Any tips on managing demanding career / workload post-baby? Expecting in 2021 and already stressed about going back to work and delivering the same amount and quality of work as I do now (project sprints, evening calls, etc. are normal in my line of work year-round). Husband works in finance (M&A) and we don’t live near family.
I’m just so sick of seeing pregnant influencers with perfectly round stomachs frolicking around in overly fashionable clothing. I’m 8 weeks and because I’m on estrogen and progesterone I already have a stomach and am so bloated. I have acne and just feel like a total troll. I know better to not look at social media as a comparison but can’t these women do even a little bit to make pregnancy realistic? Or suggestions for some actually helpful accounts to follow?
Anyone at Accenture recently take paternity leave? The policy states for paternity leave, if you claim to be primary caregiver you get 8 weeks @ 100% pay. Thoughts on claiming primary ?
Are you for or against reparations? Why?
Found out today I’m 5 weeks pregnant. I am not sleeping well at night, feeling tired all day and at times about to fall asleep at my desk. It’s not affecting my work product per se but I takes me more time to go through things (I cannot keep a steady 8hr of billing). Should I tell the people I work with? They’re women with kids so I think (hope) they’d understand but I also started recently at the firm and the go-to advice seems to be just wait until 3mos…
How do you cope with being the primary income and not home enough? I enjoy having a career, but my 3yo behavior declined due to my long work hours. She’s an emotional mess with transitions and attention seeks. She is loved and snuggled at home daycare, loves preschool, but needs the time and attention from family to feel her best. I quit my job and took a few weeks off - start date tmrw for new job. In the few weeks home, she’s been like a different kid and 10x happier. I feel so guilty 😭

Started as a baby legal assistant about ten years ago at a transactional firm - now the majority (seven years) of my experience is in litigation. I am wanting to move more toward transactional or in-house now. Am I basically starting completely over? I am well respected and sought-out in litigation, but I'm unsure of how to market myself in the direction I want to go with as much confidence. Has anyone successfully made this move?

Does anyone else feel the need to agree with counsel for other parties in cases where there are dozens of parties? Or when there are many attorneys attending a deposition, the need to limit your questions to make time for everyone? I’m young and it seems like I feel that pressure more than other senior attorneys in cases, and I wonder if I should adopt their mindset. I just want to also look reasonable amongst other local lawyers and not pompous or unnecessarily combative.
I am 8 weeks pregnant. Just went in for my lab results and my progesterone is super low. This is a significant signal that the pregnancy is ectopic or otherwise non viable. We're going in for an ultrasound early next week to find out more.
Anyone else experience this? Would appreciate hearing from others who have been through a similar experience, especially getting some sense of whether there is hope for a viable pregnancy, and if it isn't, what aftereffects I might expect. 🙏
Hello Fellow Moms, ￼ My husband thinks i’m overreacting but I am alarmed and concerned. I asked my husband to spend more time with our son so he decides to take our toddler to an open soccer field while other adult players are playing games. I saw this from my window (we have a view to the soccer field) and I was furious. If a ball hits my child’s head —it’s bad news. Am I overreacting? I intervened but he refused to listen. going to bring this up to our therapist but wanted to gauge reactions

President Trump, please step up and show leadership. If you can sign executive orders protecting statues commemorating child traffickers and rapists due to the role they played in this nation, I am sure you can open the door for more meaningful conversations with the country. For a start, you can sign an order to better hold police accountable by mandating a federal body cam law... start somewhere sir! Please.
After starting solids my baby has little to no interest in milk. I always feed him milk before solids but he’s just waiting for solids 😅 is that ok? He’s 7 months.
I feel like my mum only ever looks for me when she wants money. Once i send it’s all good for her. I’m going through a lot being pregnant for the first time but she hardly randomly asks how I’m doing. Doesn’t even check on how preps for baby are going. PS my dad is late so she’s my best only parent.

Hi, what is the expected salary of an experienced senior or an assistant manager in Singapore (per month)?
I am looking to move to SG, and I got a positive interview with a Director from big4. He told me the next step is to discuss with HR for salary negotiation and employment pass, but I have no idea what’s the salary range there. I am a senior level 3 now.
Considering a 2nd home that would be a large historic home in a very, very small historic town with 1 or 2 restaurants and an ice cream shop. Would you all travel 3ish hours for a week away in the summer on the water with nothing around you? The home could accommodate multiple families so it would be a great getaway for groups. We have family in the area who would care for the home but I’d want it to be fully booked when we are not there to help offset the rehab investment.

Does anyone have experience with this - I am an elementary resource teacher and currently have a 1.9 caseload.

This is keeping me up. Is it okay to ask the school principal if she can have her camera off when she signs on to observe my lesson. I have anxiety about being observed when teaching virtually especially at the time she was available to sign on. Just a very difficult group. Despite trying so hard to engage them, they don’t participate and are withdrawn from my lessons. I just don’t want be so conscientious of her facial expressions should something go awry. Worried that it will make it worse.

This happened to me at my last school. Kid stabbed another kid with scissors and got to go to the principal's office and play all afternoon.
This was in primary grades
Yes he ruled the school
Could you be honest with your principal? Maybe he doesn’t realize the extent of the behavior? Good luck!!
