I like my friends kids a lot but I’m not sure I’ll ever want my own. I’d love to just be an auntie. Except my SO wants them. Pretty sure there’s a pending hard convo. How did you know you didn’t? Besides those who always knew…
Be gentle 😔
Do you have kids?
If so, Did you know you wanted them?
Child free perspectives also welcome
I'm very seriously considering going back to school, specifically for nursing. Are there any adult learners here that can tell me about how to afford school, living expenses and child care? I'm starting to get discouraged at the thought this may not even be a possibility.
Any advice on setting and keeping boundaries? As I’m nearing the end of maternity leave, I’m realizing that I am going to need to be much, much better about protecting my time. I’m also realizing that I could have set reasonable boundaries years ago, but I didn’t think I could at the time. I think the first step is to not take on every deal that is offered to me when I return, but I would love advice on how to not feel guilty (or perspective from your return).
I have 2 offers in hand 1 from tcs of 15 LPA and another from Optum of 18 LPA. Point is i have a small 8 month old kid. Due to this, i need a job which will be less hectic so that i can take care of her( i dont want to leave her to maid). So which will be a better option fr me.
Current hh income of about 350k no debt. About to have a baby, and our hh income could go down to 220k if SO does not return to work. Most likely will, but we will not know 100% until we have our first, and could be PT.
Could we afford a monthly payment of $8k? Based on our current income, we can. However, there’s some concern after the baby. This would be a 10 year house, so assume it will be easier to afford over the course of living there.
Any recommendations for a robot litter box? I’m pregnant and my husband has proven himself to have very different litter box standards than I (and our 2 cats) do! Thanks!

Is anyone here 1 and done? I have one child and I always thought I would want more but I don't. I don't feel like I was "born to be a mom". I love my child but it's not as fulfilling as expected.

Had 2 friends announce pregnancy recently, due in Sep and Nov. I can't stop thinking of my baby that I miscarried. I would've been due Oct. 😔 I could've been celebrating with them...
All the male juniors/SAs going on paternity leave and coming back with work waiting for them is making me jealous and I want to have a kid soon (I’m third yr) but also freaking defeated by the fact that women don’t get the same treatment when they have kids

Consulting moms. My son is 20 months old. I’m thinking of planning for a 2nd. What is a good age gap between siblings? I’m 33 and when I was pregnant with my son, I was nauseous the entire pregnancy! It was horrible, but now with WFH, I’m considering getting pregnant so I can deal with the symptoms from home. Thoughts on my approach? I’m nervous about COVID, but there’s no clear end in sight. I also don’t know how long it will take to get pregnant.
Feeling really nervous, help! I’ve been using topical hydroquinone 4% since before I found out I was pregnant. Now reading the label I realise that it’s not advised and a category C by the FDA - I’m 6 weeks pregnant and have obviously stopped now but really scared I might have caused serious harm to my baby.
Have any of you used this while pregnant and it turned out fine? Any other insights that can give me some peace of mind? 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Advice needed! I have been hustling for months. My partner and I have been offered two good freelance jobs (1-2 months). Both from agencies that we’ve been going back and forth with about other opportunities that fell through.
Both are going to take a couple of days to confirm. Do I say yes to both for now until one confirms? I am not trying to play them off against each other. I just don’t want to refuse one and be left with nothing. What is the normal protocol to avoid burning bridges?

Crazy scenario. Wife and I fell in love with house 1 but it needed too much work so we backed out. Months later we bought house 2 in the same neighborhood and are set to close in a week. House 1 just came back on the market and apparently a lot of remodeling is being done (paid by insurance because a boiler broke + water damage). I reached out to seller’s agent to make a deal (we buy house 1 through him while he sells house 2). Anything I should keep in mind moving forward? Advice?
How long do recruiters wait to submit candidates for in-house roles? I recently had a positive conversation with a recruiter for a very newly posted role. I sent my resume and the recruiter said he would be in touch, but I’m not clear if my resume was submitted or if he’s waiting to find other potential candidates as well. How long should I wait to follow up after I sent my resume? TIA
