Hi ladies! Has anyone had Invisalign while they were pregnant? I'm thinking of getting Invisalign, but also might start a family in the next few months. Wondering if pregnancy (if it happens!) + Invisalign may be too much to handle? TIA!
Have there been any efforts to clean up the homeless encampments around Dupont Circle? I live in NoVa and last time I was there a man yelled obscenities at me and then urinated on the street. I'd like to take my mother to the farmers market while she visits but that kind of environment isn't going to work for her.
Do any of you feel like your parents treat you differently or take advantage of you after you started making a Biglaw salary? This has been my experience. The amount of times I’ve heard “you make a lot of money, you can afford _____ / should do ____with your money” is frustrating. They also broke something in my apartment and didn’t even offer to replace it (I wouldn’t have made them, but an offer would be nice).
Still not pregnant after six months timed intercourse. I am 34 so OB keeps saying we should keep trying until 12 months. What would you do? Insist OB give me testing / tell them I am not willing to keep waiting? Go direct to a fertility specialist? Go see primary care physician for full panel bloodwork, thyroid check, etc? Husband is going for sperm testing
Looking for stroller recommendation! Our 1st child will arrive in December. Currently lean towards a travel system. Another factor to consider is that we plan to have another child after year or two and would prefer to get one that could convert into a double stroller.
I just got back from maternity leave last week and have a meeting with hr/partner tomorrow. Am I being let go?
Probably not the best place for this but does anyone feel like they’re a stronger teacher for their students than their actual children? My son is struggling so much academically and sometimes I feel like I don’t even know where to start to support him. I found that being “teacher-parent” at home was causing so much stress between us both so I’ve stepped back and I just don’t know how to find the balance. Hoping that I’m not alone in this.
Some companies like Morgan Stanley are starting to require that their employees be vaccinated to come back to the office. Where do you stand on this - should your employer be able to require vaccination? Personally, I think they should be able to, but curious to hear your thoughts. ￼ Is your company requiring vaccination?
For all those lucky enough to have a dog child 🐶😭🥰. Loving & taking care of them makes you a better hooman. Don’t forget, you are their world; they would be so scared & sad without you. Don’t give up
What is typical when it comes to a husband supporting his wife dealing with a loss of her parent? I definitely feel let down by my husband, but trying to gauge if I am not thinking straight
I regret not having done my MBA from an IVY League B school. I have seen industry and HR professionals being biased towards people from IIMs and so on. While I am currently doing decently well, I can't help feel bad for experiencing the bias in terms of promotions and CTC. Even the new/baby IIMs (some of which I have left to join my B school) are now given more importance. How can I offset this bias?
True or False: Teachers don't quit because of the kids. They quit because of the adults.
24M found the girl of my dreams (goals faith mindset motivation are all aligned) we want to get married keep things halal do the nikkah but her parents saying it’ll look bad because her older sister isn’t married, they just moved to America recently and haven’t gotten financially stable, and that she’s still in school (starting 3rd year).

Ladies how would you feel if your bf/husband is making half or less than half your salary. Am not yet in a relationship and the guy I just met seems nice but when I learnt about his salary it was a major turnoff for me. He does not have a professional career like I do. It would be helpful to know your perspectives so that I know how to proceed and what considerations I need to have

Hey all! New kid here. I'd love to network with as many people in UX Design as possible as I transition from my marketing career to designing!
Do you get annoyed by people who say & think they are poor but aren’t? My husband’s dad always complains about money & being poor yet was making over 6 figures, retired, had a stay at home wife, multiple kids, and splurges on new cars or vacations. This makes my hubs think they grew up poor when they didn’t. In turn my family actually was poor and we were immigrants so it’s hard to hear being poor off over 6 figures when my parents never made close to that.
