I’m 4 mo. in at a growing, privately held company. I’m a founding partner in New Eng. territory w/ ownership stake. My authority is constantly undercut. I’m finding that the “big picture” meetings are happening without me. I push to be added in but I’m told mtgs didn’t take place. B/c I’m being cut out of the larger conversation I miss the fast-paced pivot on goals. I’m frustrated. Part of it’s disorganization w/in the company. Part of it’s a blatant boys club. Part is new kid. Advice?
Debating betwn staying on with current team after negotiating a 30% increase or accepting PT role, with this negotiated increase the hourly pay is $1 different.

Senior associate at Am 200 firm here, billing close to 190-200 a month from time to time/18-1900 a year, on partnership track, and making 230k a year. One 6 yo kid. Husband a partner at Am 200 firm and makes half to a million a year. Question: What would you do if you were me? Understood that it is funny for me to seek life advice like this, but I genuinely struggle with this and want to hear thoughts.
Oof. Crying like crazy. My in laws called me and were insanely emotionally abusive about my grief. It’s Father’s Day and we had a wedding to go to. I didn’t expect to be this affected but something triggered my grief. So I didn’t go. They called me and said such toxic things and implied I need “help”. Yes it’s been 2 years but I also do a lot for my family and husband and others. It’s very rare that my grief gets triggered. I’m allowed to have 1 bad day out of 365.
Pre-child I was very ambitious and hard working. As soon as my son was born I exited to a 100% WFH industry role. Bond with my son is 10/10, however, I am so unengaged and checked out professionally. 1) has this happened to others, how to fix 2) considering return to consulting, but fear missing out on time with family & impact to our bond. How do others manage?

Hi moms, what did you do about exercise when you were pregnant? Can you recommend any great apps or online exercise programs that were specifically for pregnant women? I’d like something that can help me build strength where I’ll need it (pelvic floor, transverse abs) but also help me feel more in touch with my baby and the changes my body is going through. Suggestions?
Met this wonderful woman at my brother’s baby shower. She loves football and we have a first date scheduled for October 2 (Sunday). Should I do a proper dinner date, a bowling ally, or should I propose meeting at a sports bar to watch the games together. Need some advice from the ladies.
In June I started a new role, but recently out of the blue I was let go as "not a good fit". There were no warning signs, I wasn't on any type of goal program and had just gotten my first deal. I was also working on a few others. At the time my mother was very ill and in the hospital, thankfully she's better. The employer knew this and to let me go in this manner as well as it's the holiday season, it's really starting to bother me. I wonder if there's any recourse?
Any remedies for bloated stomach? I am over 40 and has never had it this bad. As soon as I eat stomach is bloated like I am 5 months pregnant. Help!!!!!

I work in a small home care agency around 45 patients, 90 employees, including me and 4 other office staff members.
My position was office coordinator until my boys striped me of that title. But I assist with scheduling, I/T, tech support, supervising, payroll, billing, and more.
What am I actually doing? I feel over worked, over utilized, underpaid (but that's not the biggest issue) and over stimulated.
I just had a baby 4 months ago and have been at work since I came home from the hospital.

I’ve recently discovered the new Baume Riviera and can’t get it out of my head. I thought my next watch was either going to be a SMP or a Rolex Explorer, but I really like this watch. It just hits the right notes for me.
Anyone have thoughts on it/ experience with Baume? I know it’s a brand with a decent history that’s gone lower end, but the Baumatic seems to be a great movement.

How do you ladies manage finances and bank accounts with your SO? I’m getting married and realized we never really talked about it. Currently, we have one joint savings account that we’ve put money in for wedding expenses. We have our own checking accounts also. I suggested we keep our checking accounts, open a joint account for groceries/food/kids that we put a % of pay into (like 50)and keep our joint savings. My SO doesn’t like the idea of having 3 bank accounts 🙄 so I’m not sure what to do.
When did you know early on you were pregnant? This is the second time this week I’ve thrown up for no obvious reason. Monday I fell asleep on the couch around 8pm after sleeping about 9 hours the night before. I’m about a week out from being able to take a test with any semblance of accurate results.
I moved with my husband and 2-year-old from Brooklyn to the NJ suburbs in November and am feeling so overwhelmingly lonely. My work isn’t very social, I don’t have any friends nearby, and throwing Covid into the mix, I feel incredibly alone. Anyone else go through this? Does it get better?
Today is my birthday and I’m having the worst day. I’m pretty sure my husband forgot until he saw a Facebook post and even then, he put zero effort into anything. I’m already sad and depressed that I can’t see my family and he knew that. I’ve really been struggling with my marriage and this just shows me even more that he doesn’t care about me. We have kids that I’m trying to stay strong for but I’m starting to crack. I just want this day to be over.
How do you other working moms find time for yourself? I’m so over scheduled that I never have a moment to do anything for me.
My son has started hitting and also saying "you stupid". The teacher said another kid at school is also doing it. At home he's hitting me and my husband even when he's happy. When i have explained his hitting makes me sad he says it makes him happy. We have tried time outs, taking things away, talking about it. How do I get through this behavior? Almost 3 yo

Need advise on what to say during virtual baby shower.
My friend is hosting a virtual baby shower for me and one of activities wants me to do is to show people my room and the stuff I have for the baby. I think that's a good time for me to say "Thank you for your baby gifts" since I'm showing the gifts.
BUT there are people in the virtual shower that did not get a us a gift. Will saying that like make them feel guilty? Is there a way to phase so I don't look like I'm being passive aggressive?
