I’m 31 weeks pregnant so everything makes me super emotional right now. I just overheard a co-worker basically brag that by the time he gets home every night his kid (3 year old) is already asleep. The thought of that made me cry. I really don’t want to get home every night to my kid already sleeping. When do attorney-parents find time to actually be with their kids?!?

Guys if you are using apps such as Grindr and Scruff, please be careful. One guy that I was chatting with on Scruff in Pittsburgh found my Facebook account and since my profile was public, he found information of my family members and threatened to send pictures, chat history to my family members. Lesson learnt - make your social media accounts secure (don’t make your Facebook profile profile). He has blocked me since then, so I couldn’t report his profile
