Just found out I’m pregnant but I have been having off an on back pain all over. It feels a little sore in certain areas. Not sure if it’s because I’m only sleeping on my sides or if this is common. Anyone else experience this before?

My kid is under two. Thinking about having another. I’m a compulsive overachiever at work, but also feel stuck and burning out. I ebb back and forth between wanting a job that’s a step up from my current gig (bigger title, pay, etc.), or taking a lateral move (or even step back) to just get my mental health in check and have time with my kid. Can anyone relate? I feel like a hot mess but also “leaning in” is getting me nowhere.

Seeking advice: anyone have experience dealing with a meddling sister-in-law (brother’s wife)? She’s constantly overstepping the bounds of what I think is appropriate (I.e., bossing around my elderly mother, getting rid of things without asking my mothers permission, changing my mothers decor). It just doesn’t feel right for her to do these things to my mother/interject in family affairs like this. Understandably brother doesn’t want to get in the middle of it. How to handle this?

Big picture question: How did you settle on a FIRE number? Originally I did the simple "estimated annual living expenses divided by 4% rule", but am now second guessing that for many reasons. For example, if I want to live on 70,000 per year, I'll need 1.75MM... but what if 70,000 in 20 years won't be a ton of money? Also, what about saving up for kid's college funds? How to account for the possibility of tax law changes? So many questions!

I feel like no one ever talks about low milk supply while trying to breastfeed. I’m a FTM and it was an unexpected pregnancy so as you may understand I didn’t know the several intricacies of pregnancy. Pregnancy was smooth and delivery as well, but postpartum has been a real bitch in terms of breastfeeding and in general bc of the hormones too. Ugh just needed to vent bc I feel like OBs need to be more educative of the process
