Women: been so stressed you start having irregular periods? I’m not on birth control or any kind of hormonal drugs, nor am I pregnant. I’m freaking out about what I can’t see. Any stories to share?
When does morning sickness begin? With my first I started getting really nauseous around 6 weeks? I’m now approaching 8 and not really feeling much. Kind of nervous I’m losing the baby :(
Two questions: 1) I’m pregnant with my first baby (16 weeks), any advice on when to disclose? 2) Does that timing advice change given our current COVID circumstances? I’ve been WFH since March, and while the Firm hasn’t indicated it’s going to require us back in, a handful of partners I work have started to mention it. I’d like to nip that talk in the bud and feel like a reasonable way to do that is to disclose. Thanks in advance for any thoughts?
I have PCOS, so getting pregnant has not been straightforward. We are about 6 months into trying and I am on some drugs to help. My husband basically blames me for not being pregnant yet and routinely says I am a ‘mess’ for not understanding my cycle, even though I am going by what the doctors tell me. I haven’t been stressed by having PCOS, but his constant remarks are really getting to me
Friends and Family: 'You should have a baby! They're a joy.' Me: 'Okay. Now I am pregnant.' Friends and Family: 'Haha your life is gonna be so f*cked.'
When did you start telling folks at work that you are pregnant? I am 8 weeks pregnant now. i am at a consultant level and concerned whether this will affect staffing since i don't have a deep network.
Hey PwC time to step up your parental leave...
A coworker this week told me I look 13. I know I have a baby face but that’s so rude! I should have told her she looked 50 (she’s not 50)
Starting from blood work to getting pregnant, if everything goes smooth what is a timeline we are looking at?
Married People/Life Partners - what conversations did you have with your spouses before deciding to become pregnant? No offense, but this question is for people that have actually planned and have leveraged 21st century contraception to do so along with strategic financial planning. I’d really like to understand the steps you and your spouses took before deciding to have a baby.
I’m 4 and half months pregnant. A recruiter reached out. Should I disclose that during our initial conversation? If not, when would be the appropriate time to share that?
I felt sorry for the baby boomer at this networking event. Must be hard to be a new hire in such a millennial-heavy environment.
PwC moms, looking up the paid parental leave policy. It seems like even though I will be eligible for 26 weeks of leave, only 8 of these will be paid. Is that right, looking for guidance here.
SF Producers - favorite audio recording studios in SF or South Bay? Need one that can help kid glove a client that needs to be recorded - in other words - not dealing with a seasoned voice actor.
Do you have many LGBT friends and do you necessarily care if you do or don’t? I have one gay friend who I catch up with occasionally and I think my husband has two. I never really cared either way about it, however I feel like I’m at that point where you primarily make new friends through existing ones, and they are having children and making other “parent” friends. Between that and living in a SFH neighborhood in the suburbs, I’ve changed my viewpoint over the last few months.
having a really hard time getting my 3 yo boy (very smart, energetic, somewhat spoiled) to be better to his 11 month old brother (very mellow, sweet and smiley). my toddler will scream in the baby's face, slap him, and today grabbed him so hard by the neck that the baby fell forward onto his face. Ashamed that I was so upset I slapped my toddler after (once, not hard). I try giving the toddler plenty of attention. Baby is now scared of his older brother. Has anyone gone through this?
So I just got the most fantastic news and I'm not allowed to tell anyone yet. But I'm about to BURST, soooooo... I turn to my anonymous social media outlet. Lol. My brother and his wife called me today to tell me they're going to have their first baby!!! I can't begin to express what a HUGE deal this is for them and for my family, and the long, difficult road they have been down to get here. I cannot wait to be an aunt!!! 🥰🥰🥰
At what age do you stop taking a bath with your child? My 3 year old & I were in the bath together and suddenly he reached out to my chest and said “mumma, your lungs are outside, mine are inside my body” I was so embarrassed! I told him that those were my breasts and that grown ups have slightly different body parts. I normally take a quick shower before him and sit in the tub with him, as that’s our bonding time. I was wearing underpants so thankfully he didn’t notice my non-existant penis
How long do you have to be at your company to qualify for their maternity / paternity leave policy?
Received and eval that I disagree with some points pretty strongly. Mad at myself that I’m afraid to say much I’m positive it will end up hurting more than solving.
My husband has about 6 years of healthcare management experience, specifically in implementing technologies (especially in patient access, clinical operations, and revenue cycle).

International Tax SA here. A partner at Deloitte IT group reached out to me on Linkedin for an opening. I replied and he wants to talk on the phone about the opportunity. Does this happen a lot? Don’t think I’ve ever heard a partner recruiting directly on Linkedin. Anyone has any thoughts?
Need some help: doing taxes and seems I exceeded the comp limit to create a Roth IRA and process a $6k 2020 contribution due to wife’s government unemployment pandemic boosts/extensions. Made trades starting in January ‘21 and portfolio has increased now 10%. Anyone aware of a work around to not get dinged / taxed? If not, I guess I would have to pay premature taxes on the gains (I think just the gains) by taking the money out.... thanks for any thoughts/guidance

“Diversity: Is The (Production) Industry Doing Enough?” https://shots.net/news/view/diversity-is-the-industry-doing-enough
I need help: In consulting interviews, is it a death sentence to have been part of the COVID-related layoffs at a Big 4 strategy arm? I have now been rejected from two other T2 strategy firms, and apparently the feedback is that “I have great experience” but they “are not moving forward with my candidacy”. I’m getting beaten down here. I have 10 years consulting experience, 7 at health plans, 5 in strategy, and 3 as a manager. I know my industry, function, and story. What am I missing?
Anyone else here have administrators at his or her school dropping in on Zoom classes or creating student accounts to join Google Classroom for some classes?
Any insights into McKinsey's Transformation practice? Type of work, culture, hours, prestige, anything really would be helpful. TIA
My mom’s sister died due to Covid and my mom has been depressed since then. She started to see a grief counselor but now the counselor also has Covid. The doctors she had been seeing have Covid too. My mom had to get tested and it was negative but she is so depressed that she has given up on life. It’s scary to receive a call when my dad says she has fainted and is talking like she is on her death bed. Her mental health is exacerbating her physical health issues and has resulted in significant..
