Family planning and thinking about jumping for a local company. Only thing I'm afraid to lose is D's great parental leave. Was it really that impactful for you all?

Attending work events while on leave: Hey 🐠 - is there a consensus on whether or not to attend events like the office holiday party while on a LOA like Parental leave? Is it weird?
My father always talks about how he hit a ceiling in not being able to be the top dog at his company because he doesn't have a phd. The guy above him is world-renowed based on what he's researched and published. I believe my dad could have made it if he'd done more outside work, but he says the PhD would have allowed him to be respected for the job/tier more automatically. He's an engineer. Thoughts?
Ladies who also abide by the “expecting better” philosophy that a glass of wine every once in a while is totally fine during pregnancy… I am going to a work women’s happy hour tomorrow. Yay or nay on using my weekly glass of wine? (I am clearly pregnant and people know I am pregnant). I kind of want to but I also fear the judgement and having to explain myself…

Anyone have any intel on Office Of Baby?
Anyone decide not to BF right out the gate? Please no judgement I have made no decision yet. Halfway through pregnancy and already tired of sharing my body, and husband and I want to share feeding duty equally (ie not with me pumping / being attached to baby). I realize there are significant benefits to BF which I wouldn’t take lightly in the decision just hoped to hear from anyone else who opted out from the start.
Just hit 6 figures before 30! 🤑 (Location: Chicago) As a child of immigrants, POC & woman, this is huge!! While they were supportive, my family didn't have corporate experience/understanding to offer guidance so there were a lot of lessons I had to learn on my own. Plenty of you make tons more but just wanted a more appropriate /anonymous place to be proud & brag since that's not really a thing to do publicly!
Baby just turned 6 month and I have been back to work for a month. Current company (in house) provides no WLB and I am thinking of going back to PA. SO thinks I am out of my mind, but I really need PA flexibility. Any advice?
How do you guys take care of your parents back home . I am a single child living in USA . I don’t want to go back and it is getting tougher day by day .
The post earlier today about a sick baby and a bad manager hasn't left my mind. Tonight, I found the article linked in the comments. Fellow mamas, don't let this be you. This hit me hard.
Exited to industry in May and already looking to leave. However the other person I'm working with is going for maternity leave soon. We are working together as PMO for a huge transformation project and I technically can't leave until she is back because there is no one else to step in.... I feel like it's not ethical to leave them now but i can't take it anymore. They rushed me to join them and I didn't know that was because she was leaving soon.. :( What are your thoughts ?
Parent partners - how do you get help for your children while being able to take care of your business? Au pairs? Nannys? Family? Wife is pregnant with our first and trying to formulate a support plan so I don't fall too far behind professionally...
Is it normal for pregnancy symptoms to fluctuate so much day by day? Some days I don’t feel pregnant at all and other days I can barely stay awake and am fighting mild to moderate nausea and other discomforts. I wish I could enjoy the symptom free days but they just make me so anxious. Was going to post this to the fertility bowl but most posts there are re: struggling with fertility and getting pregnant & I didn’t want to be insensitive. Hope it’s okay I’m posting here, just want some peace of
