I have been having a healthy pregnancy but going into my third trimester I’ve started to worry more about the health and happiness of my baby. My husband is in his mid-40s, I’m ten years younger, and I’ve read more about that being linked to autism and schizophrenia. I know this is not something I can control but I can’t stop reading about it. Wondering if others have gone through these worries?

This is outside of your control and far from guaranteed. If it makes you feel any better, I’m bipolar, my brother is bipolar, I have 3 bipolar aunts, 2 bipolar uncles, I have 4 bipolar cousins, my 91 year old grandma is bipolar. There’s an increased likelihood that my twin sons will be bipolar by virtue of our genetics. That said, my mom was able to raise me and my siblings on her own to all be highly successful adults. We all are self sufficient and largely healthy with our mental health under control. We all have a life very much worth living.

A1, would you mind if I sent you a DM? I think my husband might be bipolar but undiagnosed and trying to determine what reasonable steps are to even get him evaluated. Therapy has helped and have made him a psychiatrist appointment so hopefully that will be a step. He has these crazy mood swings with these angry outbursts (yelling, etc) and erratic behavior then same day acts like nothing happened.

What medication do you take? I’ve often wondered about being undiagnosed bipolar.

Today I spent almost the entire day crying and now have to make up the billable time this weekend. I really worry abt what effect this will have on the babe.

Hi mamas! I just had my first baby 8 weeks ago and I’m looking for some ideas on making a career pivot.

I wanted to make the change sooner but with FMLA benefit eligibility rules I was forced to wait. My question is what type of roles offer flexibility (e.g., WFH) and decent pay ($80k-100k) without having to devote time to going back to school?
