I liked the what to expect app. I read the message boards for my birth month every day (and still do bc it’s all your peers with babies the same age). Love the community!

like

Agreed. The message boards are kind of a mixed bag in terms of advice and some people can be a bit judgmental or purposefully controversial but for the most part it’s been useful.

I started using Flo for ovulation tracking and continued through pregnancy. Pretty happy with it overall esp. The little articles that it refreshes everyday based on where you are at in pregnancy.

Is a webmba a good option to just achieve the mba? The program I am looking at gives you a cohort that you will have the entire program. Online is the easier route for me (wife and kid, wfh, and far from campus)

It’s affordable and I believe that just having the MBA will help me in the future, I’m just trying to gauge what people think. None of the biased “it’s all about the networking” stuff. Just want to know how it’s viewed on a resume and you aren’t looking at a career change on completion

I have had an aide for over a year. She tries to befriend kids instead of playing an adult role. She can’t tell them no and gives them whatever they want, even if it’s interrupting my lesson. I’ve asked her to do simple tasks and she doesn’t seem to be able to, I either correct her work because she can’t do it right or do it myself. She sometimes goes from 0-100 on a kid who is not listening to her, which makes me uncomfortable. Instead of saying no she deflects to me so I seem like the bad guy.

Currently have a 5th grade girl who is struggling with classroom behaviors and choices. When questioned, she says she wants to be a boy, but her parents won’t allow it. Obviously, she is struggling with more than making good choices at school. Her parents are very kind and appreciative of all we do for their child, but they are also clearly struggling with this. Anyone ever been in a similar situation or have some advice on how we can best support the student?

I took 2 positive pregnancy tests after our first attempt to get pregnant (!). I’m happy, but pretty shocked as we expected this to take a few tries (I have underlying medical history) and it feels a bit surreal. I think I’m also having an “oh sh*t” moment thinking about how we will actually balance our dual careers in demanding industries. Would love practical advice/ real life examples of how other dual career couples have made it work, esp in consulting, and hopefully some positive support :)

Hi All,

at 6th week and am 31 years old. I live in Canada. When I was asking about NIPT test, My doctor said I do not really have to get it done because of my age. But she said, if I want to get it done I can prefer to do.
Am not very clear if everyone should prefer to get NIPT done. My mom’s eldest brother’s son has some issues like low IQ and learning capacity. Should I opt for NIPT? Any possibility to get false positive on NIPT and end up doing further tests like aminocentesis?
