I am very involved with parents due to the area that I teach. Parents have my phone number ICE. However, I have one parent who texts me at midnight sometimes, and I’ve gotten calls at 10:30 at night.
Any ideas on how to approach the marriage talk with my bf? We’re both in our early 30s, have been together almost 2 years and I’m getting some serious baby fever. Whenever it’s come up before he says marriage is something he wants but all in due course. Am I wrong for wanting to know when that will actually be?
As a father of two girls, I'd just love to hear from women in the group about what their favorite parenting styles/memories are from their dads.

Does anyone know if maternity benefits work differently when you are a partner? If so, how? I’m currently on the partner track and may consider having kids in the future when I could be partner so I was wondering how it works. I honestly can’t say that I’ve ever seen a woman at my firm go out on maternity leave while partner before (it usually seems that they have kids before partner or don’t have kids).
Great 👍 with the news on marijuana I’d like to also see the legal drinking age dropped to 18/19 . For it to be totally legal over the age of 16 to consume with a parent / guardian present.
My company has agreed to pay for me to get a specialized graduate certificate as part of a title promotion. I am also due with my first child on 12/31/22. If I want, I can start one of the introductory classes (two hours per week remote with flexible streaming option) at the end of January 2023 while I am on maternity leave. Otherwise, I would have to wait until June 2023. Is this an insane idea? I’ve had mixed feedback from other moms encouraging/discouraging it.
Anyone experiencing depression? I did a self assessment, and scored 2.5/5. Extreme fatigue, loss of joy and some level of loss of appetite ( not really experiencing prolonged sadness and trouble sleeping). If you are, are you seeking professional help? I’m 12 weeks pregnant. Had one serious depression episode during week 7, but has been getting better since. This week I feel like I’m getting back into the darkness again though. Is this gonna get better past trim1 or not really?
I use Anthem BCBS insurance. Just got a bill from the hospital for my 20 week ultrasounds imaging services. It costs $513 out of pocket. Because the service was back in Dec 2020, so it went against my 2020 benefit. This year I’ll need to do a 32 week ultrasound again in the same hospital, it’ll be another $500 out of pocket. I never know it costs so much before even having the baby. My deductible is $500, the year max out of pocket is $3100.
I have been a CCA medical coder for my hospital in Oregon for 8.5 years. I have been only been doing outpatient simple visit coding and my supervisors have basically stopped me and another coworker from advancing. We don't have any room for advancement and we are basically stuck.
Im nervous for reaching out to other companies to see if I can get a better offer and advance my career. Im nervous because I am a single mother of 3 and have been at my hospital for 14.5 years.
Any advice or tips ?

Husband works in finance (M&A) and we don’t live near family.

Hey moms. Do you have recommendations for blogs/books/YouTube channels to find STEAM activities for my kid? We did some stuff I remember from my childhood already. Looking for more ideas!
My best friend & I got pregnant around the same time. We didn’t know the other was even trying - just a happy surprise. But now I am going through a miscarriage and I don’t know how to feel. Lots of jealousy, but I’m still so happy for them. I knew it was a possibility (1/4 pregnancies end in miscarriage) but why did it have to be me? I don’t want to go to her gender reveal next week, it’s still just so painful but I feel like a horrible person for harboring these negative feelings towards her.
Anyone else have this unshakable, irrational feeling that everyone else makes more/has more money than yourself does?

Hello UX/UI Product designers!
How do you find motivation to work on your portfolio when you are happy with your job?
I haven’t updated my portfolio for about two years. I switched jobs last year with my old portfolio. I am happy with where I am working now so I have no need to update my portfolio. However thinking of updating my portfolio is just tiring.
How do you find motivation and how do you plan for it?

Does anyone have a good structure for their introductions to clients? I always find the initial chat about my background / experience to be difficult. As I have developed I am more confident in delivering it and have more experience to talk about, but I still haven’t found a way to make it impactful. Is this a skill or am I just finding it hard because I only have 1 YOE?

I work for a company with a pretty generous PTO policy and a mostly remote flex policy (4 days a month in office if within 75 miles of the building). One thing I’m wondering if there is a way to help us I get the “I’m taking a mental health day” call out regularly which causes a strain on the rest of the team because we were unable to prepare like we would with pre-planned PTO. Any ideas of things I can do as a manager to encourage pre-planned PTO instead of these call outs?

Ladies who work in consulting, especially tech consulting, can you report to this post? I’m looking into consulting as a possible career move and have question

-What’s your experience as a black woman in the business?
-How did you break into the biz?
-How do you see the business changing with COVID? Do they want you back in office?

Guidehouse interview with a few project leaders... any tips? Anyone been through the process? What should I expect?
Applied to Deloitte for a SC position & was told by HR that I was aiming too high so she had me interview for a Consultant position instead. Received an offer, she asked what salary I wanted & I said $100k based off the averages I saw online, she quickly agreed. Today was my first day & I saw that in the system they have me as a SC which has an average of $120k so now I’m not sure if there’s an error or if I got finessed out of $20k 😭 is it worth it to ask HR about/any tips on how to go about it
