Mamas, have you asked for a roll off or less responsibilities on your current project due to pregnancy symptoms like morning sickness?

I billed almost 300 hours last month and I think April is going to be a similar pace. I am so tired. Weekends to recharge aren’t a thing anymore. There is no end in sight. How do I keep this up? How do people do this?
Recently just swapped big4’s mainly for money / focus on work. Would it be career suicide to move to Arthur D Little (HCLS strategy), for another 40% raise..? Trying to talk myself out of it but the work, team, and comp seem appealing
