I am 8 weeks pregnant. Just went in for my lab results and my progesterone is super low. This is a significant signal that the pregnancy is ectopic or otherwise non viable. We're going in for an ultrasound early next week to find out more.
Walked my baby to work today in a baby carrier (daycare is next to office). After skipping a morning nap he fell asleep 20 min before I had to be in the office for an internal leads meeting...(cont.)
I’ve a question, can we take parental leave in TSYS during probation or 1 week cl/el leave ?
Thanks in advance TSYS
How ironic is to work in Healthcare Advertising and not being able to take care of my own mental + physical health because of daily work, meetings and pitches during Covid. I miss my days in consumer.

Anyone has extreme caffeine sensitivity here? I stopped drinking coffee since September because Everytime I would drink coffee, I would get really anxious and jittery a few hours after. Today, I was feeling sick so decided to make chai for myself. Black tea does have some amount of caffeine so I got very jittery 2-3 hours after consuming it. It is killing me and I guess I should give up on occasional chais too 😔
Can't help but feel like I'm in a rut. I'm 23 and realized I still haven't accomplished goals that I set when I was 20. I waste copious amounts of time on Netflix. I keep losing weight only to gain it back. I bought a standing desk and am still sitting on my bed to work. I told myself I'm going to accomplish XYZ certification exams over a year ago and started studying 3 or 4 times only to quit studying 3 days in. How do I stop being such a loser. I feel pathetic
I am so sick of hearing about well-being and the “tips” we should adopt in trying to make a difference. Blocking out time in my diary doesn’t do anything aside from making my days longer. It’s about time management assess workload (client and non client) and actively resolve that as the FIRST step to helping most of our wellbeing. Rant, sorry.
Parenting question..my kid loves golf and swings his club daily after school. When his friend comes over, the friend tends to hit our house with golf balls. After being reprimanded a couple of times, the friend hit the house again and dented siding (again). I texted the mom asking to tell her kid not to hit golf balls at my house. It was a tactful message. Her response was..a. their house has many dents and she replaced her siding 3 times, and b. it was not on purpose. How would you respond back
Hey Grey 🐠- What's your parental leave policy?
Husband and I have been on a long journey TTC, and haven’t been on a vacation since September, just before we found out about our second trimester loss. Now, he doesn’t want to plan any trips so we can save $ for IVF - planned retrieval in late March. Would you recommend we do *something* to get out of town, or will I want to hunker down as I go through retrieval(s) and transfer? It’s been a long, sad slog.
Need to take an insurance plan for 60+ parents who are going to be visiting for our kids delivery. Suggestions on insurances which have good coverage and little/no hassle?
Does anyone have insights on how hard it is to get down to scratch as an adult (I wish to play competitive/amateur golf eventually)? Everyone that I know who is scratch or better started as a kid. For reference, my progression has been:
June - Nov 2020: Beginner to ~30 handicap
April - Nov 2021: 25 to 17 handicap
April - July 2022: 17 to 12 handicap
Anybody else feel unnecessarily guilty when emailing your manager that you are taking a sick day? Idk why but I always feel like even though it’s completely normal, that it is being judged negatively.
Was previously working as an advisor growing a nice book and left to move 18hrs away to be close to family. I was pregnant and desperate to take what would move us and now I’m a planner working for FAs and I’m making $130k. Was fine at first while I got thru pregnancy but now I’m not happy & regret accepting the job and pay. I’m supporting others who are making 3-4times my salary. I have 10 yrs experience and CFP, often more than FAs I’m helping. Ask for more $$ or start over being an FA?
For moms who have delivered before, I am terrified of the delivery. That day haunts me. I’m a first time pregnant mom, and my own mother lost her first child in child birth, so I’ve inherited a lot of trauma about child birth. How bad is it, really? How scary? Any words of encouragement and honestly telling me what to expect (don’t sugar coat) I would appreciate. I am so scared.
WFH 3 days a week which is amazing however, it’s been super annoying & challenging b/c upstairs neighbor 4yr old kid is constantly running/ jumping. That’s all I hear!! I’ve confronted them 2x. Tips?
To push off or not? TTC for 3 years, 1 year with RET. Just had a failed IVF transfer and my mental health and spouses mental health are in tough spot. His parents are “temporarily” living with us and MIL has severe Alzheimer’s. All of this is straining our marriage badly. I’m torn between pushing through another round of IVF given it’s been SO long - or whether there’s just way too much going on and we need to get our house in order. Is there a right time for IVF?
Is anyone thinking about mail in voting this year?
Why do some companies wait until one week or two weeks out to let employees know that a holiday half day will become a full day off or that the company will be closed from Christmas to New Years? I've experienced this at two companies so far. It's quite annoying because you don't know when you can plan your trips.

I believe improving one’s sales conversion rate is something everyone want to improve but no one wants to admit they would like to work it. Funny how lawyers will spend thousands on seminars to improve trial skills. But this topic is not discussed in our profession. I have read books in sales. But am unable to find any for lawyers. I want convert every lead I can. Does anyone have tips, books, cle’s or studied this topic?

I’m being induced tonight. Any tips or things I should expect or mentally prepare for? Please keep your fingers crossed for me!
I’m six weeks and have either a yeast infection or UTI (been awhile since I had either and symptoms since last night can go either way). Have an urgent care apt later today but worried about antibiotics or medications while it’s still so early and the risk of miscarriage or birth defects. Anyone been through this in first trimester?
Cross posting: For those of you who have had a miscarriage, did your cycles return to normal intervals immediately after your first period post miscarriage? Asking because I'm TTC.
For background, I was only 5 weeks along in my last pregnancy. Most info I'm finding online is about the first period after miscarriage, not the second
In my 10th week and actively interviewing. I am starting to show a little. How do I navigate this?!
Re: asking about policy for employees giving birth, time off, I will definitely show before my probationary period is over, etc. (Based in NY).
How many of you ladies are planning or ended up being a stay at home mom post maternity leave? I'm really considering it because I've always desired to stay home for a few years in child's first few years of life and we can afford it, but I'm also feeling a little sheepish about my work reputation and losing a great role (since I would have to quit). This will be my first child, FYI
I need a portable breast pump. Anyone have any recommendations for Elvie vs. willow? Trying to utilize my husband’s insurance to get my 2nd pump. Currently already have the Spectra S2 and I love it, but I’d like something I can use to pump without being tethered to the wall.
Can folks recommend books for first time moms? I’m very early first trimester but feel totally lost and overwhelmed already. I need like very basic 101 how to take care of an infant and beyond lol. Especially ones that include items that are must haves or nice to haves so I can actually start thinking about a registry.
At what point should I take a pregnancy test? I am getting crazy anxiety to the point it is causing major distractions to my daily life and it’s frustrating as heck

What prenatal vitamins did you all use?
26.5 weeks pregnant and feeling this lower abdominal pain (under my belly button). It comes and goes. It’s coming in waves and goes away but I can feel it’s there waiting to flash another wave, if that makes sense. I read online that women go through Braxton Hicks contractions. Is that how they feel like? Baby moving as usual so I know (guess) is fine.
Almost 18 weeks and just got result from blood test that I have low platelets count (77). Anyone experienced this before or currently? Did some research and it seems like if it keeps at this low level, then I may have to do a C-session…
Did anyone get a 4th COVID vaccine during pregnancy? I already have 3 from pre-pregnancy but I feel hesitant about the next booster since I’m pregnant. I’m due in Nov which is ultimate germ season so I can see why it would be good but equally I don’t feel as comfortable having it pregnant. I also caught COVID in June for the first time so 🤷🏽♀️
remedies for morning sickness.... help!!!!!
30 weeks. Appetite is alright during breakfast and lunch, but it really drops starting at around 4pm. No appetite for dinner at all. Only wanna eat fruits. Anyone in the similar situation?
I know everyone is different, how long did it take you to fall pregnant with your first? We have just started trying but I’m already stressed at the possibility of hiding a pregnancy at friends and family gatherings, taking an international trip in April, and the ‘perfect’ time to be pregnant/due (I know there’s no perfect time!). I feel like a crazy person!
Can we talk pregnancy weight gain? I am 28 weeks with my first (age 27) and have gained 32 lbs, and I’m on track to gain 60. I’ve always been petite, and am not sure how I can prevent gaining the full 60 because I am eating very healthy. Any tips to manage now or lose it after? I’ve heard breastfeeding helps and I’ve also heard that is a myth.
