My 7 week old baby!!!
Looking for advice on how/when to tell my bosses I’m pregnant. I’m only 8 weeks and have my first doctor’s appointment this week to confirm the pregnancy. We haven’t told any family or friends yet. We have been back in the office since June, so I’m not working remotely. I plan to wait until 12/13 weeks to tell anyone at work. I’m 29 and a 4th year associate. I do work for 4 main partners, though I have closer working relationships with some more than others. Any advice appreciated!
Anytime I complain about something not being right in my life, I'm going to remind myself to watch this video of this migrant mother lugging her child across state lines just so I can get perspective of how blessed most of us are. Truly heart wrenching! :(
Moms, I am 14 weeks pregnant and I went through a lot of anxiety and depression during my first trimester. This has impacted my relationship with my husband and especially my in-laws. When I am anxious, I need space. But my in-laws wanted to support me by coming over or inviting me over. All that was too much for me. So anytime I was at their place, I would literally just hide in one of the rooms with the lights off. My nausea was so bad that I was having a hard time even thinking straight.
What are my best options for scoring small side gigs before end of year? I deduct lots of business expenses for doing some freelance work, but we had a baby so I didn’t earn any 1099s this year.
Is anyone feeling the disrespect of students in a classroom? The attitude towards adults when a student is interacting with the said adult. Wow! The mother in me just wants to wash the child’s mouth out for such disrespect, BUT definitely NOT allowed in school. How have kids gotten this far w/o any reprimand for their behavior? What are we teaching them if we keep ignoring….

Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.
Anyone dealt with your sibling getting divorced and the SIL fallout? My brother is going though a divorce and it is ugly. She is saying he is “unfit” (he is not). He has a 32 yr old who I am very close to, and a 12 yr old who is my goddaughter. His ex was my bff and now she says he is an unfit father and trying to take away his parental rights. I am stunned. It has fractured us beyond what I thought possible. Do I stay neutral for the nieces? Do I shout at the top of my lungs he is a good guy?
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?
Any parent willing to share experience and journey for a mild Autism child over the years. When you noticed, how it progressed, what helped the most etc. 3yr son is diagnosed with mild Autism and I feel he is getting better in some areas but worse with stimming and zoning out. I know evey child is different but a worried parent trying to decipher what future holds. Thanks!
Has anyone used bright horizon’s back up child care? I’m currently juggling my two little ones (almost 1 and 3) because grandma had a procedure that sidelined her for a few weeks. We’ve never done care centers or outside help - so naturally I’m apprehensive, but with busy season ending, these final few weeks are proving to be too much. I can do in home or a center- but my nerves are holding me back, esp for my almost 1 year old.

Can someone please help me navigate concerns about the vaccine? Literally all I hear from Fox News zombies saying big pharma and Bill gates are pushing the vax for personal profits only and Covid is not that deadly. What has worked with those in the inner network circle? What hasn’t? My pregnant wife who is nurse received both doses and I think a couple relatives believe the baby is going to be a cyborg.

Got an email “reminder” that weekly lesson plans are due Monday morning. I’m tired. I want to reply “no” because I don’t have time to make detailed lesson plans on their template...for lessons that I won’t follow...for a curriculum they haven’t given me yet....But I should probably just ignore it until I’m less tired so I don’t let my mouth get me in trouble. Do y’all turn in lesson plans?
Let’s say you have PTSD and that traveling is one the triggers. At what point would you bring this up in the hiring process for a remote job when they expect you travel a handful of times a year? I’m afraid if I say anything that I’d never get hired.
