Registry! It’s a lot of effort to go back and buy everything I want on the registry with the gift card

like

If you are buying online you have to enter a card in anyway…🥴

Gift card because there are 100 things you don’t know you need until after baby is born. And when it’s 4am and you’re buying 3 different swaddle in desperate hopes for baby to sleep, a gift card is great. Or when you find out baby hates the bottles you bought, gift card saves the day.

If they have a registry it’s for a reason! Use it or cash.

I called my mom “mama” growing up. Some kids called their mom “ma” or “mommy.” lol

Registry, I have found gift cards so hard to use online

Some online baby registries have the option to give gift cards too. You might not have to choose between the two options, LOL.

Could use some encouragement. I billed an enormous amount last month because things were on fire and I’m the baby of the firm so I got tagged in on a number tight, high pressure deadlines. Many, many 14+ hour billable days. Mind you, I’m a single mother with young kids. Today I got pulled aside for a chat about how some partners feel like I was running behind on some assignments (no deadlines were missed—some got pushed when new work was added).

I was contacted by a recruiter just before I went on maternity leave.

Second, I feel like if I’m doing all this interview/material prep, I should go all in, apply at other big companies and try for multiple offers.

How do you navigate the holidays, with or without kids? I tend to be pretty busy over the next 3-4 months and I always try to make as much time for family as I can, but it seems like it's never enough. My mother in law is pretty old fashioned and I can tell she thinks it's wrong that some nights I'm home late during the holiday season or when I work in downtimes during family holidays. My partner is incredibly supportive but I still feel some guilt over it.

Baby coming in August. Mom won’t get Covid shot. She gave my brother a hard time 4 years ago not wanting the flu shot but ultimately she gave in.

Is “pregnancy brain” effecting your performance? I started a new job and literally got pregnant the same week. Between fatigue, illnesses, & stress in general I guess I haven’t been performing as well. I thought I was pulling my weight, learning, and contributing lots of value to the company but I just received my 6 month review and it was terrible. My boss said I lacked energy, creativity, & attention to detail. In former roles I’ve always received positive feedback and exceeding expectations.
