My spouse was just diagnosed with COVID-19. Only symptom has been nausea and vomiting x 1 day. Terrified not knowing if or when Ill get it living in the same house. Wondering if I should move into hotel for a few days? Anybody else with a similar experience or advice, with positive family member?
Husband and I have been on a long journey TTC, and haven’t been on a vacation since September, just before we found out about our second trimester loss. Now, he doesn’t want to plan any trips so we can save $ for IVF - planned retrieval in late March. Would you recommend we do *something* to get out of town, or will I want to hunker down as I go through retrieval(s) and transfer? It’s been a long, sad slog.
I caught Covid and now I have been having sharp shooting pains in my spine for three days. How long does this last? I am bedridden and there is no way I am working tmr.
How do you deal with parental guilt when you have to miss things? When my child was a baby it wasn't as big of a deal as long as I was around for the big stuff and was pulling my weight parent wise. Now that they're 4+ everything is big stuff, and every time I can't be there it really affects them. I know being successful in my career will set them up for the future, but it feels like I'm letting them down right now.
Hey Grey 🐠- What's your parental leave policy?
I feel alone and lonely. When will my life get better and happier? it’s work, sleep, walk... rinse and repeat. this covid situation is not helping.
I’ve had COVID the last 5 days. I’m finally better and all I want is a chicken biscuit.
Screw you Chick-fil-a and your perfectly delicious chicken biscuits. Why aren’t you open today? God isn’t THAT important.
Moms, what is your opinion on goat milk formula? I am hearing conflicting things. My baby’s pediatrician did not recommend it, because these formulas are new and not enough studies have been done on them (as opposed to Similac and Enfamil which have been around forever). But I’m also hearing from some people that it’s closer to breast milk and easier to digest for babies. Have any of you done any research on this and have a perspective to share? Many thanks!
I recently started a new job as HR Generalist at a small government contracting company. I only make about $66k/ year when previous i started closer to $45k but as a single parent of a kid in daycare, im struggling. I want advice on the best way to build my career as fast as possible to reach by goal of making $100k within the next 3 years in HR. What should I do to further myself professionally as fast as I can? SHRM classes? certs? PHR? all resources welcome!
I feel very lost. I just started as an associate at a big firm this year and have a one year old son. Learning how to be a mom and an associate has been extremely tough and I have felt burnt out on multiple occasions this year. Prior to having a child, I was a very determined individual and was used to saying yes to almost everything because I wanted to accomplish those things. Nowadays I feel like I don’t care about my job as much and being away from him gets more and more difficult.
So covid creative is going to be a longtime reality—and ideas how to handle? Seriously struggling with how to refresh concepts given the lengthy news cycle...and people are hungry for more. Right?
Travel day yesterday…
Left my suit at home, had to go back to get it. No Clear line so I had to show them my Drivers License in precheck, which I then forgot to put back in my wallet and left at security. And this morning realized I didn’t pack a dress shirt…
How the **** did I do this every day for years pre-covid? 😩

How do you deal with explaining why you want to leave your current job when personality conflict is one of the main reasons? Partner is just not a good person and does not seem to be able/want to refrain from verbally abusing people. I know conventionally people advise against mentioning it, but seems difficult and almost disingenuous to cite lack of opportunity or other reasons entirely. Any advice?

Having twins! 10 weeks pregnant. Meeting with genetic counselor tomorrow to discuss testing options. I’m honestly leaning towards CVS… I want to know as much info as possible at highest accuracy. Did anyone else opt for that kind of invasive testing? Why/why not? The fact that I’m having twins is what’s making me want to jump to that level of invasiveness…

26.5 weeks pregnant and feeling this lower abdominal pain (under my belly button). It comes and goes. It’s coming in waves and goes away but I can feel it’s there waiting to flash another wave, if that makes sense. I read online that women go through Braxton Hicks contractions. Is that how they feel like? Baby moving as usual so I know (guess) is fine.
