Not sure if this is the right channel, but I had a question for my fellow HYPs (hot young professionals)
I work at a scale up, I have lots of options and stand to make some decent money if we get bought. But from what I can see there is no chance of us getting bought. B2B SaaS, 25% churn, 692 customers, 11M ARR, no product market fit, lots of tech debt, and things seem to be getting worse. We got a series A at $20M and a series B at $20M a year and a half later. Any insight for me?

Random thought. I would describe the tiredness you feel in pregnancy like a heavy stone tied to you that just drags you down and you’re too tired to care or try to fight it.

For me it’s not super constant or frequent but when I get that tired I feel like I become part of my mattress. 😂😴

First time pregnancy and about 9w along. I’m curious about genetic testing - did most of you opt to do the basic NIPT around 10 weeks? There are other more comprehensive options around 12-14 weeks, but think I’d prefer to go ahead next week. Any pros / cons to think about?
