What is the parental leave policy in your company?I heard many companies do not offer anything more than FMLA ( which Ofcourse they’re mandated to provide).
So clarification question: if a company offers parental leave without any stipulations of how long you need to work there first, you can take it without being eligible for FMLA, right?

My daughter had a private school visit yesterday with a school we’re interested in where the kids go in small groups with a teacher to play. At first we thought it went great she said she had fun. After asking more questions we found out she got in trouble because she wanted to do something else during story time. How much could this impact her getting accepted? This is our first kid in school (pre-k) so not sure how everything works.
18 weeks pregnant (1st time) and have always been an active/fit person workingout 5x/wk cardio/treadmill and some weight lifting. I've toned down my workout routine since I found out I'm preg as I got 2 v diff advice from the NP I first saw then the OB/GYN herself. NP warned of exercising as this should not be my priority now (which I agree) he warned from any running/or weight lift (were talking 40-70 lbs). Ob was so flexible about it and said I can maintain my routine as long as not exhausted.
I have a new babysitter/mother’s helper. she is a college student and i’m trying to figure out what to tell her to do when baby naps (often for two hours). she has a long break in between but my day with her lacks structure , so basically she is watching my child and they play the whole day. I will start asking her to prepare meals for him but trying to figure out how to go about this. i’m so un domesticated.
So I’m pregnant and going to get an abortion (any pregnancy for me is incredibly high risk - 25+% chance I wouldn’t survive - not that any other reason for an abortion is invalid either). I’m not sure if I should tell the guy I am hooking up with. I feel like he should know. That being said I don’t need to send him down a spiral. His ex of 4 years had a late term abortion without telling him and told him when he found her in bed with his really good friend. He’s finally improving psychologically

Mamas, did any of you consider extending your maternity leave? My 16 weeks is almost over and I’m just not ready yet… physically, emotionally, mentally. Should I return for a few days then reassess? Or if not, how do I even have this convo with my manager?
What do mom’s wear for their kid’s birthday party? We’re throwing a birthday party for our 2 year old who spent her first birthday in Covid lockdown. I’m also looking to color coordinate with her. I narrowed down on red as our color but am unable to decide on what to wear. Is a sundress too casual?
We are at 33 weeks and baby is measuring on the smaller side (17th percentile overall). The stomach is measuring at 8th percentile and wife’s fluids are “on the lower side of normal”, both of which are a bit concerning. The baby is also breached, which may be causing inaccurate measurements. Saw the high risk doctor today who wants to do weekly growth monitoring. Anyone experience something similar? Would appreciate any insights!
Anyone else struggle with being truly present with their kid(s)? I feel like I’m on my phone constantly, I wish I wasn’t. I just reach for it all the time, Vs enjoying my 21 month old toddler who will only be this young for such a short time. Feeling like crap- let me know what helped you!
So I am a year overdue in submitting expenses but for a period my father passed, I was 150% utilized, and there was a glitch that didn't allow import of corp card expenses - should I submit or eat it?

I was laid off in June and just got a job offer that I am excited about. However, my partner and I are also in discussions about moving. The job would be remote for at least another 5+ months so it wouldn’t be an issue now, but eventually people will be back in the office in some hybrid plan. Is it better to float the possibility of working remote long term with HR now? Or do I accept and say nothing til we’ve officially decided to move. I don’t want to lose the opportunity. What would u do?

Lost sense of maximizing points/mileage value for int’l flights. Why is Detla redeeming so much more for some routes than Chase UR and even other partner airlines? E.g. non-stop economy btw Detroit-Seoul // Delta redeeming 160k on its own route while Chase UR 123k & Korean Air 80k for same route (code share)... I get it all depends on timing but still weird directly using Delta Skymiles on its own Delta route is more expensive than going through other methods....
