my first trimester I was constantly nauseous/in danger of vomiting (my "morning sickness" was the worst from 11-3) and could barely stay awake for more than a few hours. To say nothing of how insane my mood swings were and how often I had to pee. Every pregnancy is different, but it felt impossible to be a semi functional human with what's considered being fully resourced today (wayyyyy too much work/meetings/emails) and the general lack of respect from overly reactive junior coworkers. And that was before I could tell anyone about it.

👆🏻I’m in my third trimester and still dealing with morning sickness although much better than before. For 15 weeks I was literally throwing, thinking about throwing up, or falling asleep. Now it just creeps up on me randomly but otherwise I’m exhausted, uncomfortable, and dealing with reflux. It is no joke and trying to act like it’s no big deal is depressing.

It was horrific. I used to hold on to the edge of my desk fighting the urge to close my eyes (or throw up). I also had the nose of a blood hound, and it seemed like everyone in the office was doing a weird duet that involved cooking and eating lots of eggs. My brain also turned to mush. Don’t think I came up with one half decent idea in 9 months. I genuinely couldn’t do it again. So yeah... I feel you!

yeah that's just started for me. My response: "yeah it's really weird."

Diet not duet !

Is IB worth the sacrifice of WLB? Obvious pay is really good but are the prestige and pay worth it if you’re planning on only doing it for a couple years?

Currently working at an IRA with great WLB. Honestly I love my job, the firm, and people I work with.

Also doing MBA part time at a T15 school. Thinking about switching to IB but I’ve done my research and I think I would burn out of IB in two years but I might be ok with that for the opportunities after.
