Bake? I showered, drank a cup of coffee, and had a light sandwich because I knew they wouldn’t let me eat once I got to the hospital. I didn’t need a distraction I guess, I felt pretty good and ready for the baby to not be kicking my bladder.

To the sarcastic/offended moms, some women are able to bake during early labor (sorry you weren’t able to!). It’s a technique recommended to distract yourself.

An observation: I realized today that unless someone mentions their gender identity, I assume every post/comment I read on FB is written by a woman (apparently my default lawyer is woman) EXCEPT the whiskey bowl, where I assume posters are male. Implicit bias is weird. (Whiskey bowl not only lawyers, so maybe that's part of it.)

At a company where you really need to “build your platform” (e.g., a big client) to get elected into the partnership. Have had several kids in the past few years and every time it sets me way back. I come back from mat leave and essentially whatever spot I had is gone. I know it’s “my choice” to have those kids but it’s frustrating that my company claims to want to support women/moms but I am essentially penalized for having kids. Am I wrong to feel frustrated by this? Any advice?

I took 2 positive pregnancy tests after our first attempt to get pregnant (!). I’m happy, but pretty shocked as we expected this to take a few tries (I have underlying medical history) and it feels a bit surreal. I think I’m also having an “oh sh*t” moment thinking about how we will actually balance our dual careers in demanding industries. Would love practical advice/ real life examples of how other dual career couples have made it work, esp in consulting, and hopefully some positive support :)
