I know it’s petty of me but I am so jealous of my 8 month old relationship with his grandma! It’s beautiful, don’t get me wrong but I wish that he loved me the same way or atleast had similar reaction towards me as well. It’s especially hard because I am FTM, sleep deprived, hormonal and hating my job because it is taking me away from my kid! I try to prioritize (trust me I really really try) but between pumping, managing household and ill health…

Ladies how do you keep your sex life from not dying when you have a newborn? We had sex maybe twice the entire course of my pregnancy (at the beginning, I bled a little after sex so the doctor asked us to cool ourselves a bit lol) and with our baby here we hardly have the time or mood to do it. We have our baby in our room (and will probably have him until he’s a year old) and I don’t feel like doing it when the baby’s beside us. Looking to hear what you ladies have done to keep it alive!!!

Any tech recruiters in here? My wife has just completed her MS in Cybersecurity and has been working in UHC for 10 years, currently a research analyst.

I know we all love the work from home (or do we?) but does anyone actually miss traveling for their consulting engagements and all the fun that goes along with it?

Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.
