In a week, I have a black tie wedding coming up at a beautiful indoor/outdoor city venue. I’m stumped about a dress because I’m also 3 weeks postpartum from my first child. I gained 50lbs during my pregnancy and have already lost 35 since the birth. (It’s amazing how much of it was just baby + bloat!) I am looking for a dress that will hide the mommy tummy (some loose skin that’s still tightening). I’m also nursing and my boobs are HUGE rn. Any recs on how to try to dress this new body?? 🥲
Planning to move to Deloitte in next couple of months. Can any of you please help me with the parental leave policy? How much is it and can you take it within 6 months or so of joining ?
Has any 🐡 dealt with the death of a one’s parent? My dad’s got stage 4 cancer and I’m afraid mom won’t cope if he passes away. Going already through the worst case scenario through my mind 😐
For all you singles just be prepared for lots of squares, circles and triangles for the Halloween party’s this weekend. The baby should’ve been 001 but couldn’t find the track suit that fits.
FTM - I’m just curious on how some of your maternity leave is set up. I received short term disability pay for 6 weeks and then paid from my job for 6 - they offered additional bonding time, but unpaid. The paid portion came from my “sick time.” I wasn’t sick, I was caring for and bonding with my son. That’s been bothering me since I returned. Now I don’t have any sick leave and any last minute time that I need to take is unpaid. Other countries give moms the entire year, 100% paid 🥴
30+ single ladies: how do we lead better lives as singles? I’ve dated a lot of egoistic narcissistic jerks in the last few years. Losing hope that there are decent men left in their late 30s.. I want to have a meaningful life but don’t know if I’d be able to raise a child by myself. I don’t have many friends in the areas I move around for work. Dreading the day when I won’t have any support system. How should single women approach life in 30s when bio clock’s ticking and its all darkness..

Have you all heard about the EFMLA? You can get 2/3 pay for 12 weeks if you need to care for a child due to corona and have no one else. And your job is protected. My coworker is doing it.
Hi fam! Me and my partner (females) just got an oral consent from my partners best friend (gay male) to be a sperm donor. Anyone has experience with this? I know lesbians usually go to sperm bank but we wanted to know “baby daddy” and have him involved as a godparent and when kids ask questions introduce him as a father. Personal life stories and dos and donts welcome. All my friends are straight or gay men so I have this resource and general internet.

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
