I took a positive pregnancy test this morning (yay!) after a four-day vacation that involved way more than my fair share of drinking. I’d taken a pregnancy test the day I left for vacation and it was negative. While I am so excited about the positive test, especially after miscarrying several months ago, I can’t help but feel totally guilty and worried I may have affected the baby. Please tell me I’m not the only one who has experienced this and whether my anxiety is warranted!
My husband and I are trying to have a second child and have been trying for over a year. I recently was referred to a fertility doctor and after many tests found out I don’t have much time (I’m 36). The doctors say all I can really do is live a healthy lifestyle (which I do anyways). Any tips or advice from moms that battled infertility? I’m trying to stay positive but it can be so hard sometimes.
I’m at the end of my rope. My AMD went on maternity leave a month ago and at this point, it doesn’t seem like they’re going to get a temp replacement. I’m expected to work up and put together plans for 2022 almost all on my own while taking time to train new AMPs and MPs. My director expects me to delegate to them when they have little to no background. I know I should probably start looking elsewhere but I feel like with the Great Resignation, it’s going to be the same anywhere else.
If you’re in a serious relationship, is the expectation that you invite your significant other to all family functions? Ie a Mother’s Day lunch?

Deloitte moms, I need your guidance. For some reason, someone (not sure which team) has marked my maternity leave (LOA) starting next week on DTE and I can’t update it to show PTO. I have repeatedly told the Leaves team and MetLife that I’m not starting LOA until the baby comes (due date 10/31, no baby yet). Whom do I contact to fix the DTE issue? If this happened to you, what did you do?

My partner feels at unease around my parents. She thinks that my mother doesn’t like her (she adores her) and feels like she doesn’t fit in. I don’t see what she is seeing but I also want to support her. How can I ease her anxiety around my family and make her feel more welcomed ?

Going on vacation to Europe. Looking for comfortable shoes that won’t hurt from walking all day, don’t look ugly (with nice dresses/clothes), and can perhaps even be considered for wearing to nice places (eg dinner, bars). Probably asking for a lot here but please let me know suggestions! Don’t want to take 4 pairs of shoes for a one week trip 🙂

I am currently working as a program financial analyst in a government contracting company and wanting to pivot my career more towards human capital and org development. I am a semester into my I-O master program and looking for a way to pivot for more professional experience. My desired sector would be in the tech, medical, or even doing consulting. Previous mentors suggested to start as a recruiter (there would be a paycut). For someone starting off in this field, what would you recommend?
