35 year old here. Any tips on how long it took you guys to get pregnant? Did you all have any prior issues? Any tips to help me? Also recommendations of prenatals? Would the ovulation kit help?
I really thought it would be wham bam , here's your baby ma'am.😒
Irony is I got pregnant once at 21 when I didn't want to and ended up almost losing my life with a complication. And look at me now, trying and clueless.
Which country is better to relocate - Germany or UK (provided the given salary or the savings are similar) for the long term?
Depending on the current scenario in UK and the Brexit, is it better to opt for Germany? Or, because of the language barrier is so high in Germany, and the cost of child education is also high, UK is still better? Also, any other factors to consider?
Need some suggestions regarding how to weigh in all the factors and choose one for the long term. Thanks in advance!

Is it normal for a big4 to take over two months in the interview process? Since end of January I've had five interviews w team members, including with the partner who leads the practice I'd be joining. Still no word. I've gotten nothing but positive feedback with the in-house recruiter I'm working with. Is this normal? Client base would be asset managers & PE firms.
Anyone else have a hard time enjoying their job after coming back from maternity leave? The constant stress and long hours are just not enjoyable anymore (if they ever were). What has kept you motivated other than obviously needing the income? I feel DONE with public accounting but can’t tell if it’s a temporary feeling or if it’s time.

If you have a point, make it. Rhetorical questioning doesn't help your cause at all, unless it's to convince me that you're a passive-aggressive tool.

Hi desi 🐠.. Can you trade stock/options while on h1? Anyone does this and know if any other special requirements on taxes/eligibility ?
I have lost all motivation to work and I strongly believe I'm depressed. The whole project is very poorly from implementation onwards and everyone involved is just so hostile all the time. I keep thinking it's because of their work pressure but it's getting to me. No support no help but manager wants me to be a SME but no KT or support has been provided thus far. My first few years trajectory were only upwards and now it's just plummeting downwards.
