Has anyone who has been successful in getting pregnant after taking letrozole and who is continuing to take progesterone tablets taken the covid vaccine? After a few tries we have gotten pregnant and the hospital (Kaiser) is recommending she takes the covid vaccine.

Do you lose maternity benefits if you make partner? I’m up for partnership this year and my firm doesn’t know I’m trying to get pregnant. I’ve heard people say in the past they lost all of their accrued vacation when they became partners because they are no longer employees. Do partners get paid maternity leave where you are? Would I be entitled to FMLA protection? I’m our breadwinner so losing 24 weeks of paid leave (mat+accrued vacation) would be a big hit.

Today is rough rough! It feels like everyday is the same thing and having a hard time getting excited to get out of bed. I have a new baby and she’s healthy, new home, and I’m lucky to be on maternity leave.. but I somehow find ways to focus on everything that could go wrong. Damn it Covid!

Help / advice needed pls! I started a new job a few weeks ago and a few days before I started I found out that I’m pregnant. It’s my dream job and I’m loving it.
