Anyone for Yosemite/Sequoia next weekend?
I just joined our planning committee and have to come up with ideas for Hispanic Heritage Month (virtually). But no one on the committee is Hispanic so any ideas on how to authentically celebrate?
Does anyone know if one can send packages to India from USA and if the pandemic has caused any delays?

So frustrated with the PFS exams. Been taking the certificate path which I thought would be easier as it is one subject at a time but instead each exam is filled with detailed questions on topics that were barely covered if at all. Can anyone comment if the experience PFS assessment is any easier?
Is it still true CDP>TDP? Everything I’ve read about TDP seems like it’s an area to avoid. If so, why?
I have a good agency job in NYC, but fiancé is stationed in Norfolk, VA (military). I want to move to be with him, but not many agency jobs there and afraid to take a step down. Thoughts/experiences?

Probably no right answer but a girl can ask. In my early to mid 40s and preggo. I'm walking and started prenatal yoga. So paranoid what its gonna do post birth to my gut. What can I do now to help alleviate some gut damage. I know the older we are we dont bounce back as nicely.
Okay so tell me if I’m the only one but I feel like I need to test everyday. I’ve also noticed the test line getting lighter.
I feel like my mum only ever looks for me when she wants money. Once i send it’s all good for her. I’m going through a lot being pregnant for the first time but she hardly randomly asks how I’m doing. Doesn’t even check on how preps for baby are going. PS my dad is late so she’s my best only parent.
Anyone experiencing depression? I did a self assessment, and scored 2.5/5. Extreme fatigue, loss of joy and some level of loss of appetite ( not really experiencing prolonged sadness and trouble sleeping). If you are, are you seeking professional help? I’m 12 weeks pregnant. Had one serious depression episode during week 7, but has been getting better since. This week I feel like I’m getting back into the darkness again though. Is this gonna get better past trim1 or not really?
What’s in your hospital bag? I’m not sure why but I’m having a difficult time packing mine. Almost 37 weeks and need to finalize this thing!!!
Serious question- how on earth do first time parents pick out things for a registry? Like if you haven’t managed your own child, how do you know if you like this carrier or that? This lounger or that? Do people just trust their closest friend/advisor and mimic their decisions? I’ve spent so much time reading the diff bw strollers (which clearly is the hardest decision) - bloggers, Buying Guides, etc- and my head is going to explode 🤯. Gift cards it is 😆
Does the fatigue get better in seconf trimester?
Are you hiring a Doula for labor and delivery? First time mom and a little nervous about the process
Hi Mamas, what do you wear to work when your belly is showing? Where did you get them? Anything else that you recommend for working mamas? Thanks!
I had an amniocentesis performed at 16 weeks and found out today (19.5 weeks) that the chromosome analysis and microarray to test for microdeletions came back normal. Had they not come back normal, I would have aborted. I am distraught that others will not have this choice now that the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade.
Have anyone 35+ had successful pregnancies after one or more miscarriage(s)? I’m feeling defeated, don’t know if we should try again :(
Anyone have experience with slow rising HCG? Mine went from 41k to 58k over 4 days. My OB is concerned with those numbers. Curious if anyone else was similar.
Any partners here that can share how they handled maternity leave? I'm early in my pregnancy (~9 weeks) but starting to feel anxious / unethical about certain work-related things, like new business calls. I keep having the conversations - the outcome of which is clients expecting to have me as their advisor - knowing that I'll be at least mostly unavailable during the fall busy season. Is it unethical to have these calls and not be transparent? (Continued in comments)
Anyone here in EY USA and can point me to the maternity policy? I can only find Canadian or UK versions ok the policy site!
Not currently pregnant but hoping for some insight and advise. My husband and I are trying to get pregnant, but I’m really frustrated in my position and may start job hunting within 6-12 months. Hopefully I will be pregnant by then. Has anyone here experienced job hunting while pregnant or just post baby? I’m concerned about maternity leave and if I should just suck it up until I have a kid.
Pregnant and covid positive. Fever has broken but I'm now coughing up a very little blood with phlegm. Anyone go through something similar? Waiting for my ob to call me and let me know if I need to head to ER or wait this out.
Did anyone get a 4th COVID vaccine during pregnancy? I already have 3 from pre-pregnancy but I feel hesitant about the next booster since I’m pregnant. I’m due in Nov which is ultimate germ season so I can see why it would be good but equally I don’t feel as comfortable having it pregnant. I also caught COVID in June for the first time so 🤷🏽♀️
Recently laid off and job searching right before my due date. Kind of scared because I am on interview 6 with a company so I feel an offer is near but I’m not sure how to negotiate delaying my start date. Anyone been in this situation or pushed for a later start date between 4-6 weeks at minimum? The job is remote so that helps me.
Winter is coming! Are there any outerwear recommendations that grows with the tummy and can be used later with and without the baby?

Here for comments. Been up worried sick.
I don’t know if this going to help at all but I’ll try. My aunt took five years to get pregnant and this is the advice she gave me with dealing with pregnancy. She believes strongly that we can control a lot of what happens through our energy. And so with that she said that I should try as much as possible to have positive energy and not put any of my energy into worrying. It personally has helped a lot for me to have this mindset. At the end of the day, we are kind of out of control and it’s not worth worrying about an unknown
How far along are you? Did you get your first scan? If yes, you saw heartbeat?
Assuming it’s your first, the kicks and rolls are just about to start. May be your are already having some quickening but it takes time to realize that it’s the baby and not just some gas bubbles.
For me when the movements started, it was all the confirmation I needed everyday that things were okay.
Prozac helps me. I literally couldn’t survive the panic. I started it in week 10 and am now week 23. It took the edge off at first but now reached full efficacy and I actually don’t get to that point. I had my anatomy scan that I was waiting with bated breath for since finding out I was pregnant, and it’s 4 weeks til my next scan (so next week) and I’m literally 90% fine. Normally by 1 week after scan I was just like ‘baby is dead’. I even felt a lot of quickening for a week and then nothing for 2 weeks and didn’t get to that point of panic that I had prior. I’m just, with the help of Prozac, starting to realize that I am going to be anxious no matter what but so far everything has been okay each time so I just need to keep on keeping on.
It’s normal thoughts and feelings btw, but no reason to have to suffer to that level.
