Hi ladies, I am nearly at the point where I want to start having kids. However, I have made a career change somewhat recently (about 1.5 years ago) so I am not really experienced in the tech industry. Would having kids be detrimental at this point in my career (is it always detrimental)? Has anyone had experience of having a big career in Tech and being a mum? Any tips or advice?
Note: I do have a very supportive husband but his work is not very flexible necessarily.
Did anyone exclusively bottle feed with formula from birth? I’m made to feel like an amoral freak for considering it. I am fully aware BF is best cos of antibodies and bonding etc but I have a previous issue and need to consider formula + bottle as an alt. However *every* article I find or attempt to read up on this assumes you’ll only do it to supplement breastfeeding.
Are there *any* formula moms out there whose kid turned out OK?
Last week I was given amazing news that I was pregnant. Today, after my repeat blood work results, I was told my HCG levels aren’t rising adequately. I am crying in the bathroom stall at work.
I recently went on disability leave and my boss Auto forwarded my emails to my coworker. I have plenty of emails that I need to access that have to do with my getting appointed with the carriers and policies that I have signed for groups.. How do I approach this ? I am upset that he didn’t even tell me. Didn’t clarify weather it’s a standard thing or not so as to ease my mind, etc. NOTHING! Jerk doesn’t care about my success
PSA: Your pregnant coworker is juggling fatigue, nausea, aches and pains and/or “pregnancy brain”, along with their workload in a pandemic. So if they’re performing as usual (or better), that’s nothing to sniff at. And if they’re sometimes not performing up to par, cut them some slack okay? Sincerely, your pregnant coworker who initially underperformed but is now kicking butt.

I just got a second $500 as a child tax credit. This is a credit against my child tax deduction for 2021, right? Weird that people like us are getting checks from the gov, but I guess its faster/easier than means testing.

Talk to me about going from 2 to 3. I feel like 3 kids is such a rarity in this industry that it’s daunting to make the leap. I don’t know a single person in my office with 3 kids. I worry 3 is going take our lives from semi-manageable chaos to complete anarchy. But… I think we want a 3rd. My kids are young (toddler and baby), and if we do go ahead we’d want to do it in the next year or so.

I'm 13 weeks pregnant and have enough energy to work out again! does anyone have recommendations for a great workout program / app for pregnancy? was doing BBG previously but want to explore options
Scored my first gig in advertising as an intern at BBH NY like 10 years ago. Part of the application asked for an original poem and I happened to be watching 16 and Pregnant on MTV. The preggo teenager was cursing out her partner so I wrote down the lines in all caps and got a call the next day.
So I just found out I’m pregnant and yesterday was my last day at my old agency. I’m starting at a new agency in a week. Talk about timing! At this point we’re not planning on telling anyone until 13 week mark. Not sure what I should tell my new job. Now I’m concerned I may not be eligible for maternity benefits since it won’t be a year when this baby comes. My head is reeling.

Anyone had sexual performance issues on generic adderal (dextroamphetamine) that made a switch to something else and didn’t have those issues? I only take my meds 2-3 times a week to avoid the lethargy, but by that second or third time in a week I have issues.
Was on adderall throughout college, but didn’t like how my body responded to it. After joining the workforce full-time, I think I need to start medication again. Any softer meds that work for you?
Anyone here tried Strattera?
👋🏼 do any of you use a planner? Either digital or paper? I'm looking for a nice planner for 2022. Something that will actually work for me, since majority of the planners it there aren't always suitable for us with ADHD (at least that's been my experience)
I am currently using the daily planner by Ivory Paper Company (https://www.ivorypaperco.com/daily-planners) but it is way too big and expensive.
Newly diagnosed & medicated and new to consulting.
I’m great with clients but getting bad evaluations because I’m slow to produce work and don’t take time to communicate status.
I’m trying really hard but I keep getting stuck in perfection loops and scared to share things before they’re perfect.
Did you struggle with this & find a way to improve? I’m terrified I’m going to get counseled out, but I love this job so much.
Did I act irrationally here? I had an initial consultation with a therapist the other day to get a referral to a psychiatrist for BD + ADHD. I've called them to get the appointment set up but no response. So today, I found a new provider and was able to get an appointment booked directly with a psychiatrist next Wednesday.... Do I just tell the other provider I'm no longer interested?
Actions are probably bc of ADHD....🙃

ADHD advice and suggestions for consistent high-performance on an important 60-80 hour work week project?… Medikinet (concerta) helps with focus but makes you feel bit more tired/lazy, so would you add a bit of modafinil? Anyone mixed these two?
How did you get your SO to better understand ADHD? We’re getting married and he’s very patient and understands with me. Just wondering if there is a resource to help him understand that this is an executive function disorder and my brain is wired differently.
Does anyone else just have one day a week (Saturday for me) where they are just a full zombie and have to decompress and sleep from all of the burn out?
Any of you also take anxiety meds? I don’t think the adhd was my root cause and distraction seems more of a symptom of anxiety. Doc started me on buspar. Any others?
Has anyone had a Manager that does not work well with your ADHD? Im going through this right now and the way they communicate doesn’t match what I need. If I ask questions, they huff and puff. But then get upset if something is done and it doesn’t meet their exact expectations. It’s sucks that I don’t have enough interest to continuously focus on the projects, but now I have even less motivation because I dread dealing with my manager.
I started Vyvanse two days ago and have been getting really bad headaches. Has anyone else experienced that? 🥲 I have been drinking water and eating protein but I feel awful, had to take the afternoon off
Took my first pill of Vyvanse 20 mg this morning. Recently diagnosed. Never been on ADHD meds. What should I expect in terms of effects? Took the pill at 7 am. Its 11 am now. Dont feel anything different. Had a cup of coffee too. Any tips would be much appreciated. What should I watch out for? Trouble sleeping, racing heart, mood changes?
What about positive effects? Do you start seeing effects (increased focus) right away or it takes time?
Any alternatives to addreell

It's easy even if you don't have documentation
You can do it online with nothing but your medical history and an explanation of the problem to a doctor. If you already have a primary physician I would just discuss it with them and they will probably write you a prescription. Just started again after not taking any since before middle school, I'm 29 and it has been crazy to see the change in my behavior.
You'll likely have to be diagnosed again, or at least have your prior diagnosis confirmed by your new doctor. Shouldn't be too hard, though. My diagnosis with no documentation was relatively straightforward, and I had no issues getting on meds. Kudos to you for admitting that you need help and doing what you need to do to get that help.
I'd rather not bring my medical history records because you will get likely to be diagnosed with a recurring issue. But i think, you can still manage with conventional remedies. Have you tried doing yoga? It helped me maintain the normal function of my brain.
Going to a physician and getting rediagnosed would be your best bet. You'll get to see if it really is just a recurring issue or something other.
