What soap do you use for cleaning baby bottles?
Just took a pregnancy test and it is ++! This is our 3rd, I am excited and we planned for this, but man the accountant in me can’t stop processing the numbers. Instead of focusing on our budget today (and the insane cost of daycare), help me find a fun way to tell my husband! My first I gave him the test and a little baby outfit from his alma mater, second I just said it while we were talking about how nice it is that our first is a good sleeper. Any fun ideas would be appreciated!
My best friend's sister is pregnant with her first child (a baby boy)! Can anyone share gift recommendations- perhaps reasonably ( max $80) priced items new mothers would find helpful to use daily or often?
I feel very lost. I just started as an associate at a big firm this year and have a one year old son. Learning how to be a mom and an associate has been extremely tough and I have felt burnt out on multiple occasions this year. Prior to having a child, I was a very determined individual and was used to saying yes to almost everything because I wanted to accomplish those things. Nowadays I feel like I don’t care about my job as much and being away from him gets more and more difficult.
I am thinking about having another baby. I have a 2 and a half year old boy. I am also going to be 41 next month. I had a really rough pregnancy the last time around and I’ll be 41 next month. Any mothers that had their kids after 40 with any advice?
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.
My dog was diagnosed with cancer today. He went through extensive medical tests in September and he was fine and now the cancer has reached his lungs and come too far for us to doing anything about it. He is my first child I can’t handle this pain. He will have 6-8 weeks at best.

Hi 🙋🏼♀️ Accenture moms. Re healthcare benefits: did you select HDHP or PPO plan and why? I’ve been on the HDHP plan for the last few years, which has worked well as I almost never see a doctor, but we’re planning to get pregnant next year and I’m reevaluating my options. How many prenatal apts should I expect? Is PPO better for this? Anything you wish you had known about being pregnant with ACN health benefits?
I had my 9 week scan today and everything went well - we saw the baby and heard the heartbeat. The doctor asked me to come in next week for the myriad prenatal blood test - is this common or is this because of my high bmi and PCOS? I checked with my insurance and looks like they won't cover it. Happy to hear from anyone else who has had this test done!

Anyone here at pwc and recently went on maternity leave? How many weeks did u take? And do you accrue pto during that time? I would think you can use disability benefits first and then add the 8 weeks parental leave and then use your pto. Just didn’t know if you still accrue during your paid leave. Thanks

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.

Question H1B workers - when or how long before your company sponsor permanent residency (greencard)? I still have (3) years to go before manager and greencard sponsorship, and I don’t think I could hold on to public accounting. What do you advice?
I think I made a faux pas during a discussion with a recruiter when asked what my salary expectations were. I KNOW not to give my number first but I was so caught off guard by the question since it was our initial discussion that I just blurted out a range. I’m afraid that I’ve now locked myself into a range with little room to negotiate if extended an offer. Any advice for how to proceed?
I hear severance is two weeks at Accenture. Anyway to negotiate that? No savings and a lot of loans at the moment.

So I think we can all agree that agency work is soul crushing right now. Endless zooms, pitches going nonstop, lack of connections. Question... is an in-house role any better right now? Would my life be... more manageable?
