Any advice for going through fertility treatments, especially out of state, when you already have a child, and with a FT job? I feel overwhelmed thinking about starting this process again. Oh, and I work in office 5 days a week. Obviously never been through it with a child. And now my doctor is out of state. Help. HSG and ultrasound tomorrow…then next steps.

Anyone else stuck in a job because they don't want to lose maternity benefits?
I'm actively looking to have children. Medical advice tells me not to put it off at all, it's now or potentially never.
I have been approached about new jobs, have found jobs that are perfect but they don't offer anything above the statutory mat payments unless you have been there for a year or two at least. As the main breadwinner stat payments would be devastating for us.
Anyone else stuck?
My maternity leave is ending soon. Any advice on how to make the most of my time before returning to work? I’m scared about the upcoming transition.

Need your opinions. Wife is currently 14 weeks pregnant and I’m expecting a job offer in the next week or so. Do I sign and accept an offer and then tell them about needing to take paternity leave once I begin or do I discuss this before I accept? Not wanting to start off on the wrong foot but don’t want to risk any potential offer
What should I request for Mother's Day? And why is it always Mom's job to come up with gift ideas, even gifts for herself? Wish my husband and 12 y.o. would put some thought into it & surprise me instead of asking me to pick my gift every year.
Hi fishes 😊
Anyone interviewed recently for a PM position at Adobe or just works there? I had the 2nd round and I know the next will involve me presenting a business case to a panel of 5.
1. Any idea of what the business case can be?
2. What is their general outlook on parental leave? In the 2nd round I basically told them that I am pregnant and willgo on mat leave in March. I wonder if I will be dismissed just because of this or I still have a chance...
Anybody else here quarantined with an elderly parent and you’re the sole caregiver? How are you staying sane?

What do you do with a senior manager who seemed lost all the time? Granted he is new in the engagement - we both are. We talked through things a couple of times but he does not seem to understand it and keeps on asking about the same things. Does not know what is happening on the file or does not seem to care to learn about it. Would only know about things that come through his emails, and would only care where things are at when we are reporting to the partner.
Thoughts on the use of any variation of the “n” word in our community? For it? Against it? Don’t care?
Just curious - If you had the option between filing employment based adjustment of status OR family based adjustment of status, which one would you do and why?
Things to consider - ROW applicant, timeline (which one is faster?), job change, ease of application
