What types of clothes did you find were most flattering? I’m not planning on buying a whole new wardrobe but would like a few outfits that make me feel great. Thanks!
Senior, pregnant and worried about busy season because half the seniors in my practice quit in the past two months. Directors have said to seniors “brace yourself”. I am already stressed and high risk and off my ADHD meds and struggling a lot to get work done. Is it worth taking maternity leave early and “screwing over” my teams? I feel guilty. Doctor suggested to take medical leave if I am struggling. Need advice 😢

Looking for some perspective. I have a 3 year old and we’ve been trying to get pregnant with a second for 2 years (IVF, miscarriages, pandemic during which we lost our nanny and daycare for a while, a long long 2 years). I’ve stayed full time through all of this and I am exhausted to the bone. Cont...
Need some advice! I’ve been in a serious relationship for a year. I grew up in a traditional south Asian family where no one discussed relationships. My older sister never introduced any of her boyfriends when she dated them either. But when my parent got divorced, my mom became way more open minded about things. So I want to tell her about my boyfriend. I’m still kind of nervous though. Anyone gone through something similar/any tips to navigate the conversation? Going to see her later today.

My dad and I don’t really connect on a deep level, but I can tell he is hurting and this is going to be rough for him. Any advice on what I can do for him? Anything your kids did when you lost your parent that comforted you?
Expecting my first child in a couple months. Parents in India have been dying to come to the US but unable to due to the visa restrictions.

Moms, both husband and I are nearing the end of our parental leave. We live in a two bedroom in NYC. We are thinking of hiring a nanny. The plan is that I would work from one room and husband would work from another room. We can move the changing table and pack n play in the living room, and the nanny and the baby can hang in the living room. Does this sound like a good plan?
I have a guy friend who texts me on a daily basis. I’m happily married with a kid and he is in a relationship too. He tries to pepper his texts with something sexual and it’s starting to get on my nerves. for example, if I say it’s nice weather out he will then tell me to sunbathe nude. the other day he said he’s happy with his relationship but misses the thrill of new sexual flings. I have no interest in this man and i’m not sure why he continues to text me. he is also a partner at a firm (cont
Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
What age were you when you had each kid? I'm 32 and we are trying for our first. SO is 36. But the endless relentless lectures from the women of my family about why "it's so late! Hurry! It's going to be impossible soon!!" is driving me insane. Ideally I would want it to be planned and natural, not IVF or anything, but you never know.
