If you can avoid it, then don't. If not, do it tastefully.

If you’re benched then it shouldn’t matter to the company

Wait until it’s over

Maximize the parental leave

Isn’t this a no no? If it was paid leave can’t they try to take some of that money from you? I’m not sure, just something to check on

Kudos to the OP who shared her life story (about being pregnant and deciding to keep the baby despite the initial backlash from the father) and continuing to update us. Initially I didn’t get the dilemma, now I do. It makes me feel I’m a part of your life in some small way. Maybe it’s sad, but I really needed that during these difficult times. The support in this group is phenomenal.

I’m in second trimester. I just came from my grandfather’s funeral, outside. My aunt was around her 2 siblings last week that had Covid and she hasn’t been vaxed. She hugged me and mom (4 weeks from her last chemo session) and only told us about her siblings after. I’m so mad. I guess I’m just venting but the potential complications for the baby, me, and my mom make me worry. Any comforting words?

Hi, How many of you were successful using "taking cara baby" (especially for newborn's sleep)? You can just say "me" or "not me" if you are busy. I am deciding if I should buy the course. Things are getting better on week 4, but it's not good and the hours between 6 and 10 pm are awful.

I have about 190K total (loans are my only debt) and am of the group that’s fine paying off slower overtime for more cash flow now but w/ interest so high I’m thinking paying itwould put me ahead?!
