I am a relatively new Project Leader at BCG and have a very crazy and packed schedule with no time to care for my food, exercise, etc. I just found out I am pregnant and I am nervous about how I will take care of myself and the baby with this busy lifestyle. I would love tips on how some of you navigated through this phase. How to ensure you are eating/exercising right? When/how to tell your bosses/team so that they are mindful? General tips for the first trimester? Should I change jobs?
Joined the ACN Strategy Careers LinkedIn group. Literally every post is by Ruth Faulkner and about women/diversity/being a mother and professional, not about "the job". What a waste.
We recently had our 20 week scan and our OB brought up that the baby had a small hole in their heart. She’s mentioned since this is isolated and not coupled with anything it shouldn’t be a concern at all and the hole will naturally fill out. She promised that we won’t see this in the 30 week ultrasound. I can’t help but be worried! This didn’t happen with our first. Has anyone experienced this in their 20 week scan?
Ok, I'm the one the SLC plane; I have a baby next to me and another behind me... kill me please

Do any other firms have a policy that requires you to return to work for a certain period after paid parental leave, and if you choose to leave you are required to pay it back?

Thoughts on quitting during parental leave?
For couples who are not married yet - Do you guys talk about net worth, income, or anything even finance related? I know my SO earns more given his current industry, but thinks it’s rude to talk about those things. But I’m wondering… isn’t it normal for couples who live together or are married share those info? For example - How am I going to know what to pay for our child’s education in the future etc?
Hey mamas, need some advice. What do you do for back-up childcare when your kid is sick? We recently put our baby in daycare and it seems like every week, she’s getting some kind of cold, rash… and we have to take her out. Don’t have family near so that’s not an option. I’m wfh for now but not sure how to still be productive and care for her.

I recently became PMP certified and am working as a Project Coordinator on a large ERP project. I’ve been in the position for 2 months, enjoy the work, and would like more responsibility and work from home. The director made an inappropriate (sexual) comment; it was so inappropriate that I don’t want to work with the company and am looking for a new opportunity. I would like to get into IT, but I don’t have a speciality. What are tech companies looking for in a Project/Product Manager?

I’m entry level (2020 grad). Used to work at an awesome startup before my current job in SaaS. I’ve been ramping at this co. though so I haven’t even gotten the experience yet I want on my resume. But I talked with the startup co-founder about rejoining. I was thinking part time to start, but he says there’s a high chance of a full time job for me there. Startup is 100% remote. My job at current company is client meetings and deliverables. How difficult would it be to work both at once?
