I’m pregnant!? And I’m getting a job offer tomorrow. I need to know a million things like their insurance packages (I really want to keep my Kaiser insurance) and whether they offer paid leave before the one year FMLA mark. What else do I need to know? How do I ask all this stuff? How concerned should I be about disclosing my pregnancy considering I just tested positive, and I barely know these people?
Any mom's here who remember their first trimester? Anything you stopped doing, eating or drinking? Obviously the basics like alcohol, smoking, caffeine, raw seafood, flaxseed, rosemary, etc. Family is very cautious is driving me insane. Between covid restrictions and baby restrictions, I feel like I'm in jail. Suburban cycling ban and all-bran are the latest drama.
Any restrictions taking parental leave in the first year of employment at BCG/Bain? Couldn't find anything published online about it and not ready to disclose (too early in pregnancy)
Any daycare tips and tricks? My baby will be 5 months when starting daycare / me going back to work
Universal Orlando trip? I am seeing an uptick in covid cases and articles sayin the area is "crisis mode". We have a group all vaxxed except for 1 -small child and 1 half vaxxed (next shot isnt until we get back). Would you go or is this fear mongering again?
Our baby is due soon so we’ve made the decision that we will only have visits from vaccinated family members (not realizing it would be an issue) only to find out that my Dad will never be getting vaccinated, planned to lie about it AND asked other family members lie to us about his vaccination status too… when we found out and asked him about it, he started to FREAK out. Now I’m questioning if we’re being unreasonable… how have you guys been handling unvaccinated people meeting your newborns??
How old were you when you had your first child? I know it sounds ridiculous but I’m 25F, completely single and I’m beginning to worry that if I don’t find a partner in the next couple of years, I might be left on the shelf.
How would one calculate child support when there is an adoption stipend being received? I have an attorney arguing it should be included as income for calculating support and I have another attorney on the other side saying it should be excluded entirely as it’s a benefit for the children. The stipend is a monthly payment received as a result of an adoption that occurred when the parties were still together. I can’t find relevant case law or statutes on point. This is a KY issue.
Did you cave and give your kid a device way before they should have one/before their peers because you're a "techie" family?
What is the parental leave policy at your firm? Please include: (1) size of firm; (2) location of firm; (3) how many paid weeks off (from firm - not state/fed); (4) other perks, such as ramp up/down time, etc.
Had my first miscarriage late last year. 8 weeks pregnant now and saw baby on sono the other day however, at times I don’t “feel” pregnant. Like my boobs don’t feel sore and don’t have intense food cravings. Maybe it’s all in my head but how do I stop from worrying about a 2nd miscarriage? ☹️ My next appt is in 4 wks and I wish time sped up so I could feel more in the clear.
Moms help me. I'm resentful that I got pregnant and now stuck dealing with the exhaustion of a newborn and recovery. My soul mate Hubby wanted kids, not me, but since it was "something he couldn't live without" I agreed since I was on the fence. He's super helpful and we have family to help out, which is more than most moms. But the exhaustion and PP depression is making me resent my decision and him. Baby is perfect, a regular healthy full term joy. I'm so blessed. But so miserable. Help.
All, you were right. My father in law’s rolex is a fake. I still got it fixed for him. It is a bad fake indeed. There is discoloring, made of steel, the insides don’t have rolex engraved etc etc. However the sentimental value prevailed and all the insights you gave me is a huge lesson for me in checking fakes vs originals. So thank you all!
