- Hop on a call to discuss resume /behavioral prep / the firm
- Share tips for the new BCG interview format

So I made it through the two week wait. Positive pregnancy test (hooray) now I’m nervous for the next 8 weeks of course.
Any recommendations on what not to do? I’ve been told I can exercise, have sex, and do all my normal activities, but I’m nervous. This is my first child, and my first positive pregnancy test. 36 years old. Any advice would be great. I know I’m prone to a miscarriage due to my hormone levels so I’m trying to be extra cautious.
