I went out to work and my husband had packed up some of his stuff and left without leaving a note. I was able to get in touch with him and know where he is and that he wants to take a break. I was in care as a child and I dont have parents to speak to, and my friends have to go to sleep at some point. What are the first things I need to do to keep safe and are reasonable? He isn't violent and the joint account has nothing in it.
Our nanny doesn’t start full time with us for another month. Until then, she has agreed to care for our 2 month old and her current family’s 10 month old together, at her current family’s home. Taking care of our baby has been so exhausting for both my husband and me together and I am wondering how will the nanny be able to care for two babies at once. What do you mammas think? I can always extend my mat leave
"So just like they say to look to the mother before choosing a wife, take a peek at your bosses to see what the future holds for you" LOL
Just needed to vent. Me: I’m so tired since baby’s been going through a sleep regression lately. It’d be great if you could watch her most of tomorrow so I can get a break
Does anyone have recommendations for a good maternity /nursing bra for larger boobs? I was a 30C before pregnancy and now I’m a 32G(!!) and no bra I try can hold these babies up😩 TIA!
Currently 3 months pregnant and have been unemployed for 2 months. Just got 2 job offers, should I let the recruiters know I’m pregnant before accepting an offer?
Have you dated a man with a child? What are healthy boundaries between your S/O and the mother of his baby? I want to be understanding but a part of me knows that there will always be something “more”
Which firms have the best maternity/paternity packages? Do any cover some of the cost of surrogacy? I have a medical condition that would make actually carrying a child dangerous, so wondering if some firms offer help in that area (I’ve heard of some covering IVF costs).
My brother has been offered at Punjab National Bank as a Manager in Chennai. He has been told that he must have a car on his name to claim petrol allowance. Is this true? Car is currently on father’s name. Does this mean car needs to be transferred to son’s name? Can someone from PNB please confirm this?
Has anyone gotten the COVID vaccine while pregnant? If so, care to share your experience? Currently debating whether to get it (I’m 21 weeks) or wait till after birth…
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.
Passed BEC! Three down one more to go baby 💋
Anyone dealt with your sibling getting divorced and the SIL fallout? My brother is going though a divorce and it is ugly. She is saying he is “unfit” (he is not). He has a 32 yr old who I am very close to, and a 12 yr old who is my goddaughter. His ex was my bff and now she says he is an unfit father and trying to take away his parental rights. I am stunned. It has fractured us beyond what I thought possible. Do I stay neutral for the nieces? Do I shout at the top of my lungs he is a good guy?
Just got an offer at ACN as a Strategy Manager and HR made it clear that parental leave was 2 weeks fully paid for men. Theoretically up until 12 weeks is covered by NY State ($900 weekly). What would you do? Have you seen men take a few months off for parental leave in consulting even if unpaid?
A little embarrassing but F it! After 2 babies back to back please recommend some spandex-y or super control top panties to help with the fupa. My 2021 goal is to lose the baby weight (30 lbs) but I’m afraid the skin is so stretched out it will still be there. Tummy tuck/lipo is in the works—trust! And please don’t feed me any of those, you brought life into the world BS lines. Panty suggestions please (or solidarity to lmk I’m not alone standing in the mirror naked thinking WTF)!
I don’t like dogs. Don’t find them cute, they smell horrible, and how do people let them lick their faces?! Ewww
What is the maternity policy in Big4? In EY we need to work for at least an year and we get 16 weeks paid parental leave+ 2 weeks short term disability leave.
Now that tips + gov fees are baked into Uber/Lyft/Food delivery apps, I’ve become much healthier and learned to cook this year! Bless all of you still in consulting who get more points cause of this though.
What happens now if anyone gets laid off? Trump.will.ptobably assess h1b shortly . Go back to our country am guessing?

My Global Entry appointment/interview was cancelled due to the government shutdown. My status expires in January... sigh.
Hi everybody, need advice. I have too many rewards points and am also too successful and attractive. What should I do, do you think? Serious problems here.
I feel like most FAANG companies exist solely to sell our information - surprised that so many of you would want to work for one of these places....
Interviewed with a non-F500 for their CorpDev team. Received the offer letter but it says "Business Development" instead. Should I be concerned? Or are these terms generally used interchangeably in the industry?

When I interviewed for Accenture I didn't have a case study question. I was wondering if anyone else had the same experience?
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.
