Graduated law school, passed the bar, and started my job last summer. My wife and I got pregnant with our first sooner than we expected, and we're due in June. Any general tips/advice?
Is it normal in a long term relationship for your significant other to not support what you do and talk to you like a child every day? We live together and I feel trapped. This is so hard.
Great quote form Mimi Slater of @cosbar on motherhood and work: “I don’t think my career path has changed because I became a mother. But, I think my approach to work has changed for the better. I didn’t realize how hard it would be to leave a 12-week-old at home, but I’m so glad I forced myself to get to work in those early days. It took me a while to get back into the swing of things, but now I think that being a mother is a total asset in the workplace. I don’t waste a minute of my workday. I’m better at juggling priorities, and I think I’m more empathetic, certainly towards other working parents.”

I’m a 30 year old insurance litigation defense attorney pregnant for the first time. Feeling like my career is over since my entire worth appears to be dependent on my billing. Words of advice?
As I get older and have less of the rose tinted glasses perspective that I did coming into the industry, I've been slowly becoming more worried about the potential for layoffs (not firing). I feel like it's normal and bound to happen to most people due to factors outside of their control, whether they're at an agency, client side etc. I think this comes from a deep rooted trauma as a child where my single parent became unemployed and we were homeless for a bit. But is this a normal fear?
What’s the parental leave policy at your firm? Maternity vs paternity? Is two weeks paternity leave pretty standard?
Earlier when child marriage was prevalent (Early or mid 20th Century): Marry at 15/16 ..Live upto 85-90 Easily. Now when life span has decreased due to various biological and climatic factors and illness: Marry at 30-35 ....Live upto 50-60 max. After some years, Marriage doesn't exist. 😂😂

So I started a new job in March and also got pregnant the same month. The new job is at a small firm and they never had a pregnancy so they do not have policies in place. Who do I tell? There’s one head admin person, two named partners one of which is generally MIA. So nervous about it.
Hi all! I was asked coordinate a local happy hour for my team. The issue I’m having is that I’m currently pregnant and am not sure if I’m comfortable to hang out with strangers. What’s the most professional way to say no without hurting feelings / burning bridges? Or should I suck it up and go?
Just had my second MC. Back to back. I waited a full year for my body to recover and be in optimal shape. My bloodwork was perfect. I did all testing with a fertility doctor. Everything was good. I got pregnant easily.. yet, I lost the baby at 6w5D. Last year I lost the baby at 8w5D. I feel so defeated. My heart can’t take more losses anymore. My first pregnancy was a breeze.. 2nd and 3rd.. ended in tears and sadness.
When you don’t have any work despite asking for additional work numerous times from multiple people, at what point do you: 1) continue to ask them for work, or 2) try making up work on your own (by looking at the shared firm calendar and seeing what deadlines are coming up and what items are needed) - a 3 month baby associate

What would be in hand salary for fixed 11lpa?
Day by day I’m just getting less and less interested in my job. I want to do something that excites me and makes me feel like I’m providing value to the company. Everything else about the job is splendid as I’m still WFH (2 years now) and it’s really flexible but I don’t want to just sit all day and work on fixing data problems. I want to make the switch to a new company but I feel like I have to finish a project that’s nowhere near done. Am feeling guilty? Thoughts?

After taking anti anxiety meds for my paralyzing panic attacks, I’m feeling so calm now (read: almost numb) and am realizing I used the anxiety as motivation and now feel like I’m much less proactive
I’m at the point that I start trembling every time I get an email alert. It’s the little things piling up that is getting to me. The to do list full of, “send emails to X about Y,” “follow-up re this,” “revise the 100 small things the baby lawyer drafted.” Tasks that might take 15 minutes to an hour individually, but all together it’s a lot. I’m the bottle neck. I’m the one who needs to move these things along. But there’s always something bigger and more urgent. Nothing’s ever FINISHED.
