I started a new job last month and had the anatomy scan this Wednesday which said everything is good. I am eligible for all the maternity benefits. I want to let my manager know but struggling to articulate it. I want to be confident and acknowledge it's an inconvenience but don't want to sound apologetic. Would really appreciate your help here

Having a kid. Is it still ok to bring them up with gender stereotypes? I mean, clearly I want them to do any job they aspire to, but will I be a bad parent if I dress the girl up in pink and boy blue?
My husband has a strong sense of duty towards his parents - I’ve been very encouraging of it - making sure he has the freedom to be there for his family and parents in whatever way they need or want (e.g. sleeping over at his parents at least 2 nights, attending family events, making sure he goes to all their doc appts, maintaining a relationship with his sisters and their children, etc). His family and I are not from similar backgrounds so we have our struggles so I keep a distance (more below)

PwC parental leave benefits?
Trying to figure out whom to leave assets to. I have a young child from a previous marriage. I remarried and current hubby and I are expecting his first baby. I don’t trust my older child’s father to use money for her responsibly. I would be leaving retirement and brokerage accounts and life insurance. I trust my mom 100%, so I am thinking of leaving the money to my mom for my daughter’s benefit. Should I talk to a professional? What are some considerations? Thanks!
Going back to work in a couple of weeks and will be working from home. My mum is available to watch the baby till 2.30pm. Do you think i can handle working and watching the baby till end of day?.

I am interviewing with a Series C startup, tech, launched 4 years ago in Europe and is now building out a team to GTM in the US. I currently work with enterprise clients in supply chain/tech, avg deal size is over 500k. Avg deal size for this start-up is less than half of that. All that to say - the last step in the process is to “present” to a panel as mock customers. Am I wrong for thinking this is antiquated and a waste of my time? Role playing with a candidate of my experience?
If you got hired at the absolute bottom of the payband, I gave my salary expectations which was unknowingly less than my offer a few months back, is it possible to renegotiate a raise to at least the middle of the payband, come the performance review, raises, and bonus meeting, especially given inflation? In addition my firm’s new base payband for my position as an external higher is posted at 31% higher than my current salary.
