I am 6 weeks pregnant in a stressful job and it is making everything harder. Normally I handle it all well, but now I feel like a total space case, get stressed out more easily, and get so sick to my stomach and tired. This is after nearly a year of fertility treatments which as you know, are also incredibly stressful. How have you coped?
Hi, I need to send power of attorney on my mother name for selling house in India. I am in US, where can I get it notorized? Any pointers will be helpful.
As we transition to a new schedule with our kid in preK, we are trying to figure out a better way to plan our dinner and evening routine. Every evening just feels like an exhausting mad dash to make dinner, try to get kid to eat, eat ourselves, bathe kid on bath nights and get him to bed. We try and keep dinners simple and quick but it still feels like a race. I guess it is this way for many (or most) families. Any suggestions on how to reclaim your sanity?
Im a RN and took on a new role working in Home Health. I chose this position because My husband & I recently moved to PA with our 2 kids (1&3), with no family available for his residency program with a hospital. If you know that life, I’m pretty much the main parent for our kids. I don’t want to work in the hospital/floor work anymore; nor do I believe the hrs are flexible enough. I need a job that’s flexible for the kids but pays >$44/hr. Maybe remote or hybrid? Please help w/ suggestions.
Any advice from moms who did Babywise? We did it for our first and it went PERFECTLY. Now 2nd kid is 3 weeks old and im having a much harder time and don’t know how to solve our issues. She’s trying to eat every 2 hours some days, she was doing 4.5 hour night stretches but stopped & now wakes every 2.5-3 hrs at night. She’s waking at 5:30-6:00 am when we want a 7 am wake time. Maybe she needs a later first wake time in the AM?. . I can’t seem to get her on a real schedule.
Vaccines: 1) for the 2months appointment is it best for the baby to receive all vaccines at the same day or is it best to spread them out over the subsequent weeks, eg one vaccine per week? Rationale: so that the little body can better cope with the vaccines? 2) any tips so the baby can better deal with the vaccines? Eg while they receive the shots is there anything that can be done so they don’t scream so much? Or after so they don’t have much side effects from the vaccines?
What’s something you were literally unable to do while pregnant? I apparently forgot how to drive. Literally every time I get in my car it’s some kind of issue. Typing this as I wait for my boyfriend to come get me off a curb 😩
We recently find out we’re pregnant and I’m worried about how we are going to balance parenting and work.
We are both in consulting and first time parents to be with no family to rely on. Any advise? Is it doable? How do you manage work in consulting while parenting?
Anyone else have a gaslighting parent? I saw a therapist about my mom for years and it helped, but now in biglaw, it can be really hard to deal with. sometimes my mom delivers a punch to the gut via text in between months of being my friend. I guess I’m just so wound up, my mom’s friendship (which is how I characterize it) is a comfort for me. So when she hits me with something randomly spiteful and hurtful, it’s like shock, devastation, loneliness, and anger all at once.
I am working as an Contractor at Zs Associates from my parent company HCL technologies. As per offer letter my probation period is 12 months and notice period is 3 months.I want to switch to another organization but they need someone who can join early.

Does anyone work in a work culture where your boss views herself as a mother, her employees as children and then refers to your colleagues as “sisters” and “brothers” and hints that everyone can call her “Mama Bear”. Please share thoughts on this.
Happy holidays! I’m looking for recommendations for strollers that work very well with the Nuna Pipa car seat. The one we have is “compatible” but it is very difficult to both attach and remove. I’m looking for one that can be both forward and parent facing when not used with the car seat. Any recommendations? Thanks!!!
So much discussion here on wearing a watch to work, worrying about client perception, etc. Has anyone bought a Rolex with plans to give it to your child and only wear it around them and never to work?
Thoughts on wolf vs diplomat watch winders? I see discussions in this bowl about wolf brand. I'm thinking of buying one for my husband for father's day from our babies, and I can have the diplomat one engraved with his initials. Is wolf really better for the watch though? I've gotten him two nice watches over the years (Breitling and Mont Blanc). He used to wear one daily, but his company won't move back to the office until 2022 so don't want the mechanisms to get messed up.
Hi! So confused!! Me and my husband both in Tax public accounting , we have 2 kids under 5 , I am already starting to get anxious about spring busy season, we don't have any family help around.

Hi! quick question, is it illegal to pay someone to find me a job?
I am willing to pay anyone $5000 to find me a remote job within in US
Why am I doing this?
My requirements are a bit different from the usual case. I am not eligible to work in the US and I know sponsoring is hard (90% of my applications were rejected on that basis) but I can work as a contractor (W2 Tax Form for employers) because I have an LLC set up.
I can PROVE my work experience that I will do good at the job too.
Monday nightttt — kicking the week off right! 🤌🏼😋
My wife is pregnant. working at Ey. Will her promotion be affected by the pregnancy?
Lately, a lot of recruiters have been reaching out. I'm mostly happy in my role and w/my company (no longer w/Edelman), but one job caught my eye with a huge salary and title bump at a comparable company, culture and work wise. Interviews are going well - I'm torn about leaving - things are good now but some extra $$ for what seems like a similar experience seems like a no-brainer. Yet, I feel sad about potentially leaving my current company. Anyone have a similar experience? What happened?
2015 graduate leaving big law for a regional firm. I have strong personal relationships at the smaller firm. Everyone thinks I’m crazy to “go downstream” and take a pay cut in this market. But I’m excited anyway. I’ll miss the money (and all those sweet quarterly bonuses we’ve been getting lately), but I’m not going to miss anymore quality time with my family because some type A hardo thinks 7pm is a good time for a conference call. Peace out all you crazy kids. Godspeed. And get some sleep.
Are there any firms with remote or hybrid LAA positions? Even if it’s short term, that’s ok.

I lead a team of women (ranging from 2-8 years into their careers) and want to advocate for their career growth with management. I’ve made the case for promotions and raises (have been pushing for this for months and keep being told “soon”—but I won’t give up), but I also want to try smaller asks and would love suggestions. Are there any books, one-off classes/trainings, virtual events, memberships, etc. that you’d recommend? Thank you!

Fitbit sleep score? I struggle to get more than 6 1/2 hrs of sleep and rarely break into the 80s. Usually I’m 6 - 6 1/2 and score in the low-mid 70s. M50 fwiw.
