Going through IVF cycle now. Every ultrasound session costs about $800-$900 each. My firm insurance covers like $90. I need to pay the rest out of pocket. Does this sound normal? Thank you!

MBA admit here and have to put down a deposit soon, having serious cold feet right now due to the covid situation and potentially having to start virtually. Would love any perspective on how it's been particularly socially and what your schools' outlook on the fall is
Hired cleaner recommended through the Neighborhood app. She came for the first couple of cleanings and did a great job. Subsequent cleanings, she sent other people and today, instead of two adults, the replacement cleaner brought her 13-year-old daughter. Am extremely uncomfortable, not just because of the bate and switch but more so because of child labor laws. I know these individuals can probably use the money, what is the right thing to do?

Tips for surviving the last month before going on maternity leave. It's challenging physically and mentally. And stress is at an all time high.
Oof. Crying like crazy. My in laws called me and were insanely emotionally abusive about my grief. It’s Father’s Day and we had a wedding to go to. I didn’t expect to be this affected but something triggered my grief. So I didn’t go. They called me and said such toxic things and implied I need “help”. Yes it’s been 2 years but I also do a lot for my family and husband and others. It’s very rare that my grief gets triggered. I’m allowed to have 1 bad day out of 365.

Sometimes I attend city meetings for new housing proposals, bike lanes, bus lanes, outdoor dining, etc. Quite literally 100% of the people speaking in opposition to these projects are Baby Boomers, who typically complain that they are going to lose their free parking spaces. Is there some particular reason this generation seems to be opposed to almost everything, and obsessed with parking?

Hello, due to covid I moved in with my parents and was able to save some money to buy a house. My parents basement and garage were already full of my brother’s items ( Navy Guy) so I put my items in a storage unit. I am looking for a moving company that can get my items from the storage to new house. Any suggestions of good and reliable movers? I need the movers to load, unload and set up some furnitures. I live in Atlanta GA now if that helps.

I’m six weeks and have either a yeast infection or UTI (been awhile since I had either and symptoms since last night can go either way).

33+4 weeks pregnant with my first and having some concerning symptoms and want to know if I should go to hospital. I live in NYC, so maternal care is a little more lackadaisical than out of town. I called my OB line (assumed there would be an on-call? Was never told what to do in this scenario) and the call center said they’ll send my info to the on-call to call me back. It’s been over an hour and still haven’t heard anything. Is this normal?
