Hi everyone! For those that feel comfortable, would love to see the breakdown AFC > eggs retrieved > fertilized > embryo > genetically normal (please feel free to include other steps, add in more numbers/details). I've read the averages of how it gets narrowed down, but always prefer hearing real breakdowns. I'm in the process of my first egg retrieval and trying to stay realistic. Really appreciate it!
I want in to this crazy socks trend.. I know super late.. but guess it's about time for this late adopter to adopt in. How do I begin?

Hi fam! Me and my partner (females) just got an oral consent from my partners best friend (gay male) to be a sperm donor. Anyone has experience with this? I know lesbians usually go to sperm bank but we wanted to know “baby daddy” and have him involved as a godparent and when kids ask questions introduce him as a father. Personal life stories and dos and donts welcome. All my friends are straight or gay men so I have this resource and general internet.
My mother is having elective surgery today and expects me to take her to the hospital, be there, pick her up etc. We are in CA, the virus is very much here! Thanks for letting me vent!
I have this problem that I picked up from my father growing up: can’t effectively communicate negative feelings to people that I’m close with. I sort of expect them to know, and when they don’t get it or don’t show efforts that I’m expecting to receive, I start to distance myself from them and shut down. I started to reflect back on why I do this, and sense that this is some kind of a sick way of showing I have more power over the other person. How can I fix this?
What is Huron’s maternity leave policy?
Miscarriage earlier this year and haven’t been able to get pregnant since. How do so many people deal with the stress of TTC and sadness from loss while doing the type of demanding work we do? I’m really struggling 😔
Any reccos on meals that are as fast and easy as pasta with sauce, but are not pasta and sauce? I cook - and pretty well and healthfully - when I have time and bandwidth, but so often by the end of the day I’m just fried, and those 20mins and 2 steps just win out. Added context: I’m a single mom. What I eat, my kid needs to eat.
Thoughts on quitting during parental leave?
Hi! Anyone works in Accenture/Globant/Infosys/Wipro/Everis/IBM/Deloitte or other IT services companies and can tell me how long are the maternity and paternity leaves? And any other benefits regarding these leaves. Thanks!
Have a friend telling me to get in on the baby dinos NFT drop at 2pm. I’ve never invested in an NFT but I do know what NFTs are. What should I be considering before I make my decision?
Does this transition back to work get any easier? I miss my kid so much when he is at daycare. I feel constant guilt. But I love my job and want to progress. I feel this is such a minefield of emotions and I'm lost. I'm only 2 weeks in :( is there some working mom motivational book or study I can read to lift my spirits?
28 weeks pregnant and have to decide whether I am willing to fly to India to conduct workshop with my offshore team. My obgyn didn’t say anything. However my colleagues said...
Drove through downtown Santa Barbara last night. Restaurants were doing indoor dining and there were lots of crowds with no masks. What are you all seeing this holiday weekend?

What's a good chair for my bedroom for WFH? I have a nice basic desk from Amazon but their chairs don't seem to be revered.
What is it about law that glorifies morning people so much? I am NOT one and wfh has been so great for me in terms of being able to set my own schedule, but now that we’re starting to go back to the office I’ve noticed some pointed comments about people not being in by 8am. I bill as much (generally more) than other associates, so why does it matter if I start at 9 and work late?? I’m finding it hard to go back to the arbitrary-feeling 8am office start when I know I’m not going to be productive.

Successfully wrapping up a tough client engagement and the partner wants to know how you hung in there
On getting into FAANG. For those who made the switch, what are the typical roles from, say, MBB? How did you go about it? What's needed on the resume if I'm planning 12 months out? Lvl and pay?
Are consultants only seemingly more capable (at times) because we dedicate all our client-facing time on a single project vs. juggling multiple projects? All my client's leadership teams seem like a mess but I think it's just due to their lack of opportunity to focus on anything for long enough to know what's going on. Am I thinking about this completely wrong?
How much does a Consultant at Accenture make in the health & public service sector? ~ 3 years experience.
So T1 is MBB and T2 is Big4?
DTE is telling me that I am not authorized to expense $3k worth of expenses. I'll sort it out through traditional means, but 🙄
