My father passed yesterday from Covid. I have 3 conference calls today. I don’t think I’m going to make it.
Any recommendations on breatsfeeding books or resources? This is baby #2 but freaking out about supply. Have a virtual appointment with LC coming up but looking for some good sources of materials.
Missed getting parental leave by 12 days and have to go back to work after SDD because baby came a month early. Just looking for sympathy and trying not to be bitter.
Hey moms - first time pregnant and looking for some good books on pregnancy & early childhood development / raising. What are your faves?
I think I'm going to be a horrible mom. FTM, 25 weeks I have a very prominent bump now. I don't like the way I look so I wear super baggy clothes and have been avoiding pics. I constantly worry about how my body will be after the baby. I'm really excited to have a baby and can't wait to love him but I also want my body to be the way it was before the baby. I'm so selfish thinking about myself so much. Haven't said this out loud but this is genuinely how I feel. Scared I'll be resentful forever
Hi all, I am just shy of 9 weeks pregnant with twins from Timed intercourse with letrozol, and ovidrel injection (hooray). (36yrs old, 1st pregnancy) I wanted to know is if any other women who have ended up with twins due to fertility went through extensive testing to make sure both babies are healthy. What tests they did and what they learned. There’s a lot of info out there and I’m both overwhelmed and nervous that bc it’s twins they won’t be as healthy as if I had one. Looking for any advic
Do any of you feel like your firm has supported you as a working mother? I have negative feelings about my experience and am wondering if this is the norm.
I have the opportunity to work in house at a company I have been seconded at (with a team I love). I have only been in big law for 2.5 years. I am afraid of making a move before I have enough reps in deal work... and also artificially setting a ceiling on my pay and ability to be GC one day. I love corporate work but have never felt at home at my firm. Any advice on what to consider? Also I am expecting my first baby due in May!
I get terrible anxiety talking to my boss or sharing any of my work / thoughts / ideas with them, because I know it'll more often than not be torn to shreds / be cut down. I've only had it with this boss. How do I navigate / deal with this? Is it just a mindset change that I need to adopt?
Having a really hard time caring about anything work related. 7 months pregnant right now and so many other stresses taking over my day that I can’t prioritize work at all. I don’t want to seem like a
My mother saw a magazine ad in the late 1970s for Elmer’s Glue-All. She bought it for me to use at school. I remember the bottle, the smell (and the taste, hah). Over 40 years later, I stopped by a hardware store (with a mask, don’t worry). Looked for wood filler. I see Elmer’s Carpenter’s Wood Filler. I chose that one over the brand next to it, without hesitation. The original agency did not get credit for that ROI. Who should take the credit?
Planning for a second kid and can’t seem to make up my mind...what was your tipping argument to have or not have another kid?
How do you deal with someone who is constantly giving you pregnancy advice that you don’t want? I’m 12 weeks pregnant and whenever I see my friend all she does is tell me what to do for my pregnancy.
I work at a creative agency as a kid-level producer and need some help setting my goals for the year. I’m most like on track to be promoted to Sr. producer by the end of the year and really wanna get there.
I feel I’m at a crossroads and would love to please seek your opinions on whether I should stay in my current job, move, or have a kid (details in comments).
The only series I’ve ever successfully watched (and re-watched tbh) are: How I Met Your Mother and Dexter. Apart from these, I rarely watch TV. I feel like it says something about me but I can’t put it into words.
Any advice for how to ask my husband to get more involved in childcare and/or help around the house? I love him but I really wish he would put down the phone and pick up the baby more (2m old)
Mama 🐠: how did you know when you wanted to have children? In my late 20s and in a LTR but have no strong desire to have a kid. Wondering if it will hit me suddenly or if maybe I won’t ever want one
Got an offer for a job back in industry. They don’t know that I am a nursing mother. When should I ask about accommodations to pump twice in the work day? Before accepting, after accepting, 1st day?

Anyone tried selling miles?
Honestly, the hardest part about consulting is getting in the door. So stop complaining.
When you're drunk on a plane talking about how big time of a consultant you are and then you whip out a blackberry.........
What’s a better way to say, ‘you guys’?
It's Friday. You finally got everything done. Ready to pack up at 5 when an email with 9 new "urgent" projects come in and you have somewhere to be. #fuckallyall #offlineuntilmonday
I just started my job in consulting, and all I'm doing is taking notes. How long did it take you to start leading these engagements?
Listening to accountants present on GAAP rule changes and now I know how Beethoven would feel if he had to listen to a David Guetta track.
To all my industry friends working that 9-5: Well good for you, you look happy and healthy, not me, if you ever cared to ask
Delta or American? Why?
Do you guys ever feel guilty when you run into old childhood friends at their jobs? I was just standing there awkwardly in my burberry coat/hunter boot combo like "how girl, how you doin?🙍🏾🤦🏾♀️😳
Fridays = nap with my computer volume super high so I wake up if anyone pings me. Backfires when it's a friend...
Could you guys hook me up with some Likes? Trying to hit the minimum to send DMs. Thank you in advance
