Suggestions for maternity suits?
Birth plans: how detailed was yours? I haven’t written mine (yet), but I really don’t feel that picky about it. Is that weird? I’m hoping to go in, use the lessons from my coordinated pushing workshop, and at some point get an epidural. I am hoping for a natural birth but if baby is in distress or something goes wrong, I’m open to a c-section (I was a c-section baby and the most important thing to me is that baby is born healthy). Am I missing something? How specific was your birth plan?

How do couples share dining out expenses ? Before my current relationship I was happy to go 50:50. My current boyfriend easily has 4 drinks with a meal (I have one) and, being a big guy, eats at least twice of what I eat. For me an entree is enough. He likes to order multiple appetizers and desserts and eat them all. I want to say I will just pay for mine but I feel unsure how this looks.
Are you still afraid of catching COVID?
I have encountered a couple of racist clients this year. Is this because of remote work? The incidence of racial bias seems to be higher.
Moms- need advice. I joined a new firm this year and I’m pregnant. I’m completely overworked, adjusting to tons of life changes, and considering trying to leave to industry after mat leave. I don’t think I can do this with a newborn; I can barely do it now. Those of you who stuck with consulting and had babies at more junior levels, how did you do it? Is there a light at the end of this tunnel? I’m so miserable. Also, considering therapy / some kind of career coach to help me cope.
I am 15 weeks pregnant and around 3 PM everyday I am exhausted. I power through on weekdays but I am so tired in the weekends. When do I get my energy back 😩😩😩
A friend just kicked out of dental school because she refuses to get the COVID-19 vaccine. She claims her family has suffered “adverse affects” from the vaccine and is afraid to get it. What have you done to convince someone you love to get the vaccine? I hate watching her throw away her career because of something as trivial as getting a vaccine.
Been working towards promotion, 8 months now. Have check in coming up but also pregnant. Not sure i can hide it much longer but scared if i say anything will hinder promotion. Feeling stuck, thoughts?
A bit perplexed on how to feel after event that took place last night. We’re out to dinner for my boyfriend‘s dad‘s birthday and just after we order dinner, his parents hand each of the siblings an envelope. After a few minutes it became clear each envelope had 30k, plus several hundred in random gift cards. I grew up pretty well off but this is not something my parents would ever do. Am I weird to be thrown off by this or is getting help from parents as an adult not as uncommon as I thought?
Friendly reminder to please stop telling your female coworkers that don’t want children “to just wait a few years - you’ll change your mind”. 😡
I'm now 6mo into parenting a wonderful and much loved and wanted baby girl. And even with all of the privilege of paid leave, excellent healthcare coverage, and an incredibly supportive and caring partner, this has been hard af. It's one thing to feeling make the decision to risk your life and endure all of the hardship, trauma and permanent body changes that this entails for a wanted child. But the idea of forcing someone through pregnancy and birth, with no support, is so incredibly horrific
I just wanted to take a quick moment to say that you are all doing a great job with this ridiculous, unprecedented juggling act of trying to be a parent, teacher, lawyer and human. Hang in there!￼
I’m pregnant! Just want to share because I’m so excited. Also, it took only 2 months at 35...everyone’s journey is different but I wish I hadn’t bought into the fear-mongering bs.
Ladies I just found out my partner cheated on me and got another girl pregnant. Not only was he lying to me but he was using my house! I am tempted to name and shame him on social media. Talk me off the ledge
Beyond 2 lines the text in each post card is cut off. I wonder how many lines in the comment section?

Anyone else use head shots for their LinkedIn profiles? I feel like clients take a look at this stuff more and more.
Aisle or window?

So, my best friend is giving me so much shade for "being in business (so many unethical people) and "how I get to travel every week while she barely affords grad school" - what can I do?
Anyone else worried about flying all the time with all the madness in the world? How do you handle it?

Do you all spend much time and money furnishing your apartment? Just moved into a new place and I'm torn. I'm never there but at the same time it'd be nice to have a cozy refuge to come home to.
I trust the cracked out hobo outside my apartment more than the mute button on Skype/Lync.
