Earlier this week I was so busy I only pumped three times when I normally pump 6 times. Since then my milk supply fell drastically where I only pump 2 oz each session even if I pump 30 minutes when before I’d be pumping 3.5-5 oz in 15, and it’s been 4 days already. I know it’s silly but I feel sad thinking I won’t be able to feed my baby sufficiently with breastmilk anymore. I’ll supplement but I felt happy being able to provide full breastmilk before and feel a sense of loss now. Just venting
My lovely wife got me a bottle of Talisker 18 for my first Father’s Day. I’ve always loved the 10 year, but first impressions of the 18 are superb.
Hey mommas - My baby is 14 weeks old and I haven't gotten my period back yet. I'm worried I'm pregnant again. When did you get your period back? For context, I'm breastfeeding but not exclusively (I am pumping and nursing as much as I can though). I've been on the pill since 6 weeks and my husband used condoms for the first few weeks once we started again. Surprisingly, I can't find anything online that's helpful. Any sense of a timeframe would be tremendously anxiety-reducing!
One kid or two kids? And why?
I had a parent repeatedly shit talk me all over a school FB group, claiming I “hadn’t been doing anything for all of distance learning.” ... I had about 10 video lessons + daily (con’t in comment)
I’m starting my 2nd trimester and want to tell work I’m pregnant next month, but I’m concerned that I won’t get staffed on matters and then have little work to return to. Is there a good balance?
I hope this helps a baby fish.
Parents, what are you doing for college funds? I want to start saving for my kid and don't know where to start. Do you recommend a bank over the others for this matter?
Anyone had surgery to remove fibroids through laparotomy (abdominal cut) and was able to successfully get pregnant with IVF after? Did you do egg retrieval prior to or after the surgery? I’m 33 and my eggs don’t get any younger. Doctor said earliest I could get pregnant is 6 months post-op. Would prefer to do a retrieval round prior to surgery in Nov, would this make sense at all? Thank you 🙏
Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.
Any predictions for future travel requirements for AlixPartners post covid? I'm thinking of applying to AP but the rumors of intense travel have me hesitating now that I have 2nd child on the way.
Taking out a female friend and her one year old baby for brunch. Maybe this is a silly question, but do I ask the restaurant for a high chair for the kid? Or does the kid stay in the stroller while we eat? Clearly I’m a clueless friend here!
Just so much happiness and I need space to gush. My boyfriend is the most amazing man I’ve ever met. He makes me feel safe and loved and is absolutely crazy about me. We see each other a couple of times a week and it’s always super fun and peaceful and the sex and emotional connection is perfect. I’m so lucky to have met him in nyc and he tells me he feels lucky too. We’re discussing our future and having 3 kids together and I can’t wait to call him my husband and father of our gorgeous children
Mamas, have you asked for a roll off or less responsibilities on your current project due to pregnancy symptoms like morning sickness? My client is so critical and demanding it’s caused me to have stress hives and panic attacks. I don’t think I can do my role well pregnant and don’t want the stress to cause the baby harm.
Wish I were a baby right now. I'm tired and hungry and it would be so nice to take a nap and then cry until someone feeds me.
I’m thinking of quitting breastfeeding. My baby is 5 months old, and my pump just broke, and I don’t think she’s eating enough and she wakes up all the time at night hungry. I’m just tired of it. I’d rather just give her bottles and call it a day. Ready for my husband to take the night feeds, ready to be able to have a drink without worrying about when I have to feed the baby. The actual breastfeeding has been easy, which is why I feel guilty for “quitting.”
Best examples of ramp back programs from parental leave? I get to choose my own adventure and am curious what’s worked well for others. Minimum hours required hasn’t been stipulated. Thanks!
First day back on the job after paternity leave. Never had a harder time leaving the house than this morning...
This may not be the right time but can the leader of this bowl set up a zoom meeting where the African immigrant and African American can have an open and honest panel discussion in a respectful way? Apparently there is a lot of differences and misunderstanding between us and this could be a step forward. We are all black and have to come together and have one voice. Let's fix each other instead of fighting each other. Let me know your thoughts.

Has anyone hacked the hirevue interview algorithm? I'm about to do one for a lateral role.
￼I am currently unemployed but I am very curious about everyone’s company signature having she/her or he/him or they displayed. Are companies forcing people to write the pronouns you need to choose? I honestly never understood why somebody that wasn’t in the LGBTQ community would ￼specify￼￼, and I know people are doing it to show support but if I started working again I don’t think I would want to put that in my signature. It seems political. What are your thoughts? ￼
I have attended TCS interview on 19th till now I have not received any email or feedback about my interview. How many days will they take to provide the feedback??

Exit options after 6 months in ZS? DAA here. WLB has landed me in hospital twice and my client seems to only care that in my absense, work gets delayed. Also, please recommend any skills one should/can learn on weekends to enhance selection.
Hello cyber team! Can anyone help suggesting sys integrator/implementation firms that are focussed primarily on cloud and devsecops? Also do they match big 4 salaries to some extent? Tia!
I’m tired. I love wfh. But balancing it with cooking, cleaning, teacher, parent, caretaker - I’m drained. I want to sleep and wake up when it’s all over
Met with my boss today and was told “well you’re way better at your job than we expected...so keep doing that and just that. We might be able to have some more interesting work for you to do in 2-3 years”. Meanwhile...I am BORED TO TEARS!!!!!! And it’s tempting to quit, but I make more money than both of my parents combined EVER have, we had zero layoffs during COVID, and I really do love the people. At the end of the day...I guess I’m just hear to vent and to see if I’m the ONLY one.
Could anyone share some insight on compensation for manager roles in financial reporting and/or technical accounting? Curious to see what people have jumped for when they left PA for these types of jobs.
