Asking for a friend. At what stage during the process of moving jobs did you reveal to your potential employer that you were pregnant? My friend is 4 months pregnant (not showing) and has her first zoom call interview tomorrow. Should she reveal her pregnancy from the get go? Or wait till the second round of interview? Or when she ends up getting the offer letter? Her current place of work has a three month notice period and the law in her country gives her a three month maternal leave.

Is 210 enough to live an upper middle class life in Dallas? Not trying to come off as shallow just genuinely trying to understand. Have a $300K offer in NJ and $210k offer in Dallas (single income, small family) and want to make sure I’m able to give my family a great life. Dallas seems like amazing place to raise a kid, but it’s also not as cheap as everyone seems to think. The houses we want are $650-$700K range. Insight appreciated

Hey Folks - Any one use their FSA $ towards a dietitian or nutritionist? If so, could you share your experiences? I'm considering Working Against Gravity but I don't think we can use our FSA. It also appears 'nutritionist' is unregulated and a Letter of Medical Necessity (LMN) is needed for the expense of a nutritionist's services.

How do our firms view consultants and managers getting pregnant or just having young children in general? Is it a death sentence for future staffing opportunities? Conversely, would it mitigate the risk of layoff due to covid considering the optics / laws around woman’s pregnancy rights in the workplace? Honestly just curious.

Have you ever worked with a partner that points out every error you make (regardless if it’s nothing or a bigger error) but never points out anything good you do or says thank you? How do you not let it slowly chip away at your confidence and self-worth? I try to let it roll off my back, but it does ultimately affect me and my enjoyment of my job.
