Second pregnancy. With my first, I used Medela Sonata. Curious to see how Spectra S1, Buddha Baby, and Medela Freestyle Flex (newest one) compare in terms of efficiency, pumping time, draining out, etc. TIA!
In my last trimester with the first baby and I’m extremely unmotivated at work… worrying about actual birth, worry about having a baby, worrying about loosing job with a baby and debt (just general anxiety at this point). My sleep has been reduced to 3-5 hours max a day since beginning of 2nd trimester (that’s with all the bathroom breaks every hour at night AND counting nap minutes throughout the day). I can’t think clearly and my mood is literally a rollercoaster ride. It’ll get better right?
Hi mommies - has anyone had a child born with a heart murmur, specifically ASD. My baby was born with an ASD, and I’m worried and have a lot of anxiety! The doctor asked us to watch for another 5 years to see if it’ll close on its own. But wanted to check here to see if anybody else has gone through it and hear real life stories!
I've an offer of Fractal Analytics, Bangalore; L&T Tech , Hyderabad; Happiest Minds, WFH; Exponential AI, Hyderabad. All the offers are of same CTC and base. My current location is Hyderabad and I've a working wife (permanent WFH) and a year old kid.
Please suggest which one should I join. Thanks.
Has anyone cut your parents out of your life (completely cut out: no phone call, no Family meeting, like strangers)? How long? regret or not? I moved out and didn't want to look back, but I don't feel better. I am still crying and angry so much...why did they give me a life with child trauma? Even now, I'm past 30 and taking meds but still in pain
Mummas- where and what to buy daycare winter wear for Chicago winters? My baby is 13 months old.
Thanks so much in advance.
[Maternity leave / pregnancy question] Have any fish timed new jobs with when they’re planning to have a baby? Or has anyone become pregnant quickly after joining a new company?
Context: I want to leave my firm but most new companies have a 1 year requirement in order to get maternity leave. If I get pregnant before/during finding a new job, worried I’ll be SOL. I don’t want to wait due to fears I won’t be able to conceive.
TW: weight, weight loss
curious how much weight people have lost in the first trimester due to nausea, etc? im toward the end of my first trimester and I haven’t experienced any vomiting but the lack of appetite and aversions have caused me to lose about 10 lbs since my last ultrasound :/ I’d normally be celebrating this as I don’t mind the numbers I’m seeing but I keep worrying about whether baby is getting enough nutrients 😭
Not yet a dad but hopefully some day soon. Curious about how you and your spouse got pregnant. Was it an intense, thoroughly tracked process (aka we HAVE to have time together TODAY) or a more (cont.)
Ladies who are pregnant or trying to become pregnant, this is something serious to consider if you have yet to get your COVID vaccine:
37 weeks and baby has not turned yet. Chances of c section are high, while OR of my hospital are crazy busy and I don’t really get to chose any date for scheduled c section... any thoughts/past experience to share?
So after dealing my boyfriend’s bigoted father try to “discuss” politics with us for five years, he’s finally realizing the toxicity and is distancing himself.
Although I am happy because I think it will be long-term better for both of our mental sanity. He definitely has days where he gets down and frustrated (he’s Latino so family is really core to his identity). Anyone go through anything similar with their partner and could share advice on how to be supportive?
At what age did you switch from using the baby bath to putting baby straight into the normal bathtub?
I am asked to apply for visa for poland, I have a spouse and kid as dependents. On VFS website, visa slots are different for national visa and dependents..so will i have to book visa slot separately for my dependents or can i take my dependents on my visa date.
How do you assure yourself that your baby (7 months) is crying at night for reasons that can be helped by sleepy training and not pain or illness? My daughter cries bloody murder, like she’s in horrible pain or something, several times a night. There’s no “always” solution: sometimes she settles with a bottle, sometimes with cuddles, sometimes a diaper change, etc. I’m just at loss, especially as she is perfectly fine and happy during the day.
Serious question- how on earth do first time parents pick out things for a registry? Like if you haven’t managed your own child, how do you know if you like this carrier or that? This lounger or that? Do people just trust their closest friend/advisor and mimic their decisions? I’ve spent so much time reading the diff bw strollers (which clearly is the hardest decision) - bloggers, Buying Guides, etc- and my head is going to explode 🤯. Gift cards it is 😆
I have a nanny 2 days a week, I pay her $20/hr for one kid. She isn’t expected to do any house work, can watch tv or do homework when baby sleeps- should I also be buying her lunch?
Thinking about getting animal crossing for my kids - what’s the minimum age y’all would recommend? I get that anyone can fish or catch bugs, but will a child get frustrated when they’re not getting blue roses because they don’t know punnet squares?
Single dads - how do you juggle consulting hours + travel with looking after a toddler? Is that even possible?
Biglaw transactional associate - only at 81% utilization on the year. Feeling like a failure. Just need some extra motivation.
Any recommendations for a sturdy, moderately sized and inexpensive crossbody bag? It’ll be mainly for running errands.
I am currently giving my interviewed at Valiance solution .
Is there anybody working or ex employee.
I want to know about the company .any reviews or experience??
Any insight on Kelley Kronenberg? Firm culture, turn around rate, pay, expectations, etc.
Any info would be helpful 🙏🏼 much appreciated !
Question for the Value Creation Ey folks, is your work mostly local or travel, what would you say is a rough estimate percentage wise?
I need help. I am a 34 yo female. I maintain about an 80/20 lifestyle balance of eating well and exercising / being lazy and eating/drinking like crap. I am always tired. My motivation for everything lately is shit. I have trouble concentrating. I’m overweight (by at least 10 lbs, but I’d feel a lot better 20+ lbs less) and my body confidence is practically non existent. I feel like I’m falling apart…literally. I’ve been seeing a chiropractor since February . (Continued in comments)
Seriously thinking of moving to Austin, what are some good suburbs around to buy a house? Also, are ad agencies growing here? Do marketing jobs pay good like nyc?
What's a reasonable expectation for salary increase (percentage) accompanying a promotion to SM? Heard an awful rumor that firm policy prohibits increase more than 7% because comp is meant to be primarily bonus-based at SM level.
Hi all! In light of some recent threads, we're creating some community guidelines to help encourage productive, intersectional conversations. As an inclusive space for all who identify as women, this bowl thrives on supportive, compassionate discussions. We may not always understand or agree, but it’s still important to listen and learn, and not demand from fellow members to validate their experiences if we cannot relate. Feel free to DM the bowl leaders with any questions. Thanks! ❤️
Hello all! I am new to Fishbowl, I’m loving the community thus far. Would love some likes so I can DM

Here tax calculator for UK
There tax is straight forward without any deductions
137K GBP is huge in UK so pretty sure you're not serious. Even MDs at few firms don't make that kind of base.
This dude is mentioning dollars… and I’m still finding it hard to believe that his query is genuine.
In London they're paying on dollars? Onsite offer?
He hasn’t… timepass post
He would have written in hundreds the amount not as per Indian formula and also he wrote 💵. Ignore
an eye for detail .....haha
Batao Bhai...dnt laugh ... it's a genuine query. Recruiter mentioned $
