Has anyone else heard of this happening. Eight month pregnant women let go as part of a round of layoffs.
I landed my dream job and had about a month in the office before Corona sent us home. It's been great considering pandemic etc etc. BUT...I'm not connecting with my team the way you do when you're new. I see lots of virtual HHs and I'm not getting invited. I don't think it's me...I think I'm siloed because I'm newish and WFH and these people got to bond in the office. Anyone have tips for the new kid trying to make office friends while stuck at home? 😔
Going to a competitor. I told my PML about 2 weeks ago and have been on a parental leave and will officially put in notice when i return from LOA. PML is saying i need to put in notice now since i accepted offer from competitor and they will shut me down ASAP and that i shouldn’t have taken my leave. Is this really an HR thing or my PML bullsh*tting me out of spite?
My almost 4 MO EBF baby is spitting up all of a sudden after every feed. He used to have occasional spit ups ( once per week ) but suddenly it’s almost an ounce after every feed and he looks so uncomfortable before spitting up . He doesn’t roll over either ways and our pediatric nurse is like it’s probably GERD don’t mind. Waiting to talk to our usual doctor next week. Anyone else face this ?
36F. Don't want kids. Am constantly judged by other women about this decision. My SM in particular talks about how there must be something inherently wrong with women (not men mind you) who don't want kids. That child free women will never be as strong as mothers, etc. Makes me really want to knock her upside the head. That is all.
‘Twas the night before Christmas and I have not clue what to do... It’s my first Christmas tomorrow (because I’m Jewish) with my Catholic boyfriend’s family. All I know is that we are going over to his parent’s house tonight and then again at 2pm tomorrow. They won’t be attending Mass this year due to COVID. What should else should I know before 6pm tonight?
Any good recommendations for parenting 101? Looking to educate myself on the major schools of thought and parenting styles and figuring out what might work for me (baby’s not here yet). Thank you!
So I’m watching the Wayen’s brothers and haven’t watched this since I was a kid. Obviously, as a child you don’t fully pick up on the heavy themes interwoven to the show’s slapstick or exaggerated comedic nature. Black exploitation, integrity and whatnot. But I’m happy to say, although it’s hard for younger ppl to fully understand. It sits in the subconscious. And in ways, sometimes small, sometimes big.. it influences for the better. Content makers. Be aware of what your putting into the world.
Hey 👋🏻 So, to all of the female fish who have endured pregnancy… I’m 10 days late, not using any protection, but keep getting that familiar feeling that my period is about to start. Kind of crampy, irritable, bloated… But it still hasn’t started! I’m very rarely this late. Usually only by a day or 2. I definitely *feel* like I could start, but I know that pregnancy & period symptoms are sometimes indistinguishable… My dumb question is: could I be pregnant if I feel like I’m about to start??
Not looking forward to Mother’s Day and any half-ass (very likely no) attempts of my kids to recognize me/the day. I’ve cherished and saved all the MD gifts they brought home over the years—every drawing, poem, clay pot... They are teens now and I’m an afterthought at best while they are still the most important things in my world. This mama’s heart aches for all I give and for how little they seem to care. Remember to love on your moms tomorrow.
For those of you who switched to decaf, I found a really delicious Ethiopian decaf coffee https://www.gocupper.com/collections/all-coffee/products/decaf-ethiopia-guji I don’t think I’m gonna go back to caffeinated coffee even after I have the baby. Without caffeine in my body I sleep better now and have even better energy ✌️✌️✌️
Scared to send my kid to school
9 women pregnant for one month each doesn’t equal a baby... like, lets do this right guys.
I had someone from school flame and unfriend me on Facebook because I said jobs are the best way to help someone go from low income to self-sufficient. And this was after I had her child in school and was told I was a great teacher.
Ladies - when did you guys let your employers know you were pregnant? I don’t want to say something too late or too early.
I just watched my exes graduation live stream and I’m so fucking proud of her and all the hard work she’s accomplished!! And I just wanted to let everyone else know how proud I am too. BSN BABY!! (4 yrs ended on good terms)
Anyone buying Baby Bitcoin?
I'm Becky and I teach in a play-based public school preschool in Minnesota. This is my 24th year, all in 0-5 and parent ed!
20 weeks preggo and my 2 year old fell on my belly. 30 lbs, direct hit to my belly. Petrified it’s caused brain or placenta damage. Baby is moving fine, no bleeding, no fluid leaking. Waiting to hear back from my doctor. Has this happened to anyone?

I think I've hit the threshold where the number of foursquare checkins I have at airports went from being cool to depressing.

I want to switch to one of the top 3 firms (McKinsey/BCG/Bain) - hoping for an honest answer - do you guys do lateral hiring from other consulting firms at associate level?
How common is it to use a personal credit card for expenses?... Thinking to ramp up personal Chase sapphire points.
I wish every Sunday could feel like this. When you've just rolled off a project and in the pleasant shade of some beach time
Sometimes I feel I’ve been staffed on the client site just to be seen walking around the halls. The vast majority of the work I’m doing could be done remotely. I’m no different than a potted plant.
