Nobody has ever sent a text message celebrating a Bengals playoff win. Let’s keep it that way. Just win, baby!
My husband has a strong sense of duty towards his parents - I’ve been very encouraging of it - making sure he has the freedom to be there for his family and parents in whatever way they need or want (e.g. sleeping over at his parents at least 2 nights, attending family events, making sure he goes to all their doc appts, maintaining a relationship with his sisters and their children, etc). His family and I are not from similar backgrounds so we have our struggles so I keep a distance (more below)

Did you ever have thoughts of divorce within the first year of your child’s life? This has been so difficult (not parenting, but managing our marital issues) and even with therapy it has not gotten any better.
Any pregnant or recently pregnant ladies out there? How did you get comfortable enough sleep in hotels? Extra pillows? I feel like a whale...
Wife and kid are going to be out of town for the next 2 weeks. Instead of wasting time, I’d like to do something productive. What would you do if you have say 3+ hours a day. Maybe self help, wealth creation type books, work out daily, take care of some things around the house.
Hi, looking for recommendations for a therapist, ideally NYC -based but also someone who does remote sessions. Mostly looking for help with severe anxiety, depression, and maybe cognitive behavior therapy. BCBS insurance. I’m a single parent, and I’m struggling. Thanks in advance.
I am 11 weeks pregnant with history of miscarriage and termination due to abnormal 12 week ultrasound, hence considered as a high risk pregnancy. I just received green light that I made to SM. My project is already crazy with long hours daily and now having made SM starting June, they expect me to take care of more that one project and RFPs to build business. Any advice on how to handle this situation considering I want to communicate my pregnancy post 20 weeks?
Really need advice/opinions. My close friends are having their wedding the day of my son’s 1st birthday (poor planning & lack of consideration on their part). I could move the bday to the following wk but I’m 1) hurt they didn’t ask if we could make it if we’re in the wedding party 2) already canceled our gender reveal, babymoon & baby shower last yr due to covid & this is the ONE thing i was looking forward to now that we’re vaccinated. Moms what would you do? How would you feel about this?
Looking for advice on how/when to tell my bosses I’m pregnant. I’m only 8 weeks and have my first doctor’s appointment this week to confirm the pregnancy. We haven’t told any family or friends yet. We have been back in the office since June, so I’m not working remotely. I plan to wait until 12/13 weeks to tell anyone at work. I’m 29 and a 4th year associate. I do work for 4 main partners, though I have closer working relationships with some more than others. Any advice appreciated!
What is Accenture's parental leave policy..
Having lots of thoughts about my career and the “right” time to have a baby. I’m 27, husband is 28. We both have baby fever and feel ready to grow our family but I’m nervous that having one too early could impact my career growth... Any advice from moms who had babies around 27 or those who decided to wait? Would you have done it differently??
Brenda's got a baby.
I reached a breaking point today at work and now I'm drinking away my sorrows. Have a list of about 10 things to do over the weekend that will likely take ~6 hours to complete. Can someone adopt me for a few years? I want to not work.
I am newly pregnant, vaccinated and boosted, and trying to figure out if I need to stop going into the office and increase the medium level of COVID precautions I had been taking. I had previously been going in 2-3 days a week and working remote the rest of the time. Also my husband travels a fair amount for work and idk if he should be trying to limit travel/office time as well. Will ask my Dr too but curious what level of advanced precautions others in this situation have taken. Thanks!
If your company offers paid parental leave, can you share some insight into your policies or implementation tips? We're thinking of offering it concurrently with any existing paid parental leave at the state level, so the employee is covered 100%.

I work for a small boutique firm and been seeing that there are some unethical practices and not much business in the pipeline. Should I mention this as both or one of the two reasons for leaving in my interviews? Id turned down a few recruiters a couple months ago saying I’m not looking to move so out but want to reach out to them now.
I was just bitched out by a PM who (according to his LinkedIn profile) was a student four years ago, while the people pleaser baby ACD nodded and placated the PM. Some jobs you earn the bucks...

Serious q: I'm choosing between a two BI/Ops type roles, one in a FAANG in Dublin, one in a less-known corporate in London (where I'm currently based). FAANG pays 70% more and is a more interesting / more senior role, but I'd prefer staying in London where all my friends are / where it's warmer and sunnier. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna take the FAANG role, but has anyone else struggled with this type of career vs. personal life trade-off, and how did you reason about it?

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
