16 weeks and so worried all of the stress I’m under is going to hurt the baby. Between work, my own scary (non-pregnancy) health stuff, the pandemic, my mom (who is a widow and lives alone, basically isolated by choice due to covid) is having health issues, and pressures to keep billable hours up, I’ve been having complete breakdowns. Today I spent almost the entire day crying and now have to make up the billable time this weekend. I really worry abt what effect this will have on the babe.

People say MBB has great exit opps, but none of the “sexy” ones thrown around (e.g., PE, PM) directly translate from consulting, and the those that do (internal consulting / corp strat) aren’t met with much enthusiasm. What am I missing?
