Mid-year review tips?
The billing guidelines for my client say they will not pay for parking or speeding tickets if you get one on a trip for them (I’m serious). Every warning has a story to tell, but I guess this is why people don’t like lawyers?
For insurance agents out there , I live in Florida ,what’s a better license to start off with? Life and health or p&c? Which do you find more enjoyable to sell and which would be more lucrative? Also , do any of you know of any companies that starts off with base +commission you can possibly refer me to ? Thanks in advance :)

Once I get my H1B issued, how soon can I apply for a greencard and how long does the process take from application to receipt of the greencard? For reference, I’m born Canadian (I think birth country plays a factor in this?) and is it better to apply through my employer or apply on my own?

Is anyone getting totally unrelated job opportunity inquiries for recruiters at Amazon? A technical recruiter just reached out to me for a Sr. or Principal PM job to a totally unrelated industry/function and I’m puzzled. Are they just trying to throw in a big net and see what comes up?
Anyone working on any OSINT projects?
Just moved here and with winter setting in need to get a good pair of gloves. Any recommendations for every day use for a guy?
For a writing sample: Is it better to use a motion that you won, or a motion that may reflect better writing/analysis, but that you lost? Does your answer change if the winning motion is more recent than the losing one?

How do you all decide which brand of fertility supplements to take? I’m thinking about folate, Coq10, etc. Feeling so lost 😵💫
Went for my first appointment after the egg retrieval and the doctor found a few cysts. So we postponed it to the next cycle. I didn't realise I would have to wait for another. He had given a birth control option but I just thought it would be better to wait for the natural cycle.
Can anyone educate me on these cysts? I dont find many articles about cysts after egg retrieval
Hi everyone, we are on our third cycle of clomid( no IUI) and appears I am not ovulating yet. What additional things you have done to make sure that you ovulate ( like Maca root powder etc.)

What are your thoughts on the Flo Tracker App?
F33 with PCOS. On a keto diet. Meeting my PCP after 3 years. Want to get a full body check. What all tests (especially given am on keto and want to monitor any adverse effects) should I request? Also looking to get pregnant this year. So what should I ask ?
Has anyone had a reverse flow of the ductus venosus? It was detected on the 12 week ultrasound. And we couldn’t do any blood work due to a vanished twin, so the next step is an early echo and amniocentesis at 16 weeks. Would love to know if anyone has dear with any of these things!
Any success stories of IUI with injectable medicines? I have experienced 8 fail IUIs with oral medication. Before I make the move to IVF ( not covered by insurance), want to see if IUI with injectable medicine can be another option.
For those of you who have had a miscarriage, did your cycles return to normal intervals immediately after your first period post miscarriage? Asking because I'm TTC.
For background, I was only 5 weeks along in my last pregnancy. Most info I'm finding online is about the first period after miscarriage, not the second
Third MC at 6 wks. First was chemical pregnancy, second was Turner's. On this one they said the baby was Male but I (husband) am missing a Y chromosome so I can't father any males. I have no idea what this means for our journey 😞
All 12 frozen eggs survived the thaw and underwent ICSI, fingers crossed for the next 6 days!
TTC for a year. I have PCOS and androgen burnout so going for HRT and endo exploratory surgery in July. A lot going on. Any experiences with endo/pcos and IUI?
I start my IVF journey tomorrow. Any tips or words of wisdom? Will be on menopur, Gonal F, ganirilex, and lupron. 36 F, I had 3 failed IUI and hoping for some magic with IVF.
Going in for my first FET today. This bowl has been so helpful and supportive in this journey so far, I wanted to thank you all and ask for your positive thoughts, energy, prayers, vibes, whatever. It feels so good to know I have this amazing group of women thinking about me and cheering me on.
Do you think decaf is safe during ivf? I don’t mind switching to decaf tea, but I do love the taste of coffee and don’t necessarily need the caffeine.
Is anyone taking CoQ10? My doctor suggested Theralogix CoQ10 which is quite expensive specially since I need to keep reordering until I get pregnant ( God knows how long). Any cheaper alternatives anyone knows about?
Hi all, I think I’m just in a funk from Lupron side effects and just feel down. Any tips on how to keep your mood up? I tried exercising but the meds got me so exhausted I almost passed out doing a 20 min easy peloton ride. Any suggestions welcome!!

You can also do an initial consultation w a fertility clinic without a referral from your obgyn. I’m an advocate for being proactive bc I feel like we wasted our time ttc naturally after finding out we have <3% chance at the clinic (32 yo F, 33 yo M).
I have endo and knew it could impact our chances. I went to 3 other obgyn before I found one who agreed it wouldn’t be a bad idea to go to a fertility clinic after ttc 5 months (I thought I needed a referral). Everyone else said I should wait at least a year.
What ppl don’t talk about is the 35 yo threshold for women is not an on/off switch. Your egg quality and chances of success with assisted fertility can change significantly YOY after 30.
I’d say if your obgyn won’t support your proactivity go find one who does or go to a fertility clinic yourself.
It’s a struggle for sure. We did a laparoscopy for diagnosis + treatment but it came back 6 months later 😭 currently doing ivf w 2 pgt normal embryos but I’m so worried about not having a successful transfer bc of endo
12 months TTC if you are under 35. Over 35 it’s just 6 months before they suggest you get tested. My OB/gyn ordered the basic fertility work up for me. It was just blood tests on cycle day 2 and 23, sperm analysis for my husband, and an HSG (dye in Fallopian tubes) X-ray between day 8–10. If there’s anything that looks off they will hand you off to a fertility specialist from there.
I questioned it at my OB/GGyn annual which was right at the 6 month mark, but I waited until 10 months (I was 36). And that was almost 2 years ago. It’s a long process of “hurry up and wait”.
You don’t need a fertility work up, but you could get your annual checkup and ask for preconception check. Fertility would look at follicle count, tubes open, AMH, etc. Preconception might check CBC, thyroid, and general physical checks.
Agree… the OB can order you preliminary tests, it’s not a full blown “fertility work up”. I didn’t mean to mislead!
I was diagnosed with what I call “low chance of natural conception” after the basic blood work and low sperm count numbers. We didn’t test beyond that. And also agree with others, you can get these tests on your own if OB isn’t helpful. Mine kept pushing for a few more months naturally, and once she got the blood work back she handed me off like a hot potato. It’s not really their field of work. Not mine at least!
Don’t wait. 33 year old female here dealing with secondary infertility. After six months of trying my OBGYN did a full blood work that revealed low AMH which diagnosed me with low ovarian reserve. It’s better to know early if you have any issues. RE specialist said if you don’t conceive within theee months of trying the likelihood you’ll conceive naturally is 15 percent or so. I feel like people don’t really know this.
Yes I would. Especially if you have any known conditions like pCOS or anything like that. Tell them you’ve been trying for a few months and just want to make sure everything is okay.
1) How long were you off the pill before starting to try? It can stay in your system for months after.
2) 12 months is the general rule for TTC before seeing a specialist. But, many of the top clinics take months to even get you in. Check in with a clinic around 9 months of trying and see when they’re available so that you can get an appointment right around 12 months instead of being stuck waiting 14/15
It may linger a couple of months more, but if you’re seriously trying and timing everything else, then I’d still do a fertility appt 12 months from now. Some of these clinics have such long lead times for appointments so the best thing you can do now is find the clinic you want and check out their lead times. I went through the same thing at 31 and glad we got in the door early, bc even pushing for first available for each appointment for IUIs then IVF, still took a year and a half between initial appointment and IVF embryo transfer (with 4 IUIs and then egg harvest in between).
Thanks all. This is very helpful!
In the same boat as KPMG1 so definitely get blood work done earlh
