Shameless company plug, sorry y’all. But Morgan Stanley just rolled the FRM Experienced Professionals Program. This program is designed to recruit and develop diverse professionals regardless of whether they have a background in Finance or Risk Management. If you’re interested just dm me.

I’m 11 wks pregnant and started this new project right as I got pregnant- it’s been such a tough project and I’m not able to keep up. I’m not sure what to do - I’ve totally fallen behind and am not sure how I’m going to be able to proceed. I need something slower paced. Do I tell them I’m pregnant or do I just keep trying to do my best. 😞
Help / advice needed pls! I started a new job a few weeks ago and a few days before I started I found out that I’m pregnant. It’s my dream job and I’m loving it.

Second problem, I have to go into the office in a couple of weeks and I’m starting to show. But I’m not ready to tell them yet. This situation is incredibly awkward and stressful.
