When you took time off to have a baby, were you able to keep your email and check it from time to time?

Did I have access? Yes
Did I check it? Yes with my first and no with my second

It was too hard to read emails and not get sucked in. You only have this time once with your little one. Once it’s gone- IT IS GONE FOREVER. Soak it in and forget about this place while you can

Need some advice/ thoughts: a year ago the the person I thought it was the love of my life dumped me. She went radio silent and hasn’t spoken to me since. So recently I noticed that on our classes WhatsApp (we met during our EMBA) and I noticed she comments whenever I comment. About three weeks ago people stated posting summer get together pics and she didn’t comment on any of them. And then another classmate posted a Muslim holiday post…no comment. And she always comments on those. Continue:

I have a question. So, I'm in the hiring process for a sdr role in a tech company and I already have a trip overseas booked for around 20 days , leaving right after Christmas. It's a 4 steps interview and I'm currently on the second one.Should I let the recruiter know about it? Wait and see if I ended up getting the job and then I let them aware of my trip. Also, they offer unlimited pto, however I'm not sure if I would be eligible for.

P.s: the trip can not be re schedule.

I’m planning on not returning back to my job after my baby is born. I have no paid maternity leave outside of short term disability (60% pay for 6 weeks, an elective benefit that I pay for exclusively) and will use my sick time / vacation time while out, too. So, what’s the etiquette for when to put in notice while on leave? Any ideas?

Anyone else dread baby showers? I don’t want to go to my friends baby shower just because of the social aspect of it. Dreading the side conversations that I may have.

I’m 90% certain my owners are selling our privately held financial services company. This is a family owned company and they have always been very generous and cared for their employees. I’m not sure whether I should start pursuing other opportunities and cash out my PTO or stay until the end and hope they want to still care for their employees once the acquisition is complete. Has anyone been in a similar situation and have any advice to offer?

Why does so many guys on dating apps are holding a puppy 🐶 , fish 🐠 , or baby 👶, and make it sounds like hiking 🥾 and kayaking 🚣‍♀️is mandatory ?

We started following this bowl about a year and half back. My wife used it on my phone as her constant companion throughout the period. She would often grab my phone read through all posts and tell me about all the good and bad news. After a few unsuccessful IUI attempts, today we got the good news that we are pregnant in our first IVF. A big thank you to this group for being a support while we went through this journey.

Need advice: I just started this week at my new company and prior to joining I brought tickets with my friends together for a one week vacation to the West Coast. It will be the week of 7/4. Now I just talked to my manager about taking the week off, but found out we are actually really busy that week. There were some compromise, but still not ideal. I have really 3 options: change my group flight, cancel, or work during the vacation. Any other options or advice will be helpful!

In My first job as UX designer, due to $$ I was denied access to user research about 2 months in and my role was reduced to “just design this feature”. As I just switched careers I feared I would not find a new opportunity and stuck around. It’s been 8 months now and I’ve been desperate for a new job. I know I need to showcase my recent work on my portfolio but I’m severely struggling to write a case study for the mvp I designed. The lack of involvement of any users leaves me embarrassed…
