3 months pregnant. So far I’ve had two ultrasounds at visits. I’ll be 4 months at next visit and yeah I guess I go every month for a visit. Question, do you get an ultrasound done at every visit? Maybe not required but can I ask for it?..
My mother is having elective surgery today and expects me to take her to the hospital, be there, pick her up etc. We are in CA, the virus is very much here! Thanks for letting me vent!
Thoughts on quitting during parental leave?
How important is genetic testing ?I am 12 weeks pregnant but don’t want to know something might be wrong and worry through out . At the same time , like to know on experience how it helped others
I found out today that my employer doesn’t offer any paid parental leave (maternity or paternity). This isn’t a major issue now, but my wife and I are planning on trying in a year or so from now. How many other employers don’t offer any paid leave at all? Coming from public accounting this seemed outrageous to me, but curious to see what other companies are like.
Hi fam! Me and my partner (females) just got an oral consent from my partners best friend (gay male) to be a sperm donor. Anyone has experience with this? I know lesbians usually go to sperm bank but we wanted to know “baby daddy” and have him involved as a godparent and when kids ask questions introduce him as a father. Personal life stories and dos and donts welcome. All my friends are straight or gay men so I have this resource and general internet.
What did you do/wish you had done to prep for baby #2s arrival? Feel like we did a lot with #1 and now have a month to go for #2, but I feel so unprepared for some reason.
EY 🐠 - Are there any issues with dad's taking the full 16 weeks for parental leave? It says primary care givers only. Thanks!
Promote to manager in October and just found out my wife is pregnant with baby number two with a due date of October 1. Guess my first 4 months of manager are going to be on leave!
I'm in my last trimester with my first child! Was wondering if the mommas of the group share any tips on navigating motherhood, and juggling career and family? What were some of the highlights and challenges?
I have a self sufficient child thankfully! In reading a lot of comments all over the place, I do hope folks have a better appreciation for the mental struggle low income earners have....
I'm thinking about getting pregnant just so I can take advantage of maternity leave. Does that make me a terrible person?
FTM - I’m just curious on how some of your maternity leave is set up. I received short term disability pay for 6 weeks and then paid from my job for 6 - they offered additional bonding time, but unpaid. The paid portion came from my “sick time.” I wasn’t sick, I was caring for and bonding with my son. That’s been bothering me since I returned. Now I don’t have any sick leave and any last minute time that I need to take is unpaid. Other countries give moms the entire year, 100% paid 🥴
Moms of more than one kid: have you been able to continue your career with the same trajectory as other women who are not moms? Am very worried about essentially falling off of the map completely. Tips?
Question! Does anyone know what KPMG’s paternal leave looks like? My bf and I are having a baby in the spring and my firm gives all new parents three months of paid paternal leave. Is the policy for KPMG different for the Woman giving birth vs the supporting partner (Man)? Thanks!
Currently a few weeks left on parental leave and have had a potential opportunity come up with a smaller firm that I think makes more sense for my career goals. The question I have is: assuming I get an offer and the details work out, how do I navigate leaving? Should I provide notice right away? Go back to my current firm for a couple weeks and then give notice? I certainly don’t want to burn bridges. How would you feel on the other side?
I have this problem that I picked up from my father growing up: can’t effectively communicate negative feelings to people that I’m close with. I sort of expect them to know, and when they don’t get it or don’t show efforts that I’m expecting to receive, I start to distance myself from them and shut down. I started to reflect back on why I do this, and sense that this is some kind of a sick way of showing I have more power over the other person. How can I fix this?
Hello! Trying to get ready for baby girl 2 in January. Ours will be 5 years apart and I feel a little a little rusty. Any products that we must have for this time around?
Can anyone provide insight to working at Holland and Hart? Also, when do parental leave benefits kick in? Is there a waiting period? Do they negotiate lateral bonuses for losing out on present firm end of year bonus? TIA.

I took my first sick day at my new job. I am back today now some people are barely talking to me. Barely anyone asked if I am doing better. I find it a bit strange. I'm not expecting much but not even a fake pretend to care that I am doing better. My other jobs were not like this. This is more a vent than anything.
I just got 2500 spg points bc hotel maintenance walked into my room while I was in. Pretty f*ed up considering it was 5:30 and I was pantless (note: he saw nothing) is this adequate points?

I have been assigned 50% staffing but my Project manager expects me to put in 100% time as I am not staffed on any other project. Is it fair for him to expect this? I am upset as this affects my utility rate.
I wonder if it's a case of the Mondays on the bench or if my motivation will just never return...🤔
