I'm 13 weeks pregnant and have enough energy to work out again! does anyone have recommendations for a great workout program / app for pregnancy? was doing BBG previously but want to explore options
Which of the following is a better option:
1. Great house in a safe gated community, in Gardena in low 900s
2. Average house in Torrance for 1.2M plus
Family Income : ~250k
1 kid, ready for school in 2023
If you recently had a baby, would you tell friends/family they needed to be vaccinated to be around them?
How do people deal with a really crushing, can completely, unfair loss? Filed a motion for temporary child and spousal support and the judge ordered my client to pay more than his salary. Obviously will be filing a motion to reargue and possibly an appeal. But those take forever and in the mean time I have a very upset client. It’s such a misapplication of the law and a horrendous judge but it’s hard to explain that to the client who is obviously very upset and can’t understand how this happened
I love my kid so much. He was with me throughout all of elementary but has been at the middle school for the past 3 years. He had only a handful of kids he knew from our elementary. He made all of his new friends on his own. I have been meeting them one by one and am sooooo impressed with their character, manners, interests, and grades. He chose his friends wisely! Anyone else experience this?
When should Dads-to-be tell their employers their wife is expecting? This is going to be my 2nd child but unfortunately I’m new to my job (currently 6 weeks in) and we’ve been totally remote so far. Coincidentally sounds like we’ll be going back to the office around the time my wife is due.
Wife hates me. She thinks I compromised when I married her. I didn't find her attractive but thought we were a good fit. Married over for a few years with kid on the way. Need suggestions.
Ladies - I remember seeing some book recommendations of the self help / why are you the way you are / etc variety that had something to do with being a high performer as a child. Now I can’t remember or find what I’m thinking of! Any help?
Deloitte consultants who took maternity leave. How was the transition back? How quickly were you staffed?
Moms of fishbowl - what is the best bottle warmer and sterilizer? I’m due in February, planning to do a combination of breast milk and formula (to ensure baby gets all his nutrients one way or another). We bought the baby brezza advanced with WiFi for formula, so more focused on a warmer + sterilizer combo thatll work for breast milk (and specifically thawing breast milk too). Seems there aren’t as many options for combo products with sanitizer, so maybe I’m asking for too much. Suggestions?
Pregnant FTM here, 15 weeks: currently in a 1br small NYC apt, husband wants us to relocate to LA to his parents place and have a nice amount of space, beat winter weather, get help in first couple of months from his mom, and save on rent (put stuff in storage in NY for about a year).
1) having to find a new obgyn/hospital for delivery in LA (starting end of 2nd trimester)
2) not being in our ownspace to heal mentally/physically postbirth (weighing that against additional support too)
Thoughts on black tie highland dress. My mother’s side has its own tartan. Could I get away with a kilt and Prince Charlie jacket at a black tie event? I’m tempted, but it might be too much.
Nanny interview tips please . First time mom and toddler used to go to daycare. Been interviewing a couple of nannies and the conversation ended up as me talking about my kid most of the time.
My 6mo baby started daycare 3 weeks ago. We raised concerns about the frequency of feedings during the day (she was going for 5 hours without getting a bottle). The teachers assured us that would not happen again. Today I noticed she’s went for 5 hours without being fed. I cried so much and I just can’t sit here and eat knowing she’s not eating. I am hesitating calling again because I don’t want to be that parent and potentially create a hostile environment for my baby. I just don’t know wtd 😭😭😭
Best place to work as a Mom? I’m looking to change jobs now, and hoping to get pregnant in 2-3 years. So I don’t want to take a job that is bad for parenting.
I recently had my first baby and I’m trying to be as practical as possible, I did not get a bunch of baby stuff I just got the essentials, I think they sell you too much unnecessary things. I do appreciate people showing affection with gifts but feel kids now a day are over gifted. Would it be taken wrong if I suggest that for birthdays and Christmas instead of toys people deposit whatever they were going to spend in my baby’s 529 account?

Need to get out of IBM as direct admit Partner to MBB . 20+ yrs Industry Consulting, Tech Consulting, consistently delivered double digit growth. Recognized in the Industry. What is a better approach - Exec consultants or referrals?
I heard something new (well too me lol) the other day that has stuck in my head.
Confession: I want a “Brain Dump” partner.
It was explained to me that at the end of the day you have a sit down with your partner/roommate/friend and “brain dump”—talk about anything that happened during the day, at work or personally that bothered you or happened so that you can get it all out before you go to sleep. Then you can start fresh each day. 😊 just thought I would share!
Thoughts about going back and forth between agency and in-house? Is it a good/bad idea? Is it even possible?
I’ve been looking into continuing my education. I’m a certified veterinary assistant (worst mistake ever), and I’m thinking about starting my prevet courses, and becoming a CVT on the way so I have a guaranteed job. Anyone know if this is possible?
Every year it gets harder and harder to go back after spending a few weeks at home with parents.

My AD let me try on a Daytona for size but it was exhibition. I tried to buy the Batman off his wrist - sadly did not let me. Another day
Picked up a new watch today!
Really fallin in love with Seiko Alpinist, but they’re really overcharging with these new models. Does the watch fam here prefer the OG green dial? The white or champagne dial is also pretty striking
I know this bowl is for luxury watches but I wanted to see if anyone had suggestions for a watch around 300-400$? It will be my first real watch purchase. Currently looking at Timex M79.
What are this group’s thoughts on the Cartier Santos? Some of the YouTubers I look at say that it compares very favorably with other much more expensive watches such as the Overseas.
First luxury watch for my wife, 1910 early Rolex in rose gold on matching expanding bracelet. She will have to wait till Christmas, fingers crossed her hands are small enough...
Any advice on how to find and build rapport with reputable ADs as someone just getting into luxury watches?
By far the most wearable watch I’ve purchased 🌊
Happy Monday and Chinese New Year folks. Back to the Grand Seiko for me, what are you wearing to start the week?
Purchased new at a Delaware AD in late 2019, this OP 36 with the “Explorer dial” was discontinued in 2020.

Looking for my first watch. I want something with a metal strap and would last. Hows tag heuer aquracer automatic?
Grey dial on a grey day ☁️
Your expert option please. I’m new to watches and have a budget of ~$7000. So far I like what I’m seeing from Rolex, Omega, JLC and Breitling. How do these brands compare at this price range? Do you have any other recommendations? In terms of style, I like sharp and sleek rather than round bulky
Has anyone yet the new Cartier Tank Solar?
If so, any insights?
On the same topic: strange how they were not able to ship the 2021 and never issued a real statement and right now they seem to have it only in their own boutique and online. My AD seems not to have any...
New pen incoming!
New to Fishbowl?

Back is a little tame for my taste, but love the winding feel.
All of their movements have similar finishing. They could definitely do more there but doesn’t bother me much given how little time you get to spend looking at it
Love it! Highly considering this as my next GS. Where did you get it under list?
I think you made the right choice. The light blue speaks to me more than the other two
I’ve tried on the popular sbgw231 but not this one. Looks great.
The 231 was a little too beige for me. 🥱
