16 weeks and so worried all of the stress I’m under is going to hurt the baby. Between work, my own scary (non-pregnancy) health stuff, the pandemic, my mom (who is a widow and lives alone, basically isolated by choice due to covid) is having health issues, and pressures to keep billable hours up, I’ve been having complete breakdowns. Today I spent almost the entire day crying and now have to make up the billable time this weekend. I really worry abt what effect this will have on the babe.

What strategies do you adopt to maximize praying (and ibaadah in general) during Ramadan when on a case? Any tips?
Hey mommas - My baby is 14 weeks old and I haven't gotten my period back yet. I'm worried I'm pregnant again. When did you get your period back? For context, I'm breastfeeding but not exclusively (I am pumping and nursing as much as I can though). I've been on the pill since 6 weeks and my husband used condoms for the first few weeks once we started again. Surprisingly, I can't find anything online that's helpful. Any sense of a timeframe would be tremendously anxiety-reducing!

Ladies, I just found out my fiancé’s mother has Alzheimer and the only people who can look after her is my fiancé and his brother. It’s still early but fiancé says he might have to move back home if things get worse. My parents don’t know, and I know for sure they will be against getting married. I’m scared but I love him too much. What would you do?
I recently attended an Indian (zoom) wedding wherein the bride’s mother used intelligent before beautiful and kind to describe the bride. First time ever did I hear such a thing. Can’t wait for the day when this becomes the business-as-usual. Women are more than their looks.
Has anyone starting trying to get pregnant after starting at a new firm or did you wait at least a year ?
Happy Father’s Day out there. You Padres are killing it with your selfless dedication with your sacrifices to your families. Challenge yourselves to spend time more time with your kids.

Any advice for how to ask my husband to get more involved in childcare and/or help around the house? I love him but I really wish he would put down the phone and pick up the baby more (2m old)

Today is my first day back at work (and first full day back in my physical office) after a few weeks off for parental leave. Needless to say, I am struggling to stay focused on anything other than wanting to go back home to my spouse and child. I know I shouldn't take an emotional temperature on day one, but it has been more difficult being back than I anticipated. Any tips for navigating the waters for the first day/week/month back?
Does anyone work at CVS Health in Northbrook and commute without a car (I heard you can take the L/metra + shuttle)? What are the best neighborhoods to live in for the easiest commute but still fun for a single mid-20s person and what’s the estimated commute time?
Husband and I are moving to Seattle in a couple of months. His office is in downtown Seattle and mine is in Sodo. He wants to be able to walk or bike to work. I will be mostly WFH but want to be relatively close to office. We also have a pup. Any recommendations for neighborhoods or apartment buildings much appreciated! We would prefer to be close to parks and grocery stores vs. bars.

Anyone here use Celsius to generate interest on cryptocurrency? What do you think of the security, insurance and competency of the exchange? Is this a wise place to keep a large amount of cryptocurrency for a sustained period of time?
Was reading an info article I received about "Reading Progress." I am copying the lead sentence from Monica Burn's June 21, 2021 article for you, but I really want to know if anyone is using this app. "Reading Progress is a new, free app built right into Microsoft Teams." It looks good to me on the surface for ALL teachers and is time efficient! Any thoughts?
Recently accepted an offer but I got another one later on with better pay and benefits for the same job. How common is for people to withdraw from accepted offers and how do you address it? Will that affect possibilities to move to that company in the future?

Is it stupid of me to apply to LS consulting firms with little experience in business? My only intern experience has been at a local pharma business. Other than that, most of my experiences are in a clinical setting.
This may sound odd but I want to eventually work at all the big 4. To me it'll be like collecting infinity stones. Once you work at all 4, what crappy super power do you get? Currently 25% of the way there
