Planning on a kid.. is this the right time considering the pandemic? I’m 33 and don’t want to miss the bus.
Are other hospitals seeing an increase in injuries related to domestic violence and child abuse? Since the mandated stay at order we are seeing more severe injuries and death related to both.
Thanks to this bowl, I was mentally prepared that life post baby is tough, but still this phase is rough! Sleep deprivation, cluster feeding and second guessing every action...Mama's! You were right! Keeping this 8 day old is way more difficult than going through a medical conditions ridden pregnancy! Now, please tell me it gets better sometime in future or else I will start crying hiding in my closet again!
I’m in second trimester. I just came from my grandfather’s funeral, outside. My aunt was around her 2 siblings last week that had Covid and she hasn’t been vaxed. She hugged me and mom (4 weeks from her last chemo session) and only told us about her siblings after. I’m so mad. I guess I’m just venting but the potential complications for the baby, me, and my mom make me worry. Any comforting words?
Shoutout to pregnant 🐠 in their first trimester who don't want to tell anyone yet but are sick AF and struggling through every day. This shit is hard.

Help! 7 wks pregnant (first time!) but need guidance/tips on how to make the sickness work - locally staffed but struggling bc I am constantly nauseated or throwing up. Just want to be home / sleep!
Abused and isolated as a kid. I have terrible memory. Like I don’t really remember the past few months except in broad strokes and memories of my childhood are more non existent than existent. I’m working through this with my therapist. Does anyone have any experience with emotional and memory repression? Curious on your advice
How did you all manage first trimester in consulting? I am six weeks pregnant and I worked 17 hours yesterday, pretty damn exhausted amidst the nausea. Day before I felt dead tired suddenly for a few hours and couldn’t work. I hope I pass through this first trimester safely. Any tips please?
I got a positive pregnancy test this morning after 1 week of a missed period. I am super anxious right now as we were not planning to get pregnant yet. I am 27 years old and i am not sure if i am ready yet 😢 I feel really guilty for having this feeling inside of me. Is this normal? How do you prepare yourself mentally?
Can someone smarter than me explain the mechanics of the child tax credit in the America Rescue Plan? If I qualify for monthly installments of the credit but fill out my W4 so my withholding is as close as possible to my tax liability, shouldn’t the credit installments effectively be offset by an increase in fed withholding so that my take home pay is the same as if I claimed the credit on an annual return? I know there is an increase in the credit, but I’m focusing on logistics.

Help, fancy work event next week and it is cocktail attire and uh, my dress I wore to the last fancy event (pre covid) def doesn't fit now. I have some new dresses that lean more workwear but one still makes me look pregnant. Should I just buy shapewear? Rent the runway? I checked out nordstrom and hard to find something my style that seems flattering (sleeve/modest neckline, not bodycon...). Oh and this will be outdoors bc covid Any suggestions? Tempted to go full jumpsuit I'm desperate!!!
Last night I decided to leave my husband over recurring emotional infidelity. We have a one yo. I’m worried abt how this will impact my career (I’m pretty early tenure) and don’t know how I could parent without a partner as a consultant Also worried about how this will affect my finances immediately (I make more and have more in my retirement accounts) and in the long term What should my next step be? I haven’t yet told him.
i’m so happy to have this platform to vent. one of my ex-best friends that I had a falling out with took me off on instagram but kept me on facebook as “restricted”. I figured this out after a mutual friend had a baby and she commented on the post. I went above and beyond for this friend and i’m really saddened. we also have nothing in common anymore so it’s also ok, but still sad nevertheless.
For the tax folks , I have a scenario below : - parent on social security - older than 65 - on Medicare through ss Question - do Medicare or social security provide a 1095 B? I would expect some kinda proof of coverage. TIA
Did anyone freak out once they found out they were expecting? We've been talking about having another for ages and have planned for a lot of specifics, but now that it's happened I'm simultaneously super excited and anxious about how my job will react, how my daughter will react, and how another kid will fit into our lives. Tell me it's just the hormones?
Wondering if I'll ever find someone who is just ready, kind, supportive and not a big f*cking baby all time? Where's my shoulder to cry on?

Incoming junior-level consultant wants to know what is “billable hour”. Once in a while I see discussions around billable hours, but I don’t know how that works. After googling, it appears to me that billable hour only matters to me if my salary is paid by hours. Since I will receive a fixed annual salary, does this mean that I don’t need to worry about the concept of billable hours? A related questions: generally speaking, is the bonus related to the hours that I worked? Thanks!
After Delta delayed my flight I negotiated with them 15,000 miles as compensation for their mistake...
Got local admin privileges on my laptop! I’m gonna overclock this bad boy and run a VM bitcoin farm YEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH BOIIIIIIIIIIIIII
Manager : why didn’t you reach out more when you had unassigned days? Me : I am ahead of schedule for my billable hours for the year and when I worked 3 back to back weekends nobody reached out to take some work off my shoulders? Those unassigned days were already been worked. Manager : *silence*
Serious question to my unvaccinated fish, would you consider getting vaccinated at some point (in 2, 3, 5 years) or not?
