Two questions: 1) I’m pregnant with my first baby (16 weeks), any advice on when to disclose? 2) Does that timing advice change given our current COVID circumstances? I’ve been WFH since March, and while the Firm hasn’t indicated it’s going to require us back in, a handful of partners I work have started to mention it. I’d like to nip that talk in the bud and feel like a reasonable way to do that is to disclose. Thanks in advance for any thoughts?

Has anyone gotten paid leave (a few weeks) from their firm to study for and take a second bar exam in another state before formally requesting to transfer to an office in that second state? I realize firms will have different policies, but I’m curious to know how others have handled this. I’m looking at signing up for a February bar exam, and for personal reasons, it’d be easier to move late spring/early summer. Also dealing with the possibility my firm will deny my transfer request.
I’m planning to visit my parents after 2 years. Last time I went home, it was with a fiancé - that fell apart during COVID.

Any advice is appreciated!
