How do you feel about putting on hold your family expansion plans because of a recent promotion? Do you think it’s a normal thing to do? And if so, how long is the normal waiting period? Knowing that the parental leave is about 6 months!
All-my dad has been guilt tripping me into visiting him. He is 8 hours away driving without stopping. I am pregnant and am not traveling anywhere where I can’t drive non stop - not even seeing my in laws 90 minutes away. I know it sounds crazy but that is where I am. He half jokingly said I could wear Depends. Please tell me I’m not crazy and that it’s okay for me to not go and my dad should be at least somewhat understanding. We don’t have the best relationship.
Parental leave question. In the US, assuming full pay, what are the birthing and non-birthing parent leave durations for McKinsey, Bain, BCG, and others?

Any advice for a newly pregnant consultant (6weeks in)? Do people usually go for appointments and scans without telling anyone at work till the required time to give notice? Currently on a busy project so a bit worried going through first trimester without work’s support, already struggling with energy levels and nausea
Anyone ever test positive for Covid? My husband and baby are positive. (Baby is fine, husband not feeling well) I’m negative. Any advice?
I really don’t think there’s a chance that the SCOTUS overturns Roe. I would hope this affirming decision further slams the door on states trying to legislate what happens in a doctor’s office between a pregnant woman and her doctor. There’s always a chance this swings the other way, but this SCOTUS so far has a non partisan approach, regardless of what the media has portrayed. The panic seems unwarranted.
Hi ladies! Any ideas of what to get my friend who just had her first child? I’m going to see her and the baby for the first time this weekend and I feel like flowers aren’t that practical
I’m pregnant and have been at my job for a few months to qualify for the state family leave which is only 4 weeks. I’m wondering what others have done to prolong their maternity leave when starting a new job.

Do you all ever have guilt calling in a sick day? I have a pretty bad cold and 5 months pregnant. I’m just so slow today and want to nap. Working from home
Do you have small talks with your manager and directs? Feel like an as*hole for not liking it. My boss likes to start our 1 on 1s with topics around family, trip plans, hobbies, and other small talks. I don’t care how his weekend was. Or his baby. And personally I don’t like sharing much about my family or personal life so the small talks thing is very annoying to me. He’s super nice and I like him a lot but I just don’t feel like we should try hard to get to know each other via small talks.
Are there any pregnant women on the bowl who HAVE gotten the covid vaccine? How far along were you and how were the side effects? (cont)
My wife is pregnant. Do the general courtesies of telling your manager/work beginning of 3rd trimester still apply during covid/work from home? Her industry has been hit hard and her job has been doing furloughs and layoffs. We can get pretty far without telling due to WFH but don’t want to put her boss in a bad position either.
Has anyone changed employers in the same year as taking parental leave? Planning to actively look elsewhere, starting in June. However, we are expecting our first child in December.
I genuinely laughed. Nice work Mother-LA.

https://www.yahoo.com/huffpost/district-layoffs-094500928.html For those who have been screaming we can't open the economy back up until there is a vaccine, I hope you realize this is only the beginning of layoffs-and just one sector of economy.

Has anyone else here experienced significant weight gain due to the medication they are on? Could be medical or mental health-related. If so, does eating well and exercise still help reduce it?
How does one start the negotiation process with company that made a new offer? I have the comp details from them but it’s below what I’d be expecting for 2022 TC if I were to stay in consulting. Additionally, the base offered was lower than what the external recruiter i was working with had shared. Should I bring that up or go straight to the negotiation?
