel that everyday. I wish we were just plain rich and didnt have to work so hard.

I quit drinking at the first of the year because I was drinking too much as a way to cope with Covid. 99.9% of the time, I’m glad I quit drinking.

I don’t even like wine very much, but I miss that low level buzz that makes everything a little less loud.
