For moms that did NIPT, did you also end up doing CVS, and/or amniocentesis? Were all of the results consistent? For context, we just had our 8 week ultrasound and I thought hearing the heartbeat would help me finally stop freaking out about baby being okay, but turns out I have just graduated to a whole new host of worries about what else could be wrong.
I am currently on maternity leave and feel the struggle to take care of a baby. Really cannot imagine what will happen after going back to work. Especially with COVID I am not planning to send my baby to day care unless vaccination has pretty good coverage. How do parents in big4 even survive? Need some advise to take care of both baby and work.
I changed roles within the firm about a month ago, which had been in discussion for nearly 6 months. I’m 14 weeks pregnant and so nervous to tell my new boss. My previous pregnancies, I didn’t share until I was at least 5 months pregnant for personal reasons. However, this time I feel like I owe them more notice since I’m new to the role. How would you approach it?
Experience working for Eagle Hill? Heard they have 18 days PTO vs our 25, and 4 weeks maternity leave vs our 4 months, but I need a change of pace. Anyone had luck negotiating higher pay or more PTO

Hi ! I’d like to take the infant CPR class in prep for baby arrival, but the classes are in person in the hospital and the times don’t work for my work schedule. Have you done it online by looking up videos on YouTube etc? Or is in person the only effective way to learn? Any suggestions? Thanks!
Do you invest in tax free 529 plan for kids - yes/no? What’s your monthly amount and which state’s plan did you choose? I am assuming a target of 50% should be good in principal with rest coming from the interest/gains?
I am curious how many high school and middle school teachers of both low and high incidence disabilities, feel like they are knowledgeable enough about transition services. Additionally, how did you become knowledgeable - continuing education, mentors, self-educated, parent educated? I am currently working on my masters and researching the obvious gap between high school teachers and community service providers that inevitably results in frustration and delayed services for students.
I just got my positive pregnancy test yesterday and I'm freaking out. First pregnancy (I'm 32), my husband and I just started trying last month and I didn't expect it would happen so soon! I feel like every time I look something up it's something I can't do (caffeine, exercise, food, etc). How do you ladies manage it all with our careers? I'm just so nervous to be able to make everything work with a baby. Would appreciate any advice!
Any good parenting book recommendations for a kid entering 1st grade? Read lots of the positive discipline series and found it helpful through the toddler stage but now looking for some practical parenting advise for grade school. Thanks!

Bah news for all of you with outstanding loans.
I had final interview today with one of the elementary schools in GTA, ON Canada. I got the offer with $50,000 starting salary but the IT has a solo person who’s called IT Director in team and I’ll be 2nd person. About 6 weeks vacation including Christmas, Jewish holidays and 2 weeks personal vacation. I interviewed for another big company GHD on Tuesday (waiting to hear back). And today I got two more interviews from Mid-sized companies- one of them pays ~$54,000. What should I do?
Can someone help me understand the math here:

Is rent downtown generally cheaper than Deep Ellum?
Looking at either renewing my lease downtown or moving to Deep Ellum. I’m wondering if I can negotiate Deep Ellum rent down by citing that my downtown apartment (similar amenities, sq ft, etc) is $400 cheaper. There’s only one building in particular I’m considering in Deep Ellum, I just can’t stomach paying almost $2k/mo for a regular one bedroom.

How many people’s jobs would you absorb before requesting your role be re-evaluated/leveled/comp adjusted? I am already doing one person’s job when we decided not to backfill them when they left and just got nominated to take over someone else’s responsibilities while they are out on a multi-month leave. I could handle this if I was an individual contributor but I also have a significant team I’m managing and the additional responsibilities are coming at their expense which is unfair to them.

Will this cause a career damage in my profile?
