I just found out I’m pregnant this morning. I have an offer for an in-house job which I’m thinking about to accept but they only provide 10 weeks maternity leave. My current firm offers 18 weeks. Should I stay for the maternity leave? I’m doing great in my current firm and received positive feedback in the performance review last week. But I know I’m going to move in-house eventually so I’m worried if I miss this opportunity it may not be easy for me to land another job.
Send kids to private school or move to a 10/10 school area? The average price of home is $1 mill in good areas... rent is $4000. Private school in my sub urban area is $1200 per month for 1 kid. I only have 1 kid right now but planning 1 more in next 2 years
So I forgot to calendar some new dates for a property sale at work. Now my boss had to work on Friday and today to fix my mistake. Not lots of work but just like I wanted her to give final approval before I sent out some required notices. I’m a 6th year and feel like such a failure. Like who forgets to calendar stuff?!?! Me. That’s who. I just found out I’m pregnant and I’ve been so ill with morning sickness and that is absolutely why I messed up at work. Any tips on how I get over this?

You all inspired me (see post below about looking for a physical challenge that won’t kill me). I think I’ll try a triathlon/sprint triathlon. Any tips? I think (?) I can swim - I know I learned when I was a kid, but I haven’t actually swam in a few decades. I can definitely ride a bike and I can run. Not looking to win any medals, I’m just looking for a challenge that will keep me engaged.
Omg ladies, I got the booster shot yday and it’s totally wiped me out.
