Been at one agency for well over a decade, from baby planner to leading my region. I'm thinking about making a move. How do you think a "one agency career" looks on the job market? Yay or weirdo?
Hi Fishes, Is anyone going through a divorce? I have a very demanding and a conservative in laws place and husband is not supportive. Contemplating leaving the house. I have a 3 year old daughter. They basically want me to quit my job and do household work. I am scared to do that coz I know they will start loading me with work and ill treat me. I am lost and not sure if I can survive a divorce.
Anyone ever had trouble with a doctor not wanting to certify a family member’s condition, in order to take a leave of absence? My brother attempted suicide via drug OD (he was addicted) and he’s been hospitalized for over a week with seizures, psychosis, peeing blood, etc. We have visited him every day, driving 100+ miles round trip. The doctor is giving my father and me grief, saying (quote) “you aren’t providing care, the hospital is” and “there’s no reason you can’t go back to work.”
Really in two minds about having kids. Never felt maternal in my life and my freedom and own time are important to me. At the same time, I’m worried I would regret the choice to skip motherhood - that I’m overthinking and maternal instincts would kick in naturally. Has anyone been here before? How did you make the choice (if you had the privilege of choice of course).
What are your thoughts on splitting everything 50/50? I've only dated men who take pride in being protector and providers but now running into men who want everything split 50/50. It is a turn off for me. Am I being unreasonable or have I just been spoiled previously and having a tough time adjusting to reality?
I am 27, M and, come from a middle class family. Completed my bachelors from a T2 college and earning close to 20 LPA. I don’t look extremely good but okay. I live with my mother. We do own a house and have been investing aggressively. What all qualities girls look for in a groom? Is it a good time to get married? Is it really okay to not get married? I mean, my dad was abusive and my mom ran away and took me with her which makes me think what if my marriage also failed? TBC.
When did you actually start showing when you were pregnant with your first (without sticking out your stomach and without just looking like extra chub in your mid section)?
I’m 21 weeks pregnant and about 4 months in a new job. When/how should I tell my team and leadership?
Please comment on this thread if you would like the bowl to provide an internet picture of what we think you look like, based on our interactions with you.
I am 23 weeks pregnant with my first... And I'm not feeling baby kick. Should I be worried? The internet says you should feel the baby kick between 18-22 weeks, and to call your doctor if you don't feel anything by 22 weeks. All the online forums say they felt their kid kick at like 16 weeks. Additional context: At 20 week ultrasound, she was moving fine and the ultrasound tech was surprised I couldn't feel her then, which is why I haven't been worried until now...
Stupid question but am new mom… if my kid has an earache and fever and we can’t send him to daycare, is there backup daycare where they send someone to your home an option? Guessing not but just seeing if anyone had this experience …
I just got out pranked by my parent’s neighbor’s kid. I didn’t think unemployment could get any worse

Pregnant first year (10 months old) associate from PwC. Should/Can I take part-time work schedule during the third trimester? Thanks 🙏🏻
Seriously considering smoking pot for the first time in my life. I lost a parent earlier this year, my anxiety is through the roof and I don’t want to drink because it’s making me gain weight. 😩
This may sound dumb, but I don’t want to ask friends yet. My husband and I have been trying just for a few months to get pregnant. I am now 4 days late and I’m wondering if it’s too early to take a test. I’ve never been late in my life, so it’s all kind of freaking me out. But I also don’t want to get ahead of myself.
Looking for baby stuff and not sure what to buy and what not to buy!! I am in the same boat and hence, I created a new bowl to share ideas/recommendations!
