Anyone else find it impossible to control what you eat pregnant? I was a littler overweight to begin with and I’m up 40 pounds already (two weeks left) just stress eating ice cream all damn day 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄
8 o'clock meeting in the client site, caught an early flight and planned to get some sleep on the flight. The fucking baby next to me started crying his lungs out. FML.
As a male mid-level/senior associate, can you take the full parental leave (10-14 weeks) and come out without impact on partnership prospects? What are questions I should be asking to get at this issue before accepting a lateral offer? Quiz recent junior partners with kids? Seems a bit aggressive but may be necessary.
Any stock tips anyone? Lol, I kid I kid
If you're a woman and child-free, do you have regrets? Cards on the table: I do! I'm 38, with a family history of natural pregnancies up to 50. I.e.: no bio reason why I couldn't still opt to get pregnant. But, also: my family tree is, basically, cancer, heart attack under 30, psychiatric basket case and congentital heart defect galore. I'm a minor statistical miracle here. And, knowing my math, I won't have kids. Still, it hurts. Happy for friends having babies. But I wish I could, too!
How much notice did you give your employer when taking parental leave? I’m interested in hearing from both men and women. What is considered the standard notice as well as minimum that is professionally acceptable. Also interested in scenarios where the full leave was not taken immediately after childbirth.
Recently restarted strength training. I had my baby about a year ago and my tummy (37.5 inches at the belly button) is just huge. Checked with my gyno and she rules out Diastasis Recti and said all of it was just fat 🥲Any ladies who had luck with strength training and reducing tummy fat? I’m not looking at immediate results or even spot reduction- just curious how it looks like after a year or two. Female , 32 year old.
Has anyone subscribed to Yumi or other baby food services? Would love to hear whether you recommend! Thanks.
Advice for attacking the data room and putting together my first sell-side disclosure schedules? (Baby M&A att’y 2 months in). I have an associate mentor who encourages me to flag items I don’t understand and will walk through them with me, but at this point, the only thing I understand is that I don’t even know what I don’t know and what I do know that I don’t know is basically everything.
About to have a baby in next April! Just wonder how much it costs to give birth to a baby with insurance coverage? And when is a good time to let the team know you are pregnant?
Helping raise awareness: If a colleague is going out on maternity leave, it’s lovely to acknowledge. Pro tip- saying “I everything goes well” is more appropriate than wishing them “A good break.”
Help! My child came home with lice! I did the shampoo thing but not sure if I am able to use it too bc im pregnant. Anyone know? I don’t think I have it but idk and want to be safe.
A Contraception Conundrum: Interested to hear how much risk people are willing to accept in this space. I'm on oral BC and take it on time, without fail but am having a REALLY hard time feeling okay with my bf's request to not use a condom (due to pregnancy risk; we both have been tested). Am I crazy? Background: Religious upbringing that believed extramarital pregnancy was appalling and shameful. I don't believe this but do not want to be pregnant and make tough decisions/ life changes.
Moms what do you do with breast milk which has been warmed up 2x and baby still didn’t finish it in the bottle. I try small bottles, but sometimes he likes to leave 1/2 oz .. I know what AAP says, but trying to understand what to do with milk once baby starts daycare

Work Halloween event & CEO says costumes are mandatory. If I say fuck it & don’t dress up because I’m no longer a child, nothing is really going to happen, right?
I had my 9 week scan today and everything went well - we saw the baby and heard the heartbeat. The doctor asked me to come in next week for the myriad prenatal blood test - is this common or is this because of my high bmi and PCOS? I checked with my insurance and looks like they won't cover it. Happy to hear from anyone else who has had this test done!
Curious as to who is in this bowl. I just realized that I assumed it would be mostly women as the child rearing gets thrown in our face more, but realized that assumption is likely very wrong. - 34F, single
Any Lee Child fans here?

New to options trading, been following this bowl a while and trying to get educated with courses on options alpha and TD Ameritrade. How many of yall are able to make consistent extra income from options trading? I’m not expecting BC wins but was hoping after some practice for a little side income to make the no raise year a little less painful. Just wondering if it’s more of a gamble then anything except for the exceptional few...

Hearing about the ridiculous demands from the LA teachers union... Is anyone else frustrated with how political teaching has become? I'm not sure that I would teach at all if it was required to join the union. So sick of the pressure to back certain candidates, walk-outs, and viewpoints. My district has a negotiating body affiliated with the NEA, but it's voluntary to be a member. I'm glad to live in a state with options.
26M making $155k base and about $185k TC at a large payments firm (Visa, MC, AmEx). I’m also 1 year away from promo which will probably get me to $210-220k TC. Do you think I still need an MBA? A lot of senior leaders in my team have 1 so I’m really not sure at this point. The opportunity costs are high, but I’m well aware of the long term benefits. I’ve also already taken the GMAT and gotten a 740. I’m an Asian male and find the hurdles that we go through for admissions a turn off as well.

How do you teach a 4 yo when they start to lie? Today, my kid quickly put his lunch back into his box when his teachers turned around and lied to his teachers that he finished his food. They were even praising him on how quickly he finished his lunch today. And told us also that he finished all his food as well.
Transitioned into consulting post-MBA (1.5 years ago) and generally enjoyed the experience. Since I joined my comp has gone up ~13% and I’ve liked my project teams but in my most recent review talk my partner told me he thought I was ready to be promoted and had advocated for me but there was an HR rule against it and I was on-track to be promoted in 6 months. Since then I’ve learned that one of my classmates (started 2-3 months before me due to COVID) was promoted last cycle.
