Dears, I've been contacted by a company, they like my profile on LinkedIn, I've done the 1st interview by telephone, they asked me to make the 2nd interview directly with the supervisor and the HRD, we arranged the 3rd interview, but the HRD called me to inform that she couldn't meet me and told me that she'll call me after few days... After that, they "ghosting" me! I called the HRBP one week later, but he replied that he'll call me ASAP. What should I do? May I call the HRD or should I wait?

Additional Posts in We're Pregnant!

I’m currently 22 weeks pregnant and due in mid-December. I will be on leave during our performance review period and just started at my company in April. We have “development check ins” this month to discuss career growth and development opportunities and I need to come prepared to discuss my career goals. The thing is my main goal at the moment is to maintain work life balance through the rest of my pregnancy and I am struggling to come up with anything more to say. Any words of wisdom?


Hi everyone. When did you actually apply for maternity / parental leave? I am a FTM and not sure when to notify HR more formally. I have told my immediate project team and manager and slowly sharing more widely with colleagues and leadership. I’m 22 weeks.


6 weeks pregnant, but donnot have pregnancy symptoms like nausea or morning sickness.
I have fatigue though,but tbh, that has been constant and normal since i had my first and she is 4 now.
Breast are slightly tender.

Did anyone else had no major symptoms during early pregnancy? Is this normal?


Those who had their babies, are you guys making your whole family take tdap vaccine? Like parents, in laws, siblings? We haven't asked but what if they dont want to?


My husband has been expressing some concerns about whether he'll be a good dad - because he wants to be the best. It's kind of cute actually, but he really is looking for some support. Are there any good books or groups or anything for men in this regard? Thanks!


Had a baby boy yesterday! He’s beautiful. My wife is a rock star. And I’m not sure how I’ll ever leave them to go back to work


Looking for a pediatrician in Hoboken/ JC. Any recommendations?


I’m 15 weeks this week and we just told some friends of ours the exciting news… except one of them texted me after the fact to say “I did notice that you were getting ‘bigger,’ but I just chalked it up to the stress of your new manager role. Glad to hear it’s bc you’re pregnant!”
Um, maybe I’m being sensitive, but that seems a little rude? At this point, my weight gain does look just like bloating and not a bump, but who says that out loud?


What all do you take for vitamins? I’m on a prenatal and my doc said nothing else is necessary but curious if others have heard different.


Back sleepers, how did you manage to not sleep on your back later in pregnancy? I keep waking up, conscious that I'm on my back, and roll over on my side, but the cycle repeats because I keep ending up on my back.

I'm only 16 weeks, but I've been trying to train myself to sleep on my side for about a week since I know I'll need to later in pregnany. Not sleeping on my back is way harder than I thought it'd be.


What’s in your hospital bag? I’m not sure why but I’m having a difficult time packing mine. Almost 37 weeks and need to finalize this thing!!!

Any tips for managing exhaustion in the 3rd trimester? Just entering the 3rd trimester and all I want to do is sleep. so my work, baby preparation, and ability to take good care of myself (cooking, working out, socializing) are all suffering. Any tips on how to pivot out of survival mode?


Feeling extremely sad... I just went from thinking I potentially had one baby, to two babies to possibly none.

Yesterday I received results from first Ultrasound and was told that I might be carrying twins.

Went to get a second ultrasound today and was told there's no visible heart beat/yolk sac, meaning either my dates are off, miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy.

Does anyone else have similar stories?


Do I have to stick with the facility where I have my first ultrasound? Or can I shop around?


Am I the only person dying from a three week heat rash? Never dealt with this prior to pregnancy.


How bad is contraction? I’ve heard that the contractions can be in and off for many many hours. How did you manage to go through all the contractions? Thanks!


Anyone else dealing with terrible foot pain and have any suggestions? It’s not swollen or tingling. I elevate my feet daily, never walk barefoot, and make my poor hubby give me rubs. I’m assuming it’s just from the extra weight because it just feels like I’ve walked 10 miles even though I am not even that active 😅 help!
