So I forgot to calendar some new dates for a property sale at work. Now my boss had to work on Friday and today to fix my mistake. Not lots of work but just like I wanted her to give final approval before I sent out some required notices. I’m a 6th year and feel like such a failure. Like who forgets to calendar stuff?!?! Me. That’s who. I just found out I’m pregnant and I’ve been so ill with morning sickness and that is absolutely why I messed up at work. Any tips on how I get over this?

I am in my third trimester of pregnancy and I do not have the same energy anymore. I get tired very quickly and do not feel like myself. My company is mandating going to the office 3x a week. My commute is 50 mins each way.
Is it to early to ask to be fully remote? I also got into a car accident in March while omw to work and feel hesitant to drive every time I go to work.
I want to ask to be fully remote as there is 2 more months for me to go. Is it a fair ask?
