I’m in a rather peculiar situation. I have been in the HR field going on 4 years, I have over 11 years of management experience, I got my PHR last year and I recently graduated with my MBA with a concentration in HR this month. I am ready for a more challenging role. However, there doesn’t seem to be much available at my current company. However, I am going on 5 months pregnant with the expectation of being out in October. I feel like once I mentioned my pregnancy I was in a holding pattern.
I might try to get pregnant next year. I’d like to get some genetic testing done beforehand to see if baby will be prone to certain conditions/illnesses. I am not aware of anything wrong with my or my husband’s family history but it will give me peace of mind.
Which one do you recommend? My insurance plan sucks, so something that has a decent price with no insurance would be great. Thanks.
A colleague of mine is struggling with a student who screams, cries, and throws fits when it is time to complete tasks. They have created behavior charts with something fun to work towards: it doesn’t work. They have called the parent and they just cry and say that they experience the same issue and they don’t know how to fix it. They have reached out to guidance and all they can say is “sorry, the child isn’t hurting themselves or others. It’s frustrating and I can’t help you.”
Hi! Have any pregnant moms gotten covid recently and encountered loss of smell/taste? If so, how long did it last? Asking for a 4m pregnant friend who is vaxxed/boosted but in the thick of COVID right now.
I can barely work when im on my period from the fatigue how do pregnant women do it I am in awe and honestly scared for when I get pregnant 😅
Has anyone cut your parents out of your life (completely cut out: no phone call, no Family meeting, like strangers)? How long? regret or not? I moved out and didn't want to look back, but I don't feel better. I am still crying and angry so much...why did they give me a life with child trauma? Even now, I'm past 30 and taking meds but still in pain
In my third trimester (8 weeks left) and feeling so overwhelmed by impending motherhood. I’m trying to absorb as much information as possible, have taken a birth class, Tinyhood classes, read articles and parts of parenting books etc and still feel utterly unprepared. I consider myself a quick learner but I can’t shake this feeling that I have no clue what I am doing. also stressing over things like, what if our dogs don’t like the baby? How do I calm my anxiety :(
I’m 8 weeks pregnant and have thrown up every day the past two weeks. I know it will peak over the next few weeks and hopefully will get better after that but working is so hard when I feel like this. Any words of encouragement or advice to help get through this if you dealt with this?
I took a 3 mo. maternity leave this year. My firm calculates bonuses based on the amount of collectibles over the course of the calendar year with a minimum collectibles amount in order to qualify for a bonus. How have you women dealt with this? Obviously it’s difficult for me to meet my collectibles requirement for a year when I only will have worked for 9 months. Have any of you requested that the minimum collectibles/billables amount be prorated? Any other suggestions/thoughts? Thanks!
With the new Texas law labeling gender affirming surgery as child abuse, is circumcision classified that way as well?
What can legally be asked for maternity leave? My sister got a big packet of questions involving questions about her pregnancy, medications she’s on, etc., from her HR dept to be “approved” for leave. Feels wrong. I have not had to give them anything other than dates for my two leaves.
so I shouldn’t be annoyed but someoen asked me at a park if my kid is mine. My son is half white and looks white. It’s always my fear that people will think that i’m his nanny.
So I’m on a milk donation group because donor moms (love them!) have helped with milk for my baby. Of late I see a lot of posts as below - def okay with personal preference of the donor meds and vaccines but each person spells it out differently like “no c v*x” etc. is this a thing? I feel like they’re addressing lord Voldemort
Hi moms! Between you and your spouse how many books do you read to your child per week? It’s been a struggle to get my spouse to help with this and I am so drained at the end of the day with work and housework I can only get through 1 book a day if any… averaging maybe 4 books a week? I feel terribly guilty bcuz I feel like this is not normal and we’re slacking parents 😭
I originally joined this bowl years ago when my husband had to have chemo and I thought we were going to be heading down the IUI/IVF route. We ended up getting pregnant naturally and are done having our own. For the last 6 months, I’ve been seriously considering being a surrogate and got the OK from my OBGYN last week. Those of you looking for a surrogate, what are the top 3 things you desire with one and what are your deal breakers?
Did yall hear about the Chicago mom who had her kid taken away because she wouldn't accept that her child was transgender? As a parent, that's actually kind of scary that the government would that with no basis of abuse or neglect. Smh
Working moms, why are we not accommodated FULLY for nursing breaks? My last employer allowed break accommodations for me to nurse my child, but my current employer does not. They state that they do not offer break accommodations for nursing moms bc federal law only says that we are allowed to have an extra unpaid break for nursing. Still, bc I am not salary, it means that I would need to make up the time I took for an extra break at the end of my shift = longer days in the office. Currently ...
So weird I don’t remember joining this bowl (or why) but my new therapist recommended an ADHD assessment. I’ve been researching symptoms and can relate to a LOT of them (as a child and adult). I’m conflicted because I can stay organized when I track my daily routine (been using my daily planner consistently for 2 months yay) and I’m able to focus using Pomodoro technique. How do you differentiate b/w “normal” forgetfulness, time management issues, etc vs ADHD?
Any mama fish went up for promotion during pregnancy (and maternity leave)? How did you feel in the new role after coming back from leave?
As a manager of a restaurant, how is it best to address parents with screaming babies/children given that it is not a kid-encouraged establishment? The parents were oblivious to proper etiquette and other guests complained making the parents of the screaming baby wildly offended. How does management appease all parties? Or is it best to protect the masses?
