Anyone work for Morgan & Morgan? Do you know if they allow you to work remotely/hybrid? I’d like to apply with them but the closest office is an hour away and I don’t want that commute. I have a young child.
Single women in STEM, do you have to field questions about being single during the holidays like I do? I'm 27, and every single Christmas my mother or grandmother ask me if I've "met any nice boys" and "when I'm planning to make time for a family." I get that they're coming from a good place, but I'd love for them to ask me about my work and how fulfilling that is instead. Tips for (kindly) getting family off your back?
First time pregnancy here (18 weeks only). Doctor told me usually baby kicks are very minor at around 20 weeks, but my baby moves around so much, especially after I drink tap water (cold but without ice). She can already wake me up during sleep. I'm scared she'll go even crazier in my third trimester. Anyone experienced crazy baby kicks in 2nd trimester? Anything wrong?
Can pregnant people take the sleep version of liquid IV? The hydration ones I know are fine but wasn’t sure about the sleepy ones..
What’s your favorite resource to find a new company if you’re a parent? WLB and fair salary are both paramount to me.
Moms, would you recommend international travel with 2-3 month old in early 2021 if the COVID situation improves? My family is not able to travel for delivery and I know I am being selfish, but I really want to spend part of my maternity leave with my parents and family. This will also be a chance to spend a month with them, which is super rare given we never get leaves that long! Anyone been this mad? Is it my 30 week hormones messing my brain?
I'm fairly new and today was the first time I had to assist a mother who came in to surrender her children, three kids all under the age of five years old... I did my best to remain professional but it was hard to see and be a part of. Has anyone else been in this situation?
Does anyone not feel comfortable leaving their kid alone with either parents or in laws due to their carelessness? How do deal with them constantly asking for your kid to sleep over at their house?
Dad's a little guidance please. We bought a Chicco car seat with base and a stroller that accepts the car seat. . I've been reading that other brands (e.g Britax, MaxiC) do not have a base and remain in the car. So how to Britax car seat parents move/carry their infants around? Remove from the car seat and hand carry or prop into stroller?
Currently, I put the baby into the car seat and he stays in it and is carried around in it. Trying to understand the process if I were to buy a Britax.
I am not from the US and taxes overwhelm me; the first few years I did them with TurboTax and it was fine but then I entered a domestic partnership and had a baby. I also bought a house (that I don’t live in), so I went to H&R Block to give it a try assuming they could advise me on optimizing my return, it seemed that they are completely transactional as the person is just typing numbers in a form. Any recommendations on how to navigate personal taxes with an actual advisor?
Sincere question from a non-parent:
I see so many issues constantly posted on this bowl…
Difficult to procure and EXTREMELY expensive child care; Relationship strain ; Career setbacks; Extreme worry about every developmental milestone; Issues related to postpartum recovery and body image issues

I’m pregnant and my employer allows me to take 16 weeks of maternity leave. If I take the extra 4 weeks (fmla is 12 weeks) do I still have the job protection that the fmla guarantees?
I'm a first time mom and trying to choose a baby monitor. Have people liked the Nanit camera? Or is it overpriced and should I just get an audio monitor and Wyze camera?
When I was a kid, I thought being a scientist would allow me to learn about the world. I didn't realize just how much paperwork there is.
Hi everyone, I’m a sixth year associate with a potential offer to go in house at a subsidiary tech company whose parent company is one of the largest tech companies in the world. I want to be prepared to negotiate my salary and I was wondering if anyone has advice. I make $130k now at a boutique firm specializing in business and chapter 11 bankruptcies. I want to ask for $160k because based on my market research, that seems to be reasonable. Does this sound like too much or too little?
Anyone else juggling having kids at home during the winter break and trying to work from home around your SO (who is also working from home). The holidays are always SO hectic at my place and I'm feeling like a failure, my mother was a perfect housewife and I'm far from it lol. Other parents struggling with this?

I’m thinking of going back to school to get my FNP, but I’ve only been in the OR ever since I graduated, is it still possible to do so? Again, patient interaction is pretty limited in the OR.

I wanted to know if in Google India offices, do people get to work on projects like Machine learning/ Deep learning in Healthcare? Like for example Dr. Lily Peng is working as a Product manager for Diabetic Retinopathy diagnosis with ML.
If anyone from Google can throw some light on this, that would be really helpful.

Can anyone explain to me the order of progression of Rolex watches? Cheapest to more expensive. How does presidential compare to the date just vs the day date etc. I want a gold Rolex with a black dial and trying to understand my options.
Can I use fruit candy as a pre-workout and on-foot refueling source for ultra running? I get the same boost of energy with a handful of Mike & Ikes as I do on a Gu gel, but it's a lot more affordable to use candy than a Power Gel, and the flavor is a lot more palatable in my opinion. My stomach prefers this approach too. Am I missing race-critical nutrients by doing this, or is it essentially similar with other gel fuels? Thoughts?

To push off or not? TTC for 3 years, 1 year with RET. Just had a failed IVF transfer and my mental health and spouses mental health are in tough spot. His parents are “temporarily” living with us and MIL has severe Alzheimer’s. All of this is straining our marriage badly. I’m torn between pushing through another round of IVF given it’s been SO long - or whether there’s just way too much going on and we need to get our house in order. Is there a right time for IVF?

Give me your best vitamins and supplements for improving egg count and quality. I’m “advanced” (39) with no kids, did egg freezing a few years ago with a pretty low count, and want to try again.
I know you’re not doctors but I think this collective community has so much knowledge. I am already taking iron, fish oil, and D3.
Has anyone used WINFertility? According to Accenture health insurance literature we are required to go through them for all fertility related matters. What was your experience? Helpful?
Husband and I have been on a long journey TTC, and haven’t been on a vacation since September, just before we found out about our second trimester loss. Now, he doesn’t want to plan any trips so we can save $ for IVF - planned retrieval in late March. Would you recommend we do *something* to get out of town, or will I want to hunker down as I go through retrieval(s) and transfer? It’s been a long, sad slog.
Are any of you not ttc but track your cycles using the symptothermal method? I’m 24 and have been doing this for 2 years as birth control but looking forward to the time I can reverse and use the insights to help me conceive.

Although I still have cramping but the breast soreness has reduced a bit.

Those who have had no luck with children. How did you move on? Is there life after this bc I dont see it :( And social media is not helping but even getting off of those it's not like it's not happening still. Everyone is still happy all day with their kids and gloating about and hate that people probably feel sorry for me. I dont want the pity.
I had an early miscarriage (week 4.5) after a FET with a PGT embryo (medicated cycle).
My doctor wants to move right away to a test cycle (w/ the objective of doing a biopsy and various tests), to be followed by doing the second FET cycle.
Is this too soon? Should I wait a month for my HCG levels to be normal again and to give my body some rest?
Hi all! I was wondering if anyone has any doctor/clinic recommendations for egg freezing in nyc? Been looking at extend, nyu, Cornell, Columbia, kofinas, etc.
Does a great doctor and lots of physician interaction matter that much for egg freezing? I know it matters for IVF but curious if that weighs as heavily for the egg freezing process as well. The larger clinics I’ve talked to (nyu, CCRM, etc) seems to have less interaction with the doctor and are costlier while smaller places cont…
