I am very early in pregnancy and working at a startup. We’ll either get Series B funding between now and my due date or we’ll fail. It could go either way and I’m honestly not sure what’s more likely. I’m invested in this company but worried about the risk of losing my job just before having a baby. Anyone have any advice? I’m really stressed about it and am not sure what to do.
Go on paternity leave now or stay on Long-Term project? Since we’ll be wfh now for the foreseeable future anyway not sure if I should still take the leave.
Hey lovelies 💚 just found this bowl & am stoked! Ive been a plant parent for ~3yrs, and would love to share a plant of mine each day or week if that’s not too annoying 😅 Plant 1: Monstera Deliciosa
I am starting to be really considered with my stomach bloating. It’s like I am pregnant. I started back on pills due to ovarian cysts (not diagnosed with pcos) and I’ve gained weight but it’s not terrible. However, my stomach is ridiculously bloated especially two weeks prior to my period! What do I do?!

Anyone else ever get a feeling of homesickness even when you’re at home? It’s this strange feeling like you’re being exposed and just want to hide. It’s a fleeting feeling that only last like 5-10 seconds. I’ve experienced it since I was a child and thought it was normal but now I’m wondering if it’s related to anxiety or something else.

During the panny, my agency moved a handful of us to a different office with no choice. Basically said we’d be fired if we didn’t comply. When we asked if we would ever have to move to the new city, we were given no answers for months. Now, they’re saying back to office in September and I have a feeling they’ll be expecting us to move. Should I ask for money to move? I personally can’t afford to and told them from the start I can’t move. Also, I really don’t want to leave my S/O. Help!

Geniuses can you please share some ideas/creative ways to track the following.. Case: have around 25 companies and associated info. Part of that info includes company contact point info (name, email) each company may have 1-8 contacts. Contacts change frequently. Ideally I’d like my columns to be |comp name | contact name| contact email |etc, but the issue is I need to track when people leave a company, can’t delete the data. Rn I have 1 sheet holding comp info, another, contact info.
