Looking for suggestions on professional maternity clothes. Also any tips on must have clothes in general. My belly is starting to expand and things are getting a little uncomfortable.
Finally went back to the office today and went to lunch with a couple colleagues with a client we are working to retain after the relationship partner retired. Great lunch, great conversation. As we were wrapping up client asked me about my due date (I am very obviously pregnant), so I let him know - Sept. 26. He proceeded to let me know he knew I had some fun at New Year’s… like what? Can we not? I just laughed it off bc how else do you respond in front of colleagues and a client? Blech.

Not sure how I feel about this. "The ad’s critics generally cited one of two complaints: that it insensitively conveyed an image that might be associated with children being hit by cars, or that it sexualized a child."
Any recommendations on family-based immigration lawyer for consultation? Had filed i-130 for mom in February of last year, which was subsequently approved and she has been documentarily qualified for months after we completed the other forms. Problem is that she has been waiting to be invited to the US consulate (in India) for months and with the current backlog it looks like it may take another 12 to 16 months before the happens. I’m pregnant and need my mom to be with me sooner. Contd.
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?
Ever since we had our first child, I have come to realize that I’ve been in an abusive relationship. She verbally abuses me and there were also times where I was physically hurt. Her reactions and emotions are so extreme, she estranged me several times and for several months for the smallest disagreements. I’m thinking to file for a divorce but really feel like giving it sometime to heal over the damage first and then figure out the logistics.
Any moms have the Caraa baby bag? FTM here and debating between the large vs medium. Large seems pretty big but not sure what to expect with first baby and how much I will need to lug! Just wanted to see if there were any opinions!
Any foster moms out there? I’m curious if companies provide parental leave to support new fostering relationships? Have your companies been supportive of the time commitment during work hours?
My 6 month old has cow milk protein intolerance. Trying to switch to formula Need help picking an option A. Goat milk based (EU brands) B. Traditional hypoallergenic US brands - Emfamil sorts C. Holle hypoallergenic (EU brands - that promise organic and better quality ingredients) Goes without saying EU brands are expensive. But willing to pay if the ingredients are really better for my child Did any other mummas go through a similar journey. What did you pick and why?

Anyone come back from maternity leave during busy season? I come back early February and worried about getting no sleep between working and baby. My baby currently doesn’t go to sleep without a lot of rocking/nursing, etc and this is usually around 10PM. My 2yo is asleep by 8PM, so I used to just start working at that point.

Curious 🤔 . Has any bank implemented any policies yet on the transgender bathroom issue? Given the "diversity" of the industry's hiring practices this may actually become an issue in 2060.
Salary expectations. I was rated a 3, I will be going from senior 1 to 2. I make 80K, JD and LLM. I am in the Midwest, not Chicago. What is a not slap in the face raise?
I currently work at a big start up and made a lateral move to another team a few months ago with five years experience. Since then , I’ve created a whole new service line and took over many of my managers duties. As I took a paycut to join this team - I’m pushing for a raise and title change. Is this reasonable?
Disclaimer - not a typical post for this bowl. Wanted to understand more about the mental health services at Google (I already read the high level info on the onboarding portal). I’m starting soon and wanted to ask what Googlers thought of the available resources. My mental health has taken a hit since fall ‘20 - I tried wellness programs through my current employer (counseling and mindfulness) but felt that the providers were more into utilization of the benefit than trying to solve my issues.

How much of a promotion can I expect A to SA?
Being on F1/ H1b visa is it ok to work from a location over 50 miles from office, temporarily approx 2 months without filing LCA.
In my spring review, I was told a central reason that I’m not yet ready for promotion centered around my need to develop more influence internally. Has anyone else, particularly women, received feedback like this? NB:I’ve been in a managerial role for several years at multiple agencies - and in current role, have been working significant overtime to tackle ad hoc projects, volunteering with ERG groups to lead and coach sessions, active participant/planner for social events, etc. since I joined
I recently accepted an offer at Wayfair start date 3/15. As soon as I accepted a dream job has now come up that is fully remote and is more inline with what I want to do (tech). What do I do? Should I push out my start date at Wayfair or do I just start with them on 3/15 and see if I get an offer at the tech company?

I got an offer: 140K & no bonus for the Manager, Architect (Remote - Medium COL) in Audit (Not Consulting). Looks like that is the best they could do.
