On one hand - I don’t think you should adjust family planning to accommodate an employer. On the other hand - having gone through a pregnancy shortly after starting a new job, it is very, very hard. I don’t say that to deter you, just to prepare you!

Employer was great. But my pregnancy was draining so first trimester + still learning a new job was whewwww.

It might not happen in the next few months. To start a new job and adding the stress and focus of TTC is a lot. Doesn’t matter about the managers feeling in this situation, but being realistic towards the process.

I had the same worry! I started my job, waited 3 months and then started trying. This ensured I would give birth past the 1 year mark to qualify for maternity leave (make sure you factor this in). Also though, it took 7 months of trying to get pregnant. You can never truly plan a pregnancy 😅

Would you go on an international vacation shortly after a frozen embryo transfer (5-10 days after)? It is looking like my first transfer opportunity will be shortly before a trip I already have planned. I’d rather not wait, and the one time I have been pregnant before I implanted on a international vacation but I don’t know if this is a stupid thing to do? I have a very stressful job so maybe it would be good to be away from work?? Curious what others think.

Has anyone here used the "Read Scripture" app? It goes through the entire Bible and includes accompanying summary videos from "The Bible Project" (whose videos can also be found on YouTube). I love how it groups portions of Scripture and the videos are helpful for making meaningful connections with the text. I love these for myself, but they're super kid-friendly, too. Excellent support for your daily study. Enjoy!

Welcome to our pre-k inclusive classroom. Even with 8 students, and only face to face for 4 hours, we struggle. We struggle being heard through our masks. We struggle with social distancing. We struggle as we find ourselves constantly reminding students to keep their masks on. We struggle to keep them engaged and to teach. One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.

Hi single parents! How do you cope with being the NOT preferred parent? They say a mom and son bond is unbreakable but my son always chooses his dad 🥲 no matter how hard I try for our relationship, he always misses his dad even if they spent the whole week together. I love that their relationship is strong, but still hurts to know he’s fine without me but not his dad!

Laugh of the day. I exclusively pumped (baby didn’t like BF) until month 5 and stopped due to supply tanking and going back to work. Now my baby is on formula and needs a special kind because of cow milk protein allergy. Of course the formula is hard to find because of the shortage so I’m having family around the country get samples from their Pediatricians to send to me. This morning my dad goes to me “Why don’t you just breastfeed him instead, it’s better for babies anyway”. 🙄
