Love my worn pants from loft. I have yet to buy a maternity-specific work shirt. I just have larger sizes and flowy materials right now. I’m 25 weeks along.

I’ve been wearing a lot of target maternity tees with my normal blazers. With accessories it’s difficult to tell they’re really just tee shirts. I’ve preferred this rather than making an investment in maternity work shirts

I wore betabrand pants in a larger size up until 8 months before only wearing maternity dresses since they are so stretchy. Old Navy and Motherhood Maternity had the best tops for me that I wore with a blazer or cardigan. Also check out ThredUP which has a decent maternity section.

MM and ON for me as well. I bought dresses from these two that I paired with cardigans or blazers to make them match the client. I think I bought 6 dresses and one pair of pants and rotated pants and three dresses each week.

I also saw that Stitch Fix has a maternity service too, but I haven’t tried it. Sort of making due with basic black maternity work pants and whatever loose shirts I have around

Hatch did a collaboration with J Crew—love their basic black pants. I’m 7 months now and huge and use Rent the Runway to rotate maternity tops.

Has anyone found a good (or any) maternity suit? I ordered the jcrew/hatch one and the proportions were comical (jacket hung halfway to my knees), so returned.

Motherhood maternity!

I bought some motherhood maternity dress pants from Macy’s that I like! I’ve been having more issues finding dress shirts I like. I bought a couple sweaters (also from motherhood maternity from Macy’s) and I got a couple basic maternity tanks from my sister that I pair with non-maternity long cardigans. I just basically repeat the same few work outfits every 2 weeks or so lol 🤷🏻‍♀️

Pea in the pod has awesome stretchy work pants! And they’re restructuring or something so everything was super cheap.

I know for a fact a parent has already made 2 complaints this year, but I feel like more has to be brought up.

Hey moms, How do contractions really feel? FTM and I’m starting to feel a little pain in the lower part of my belly.

Hypothetical here: you are a parent and your child got into two schools for undergrad. The first school is a US top 30 University out-of-state, but you have to pay full sticker price ($60k+ per year). The second school is a good in-state university and 20% the cost. If your child goes in-state, you agree to invest the residual ($50k per year) in an S&P 500 fund that releases upon graduation. What is the best outcome for your child?

I am currently on maternity leave. I missed utilization targets because of travel restrictions and was not rated highly for my performance last year. I am concerned I could be laid off when I return or before - my federal and state protection for pregnancy has ended. This is making me very anxious and not letting me enjoy my bonding time with my little one. Any advice on how I can change my mindset or be more calm is much appreciated. Thanks!!

My wife and I are due with a baby girl in few weeks. Still not aligned on the last name though. In our community it's the first name of the father which typically becomes the last name of the child. Considering she has put in most of the effort and carried the child for 9 months I strongly feel the last name of the child should be her first name though. I would like my name as the middle one. Don't see why this system continues to be patriarchal.

I’m mid-level in my HR career at my current company and an upcoming Master’s graduate. Studying for my SHRM-CP too. How did you make the transition to that next level?

Each time I ask for guidance on this from my manager, I get told they’ll look into it.... would love some external mentorship and thoughts 🙏🏼
