Anyone have experience taking paternity/maternity leave in a promotion year? Of course, I’m still planning on taking it either way, but I am admittedly concerned the impact it may have. Thanks!
I’m “high risk” (36 years old), have a bilobed placenta (placenta separated into two near equal- sized lobes) but baby is healthy and docs have expressed no concerns. Yet they want to schedule an induction at 40 weeks- I’m 39 weeks now. I have a doc appointment tomorrow but just wondering if this would be considered a medical reason for an induction. I’ve had no signs of labor so thinking, should I just schedule it?... 🤔
Hey Moms! Looking to start a family. Two factors (1) I'm turning 30 next year and (2) I'll be a 2nd year SC up for M in S&O. Any tips on timing? Do you know of anyone who has been pregnant their promotion year?
Anyone under 30 had a diagnostic mammo and it was negative? Doc found suspicious lump yesterday and mammo tomorrow. Lump is hard, asymmetrical and one side only. It was not there a month ago. 27 with family history of BRCAII (parent died of cancer + had mutation). Fam keeps telling me it’s nothing but hard not to be anxious.
I’m a junior associate at a NY big law, thinking of having my first baby when I am a 3rd year. I understand that it is inevitable (unfortunately) that I’ll suffer to some extent professionally.

Baby outgrowing his Nuna pupa seat at less than a year - think I need to move to forward facing. Any recommendations?
Deloitte moms especially- I’m 5 months back from maternity leave and looking at other jobs. Would I have to pay back my leave if I leave at any certain time? Not sure where to look and nervous about cyber police seeing my search. 😅

Has anyone tried the paid version of Qeepsake? How about Tinybeans or Baby Story- any recommendation?
I teach at a small school that has been f2f hybrid all year. It's so exhausting because I never know what to expect bc the students come in some days and stay home other days without notice. For example, I have one kid who goes between mom and dad's house. Mom keeps him at home, dad doesn't believe in covid.
Ladies, if you were to get pregnant at a time when you weren’t ready to have a baby, would you tell the father?

Just rolled an old 401k to my Vanguard IRA, which only has VTTSX. Should I use the rollover to buy VOO or VTI? As VTTSX is just over half Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund Investor Shares, CONT
Any tips on better presenting ideas/campaigns both internally and towards the client? I tend to be quick and to the point, which has it's warranted moments, but I'm not the strongest at fully walking through the story and having 'finesse'

An employee at a London agency gets Coronavirus. Instead of implementing WFH indefinitely, they close for a few days to clean. This - both the thinking and the action - is how pandemics spread. https://www.adweek.com/agencyspy/publicis-groupe-uk-closes-turnmill-office-in-london-after-employee-tests-positive-for-covid-19/162789/
