Is it normal to not connect with your AD? I’m a woman who works for another woman who has no interest in developing a working relationship though I’ve tried.

The second part didn’t change anything, but so unbelievable.

I have a manager who doesn’t seem to like me very much. Talks to me in a super condescending tone like I wasn’t an experienced hire & know what I’m doing. He will flat out ignore me even on calls when I say hi or good morning.
I’m not sure if it’s because he’s “old school” but once had other team mates in his office (all male) for lunch and didn’t invite me (the only female on this team). I thought I had a super progressive team but every day is telling me that’s not the case.

Hi friends here… how long would you wait between FET cycles? I had a miscarriage (a few weeks only) in May from the FET, and my doctor said I could start a new FET cycle now that I have my period. I’ve been on Thyroid meds but they don’t monitor my TSH (unless I ask it to be checked). The doctor says no need to wait unless I want a mental break. I don’t need a mental break but wonder if I’m rushing when my body is not ready. Just confused… thanks all!
