Tell us how long you've been a teacher without saying how long you've been a teacher. Ex: Overhead projectors were like gold 😂.
Is there a way to find out the gender of the baby if I am still in my early 1st trimester? Like heart beat, my reaction to food, haha... an impatient mom...

Thoughts on weaning - my sweet baby is now 13.5 months and was down to nursing twice a day after she turned one. The last ~2 weeks she’s either been too distracted or too tired to nurse in the evening

Been 2 weeks and I am tired of pumping. I only pump like 20-30 per session and 5x a time but each time it takes almost 1h from start to finish (lube the flange, gather the equipment, find a spot, find my water/food, pump, clean up and put stuff away) and I am not even washing them (hubby is doing that). What did you do to make it more efficient? Also I can't seem to figure my flange fitting. I follow the guidelines and the suggested one is more uncomfortable than a large size. Help.
Friends 5yo when I walk in front door: “Jessie, do you have a baby yet? Momma says you want a family. Did you do it? Where’s your baby?” Thanks, kid.
Any women suffer from extreme hair loss? I’m indian, and have had hair fall since I was a kid. Now it’s pretty bad though, my scalp has started showing and it sucks :( Any stories from others?
Doing some benchmarking as we revisit our leave policy. Do any of your firms offer external career coaching for transitioning into / then back from parental leave? Any organizations you’d recommend or things you’ve found to be particularly helpful / successful? Thank you!
I think the HVAC ducts of my apartment (non-luxury building in Brooklyn) have a pretty serious mold infestation. It might explain my allergies and I'm having a baby in a few months so I want to be extra careful. Advice? Can/should I break my lease? Does it depend on the contract? I'm already getting a mold test to see what type we are dealing with.
I have an employee who has been out on Mat leave since beginning of October. She is scheduled to come back beginning of Jan. Today I received an email from our employee asking if she can work the following schedule for the month of Jan: two week 3 days on, two off and then another two 2 days on, 3 off. This is due to COVID and not wanting to put the child in daycare (which I totally get). Not being in a situation like this before, how do I respond?
My ex wife with whom I share custody of my 14 year old daughter has a live-in boyfriend who recently lost his mother and has developed a drinking problem. For the second week in a row I’ve had to pick up my daughter from their apartment because they were fighting and screaming at each other. Last time (1:30 AM Friday morning) he had physically assaulted my ex wife and then threatened to kill himself. I thought surely my ex wife would have kicked him out at least and better yet gotten a contd.
Moms, need some advice. Husband and I have decided to try to get pregnant. I love the thought of having a baby but there is this nagging anxiety about life changing drastically & the thought of how good of a mom I will be. I don’t take well to big changes in life so knowing this is going to be physically & emotionally different is worrying me. Anyone been through this?
Hey PwC time to step up your parental leave...
My father wants to buy us a second car as a gift in anticipation of the birth of our child. Anyone have any recommendations? We currently have a Subaru Forester. Have two dogs, two humans, and expecting a third human. Like road trips, etc.
Question.. How many of you have students in your class that wear the latest fashion clothes, new Jordans, the newest cell phones along with the Apple Watch and can’t read or write and the parents know this but have an issue with you when they are failing.
had a miscarriage recently and am having hard time not to think or worry about what happened. It’s been 3 weeks and my husband just yelled at me saying 1. I should be grateful for the kid I have 2. We didn’t plan so I can’t worry about it. 3. That he is done caring for our toddler in the mornings( he wakes up pretty early in the morning due to daylight savings) and i am unable to sleep at night, end up sleeping in the morning. Does anyone go to therapy for miscarriage? Does it help?
Gearing up towards salary negotiations, I've got 2 YOE and 66.668$ TC as a consultant with no benefits. My role description has changed quite a bit since I started and I'm now the only colleague with a qualified QA degree in my team. I am considering putting forward a proposal of a 25-30% increase to match my role as QA lead, is this to bold?
Been pretty loyal to Hilton for some years. Just now staying SPG. Can't help feel like I've wasted so much of my life 😭. #SPGisamazing
Lots of “deloitte days” and extra days off this year. Do other big 4 do this? It’s been nice to get extra vacation

Has anyone managed to book an appointment at the US embassy in London for a non-immigrant visa (L1A/B)..?
Hi! I am on L1 visa and applied for i-131/765/485 early in the year as a dependent. Can I stay in the U.S. lawfully if I quit my job and lose L1 status before the approval of EAD/GC given I have a pending change of status application? I will soon talk to an immigration lawyer, just wondering if anyone has heard a similar case before.

How have you answered the question : Are you interviewing / have offers from other firms? I’m pursuing multiple exit opps, but I want the one that says there won’t be a decision for 3 weeks (cont’d)
i’m convinced that people who don’t care about the coronavirus essentially don’t care about their parents, the elderly, the human race.
I went back to the office this month (3/4 days per week) and it’s been a positive experience. Plus it seems that some partners who are going in appreciated it. But the office is a 15 min drive away for me. Some people need to commute an hour plus to be there. Will they be at a disadvantage if they actually try to take advantage of hybrid WFH in the future?
