What’s a reasonable dollar amount for a gift to my boss? They’re having a baby soon and she shared her registry with me. I was thinking $50, is that ok? I don’t want her to feel awkward

This is very weird to me - a boss basically asking for a present. If you actually want to do that, I think $25-50 is very appropriate for a present at your level.

First time pregnant here. I have no clue what to expect after delivery. My husband and I decided to not ask help from our parents as they live in another country and don’t want them to catch covid while travelling. So, just want to understand what would be the recovery time after delivery? How long will it take approximately, before I can cook a meal again? Just want to get an idea before saying no to our parents.

This is for the old timers. Is teaching now harder than when you started? With experience jobs are supposed to become easier. However, I started teaching when we still used chalkboards and attendance was hung by my door. I feel all these advancements that have supposedly made life easier has made our jobs harder.

Deloitte Moms, I just found out I’m pregnant with my first! Super excited! I have a question about the firm maternity leave policy. Per my knowledge, our maternity leave is 4 months. However, I’ve seen coworkers who went on leave for up to 6 months. How do they manage to do that? Also, based on your experience, when’s the optimal time to tell employer/ coworkers about your pregnancy?

Me and my husband are unsure whether we want kids or not. What are some good resources to read up on to understand what we would be signing up for by having a child or missing out on by not having one? Also ladies who have/do not have kids. What were your reasons for deciding against/for having kids. I am extremely confused and do not want to run out the clock and realise later that we should have had kids. We like kids (we always point out kids to each other in public) but unsure about our own.

Any tips for not burning out over the course of 2 hours?
