Anyone have experience dealing with a kidney stone while pregnant? It is a nightmare. I've been given narcotics for pain, but of course am very hesitant to take any
Not sure if anyone has experience with this but figured I’d ask. My 8yo daughter has been gaining weight over the last 2 years. Started during covid being home a lot and I guess eating more than normal. Schedules now are back to normal and she’s still gaining. I’ve gotten rid of all unhealthy food in the house but she will eat a lot of everything, always wants seconds and very hard to control. I don’t know what to do. Is it too early for a nutritionist?

Have any of you experienced your wives raising a wall around her after the child is born. She doesn't feel the same way with me and ofcourse there was some family drama but she mentions she wants to be left alone..any suggestions?
My wife and I are planning on having kids soon. I’m building a new practice at a new firm. Any advice on juggling both and setting up boundaries? Do I take a week/weeks off when baby is born and just recognize probably no bonus this year? (Salary is good, I’m not desperate for money.)

Anyone here adopt a puppy during the infertility struggle? Husband and I considering it to have something positive throughout this situation and thinking the extra companionship would be helpful. I work from home. Husband has had many family dogs and lots of experience with it, I’ve had a family cat before. But not sure if it’s actually a good idea - wondering if it would truly help make us feel better and keep our minds off of the struggles or if it would just add extra stress. Thoughts?
How do you deal with the worry of having to provide for your family when your parent(s) are struggling to start a second career? I feel selfish & don’t even think they’d accept my help but I’m scared.

I work in a smaller town with less than 10,000 people and I just found out my shift schedule will be changing, and at least three days a week I'm working my kid's school drop-off time in the morning. Do you think it would be unprofessional to request that I run home in the morning, grab my kids and quickly drop them off at school or ask about making other tweaks to my schedule?

If you don’t have 8 hours of billable time a day, do you leave as is or do you fill in the gap with non-billable work? While I am in the office, I don’t always get the billable amount since I don’t have enough work. Seems like a waste of time to enter non-billable time just to fill in the gap but I also don’t want them to think I am not there and slacking off.
What’s the norm?

Post-undergrad, I was at Accenture for 2 years and now at Deloitte for 2.5. If I take an offer at BCG, could there be a perception of me being a job hopper and would this negatively hurt my career down the line? I work as a software developer as a bit more context

Hi there - Has anyone enrolled in graduate programs through Harvard Extension School? One area of focus for my current work is corporate sustainability, so have been looking at getting my master's online through this program: https://extension.harvard.edu/academics/programs/sustainability-graduate-program/. Since it's job-related, Google will pay for part of it.
But curious of the value / impact of Harvard's online degree programs and would love some first-hand insights. Thanks y'all.

Facebook wants me to interview for a much lower title than what I currently have at Google. "Without 5 years of experience, your chances are slim for this position" is what they said when I applied. Do they really think that is supposed to entice anyone?
Hey all, I’m interviewing with Goldman Sachs this week for marketing division and would appreciate any tips.
Genuine question. How do you feel about a looming recession? What are you ways to prepare for it? What are you telling your teams?

Considering how intensely the OB office said I need my blood drawn at exactly 1 hour after glucose drink, would a 4 min blood draw delay skew my results? Not finding any current research.
Hi! I’ve seen a lot of posts about the Uppababy Vista stroller but I am actually leaning towards the Cruz and planning to buy the Nuna Pipa Lite car seat with it. Would love to hear any user reviews for either of these products - thanks!
In my third trimester (8 weeks left) and feeling so overwhelmed by impending motherhood. I’m trying to absorb as much information as possible, have taken a birth class, Tinyhood classes, read articles and parts of parenting books etc and still feel utterly unprepared. I consider myself a quick learner but I can’t shake this feeling that I have no clue what I am doing. also stressing over things like, what if our dogs don’t like the baby? How do I calm my anxiety :(
Had the craziest experience today at 1st ultrasound. Measured 6w5d (what I should be based on FET) but sonographer told me HR was 87 (low). I was hysterical (had a previous MMC after an initial low HR) and doctor came in and rescanned and said everything looked perfect and HR was 119 BPM! I am trying so hard to take comfort in the second scan but this is so stressful. Please send positive vibes my way 😭😭
I just had my nurse phone call where they ask you all sorts of questions. She was so rude 😐 anyways first ultrasound is scheduled for the 17th.
Week 6 and can hit very dizzy spells. Anyone else experience this? Is this the nausea side of morning sickness? I can’t even look at my screen let alone run a call
TW: weight, weight loss
curious how much weight people have lost in the first trimester due to nausea, etc? im toward the end of my first trimester and I haven’t experienced any vomiting but the lack of appetite and aversions have caused me to lose about 10 lbs since my last ultrasound :/ I’d normally be celebrating this as I don’t mind the numbers I’m seeing but I keep worrying about whether baby is getting enough nutrients 😭
We need a lot of help with babies and kids, especially when both parents are working. I know this because i have a 4 year old. But i am still healing from the struggles of trying my best to raise the kid and keeping everything afloat.
While we are planning second, i don't want to be struggling for air like the first time. And i know its going to be even crazier with two kids. I am anxious
So, where and how do you find help? Did you do it on your own, if yes, how on earth without going mad?
Starting a new project and it’s something I’m super interested in. The team seems great but it’s really fast paced and I’m starting to feel stressed. I’m 12 weeks and starting to feel better physically but worried about the work stress during pregnancy. Anyone in a similar boat?
When does morning sickness begin? With my first I started getting really nauseous around 6 weeks? I’m now approaching 8 and not really feeling much. Kind of nervous I’m losing the baby :(
Can't tell if I'm starting to show (only 10w, first) or if it's just that I haven't done a solid workout since the news 😅
Playing a game of "Food Baby or Human Baby"
Serious question- how on earth do first time parents pick out things for a registry? Like if you haven’t managed your own child, how do you know if you like this carrier or that? This lounger or that? Do people just trust their closest friend/advisor and mimic their decisions? I’ve spent so much time reading the diff bw strollers (which clearly is the hardest decision) - bloggers, Buying Guides, etc- and my head is going to explode 🤯. Gift cards it is 😆
Losing all focus at work. Just a month away from our due date and I can’t muster a care in the world about KPIs. Anything to help with it? I still have a job to do…
Currently 30 weeks. I feel movements in the very lower uterus, more towards the back of my belly, and sometimes I can feel movements against my bladder that made my urinary tract feeling weird. Anyone had the same feeling?
