When did your first period come back after delivery? I’m 8months post partum and still no sign of period.. (BF baby still). We want to start trying for baby no.2
I left my well paying secure job in a large bank last year to take a career break and focus on my young child’s development. I left just before making promotion but I felt that was way overdue. I’m now looking to get back in to work and near offer stage but it’s 10% less than what I had. It is in consulting industry and there will be opportunities for skills / career growth . I’m considering going back to my old employer, I left on excellent terms but I left- is this a bad idea?
I’m going to meet my friend from office who is 4 months pregnant and I want to gift her something that could be useful to her (not tiny baby clothes or baby related products ) ? Any suggestions?
I was recently laid off. Feel frustrated as I have not been able to do my search properly as I take care of my infant all day long. What do I do?? I feel so lost. I want to go out there and do a aggressive search but each day passes by and I am doing chores all day. I feel so helpless. As much@as taking care of@my kid is gratifying and as much as I love and enjoy it, I want to get out there and work! What do I do. I need help.

Did anyone else adopt the new Florida Wonders curriculum? We just adopted it this school year, and I teach 4th grade. My team and I have not found a good flow, schedule, or whatever you want to call it. We feel like it teaches too many skills in one lesson, and we are not able to truly teach anything “deep” enough for students to master. Does anyone have any insight? What do you do? Do you like the curriculum? Why or why not? Would you be willing to share what you do weekly/daily? Thanks!
I’ve been reading over Deloitte’s Maternity policy. Do we have to take short term disability 1st before we start using the Family Leave. I’m just trying to understand if leave is 16 or 22 weeks total.
Pregnant with number 2! Excited but nervous about everyone telling me how much harder things are with 2. Any tips or good resources (books, blogs?) TIA!
After getting back from maternity leave I feel like my career growth is limited. I work a lot, continue to be aggressive in my career, but I can definitely see the different treatment. I am afraid I have hit my limit. It is me being insecure or does anyone else feel the same? Any advice?

When did you realize you had an alcohol problem? Did a therapist, doctor help you recognize this issue? I think I have a problem but my therapist doesn’t seem to agree. My grandfather and father have alcohol issues and my sister is on AA. I seem to have this urge especially when I am under stress….

My almost 4 MO EBF baby is spitting up all of a sudden after every feed. He used to have occasional spit ups ( once per week ) but suddenly it’s almost an ounce after every feed and he looks so uncomfortable before spitting up . He doesn’t roll over either ways and our pediatric nurse is like it’s probably GERD don’t mind. Waiting to talk to our usual doctor next week. Anyone else face this ?

Looking for advice on a career change. I have been in crypto for around five years, and more specifically working in compliance.

Story today from the ginger mental health app: “Following a year of working from home, with personal and professional lives blurring more than ever, employees' mental health is at the forefront of many companies' minds. Yet, a new survey shows that while 96% of CEOs believe their companies are doing enough for employee mental health, only 69% of employees agree.” What are people’s thoughts? Unfortunately I am not surprised by this disconnect

Is anyone else bored out of their mind during the weekends & evenings? Most of my friends have temporarily moved out of the city, I'm not willing to take the risk to explore nearby destinations, reading/tv only entertains me for a few hours at a time, recently broke up with SO. Naturally an introvert but lately this has been a lot to handle. What have y'all been doing to stay happy?
