Hey mommas - My baby is 14 weeks old and I haven't gotten my period back yet. I'm worried I'm pregnant again. When did you get your period back? For context, I'm breastfeeding but not exclusively (I am pumping and nursing as much as I can though). I've been on the pill since 6 weeks and my husband used condoms for the first few weeks once we started again. Surprisingly, I can't find anything online that's helpful. Any sense of a timeframe would be tremendously anxiety-reducing!
How would you feel being invited to a late August wedding where the couple asked that you be vaccinated in order to attend? Let’s assume honors system. 150 people invited, all outdoors. 25% of guest list are doctors. Mostly progressive crowd. No kids.
Holy cow I’m so excited and need to tell someone! Got a positive pregnancy test this morning! Shocked because 2nd month of trying after baby #1, who took many years and IVF before success. 🙌🎉
My partner and I had an unplanned pregnancy a couple years ago. I was always very pro-choice, but when it came to me, I couldn’t go through with abortion. He really didn’t want to be a father, and was v angry. He committed to stay, but it is over a year post-baby, and we haven’t been intimate since our son was conceived. He told me last night that he doesn’t know if he can be intimate with me again, bc I broke his trust by keeping the baby, and if it were to happen again, he wouldn’t survive.
Are you vaccinated? Will your students have the opportunity to be vaccinated before school starts?
I absolutely love my mother, but lately I feel that I have surpassed her mentally... it’s hard to explain. Has anyone else had a weird realization that you are smarter than your parent(s)? (Honestly)
My kid is moving up to the next classroom at daycare next week. Is it weird to get the old teachers a little thank you gift? We love them and will miss them. Any ideas of what to give?
How are your firms responding and messaging to employees about the legislative attacks against LGBTQ+ folks in Texas, Utah, Florida, etc?
Help? I returned from maternity leave this week and it’s killing me to hear kiddo cry in the house while I work. I know baby is fine- dad does a stellar job, but I just hurt to hear him at all. 😣
My SO and I are going to get TSA Precheck passes. Will our 14 year old be allowed to come through the line with us?
My parents always be using kids against me like “when you’re a parent you’ll know”, and then get so offended when I’m like “then I’m not having kids then, lol”
Idk what’s wrong w me. Maybe a mild bout of depression or burn out. But I don’t feel emotionally resilient anymore and cry very easily especially when mother decides to give me “feedback” and then gets upset if I ask her not to. I’m so self critical these days and just oscillate between trying to be cheery and feeling down/not like myself. Any advice on how to rebalance and stop crying/emotionally reacting? I know my moms in the wrong but I can’t change her defnof tough love. Just my reaction 🤦♀️🤷♀️
Ladies in relationships or married what are you thoughts on this? Saw it this morning and my own mom has told me this for years but for some reason it feels like settling to me... My mom said it’s what helped her marriage to my dad and she eventually loved him... after like 3-4 years of marriage (+ a baby) and literally trying to run away from her own wedding and hating every second of it. I’m like this sounds like misery 😔
I would really love to have a second baby but I’m a bit afraid as both my husband and I are over 40. Looking for key things to consider from anyone who had successful late pregnancies. Please advise!
I got an offer from bytedance and literally just found out i may be pregnant, any idea on how that might be perceived in Bytedance? PwC (my current employer) is extremely supportive of people taking unpaid leaves for pregnancies and it doesn’t have a huge impact on career- but I’m hoping I don’t need to base my decision only on this 😳
Trying to consolidate my mom's parent plus loan with my personal federal loans. Is this even possible? Anyone have any experience with this and able to give me a little advice?
Just found out my wife is pregnant with our first child. I'm very excited about it but also feel the nervousness of adulthood and starting a family. Any advice from any new moms or dads out there?
Thoughts on Evian's new baby ad?
Maybe we should implement something like automatic posts refresh? I got a notification about "someone like mypost" but it isn't displaying at the post title...

When my Nest Thermostat is on learning mode, does that mean I’m paying for my gas heaters all the time every time to be on? Just worried about high electricity bills with the learning mode on. Or should I just switch on when needed. But the house is big so it takes hours to heat:)

What kind of quota does a Deloitte SM (in cloud strategy if the matters) carry? I have a $15m quota in my current role. Asides from ability to meet quota I think I'm too young and it will be a con... I'm turning 29 this year and I'm 5 years out of college. Deloitte
Can you be forced by your company TO work double duty ? Example ; you are already managing and running an account / engagement and expanding account and fully billable (more than 100%) in efforts, can you be asked to mandatorily take up 2-3 more accounts and engagements ?
Input from fellow expats in the US: As an expat in the States, how much would you prioritize getting the green card? I got 2 offers, both great companies, I’m equally excited about the opportunities. One can sponsor green card 6 months upon joining. The other one can sponsor in 12 months. I am currently on L2 EAD, my partners job has some turbulence, they can only sponsor our green card in 3 years. I am thinking of choosing whichever company gets us in the green card process first. Thoughts?
