I took a positive pregnancy test this morning (yay!) after a four-day vacation that involved way more than my fair share of drinking. I’d taken a pregnancy test the day I left for vacation and it was negative. While I am so excited about the positive test, especially after miscarrying several months ago, I can’t help but feel totally guilty and worried I may have affected the baby. Please tell me I’m not the only one who has experienced this and whether my anxiety is warranted!

Any fish here dealt with a lonely/toxic parent? I recently came to the realization that my mom is toxic (think guilt-tripping, saying mother-child bond is sacred, making comparisons, etc.) and has become very dependent of me, and as much as I want to be there I can only do so much since I have a family myself. She refuses to move to a nursing/retirement home, look for companionship, and seek professional help for tasks she needs done such as car maintenance, insurance inquiries, etc. (Cont’d)

Just found out my mother is dying from cancer and does not have much longer to live. I took a week of PTO to help my dad. I can’t afford to take leave and my family thinks I should continue working.

Struggling with jealousy of another woman- Im pregnant and the father is off engaged to another pregnant woman he cheated on me with and I’m in therapy but it’s a total blow to my self esteem and heart.

My partner feels at unease around my parents. She thinks that my mother doesn’t like her (she adores her) and feels like she doesn’t fit in. I don’t see what she is seeing but I also want to support her. How can I ease her anxiety around my family and make her feel more welcomed ?
Hello! A senior associate that I work for is expecting and she will be going on parental leave soon. She has been a great mentor to me and so I wanted to get/send her a gift congratulating her on the new baby once she goes on her leave. Any ideas for a gift? (We aren’t incredibly close so it doesn’t seem as easy as shopping for a friend/family member who just had a baby, if that makes sense) TIA!
Does anyone here work for Silicon Valley Bank? They recently acquired Boston Private. I’m a candidate for a job at Boston Private. Wondering if SVB is planning layoffs in the near term at BP? Also, does anyone know the anticipated benefits to be rolled out from SVB as the parent company? Specifically interested in health insurance providers. Thanks in advance for any information!
