6 weeks til due date and feeling in total dispair. No motivation for work, worn out, but dreading maternity leave (this is #2). Need some uplifting words. I know I’m blessed to have a second and good
Planning to have first kid and buy first home in late 2021 / early 2022. What are all things I need to plan for from financial point of view ?

What is your opinion on a 4-day work week? Do you think people are generally more productive? Will consulting ever adopt this?
Not exactly womens fashion but what can i get for a friend who's having a baby in a few weeks? It's a girl, but I think it would be nice to include a small gift for my friend too since she probably will get baby presents from others too.
Desperate to have another baby in a couple of years but also need to change jobs due to lack of promo over last 2 years. I'm really stuck on what to do as the 2 companies I've looked into with a good (ish) mat leave have both rejected me. Staying at my current company until after baby isn't really an option as I hate it so much and it's getting me down. The company is actually OK but I'm not happy with my level and I have no support. Any advice for me?
Coming back from maternity leave in a few weeks, and it looks like I need a whole new wardrobe...Is it even realistic to hope I can fit my old clothes eventually?
At what point is it justified to cut a parent off? I grew up in a toxic and emotionally and physically abusive immigrant household. I’d say my parents made a decent amount of money to support us, but my dad is an addicted gambler who constantly put the family in debt. Everything we did was a reaction to his behavior. Ex. Sell a car on the short term to get a few thousand dollars to cover debt people coming for him and then taking out another loan for a new car of his choice in a few weeks. Cont
My best friend & I got pregnant around the same time. We didn’t know the other was even trying - just a happy surprise. But now I am going through a miscarriage and I don’t know how to feel. Lots of jealousy, but I’m still so happy for them. I knew it was a possibility (1/4 pregnancies end in miscarriage) but why did it have to be me? I don’t want to go to her gender reveal next week, it’s still just so painful but I feel like a horrible person for harboring these negative feelings towards her.
My half sister (now in her 30s) told me last night that our dad (my biological father) sexually assisted her when she was 13. I don’t know what to do my world is flipped upside down
So annoyed that my partner falls asleep instantly and not o only that he snores and keeps me awake. I end up having to sleep in the next room. He has no worries at all. He falls asleep like a baby.

Hi everyone, I started as a strategy analyst 4 months ago and things have been going really well. Just had a recruiter reach out on LinkedIn wanting to place me in a strategy and ops role at a tech company... I am not interested in leaving my firm, but am curious to see my options. How do you guys play it when you get these? Just agree and say you would love to hear more? Would that look bad if it got back to your employer? Not sure what is normal

Looking for insights into / feedback on datadog. Just got pinged by a recruiter and looks like they are a pretty solid firm. Any thoughts on prospects / company culture etc. this opportunity is with their marketing team. Thanks!!
So I just got an interview somewhere without my copywriter... When do I tell her? When I get my contract or?
Need some emotional support - didn’t get this job I was interviewing for 4 months. The recruiter said team still loves your experience but not exactly what they are looking for, why drag it out for 4 months and 10 rounds of interviews 😭
I’m what you’d call the “good kid” I always got to see the bad kids get away with stuff my whole life and I thought having a moral compass would pay off but a lot of times I feel jerks move ahead....
Need a pep talk. 9 weeks pregnant with a history of miscarriages, even this pregnancy started as twins (saw both heartbeats at 7wks) but one "vanished". Now extra paranoid for the remaining healthy one and constantly overanalyzing every stomach feeling or any break in nausea. I may go insane 😓
