I like Lands End - I need a rash guard as I’m extremely fair and they offer a lot of mix-and-match tops/bottoms/one pieces/cover ups. Don’t beat yourself up about the baby weight. Motherhood + pandemic + social distancing requirements + career = really rough time to find ways to lose weight. You’ll get there in your own time.

Target has some good mix & match swim pieces or one pieces, check out Kona Sol and Shade & Shore brands I think.

Anyone decide not to BF right out the gate? Please no judgement I have made no decision yet. Halfway through pregnancy and already tired of sharing my body, and husband and I want to share feeding duty equally (ie not with me pumping / being attached to baby). I realize there are significant benefits to BF which I wouldn’t take lightly in the decision just hoped to hear from anyone else who opted out from the start.

I’m in my mid-40s with a 7 year old and baby. Is it too late for me to back into public accounting? I was laid off last year and found a great job in a large bank. I miss the flexibility, challenge and rigor of PA. I would love your opinions. Has the ship sailed for me in PA? If I go back I would be an experienced senior; maybe, a year or so from manager.

FTM and first one in my friend’s circle to have a baby. Feeling pretty lost on when to do what. Like when do I sign up for a Lamaze class, and do I even need it. What other classes I need? And is my obgyn going to tell me when to start with the perineal massage. I am not even sure how I know of these terms but what if there is something out there I could do or I need to do and I don’t know about it.

How safe is Houston downtown for a female staying alone with a young kid for a few months? Being very close to the office and daycare, and availability of public transport (doesn't drive) are reason for preffering downtown. However, have been reading about the recent crime surge there. If someone is generally back home by 8 PM or earlier, and will probably take Uber locally, is it still risky. Also welcome any good apartment suggestions. Thanks

Vax question: my state is finally letting me get the vax. I am hoping to do it this weekend (J&J).

Will the J&J vax cause a false positive on my COVID test? I don’t think it will, as it is a viral vector vax and not a weakened version of the virus, but maybe there is someone on this app who knows the real answer.
