Pink Blush Maternity. Got my bridal shower dress, 3 dresses to wear to various weddings and regular maternity clothes from there

A pea in the pod and rent the runway has some great maternity clothes without having to commit to buying

Have you tried A pea in the pod? I know they are sometimes in macys, so not sure if that’s where you went. I always thought they had nice stuff. Nordstrom has more high end maternity and I always thought Jessica Simpson also has a fun maternity line.

StitchFix got me great maternity wear, including the dress I wore to my shower. Just be clear with instructions for your stylist that you’re looking for dresses (or whatever else you might want). You only pay for what you keep.

Second pink blush maternity. Found some good ones on there

Agree - have gotten some cute stuff from pink blush!

Mine was a Zara wrap dress that I put a slip under. Maternity dresses are either overpriced or ugly so I was relieved something I love that I already had fit over my big belly. I’ve bought some dresses on pinkblush, ASOS and Misguided though that I like and can hopefully keep wearing post baby.

Yes to PinkBlush! I bought my maternity photoshoot dress from there too, along with maternity PJs (I was pregnant in the winter 😂).

Thank you ladies!!

I got mine on Shein

gap has some great capsule maternity clothes, I was pleasantly surprised when my order came. They’re currently 50% off right now too. Most of the dresses reminded me of the expensive stuff from Hatch I bought (nice but truly just too expensive to justify)

6 months pregnant and just laid off. And 40% of my severance was just taken in taxes .. I just spoke with paid family leave and I no longer qualify even though I had been paying into the program (thanks NY).. I already applied for unemployment but doctors are telling me I’ve got 10-14 weeks left in this pregnancy.. so stressed having twins and being unemployed, no maternity leave, no paychecks coming in, and I’ve been applying but not a single interview.. just ugh. 😭

First time pregnant here, I’m 26 weeks. I hear a lot about postpartum depression and I understand it could be coming from change of hormones and exhaustion.

Do you still go through it even with a positive mindset and help from your partner or family?

I need advice. A student at my worksite came to school with a gun. He’s a SPED kid, and administration did not inform anyone. I had to help the teacher and instructional aide deal with the incident.

529 Plan VERSUS Prepaid

We live in Florida and currently have a Freshman in High School and a 16 month old. We hear from our friends and family with college bound children "I wish we would have done Florida PrePaid." After obviously ignoring this for years, we are finally trying to do it before "it's too late" for both children.

Does anyone have recommendations on which plan to go with for each child? I once did the pros and cons on a whiteboard and it seemed like 529 was better.

Hello fellow HR pros! I really need your opinions on HR certifications. I am deciding between PHR and SHRM-cp. I have read just about all there is online comparing the two and can not decide. My heart is telling me PHR, my mother in law (an HRBP) is telling me to go with SHRM, as it’s more widely recognized, more established and a larger network in general. I work for a 350~ company who is growing rapidly through M&A. Passions/interests are compliance, strategic vision, M&A, branding and culture

Do you think all these violent and hate filled attacks are because people aren't getting the emotional/mental support they need, whether it's therapy at any age or help they needed but didn't get from a social worker as a child? My coworker is sure this is the case, but I honestly think there's actually something deeper wrong either with how these people are being raised as children, or how the warning signs these people give off are ignored or swept under the rug to save face.
