Any suggestions on returning to my nursing career after a 2 year maternity leave? Thanks in advance!
Ladies who are pregnant, are you planning on heading back to the office with uptick in Delta? Even if vaccinated? Our RTO in NYC is set for next month (I doubt it will happen).
Hi! Have any pregnant moms gotten covid recently and encountered loss of smell/taste? If so, how long did it last? Asking for a 4m pregnant friend who is vaxxed/boosted but in the thick of COVID right now.
I’m a single mom of a young boy. My child is delayed in speech & receptive skills. I work full time & a full time mom w/ no family help. Im feeling very resentful towards my sons dad. He leaves me with all the responsibility & he is the pop up when convenient dad. I’ve tried communicating and nothing is changing. He doesn’t acknowledge my outreaches to him. I won’t hear from him for a few days. I did to him what he does to me all the time for one day & now he’s being xtra petty. Can any1 relate?

The military saved me. I'm serious. I brought so many conflicts into the service, my father was an alcoholic, and I was an opioid addict. I've been clean for seven years thanks to my training. Forever thankful to the troops for that.
Has anyone successfully negotiated to be exempt from the 1 year of service before you’re eligible for maternity leave policy?
Working moms, why are we not accommodated FULLY for nursing breaks? My last employer allowed break accommodations for me to nurse my child, but my current employer does not. They state that they do not offer break accommodations for nursing moms bc federal law only says that we are allowed to have an extra unpaid break for nursing. Still, bc I am not salary, it means that I would need to make up the time I took for an extra break at the end of my shift = longer days in the office. Currently ...
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?

My best friend is finally pregnant after years of trying and a few miscarriages. She moved 2 hours away from me this summer, but I still want to be there for her and support her in any way I can. Any tips or advice for supporting her down this new path when we see each other less? This is also my first friend to have a baby so it’s all new to me!
I have a governmental entity client in Texas that wants to offer 6 weeks of paid parental leave for all employees, even those who aren’t eligible for FMLA. After the paid 6 weeks, the employee can choose to continue paid leave using any accrued personal leave.
Texas does not have a paid parental leave statute.
If paid leave above what is required is offered for parents, do we also have to provide the same benefit to other employees that are eligible for unpaid leave?
My sister is having a difficulty getting pregnant because her eggs are not maturing. Anyone here has or had the similar issues?
Texas is coined a football powerhouse, but I’m having a hard time finding teams/events for my elementary school student. Can anyone point me in the right direction in the loop or in the Galleria area? Bonus points for facilities/areas in the loop where Black boys and men play/gather. I’d love my son to have that sense of community as he’s the only Black kid in his class, and we haven’t met many Black families at the closest local park to us. Black is not a deal breaker though! Please share.
Did yall hear about the Chicago mom who had her kid taken away because she wouldn't accept that her child was transgender? As a parent, that's actually kind of scary that the government would that with no basis of abuse or neglect. Smh

What's the best strategy for getting relevant Investment Banking/Capital Markets related internships (specifically in the fall)? I would even do some freelance research for no pay I just need experience in something other than FP&A (which is partly my role in my internship this summer). I would love to start in investment banking/PE but I'm afraid that graduating in three years makes getting relevant intern experience incredibly tough in such a short time frame. Any advice?

Did Deloitte have a late-night Uber policy before the pandemic? Joining in a month and also moving and wondering how much I should consider it.

Hey MBB folks,
I am working in a boutique consulting firm and have applied for the Associate - PIPE position (McKinsey - London) Recruiter has scheduled a call with me next week. Seems like a screening call. Yet to apply for BCG and Bain.
Can someone from each firm shed some light on below:
1 - Work life balance in PEG and PIPE
2 - Pay
3 - I know Bain is strong but I think Mck and BCG are equally good or they are not?
4 - Can I become generalist in case I feel burn out after some time?
I just realized I'm over paid for my role. By a lot. What do I do? Can I negotiate a lower pay?

My almost 3 year old loves his crib. It’s pretty a apparent that it makes him feel safe at night. I stupidly did not buy a crib that coverts to a toddler bed and he has no interest in sleeping in his big boy bed. We also need to potty train him.. I know he will continue to wear a diaper at night but I dont like forcing potty all day then Trapped in a cage at night. Am I over thinking this? Is he ok I’m the crib till he’s ready or any tips to make the transition smoother?

Bored at job doing moderately tedious and stressful work for 120k, but I’m wfh, job security good, 9-5, a few opps to learn new skills if motivated. Debating job hunting since toddler who nanny is watching will go to daycare in a few months and I’m expecting to have more free time. I like set hours, but I want a pay raise and hopefully work on a project I can learn new skills on. Concerns: losing work life balance, upcoming recession > layoffs of higher paid employees .

Has anyone gotten in better shape while pregnant? I gained 20 lbs since March 2020 and stopped all of my workout classes with COVID. Was juuust about to get back into yoga, Pilates, and barre then found out I’m pregnant. I *need* to get some strength back but don’t want to overdo it (ftm at 37).
Me. It is the best gap. Where the first doesn’t feel the jealousy and by the time they get older they are used to the other sibling being around. Don’t worry about the leave. I used to panic but you shouldn’t have to pick between a career and family. You can have both
🙋♀️ The baby is 4 months now. The first 2 months were rough but once we got to ~10 weeks and got more of a schedule, things got A LOT easier. I found out almost exactly a year ago and I was terrified and I had a hard time getting excited at first. However now I can’t imagine anything different and I can already see the two boys being best buddies!
My husband and I want to do pretty close together but with breastfeeding I haven’t gotten my period back. Did those of you with kids 18 months apart get pregnant again while breastfeeding?
Having them so close also is awesome in terms of forcing the routine is easier. Everyone sleeps and naps together etc.
I had to get fertility treatments and the unknown of how long it would take is what caused ours to be so close in age. However I have several friends who have "Irish twins”, despite breastfeeding
Sure. What finally worked for me was fermera. I would take that for 5 days and then was monitored every other day through blood work and ultrasounds. Once the follicle grew to the desired growth, I would then trigger with a medicine called ovidrel. The cycles can be long and the constant monitoring takes a toll on you. Giving blood has become painful. The side effects are eh. I don’t sleep well, moody, some weight gain but anyways for the those tiny humans
The above method is “timed intercourse”. It took me +2 years for my first. 1st cycle for my second. If the last cycle for my first didn’t work, they were going to think about IUI/IVF
My older daughter and my twins are 16 months apart. It was painful the first year, as one of the twins had some issues, but 7 years on its fantastic
C1, about a month after weaning completely
Mine our 20 mo apart. The youngest is almost a year now, honestly it’s been tough. My older one is a just a very strong willed and emotional at times so I think his personality is a huge reason it has been so challenging.
Just had my 2nd ten days ago and my first is 18.5 months. I am out on mat leave almost a year to the date that I came back from the first. So... my initial thoughts are - it takes some juggling. We haven’t yet been able to get on a routine. And the toddler really requires a lot of attention once baby arrives. My toddler was not clingy at all, no real separation anxiety and pretty social. Once baby came, wants to be held all the time.
My husband is also consulting but took two weeks pat leave so here helping for now. I don’t know how to manage when it’ll just be me.
That said, when toddler gives baby a kiss - heart melts
And worried how it will go over at work.... Only been back from maternity leave 4 months...
No... I didn't get my cycle back until I completely weaned even though I had been supplementing with formula for months.
D1 would you mind sharing more about your fertility treatments? What type and did you get it for both pregnancies?
How long after weaning did you get your period back
I didn’t have to wean completely but he was starting to wind down/drink whole milk with occasional nursing. Got pregnant 2x later 🙈
