Current moms, how do you make this career work with children? Putting off having a baby because I love my job and just can’t imagine how to do both.
There is a huge push for our district to install audio and visual cameras to the classrooms. What do you all think?
Had my first miscarriage late last year. 8 weeks pregnant now and saw baby on sono the other day however, at times I don’t “feel” pregnant. Like my boobs don’t feel sore and don’t have intense food cravings. Maybe it’s all in my head but how do I stop from worrying about a 2nd miscarriage? ☹️ My next appt is in 4 wks and I wish time sped up so I could feel more in the clear.
I got an email last night from a 7th-grade parent because her son said I mentioned the words "male privilege" in class, and she is very concerned about how that is related to ELA (she said "reading"), and she is concerned about this being taught in public schools. To be clear, I didn't do a lesson on this subject but we did discuss rights versus privileges. I've had multiple parents contact the school/get upset with me because of things like his. It's exhausting... Thoughts?
After having a pandemic baby, grinding non stop for the last year and dealing with massive understaffing cause everyone is finding new jobs - i’m done. Anyone have success talking a leave of absence at their agency and then rolling into contract/freelance work?
How would one calculate child support when there is an adoption stipend being received? I have an attorney arguing it should be included as income for calculating support and I have another attorney on the other side saying it should be excluded entirely as it’s a benefit for the children. The stipend is a monthly payment received as a result of an adoption that occurred when the parties were still together. I can’t find relevant case law or statutes on point. This is a KY issue.
Started taking prenatal vitamins , ubiquinol and vitamin D. Been doing this for a month to prep to get pregnant. Breaking out like crazy for 3 weeks now. Are these linked?
Are there any ladies here who want to stay single (or not really prioritize relationships), and stay child free?
Does anyone know EY’s parental leave policy. I believe it’s 16 weeks paid. What other kind of leave is there. This is for NY area.
Any mom's here who remember their first trimester? Anything you stopped doing, eating or drinking? Obviously the basics like alcohol, smoking, caffeine, raw seafood, flaxseed, rosemary, etc. Family is very cautious is driving me insane. Between covid restrictions and baby restrictions, I feel like I'm in jail. Suburban cycling ban and all-bran are the latest drama.
Having my 1st baby and trying to figure out invites for the baby shower and could use input. My SIL /MIL won’t host a family shower for me. My mom thinks it’s tacky for her to host anything. My friend is hosting a shower & told me to invite anyone I want. I’d like to invite family on both sides. I don’t want my friend to be stuck with the bill, so my hubby said he’d pay for it; my mom freaked out and said it’s like I’m hosting one for myself. She wants to not invite any family now. Thoughts?

I'd like to start on my kid's college fund. Looking for recommendations on the best types of accounts to do so. I don't want to restrict them to particular colleges and the 529 options are confusing to me.
2 weeks from my due date for our first. Any last minute tips/baby bucket list items? Other than “sleep!”
The opportunity: A CD opening at an amazing agency in Europe (I’m American). The dilemma: I’m 8 weeks pregnant. The visa process is time consuming and expensive and I will likely go on maternity leave shortly after arriving. Do I tell them? Or just see how it goes and then spring it on them? File under: Things men never have to think about.
Any tips for transitioning to maternity clothes? Did you put away “normal” clothes that didn’t fit or choose a section of the closet for maternity and bigger sizes? We have limited space, but I also don’t want to get too cozy in my new size large clothes and forget about all of the pretty, smaller things I used to be able to wear. 😩 Only first trimester but have already had to go up a size and feeling scared.
I grew up with strict father who doesn’t like getting happy and showing emotions , there are instances I felt this was specifically for women. When I got out of my home around 17 for college I became a very cheerful and excited person for every single thing. I loved myself , enjoy every sunset etc. met my boyfriend who was an introvert but he used to feel so happy seeing me happy for tiny things in life. FF 7 years - married and all I hear is sarcastic comments for my emotions. Contd..
Made the SPG Platinum Challenge last week. I'm so happy with it that I am a bit ashamed of the person I have become.

Hello All, do you think travel consulting will continue at the same pace? Or are companies going to want consultants on site less?
Fam— would anyone be interested in a Glassdoor for black people? i.e anonymized reviews of companies from POCs. I think it would be massively helpful in gauging the diversity and inclusivity of a company outside polished recruitment processes and would publicly hold companies accountable. Thoughts?
Question: What is the very first memory you have of the police or personally interacting with the police? I’ll go first. My first memory of the police was of having my rights violated and being denied medical care after a traumatic brain injury. I was 12. My husband’s was the police putting a gun in his mom’s face. Details in first comment.

Moved into a new building a couple months ago. There’s a doorman who will see me struggling with packages or bags and never offers to help (automatic door so he’s not even actually opening the door). Am I really expected to give him a holiday bonus at the end of the year??
