My wife and kid treating me with Father’s Day specials today 😋 Hope you are all having a fantastic Father’s Day!
Just found out my wife is pregnant with our second baby this morning. Will be 15 months apart from the first one, lets get it!
How do people deal with a really crushing, can completely, unfair loss? Filed a motion for temporary child and spousal support and the judge ordered my client to pay more than his salary. Obviously will be filing a motion to reargue and possibly an appeal. But those take forever and in the mean time I have a very upset client. It’s such a misapplication of the law and a horrendous judge but it’s hard to explain that to the client who is obviously very upset and can’t understand how this happened
Had a zoom interview and was on video right on time. There’s the recruiter, chomping chips, looking hit, oblivious I was there. Baby screaming in background, dog barking. The realness was refreshing.
Hi everyone. My father in law is going thru chemo therapy. I’ve not really had the best relationship with them but would like to support them and my husband. For my husband I try to be there for him - whatever he wants to talk about and never hold him back from his obligations. I check in with his father every week - phone or text. Visiting in person every week is hard for me … matching his medicine schedule with work schedule. I asked my husband to help me figure out how/when to see (continued)
My husband and I are both very ready to start a family. For those who have finished their PhD while pregnant or with a young child, do you have any regrets?
Im a new step mom of a 10 yo and it’s stressful since it’s hard for my colleagues to understand I’m now a mother even though I didn’t give birth.
I recently had baby #3, he's just turned 6 months & my eyesight has started going funny/bad. Hard to focus, 1 eye foggy. He sleeps through so I'm getting pretty decent sleep but it's still chaos trying to sort the house and having 3 kids under 4 means I very rarely have time to relax/me time. Some weeks I feel super social and others I feel cranky and just want to be a hermit for a bit. Does the eyesight sound like it's from exhaustion?? Has anyone had similar?
Current hh income of about 350k no debt. About to have a baby, and our hh income could go down to 220k if SO does not return to work. Most likely will, but we will not know 100% until we have our first, and could be PT.
Could we afford a monthly payment of $8k? Based on our current income, we can. However, there’s some concern after the baby. This would be a 10 year house, so assume it will be easier to afford over the course of living there.

After 2 failed IUIs I became pregnant on the next cycle naturally!! This happen to anyone else? I am shook. We were just about to start IVF. While we will probably still do it down the road to have eggs later on (we struggled to conceive naturally for a year and a half) I am thankful for the break. Still in shock.
For my peers in the UK, how far into your pregnancy did you notify your manager that you are pregnant? I’ll be 12 weeks pregnant this month. Should I wait until decision of year end performance in shared (ie end of January)?
Pregnant wife is having small portion meals lately, so i asked why she is eating less than usual. She read somewhere that eating too much can lead to oversized baby, making the delivery more painful, so it looks like she may be controlling the portion because of this. Is not eating enough a cause for concern?
Welcome to our pre-k inclusive classroom. Even with 8 students, and only face to face for 4 hours, we struggle. We struggle being heard through our masks. We struggle with social distancing. We struggle as we find ourselves constantly reminding students to keep their masks on. We struggle to keep them engaged and to teach. One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.
Been trying for 9 months and pretty discouraged. Met with dr and going to try IUI next cycle. Can I hear some successful IUI stories for a pick me up? Also very worried about chance of twins but also doesn’t sound terrible at this point. Crazy how outlook changes over time.
My manager recently went on maternity leave (2 months ago). She is leading a newly formed team and hired two new people just before leaving. We’re all remote and she hasn’t met most of the team in person (small team) but we will be in the city she lives in for a work meeting. If you were her - would you love getting a text from your team seeing if you’re available for a quick hang/meet the team in person/no work talk? OR would you want to just wait until you’re back from maternity?
Hi There- I’m currently pregnant with twins and was laid off when I was about 7 months into my pregnancy. Since then, I have applied to countless positions, spoken to multiple executive recruiters, and even got as far as the last round of interviews with a company—only to be turned down for “someone with more experience.” This is the 3rd time this is happened to me this year. I have over 10+ years in the healthcare industry, and am looking for a position (continued in comments below)

This happened gradually I guess, but now if I take a pause and evaluate almost all my snacks have become nuts oriented in some form or the other (whole nuts, energy bars, snacks etc.) is this bad? How much nuts is too much nuts ? 😅
I’m so tired of the discussion about whether to leave or stay or whether NY will bounce back. Things are out of balance right now and balance will naturally restore itself, whether that means NY will be the same or not. If you want to leave, leave. It’s your life. Only you can know best. Come back later if you miss it. Nobody can say what’s gonna happen but NY will be different that’s for sure, whether for better or for worse.
