Not exactly womens fashion but what can i get for a friend who's having a baby in a few weeks? It's a girl, but I think it would be nice to include a small gift for my friend too since she probably will get baby presents from others too.
Has anyone made the decision to purposely become a single mother? Late 30s looking at this option.
My husband and I are trying to have a second child and have been trying for over a year. I recently was referred to a fertility doctor and after many tests found out I don’t have much time (I’m 36). The doctors say all I can really do is live a healthy lifestyle (which I do anyways). Any tips or advice from moms that battled infertility? I’m trying to stay positive but it can be so hard sometimes.
Desperate to have another baby in a couple of years but also need to change jobs due to lack of promo over last 2 years. I'm really stuck on what to do as the 2 companies I've looked into with a good (ish) mat leave have both rejected me. Staying at my current company until after baby isn't really an option as I hate it so much and it's getting me down. The company is actually OK but I'm not happy with my level and I have no support. Any advice for me?
Another supervision/duty post...I have noticed that there is a parent who never has her baby in a car seat and their car “stinks” if you catch my drift. I feel like it’s not my place saying anything but it scares me to see a baby strapped into the front seat of a car...even if they live super close
I’m pregnant! (With our second child) I am probably 2-3 weeks pregnant so I’m not sharing the news quite yet, but I needed to tell SOMEONE 😅😁🥳
Has anyone enrolled in the Aetna maternity program? Is it worth it? I have it free for my insurance
At what point is it justified to cut a parent off? I grew up in a toxic and emotionally and physically abusive immigrant household. I’d say my parents made a decent amount of money to support us, but my dad is an addicted gambler who constantly put the family in debt. Everything we did was a reaction to his behavior. Ex. Sell a car on the short term to get a few thousand dollars to cover debt people coming for him and then taking out another loan for a new car of his choice in a few weeks. Cont
So annoyed that my partner falls asleep instantly and not o only that he snores and keeps me awake. I end up having to sleep in the next room. He has no worries at all. He falls asleep like a baby.
My half sister (now in her 30s) told me last night that our dad (my biological father) sexually assisted her when she was 13. I don’t know what to do my world is flipped upside down
I’m what you’d call the “good kid” I always got to see the bad kids get away with stuff my whole life and I thought having a moral compass would pay off but a lot of times I feel jerks move ahead....
Do you think consulting a good place to have a first/second child? Some pros I gathered include decent maternity leave policies and the ability to come back into the same job because we are project based. Industry (tech) would have better WLB and insurance, but I heard in most cases your job will have changed when you come back from leave.
What is your opinion on a 4-day work week? Do you think people are generally more productive? Will consulting ever adopt this?

So, I’m currently interviewing for new job, and market is not bad, but I’m anxious and I am interviewing for every opportunity that comes my way (director/vp level, tech). Today, September 30 I received an invite for an initial interview for another opportunity. So I applied to this opportunity through networking on August 10 (!). It looks like a red flag for me and I’m thinking thankyounext, but again it’s covid time... Thoughts?
Looking for some advice on an exit opportunity - Current role - 1 year post-MBA at a T2 strategy firm making $148 Potential role - senior level role at a small healthcare company at $265 + equity Seems like a slam dunk, but is moving to a company that isn’t well known going to harm me in the long run? Should I wait for a F500 role that is lower title / comp but better name recognition? Should I wait until I’m manager? Having a hard time with this from a long term view vs short term

Advice needed! So I completely bombed the GMAT today (70 points below my OG practice test average LOL). Should I cancel it or keep so I can buy the enhanced score report? I know I was having major testing anxiety and was off on timing, but I’m curious to see whether the ESR will reveal any other useful red flags to make sure this does not happen again. How much will it hurt me to keep the score (680) if I end up getting a much better score in 2 weeks when I try again?
I am interviewing for an in-house counsel position at a large corporation. I have four 30-minute (and back to back) Zoom interviews set up with various executives at the company (one being the GC to whom the position reports). Does anyone have any advice on how to prepare and what to expect?
