Is there a way to use WFH to your advantage — like prepping scripts for things you want to say so there’s less on-the-spot interpretation? Do you work with anyone else who has been pregnant and might understand?

I have adhd and am also pregnant. I mention adhd because I’ve being clear and succinct on the spot can be a challenge. Generally, before I speak, I write out key points that come to mind, so I don’t ramble or get off topic. There is usually a bit of time between someone speaking in a meeting and me responding that I can get away with this. Otherwise, agree prepping your key message s/ points in advance really helps.
