Does anyone have any recommendations for 3rd trimester insomnia? My entire pregnancy I slept like a baby lamb and now I wake up at 3-3:30am every day! And can’t fall back asleep until 5/6 am
Any thoughts on the best way to educate a smart kid with ADHD? My kindergartner is currently in a small Montessori school, and it is not going well. We're thinking of switching to public school because there's a wider variety of resources but we're concerned about the large class sizes.
So, apparently my school has the lowest teacher attendance this year. As teachers- what would be a good incentive to get perfect attendance and not use your PTO?
Knowing I can post this here gives me hope, so firstly thank you all for this platform. I am newly pregnant for the first time and have had crazy pain, everything is fine. Finally on my third ER visit this week, I said “why don’t we see if it’s not a pregnancy thing”. I have kidney stones and need to be on bed rest until they pass. I’m only 5 weeks and at my in-person industry job for 2 months. I’m also in middle of interviews at boutique firms. What am I supposed to do?!
Ladies with no kids, please pick one. (Like the comment that resonates with you the most) 1) You genuinely see yourself as a future mother who wants to raise a baby or two and have a family of more than just you and your spouse 2) You just want kids because you feel like you'll be missing out/regret it later 3) You don't want kids
20 wks pregnant & had a normal anatomy scan, however can't shake the constant paranoia of something being wrong (clouded by three prior miscarriages, even though I've had one normal pregnancy). Any tricks? Right now I can't stop overanalyzing baby flutters and whether it's stopped moving, even though I know it's too early to be monitoring this. Need reassurance :(
What to do for a spouse who is struggling emotionally but refuses to get professional help? I’m 17 weeks pregnant with our first. My husband is really struggling with emotional/ mental health. I’ve asked him to consider counseling or other medical alternatives. Instead, he wants to talk to me until 11:30 pm or 12 am at night. I want to be there for him but I can’t. I’m tired. I’m still working VERY full time, and I was just diagnosed with early onset preeclampsia 😫
What is the literal biggest problem in your life right now? Indulge my curiosity please.
I go on maternity leave soon, and my firm offers 16 weeks paid leave, which I plan to fully take advantage of. The only female shareholder in our office keeps pushing me to only take 6 weeks though, because that's what she did. I feel really put off by her comments, but its also making me feel guilty about taking the full time. This is mostly a vent, but if anyone wants to give me some words of wisdom or thoughts, I will take them!
Fish: I know someone at another firm who has been ridiculed based on their perceived economic past as a child. Firm Leadership has circulated a suggestive photo with a demeaning caption with... CONT.
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/05/technology/parents-time-off-backlash.html As a non-parent, I get why it’s important to provide some accommodations to workers with parents and am in full support of parental benefits. The employees complaining about this seem to be entitled and spoiled. What is the bowl’s take on this article?
🐠 who have kids late (maybe after 35?), are you worried that your teenage kids might be embarrassed by how old you are? Other moms/dads are in their 30s, nice looking and cool, but we are in our late 40s even 50s.
Any tips for convincing a baby to crawl before walking? Our 6mo keeps trying to push to stand, and her version of a crawl right now is to push up to her feet and frog hop forwards, but the doc said she needs to crawl first for proper hip development
Any tips on rescuing a cat or choosing a new fur baby that you know you'll get along with?
It's been a week of Hcg blood test after I was spotting. First draw hcg level was 139, and subsequent two draws, its plateau to 100. OB says its ectopic and I'll to come in to get methotrexate administered. I'm sad, scared and worried. Anyone know what to expect after taking methotrexate? How soon after can one try again? Also now so worried about our chances of getting pregnant again.
Does a humidifier work for helping baby’s cough? Our son has a cough/cold that he just can’t shake. Doctor says it’s nothing serious, but would a humidifier keep him more comfortable at night?
Who’s pregnant and gotten COVID? Did it impact the baby? ….Or who has gotten COVID vaccine while pregnant? When did you get vaccinated during your pregnancy?
As if this year of infertility wasn’t frustrating enough, I just tested positive for Covid and I have symptoms even though I was vaxxed/booster. I’m told I can test positive for up to three months. I just finished my fertile window and we plan to go for IVF in the new year..any recs on how to handle this? Also in the extremely rare chance I was able to get pregnant naturally this time is there any harm?
I’m compiling a list of mini red flags in relationships: 1) Men who “just don’t like Hillary Clinton”, 2) Elon Musk fan-boys, 3) Men who have an opinion on your choice of birth control. What are yours?

Beyond 2 lines the text in each post card is cut off. I wonder how many lines in the comment section?
End of Deloitte Tenure: May 31st. 97% utilization, good year end review presumably. Time to find a position asap so I can get paid double. Stay strong everyone. I will.
This transgender bathroom issue has gotten out of hand. Deloitte homepage shows an article titled "Supporting our Inclusive Culture". Deloitte should allow it's employees to decide their own stance.
Lmao you would be surprised how many people recall passive aggressive treatment “per my last email” , “as discussed” , etc
Went on a date with a Goldman banker: she said that we'd not be a good fit because I don't work at McKinsey, so I would be insecure about my company in relation to hers. What????
Just got promoted to Consultant after 2+ years, 9% base salary adjustment + 1.5% bonus. Does that sound right?
Instead of showering this morning booked an earlier flight so I can get ready in hotel.. United Maintenance delays at least an hour 😒
Just made the move from KPMG's advisory risk practice to Deloitte's cyber risk practice. Largest and most established within the big 4. What do y'all think? Received a good pay bump as well.
Currently awaiting my written offer from KPMG. Was told that they can’t give my written offer until my background check clears per new NY state law. Anyone recently get hired that went through this? How long did you wait for the background check to clear?
I miss when FB was only about our shitty first world consulting problems and not all this politically correct stuff.
