Hi moms. I have a one year old and I’m pregnant with my second. Anything that helps with nausea? It’s super strong when I change his poop diapers and unfortunately I have no help during the weekend.
Do people in analytics groups (Quantum Black, Gamma, Lighthouse, etc) get access and exposure to the parent firm's training for general mgmt consultants?
Pregnant with my second and my oldest will be 23 months when baby 2 arrives. What do I need to get with a second (second monitor, double stroller, what else?) TIA!
Expecting a baby this summer. Should I still be looking for other job opportunities? EY has a very generous paternity leave if you’ve been with the firm for 1+ years, but not sure if I would have the same opportunity to take 2-3 months leave if I switch jobs. Can I potentially work parental leave into negotiations?
I feel like my kids 1st grade teacher is being too strict, but I'm not sure if this is normal or I'm being sensitive because it's my child. E.g. she gave him 2/10 for his math homework because he doodled on the page, colored in the circle that has the page number, didn't draw the word problem neatly, wrote his last name under the name line, and says some of his numbers aren't legible. All his answers were correct, except one where he forgot to fill in the blank. Is this normal? X-posting
Does anyone have any tricks to make themselves look older? When I'm clean shaven I'm a baby face 👶🏼
What age were you when you had each kid? I'm 32 and we are trying for our first. SO is 36. But the endless relentless lectures from the women of my family about why "it's so late! Hurry! It's going to be impossible soon!!" is driving me insane. Ideally I would want it to be planned and natural, not IVF or anything, but you never know.
About to take an offer at EY. Want a baby soon and saw the great news about increased parental leave. Question is, can u use vacation time consecutively with it? Right now most on leave take 5 months
Chem classroom social media. Do you use it? I have recently started and had a lot of success this year in terms of student and parent engagement. Please feel free to follow @johnstonchemistry on IG
I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
One week into kindergarten, already scheduling my first PCR for a sick kid. Buckle up, I guess?
How normal is it to be pulled off a trial team because you tell your boss you are moving after trial? I have a trial coming up first week of Oct. This case has been my baby, and I’m going to try it with my boss. I tell my boss up front that, for family reasons, I’ve gotten a new job and will be moving to another city two weeks after trial will likely end. He then gives my trial witnesses to another attorney, but is still going to make me do grunt work. Is he unreasonable or am I?
What is a good suggestion for a weekend mom-baby/toddler date? Reconnecting with old college friends with toddlers/babies. Not sure what to suggest. Brunch? Morning walk?

Anyone looked at getting pregnant in a non-traditional way- How did you find a sperm bank you liked or have a convo with someone you know to be a donor?
Paytm founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma was asked how he’d meet his future capital needs. He replied, “Mere paas Ma hain, Jack Ma” (I have Ma, Jack Ma), a reference to a famous line from the Bollywood film Deewar, in which the character says a person with a mother — Ma — has all the riches one needs https://restofworld.org/2021/chinese-investors-lose-out-in-indian-tech-ipo-boom/
I am 9 months pregnant and my firm offers 16 weeks maternity leave. Well, it just so happens that I was offered a job at a new firm, and they are flexible with start date but do not provide maternity leave (understandable since I don't even work there yet). Is it possible to accept the new job with a January start date, but not tell my current firm until a normal notice period ends, so I can keep mat leave? No payback requirements or anything. Would they know somehow?

After a Visa transfer, do we have to go through an interview to get the visa stamped, like the very first time? Or are we eligible for Dropbox? Has anybody done this recently? Thanks in advance.
Thought: When you see diversity of skin color as the most critical factor you miss out of diversity of experience and ideas. Quite often these overlap, but there are a lot of people out there like JD Vance who come from poor white roots, but because of their skin color they’re assumed to have some magical privilege bestowed upon them by society. Likewise, wealthy people of color are lumped in with their less affluent counterparts. We’re so quick to look at skin color and see the sum (cont’d)
