3 months pregnant. So far I’ve had two ultrasounds at visits. I’ll be 4 months at next visit and yeah I guess I go every month for a visit. Question, do you get an ultrasound done at every visit? Maybe not required but can I ask for it?..
Any reccos on meals that are as fast and easy as pasta with sauce, but are not pasta and sauce? I cook - and pretty well and healthfully - when I have time and bandwidth, but so often by the end of the day I’m just fried, and those 20mins and 2 steps just win out. Added context: I’m a single mom. What I eat, my kid needs to eat.
Hi everyone! For those that feel comfortable, would love to see the breakdown AFC > eggs retrieved > fertilized > embryo > genetically normal (please feel free to include other steps, add in more numbers/details). I've read the averages of how it gets narrowed down, but always prefer hearing real breakdowns. I'm in the process of my first egg retrieval and trying to stay realistic. Really appreciate it!
Why is maternity leave, policy and other women's issues not important as compared to Juneteenth, coed bathrooms, and all the other issues in the media today? Women are half the population and at an average of 2.1 kids per woman, these are major issues. Are we not vocal enough? Organized enough? Not a serious voting demographic? Too grateful things are better in this generation? What is it? Why does 50% of the population matter less compared to these smaller marginal groups?
With 16 weeks parental leave at EY, 1yr no travel after after maternity for ACN, and all the distractions of workers with children, firms should show some love to the yeoman single or childless people
My wife and I are due with a baby girl in few weeks. Still not aligned on the last name though. In our community it's the first name of the father which typically becomes the last name of the child. Considering she has put in most of the effort and carried the child for 9 months I strongly feel the last name of the child should be her first name though. I would like my name as the middle one. Don't see why this system continues to be patriarchal.
As a male mid-level/senior associate, can you take the full parental leave (10-14 weeks) and come out without impact on partnership prospects? What are questions I should be asking to get at this issue before accepting a lateral offer? Quiz recent junior partners with kids? Seems a bit aggressive but may be necessary.
I'm in my last trimester with my first child! Was wondering if the mommas of the group share any tips on navigating motherhood, and juggling career and family? What were some of the highlights and challenges?
My so is the only kid and he was sure about receiving a decent inheritance from parents as well as aunt+uncle. The thing is he always told me explicitly his priority is to take care of his parents, then aunt+uncle, then the daughter of this aunt+uncle with his wealth and future inheritance (becomes the family money manager). In a way that it makes me feel very low in his priority esp that we’ve started talking about a future together. How would this affect your future financial planning? 💡
Just realized. When feeding baby and they bite you, they literally woke up and chose violence 😂
It's a shame that it took me eating out 4 times a week in major cities to realize how truly excellent of a cook my mother is. Here's to you ma 🍻🍮🍝🧀
Hey moms, How do contractions really feel? FTM and I’m starting to feel a little pain in the lower part of my belly. Given I usually have a high tolerance for pain(after a ton of sports injuries) not sure what is true labor/contraction pain. Trying to avoid a car baby or a lobby baby😅 P.S: I don’t have a lot of pain during my period (which is what my mum keeps saying it’ll feel like). So unfortunately that reference hasn’t helped! Any advice helps!!
Help! There is an assistant that works in my building that is downright rude and demeaning to both staff and students alike. She yells at us for bringing our kids to lunch right on time (when our 30 min lunch begins as well). She always complains about literally everything! We can make complaints for a team of staff and admin to try to correct, but cannot name specific people. I know for a fact a parent has already made 2 complaints this year, but I feel like more has to be brought up.

I just want to hear the explanation for why staff who started during COVID are doing so badly on average (and I have heard this from every level including staff themselves) from the pro 100 percent work from home people. If you agree it’s real, what is your solution? If it can’t be fixed, are we just accepting that the people we expect to backfill our positions aren’t going to be ready?
