Does anyone work primarily out of a coworking space like wework or regus? New job is 100% wfh when not traveling (which is about once a month) and wondering if this would be a good option, since I have a kid on the way and will be harder to WFH.
I have always had a low milk supply but I still BF before a formula bottle. (My baby gets about 3oz from me each day. I gave up on the triple feeding because it was driving me bat sht crazy). Baby is now 3.5months and starting to sleep through the night. I’m not waking up to pump. How long before my minuscule supply goes away completely. Or will it?
My ex wife with whom I share custody of my 14 year old daughter has a live-in boyfriend who recently lost his mother and has developed a drinking problem. For the second week in a row I’ve had to pick up my daughter from their apartment because they were fighting and screaming at each other. Last time (1:30 AM Friday morning) he had physically assaulted my ex wife and then threatened to kill himself. I thought surely my ex wife would have kicked him out at least and better yet gotten a contd.
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!
Thoughts - my kid got selected in a gifted program and it’s 1.5 hour drive from our house. We also have a baby who goes to daycare near our house( 15 mins ). Is it worth to send my preschooler to the gifted program ? It’s only for 6 months and after that my baby would go to daycare near the preschool itself. I am just not sure whether a 1.5 commute in morning and evening is worth the school for 2’kids to go through and will reduce our family time everyday.
Can’t relate to people who think a baby is cute when it first comes out. Give it some time, they all look the same at first - like baked potatoes!
Independent primary vs outstanding state primary, which one would you choose for your child and why? Sorry, I’m not very familiar with UK education system.
Wife and kid are going to be out of town for the next 2 weeks. Instead of wasting time, I’d like to do something productive. What would you do if you have say 3+ hours a day. Maybe self help, wealth creation type books, work out daily, take care of some things around the house.
Has anyone taken iron dextran or iron sucrose IV for anemia during pregnancy? I’m wondering if it can have side effects to the baby
Has anyone interviewed for and begun a new job while pregnant? If so, what's the etiquette for disclosing?
My milk supply has dropped really rapidly in the last couple weeks and I can't figure out why. Please help! I was pumping 16-20 oz/day (baby refuses to nurse) and in the last two weeks it's been going lower and lower. Previously if I pumped every 6 hours, I would get 4-5 oz, but for the last week I've been getting 3-3.5, and just now I pumped 1.5 oz. I can't think of what could be the cause. I have a Spectra pump which I've used <300 hours (warranty is 1500). Baby is 6mos.Any thoughts or tips?

How do bonuses work if you took parental leave during the year? Do hours get prorated or do you still need to hit the normal threshold?
Just had a call with a group of analysts with first names like Jackson, Lincoln, Dempsey, Hudson, Hunter, and Kennedy. If you're having kids soon, I hope you'll help make this the generation that stops giving their children last names as first names. No child deserves this.
Was going over a case with my lawyer father, which he's working on, and realized the importance and power of 'skimming' which we obviously learn and practice doing our job. I was able to glean from...
Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
This was super uplifting and I though other dads would appreciate: baby hears for first time and just can’t stop laughing, and mom and little sister just loving it https://youtu.be/hgjC68KOjSQ
Charlotte 🐠 - moving from Orlando to Charlotte in next couple of months and need help figuring out where to live. Mid 30's, baby on the way. Love doing outdoor activities. Need a 2 or a 3 bedroom apartment. Buying vs renting? Any help appreciated.
had a miscarriage recently and am having hard time not to think or worry about what happened. It’s been 3 weeks and my husband just yelled at me saying 1. I should be grateful for the kid I have 2. We didn’t plan so I can’t worry about it. 3. That he is done caring for our toddler in the mornings( he wakes up pretty early in the morning due to daylight savings) and i am unable to sleep at night, end up sleeping in the morning. Does anyone go to therapy for miscarriage? Does it help?
Going on a production in LA last minute, will be my first in person work thing in two years. So excited to be shooting again then realized 90% of my cute work production/LA weather work clothes don’t fit anymore post covid weight gain. Just ugh 😓 I wish it didn’t bother me as much as it does but won’t lie it definitely killed some of my excitement today. I’ve seen some similar posts about woman on here dreading buying new wardrobes to go back to the office and I see you!

Anyone else get anxious about requesting PTO? I know it's so stupid to feel anxious about it but I still do.
I’m at a huge standstill in my career. Looking for any advice or tips ! I graduated Dec 2017 with a finance degree. I left my first job after 6 months after a new job offer and sadly the new job was not all gold so quit after a year in 2019 (harassment and toxic environment). I have been unemployed since. I had some interviews but no call backs. Don’t know if I should go back to school or what to even do at this point. Had my resume redone as well and interview coaching.
Not in IB or ER, but I have to ask (per CFA study), how common is it to run in to troublesome pension accounting issues? It seems like most companies have/are going the way of DC plans and away frm DB

I absolutely hate that HR essentially forces me to attend diversity workshops on how to be a successful Hispanic. Efforts should be focused not on race but economic background... am I the only one?
Which project seems more interesting? 1) Medicare Sales Strategy 2) FFV Provider Network Delivery
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?
