Anyone switch companies while pregnant/trying to become pregnant and still able to take maternity? I have been waiting months for a DOD job to open up and was about to apply. Then I learned that in order to have paid leave (and any job protection), I’d have to work with the DOD a year first before going on leave. Add 6-9 months for background checks to the process and any hope of that job went right out the door for me as I’m currently in the process of doing IVF.
So our account person was caught putting their own personal feedback – feedback argued against in creative reviews – into the “client feedback” emails. They also seemed pretty unapologetic about it as they say “it’s pretty much what the client wants as well.”
Our CDs, ECDs, and the accounts person are going to have a separate Zoom call now. Oh, to only be fly on the wall of that call right now.

My husband and I are trying to get pregnant with baby 2. We tried last month and nothing came of it. Our first was a surprise and since I don’t have a “this is what I did last time and it worked” manual, I’m unable to pinpoint if we did something wrong. For what it’s worth, I have regular periods, so I can somewhat gauge my ovulation window. We are also <35 yrs if it matters. I have started to read up about fertility issues with 2nd kids and now I’m worried :( Any tips?
Really burning out from everything. I’m back after maternity leave and my full time schedule just kicked in. Baby girl just turned 5 months and is at home with family. Oldest in preschool. I just can’t do it all. I can work 8 hours sure but I mean I’m going 9-5, back on for a half hour 530-6, back off until 8. In my “down time” I am breastfeeding or having dinner with family then going through the entire childcare routine. I get everyone ready in the AM. I do drop off and pick up. I can’t breath

Should I max out my HSA or my 401K first? Torn on whether to keep high deductible /HSA plan & it's open enrollment. I'm 40 with chronic, expensive health problems and it only takes 4 months to burn through my $1800 annual deductible on my high deductible health plan. For context - Spouse and I have around 200k in savings and 200k in stocks, plus 80 each in 401k accounts from prior jobs. We have only saved $7k in an ESA for our one child (12 y.o.) and we rent in a HCOL- don't own any real estate.
In need of some advice 😣 I am going on maternity leave in three weeks. The more I offload work to my team, the more tasks that my manager keeps giving me. Some with unrealistic deadlines. Though I am grateful to have a supporting team, I am overwhelmed by my manager and her constant need to add on to my workload when I’ve made it clear week after week what I plan to close out before leaving. How do I tell her I am overwhelmed without coming off as a complainer?

I really want to try for baby no. 2 soon but now if I would start it would put me in my busiest month of January when the baby would be due.

I really want to start trying because I want my kids closer in age. My daughter turns 2 in July so I would like to start soon so they are 2.5-3 years apart. I don’t know
