Pregnant and in first trim with severe nausea. Was put on a team that is super understaffed and have hard deadlines like every week as the client is going through diff transactions. Partner says I can log off whenever I need but Sr manage keeps pushing work to my plate and asking why work is not finished. How could I deal with the situation? Should I just tell partner I need to roll off the team?

Thinking about an MBA but failed accounting in undergrad... Basically, I got a D in my accounting class but ended up with a decent GPA (3.67).

Ladies—I am terrified of flying—particularly the parts where we are not over land and the parts where turbulence is really bad. I literally just sit on the plane, staring at the map on the tv screen, with anxiety. I’m supposed to be flying across the world on a 14-hour non-stop flight in 2 weeks. I grew up moving/traveling and therefore flying a ton but always hated it and was scared. I haven’t been on a plane since September of 2019 (due to covid and moving to the same city as family). Advice?
