My partner and I had an unplanned pregnancy a couple years ago. I was always very pro-choice, but when it came to me, I couldn’t go through with abortion. He really didn’t want to be a father, and was v angry. He committed to stay, but it is over a year post-baby, and we haven’t been intimate since our son was conceived. He told me last night that he doesn’t know if he can be intimate with me again, bc I broke his trust by keeping the baby, and if it were to happen again, he wouldn’t survive.
Hi Off topic : Dont know is there anybody here undergoing pain and agony of wife not able to get pregnant, facing fight and arguments almost every weekends now between my mother and wife, its affecting my new job. We are married for 3.5 years and my wife conceives and then thrice miscarriages and root cause analysis is not being told by any doctor.im mentally exhausted, what do i do just dont understand.
Perspective requested. 10 mths ago i was talking to an acquaintance (lives in IN, same age late 20s) and they were having a baby. I expressed my congratulations and during the convo said something like, ‘…here i can’t bring myself to adopt a pup and you’re prepared for such a big responsibility’. Everything’s cool. Present: (randomly) they remind me of this and say they understood my intent but want to teach me that I was culturally inappropriate. Thoughts?
How have you handled traveling as a cat parent? (FT/Drop-in sitter, duration, etc). I want to briefly drop in on both of my parents this summer but I don’t want to put my cat through x-country flights and so many fresh environments
Anyone neck deep in the Paycheck Protection Program? Trying to figure out if a parent can qualify for forgiveness of expenses (rent utilities) of an affiliate/subsidiary if only 1 loan is taken.
Just had my baby well wife did 😀 - happy Friday!
Last night I was looking through pictures on my phone. I was such a happy kid and young adult and even after joining the firm I’m at I was happy for 2ish years…..the past 4 have been awful and depressing though. Man I wish I could go back to that time and do things over.
Here’s a doozy that I will preface by saying that I am far from perfect and have my fair share of baggage. I’m late 40s, 2 HS aged children, divorced and remarried (married to current DH 6 years, met 12 years ago), he’s late 50s/early 60s. I’m miserable and think I’m married to a man-child. Here’s the story: -He was a bachelor before me (unmarried) despite being in his late 40s at the time -He was successful once. A long time ago. Before meeting me he dated a psycho who basically cleaned him out
My little girl now has an option of returning to school in-person through her spring break. My spouse is a high risk + extra careful when it comes to all things pandemic. I'm worried about my little kid's lost year & want her to go to school & interact with her friends, learn, etc. She's been home since March. Schools are being extra careful, maintaining all precautions, etc. But I can't convince my spouse to agree to this. Anyone else in a similar situation?
What is the best way to disinfect wood floors with a crawling baby? I use a Swiffer jet, but am not sure if that is enough. Thanks.
Baby girl had ear surgery a few months ago. Half her head was shaven. First groom session since her fur grew back a bit. The groomer got it all evened out! 🦊
Remember when Trump supporters were betting on Biden not showing up for debates? Yeah, not showing up for this debate would have been a big mistake. This man baby president with pea brain is the gift that keep on giving. Once didn’t look in the camera address Americans as their president. He Just stood there and insulted struggling Americans looking for answers for 90min and gave a nod to white supremacy. Just wow!
5 weeks until I move out away from my crazy mother. Pls tell me I can last another 5 weeks.
Very pregnant and getting everything in order for this new human! Any pro tips / tricks on how to tighten postpartum tummy without surgery? (These narrow hips never got the pregnancy boost, so I’ll need my waist back!)
We've got the city mini gt baby jogger stroller, and we just transitioned my 2 month old from car seat adapter in the stroller to just straight into the stroller. He really does not seem to be enjoying it - any suggestions or ideas as to why that might be?
I had a dream last night that was pretty complicated, but in it my wife was trying to convince me that it was okay for our daughter to die so we could survive and we would have another child. I was like "yeah... okay" but I was totally going to double cross my wife to save my daughter. Also - I think I now know what it feels like when my wife dreams I cheat on her.
Just started last week after mat leave and just don’t feel myself at work. I’m constantly thinking of my baby (he’s taken care of by a nanny) so in the same house - which leads to me getting distracted. I was considered a high performer but now the partner keeps telling me I have “mom” brain (which pisses me off but wtv). FWIW it’s true, and I truly couldn’t care less, which is very unlike me so I’m confused as hell.
Are baby swings worth it? Which ones?
Anyone else terrified to have kids? I’m a 4th year, married, just bought a house, my friends are starting to have kids, but the idea terrifies me. I think I want kids, but I didn’t have a great childhood and I’m pretty selfish and enjoy my sleep and alone time. I still feel like a kid a lot of the time and my husband and I have enough to argue about without adding a baby to the mix. I’ve always been the one to think about baby names but now that it’s coming time to think about kids I’m scared.

How does this sound?
How great would office emojis be in this app?
My company is now displaying!
My only face to face client meeting tomorrow at 10 AM is now cancelled. Call in sick and sleep till noon? #Blessed #BlessedAF
Shout out to that 1 client who gets how shitty being a consultant can be & defends you/your tasks during a project meeting verbal-gang-rape. The real MVP.
4 of our analysts packs their bags and proceeds to leave at 5:15, senior manager, walks by them and says: "huh, didn't know that the analysts were taking a half day today..."😂
Cat thread :)
There seriously needs to be a pre check line for the security after customs when you have a connecting flight
I can't wait until winter comes and delays every flight I will ever have to/from Chicago!
When you are in a hotel elevator with a group of people making fun of those stuck on low floors... Yup must be other consultants 😂
Boston Consulting Group what is the perception of the Knowledge team within BCG? What do they do there? Is it worth leaving big 4 Consulting to pursue a Knowledge Analyst role?
What time do you expect your staff to be in the office in the morning? These 2 keep coming in 910 and 930 when we agreed on 9 (which is generous).
I hate working in PWC. Can't wait till I start at Strategy& in September. The people at PWC do dummy body shop working but really think they work in consulting. A joke.
How many of you think your firm puts billability and clients before you and your family’s safety during covid-19 pandemonium? Is it fair to travel? Be in airports? Put yourself and family at risk?
If I’m looking to apply to a Strategy& role, does it make a difference if the person referring me is in a PwC group as opposed to a Strategy& group?
