8 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Accepting a New Job

My baby is measuring 2 weeks ahead. Does this mean I will deliver early?

Video taken from the channel: IntermountainMoms

If you only have six weeks off, leaving work before or at your due date will run down the clock at a time when you might not yet have your baby. If you go two weeks overdue, that leaves you only four weeks with your baby. She may not be old enough to start daycare if you plan to go back to work, so you may wind up taking two weeks of unpaid leave. It is important you review your work’s maternity leave policy before making these tough decisions about time away from work.

Ultimately, choosing to stop working early is up to you and what is right for your family. Just keep in mind there may not be a medical reason for me to excuse you from work if your pregnancy is normal and healthy. There are also federal laws. Labor induction increases the risk that your uterine muscles won’t properly contract after you give birth (uterine atony), which can lead to serious bleeding after delivery.

Inducing labor is a serious decision. Work with your health care provider to make the best choice for you and your baby. Share; Tweet; May 01, 2020. My story is one reason why you shouldn’t work up until your due date. You don’t want to even come close to giving birth in a cubicle, with all of your coworkers gathered around.

Imagine your boss. How Is My Due Date Determined? Normally, your due date is 280 days (40 weeks or about 10 months also known as 10 lunar months) from the first day of your last period. With my first kid, I worked from home starting the week before my due date, just in case.

Yeah, I got bored. Yes, I was working, but I was. Others choose a “last day” in advance in order to have a break before their due date, or make arrangements to work from home in the final days. We asked the new moms on our message boards for their take on leaving the office, and here’s what they had to say: “I worked until the very end. My water started to leak while I was at work!”.

The second you see a positive pregnancy test result, it’s only natural to start doing the math to figure out the delivery date. After all, it’s handy to know how much time is left before. I was glad, I was so tired.

Ds was born on his due date via c-section. I’m 20 weeks now with my second and it looks like I’m having a scheduled c-section at 39 weeks, so I’ll work until that point. I don’t know how elementary teachers do it.

I’m not the kind of math teacher who sits all day, but I’m also not chasing 20-30 little kids either, lol. Don’t do what I did and work on your due date. First labours can be very, very long (35 hours in my case) and as you don’t know exactly what day baby is going to arrive, it’s best to play it safe and be well rested before the drama starts!!

Explain that being allowed to set your own pace at work may make your pregnancy more comfortable (this kind of stress seems to increase the risk of backaches and other painful pregnancy side effects) and help you do a better job.

If you don’t want to stop working entirely during the last few weeks of your pregnancy, why not see if your employer would be willing to have you work on a part-time basis?

Deciding, while you’re still pregnant, whether you’ll stay home or go back to work (and when) after baby is born is like choosing between a job you’re familiar with and one you know nothing about.

  • I am 32 weeks.. but my baby is measuring and weighing 34 weeks.. does it means that I am having early delivery ma’am plz reply…����

  • This was so informative and very reassuring. I am 29 years old and have just been diagnosed with igAn and my husband and I were trying to conceive and got a tad scared by our nephrologist that having children might no longer be a possibility. I am very thankful to have seen this presentation the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. Thank you!!

  • This is so true. There were cameras outside the hearing office and also inside the waiting room. My ALJ here in Houston called an internist during my hearing for a severe case of cellulitis that I’ve had for two years. This doctor had never seen me before, but I had pictures that were very graphic. Thankfully, he found me disabled and the judge agreed. The judge actuallyasked to see my leg during the hearing and I gladly showed him, so that’s impossible to fake. LOL I’m a 60-year-old former legal secretary. Thanks for all your wonderfully informative videos, sir. You have been very helpful to so many people!!!

  • Your commentary on disability cases is right-on. I had to dress & coach my husband so that he could win his appeal for well-deserved disability. Most upsettingly, I also had to coach his attorney who did not prepare for his case until the day before.

    So, years later when it became my turn, I decided to get my disability immediately based on my application. I filled out the form completely & had my medical records in order to send with the application fully annotated.
    I waited six months only to find out the VA was not validating my claims. I got on them & My SSDI was approved a month later. I
    am leaving this comment so that everyone knows: your claim is based on you. Your lawyer is not a magician. Do it right the first time and you may not have to pat an attorney $8,000!

  • So if I hold a put option through expiration and I’m in the money, does it convert over as a short? Like if it keeps going down after expiration am I still making money?

  • what if my doctor does not want to fill out a RFC form and or is reluctant to support my disability claim i understand this is common what do i do

  • so i just bought a call, expire in like 2 years, if the stock went up 100% after 2 years and i hold the option through the expire date, what will happen? can you do a video on this?

  • I need some advice quick! I have a put option that expires this Friday out of the money. I can’t sell it because the option is selling at 5 cent increments, and its at 3 cents today. This is on Robinhood. Can somebody tell me what might happen on Friday?

  • I just had my obgyn appointment not that long ago, and she measured my fundus height. Now mind you I’m only 35 weeks and 4 days, and I’m already measuring 40 weeks/40cm. My husband is 6 feet, his weight at birth was over 9lb. I was only 7lb. I’m not diabetic or have any thing genetically wrong. My obgyn already schedule an ultrasound for me. With me 5 weeks away from my due date and measuring so big, should I be concerned?

  • what happens if my baby is extremely small? growth wise my baby is growing fine BUT the AC is dropping on the chart. it was on the 10th percentile now the third….

  • bs… I delivered my son 12 years ago @ 37 weeks pregnant 7lbs 12oz and he was perfectly fine. never sick and is an honor roll student now. only God knows our birth and death dates! science is just an hypothesis.

  • Hey folks, great to have you here and I hope you enjoy the video. This is such an important topic and it’s vital at the end of the interview process to ensure you’re making a wonderful, objective decision. Lemme know what you think and make sure to subscribe for new videos weekly on Live Office Hours on Thursdays!

  • I was seen by a consultive provided by SS. According to this evaluation, I am disabled but they denied it anyway. I continued with my TX for my mental issues and it has been three years already. I had my hearing three weeks ago. I am still weating for the answer.

  • I arrived 15 minutes early, they made me wait 90 minutes (spy on me much? Lol).
    I made the doc read my 4 MRIs before he laid a hand on me…Friendly old doc said ‘youre in pretty bad shape for a young guy’
    I said ‘well, make sure thats reflected in your report “…..I recorded the visit,

  • Hey Andy, I’ve been following your channel for a couple of months, trying your techniques, and I’ve had great success. Right now it’s 3.40 am, in New Zealand and I have two offers on the table. Both are excellent jobs, both with excellent total rem, and both have great advancement opportunities. This clip was very timely, I was able to run through your 8 questions, use them as a check list for due diligence. Most I had answered myself already, but I took great comfort in knowing I was on the right track.

  • Think this through. Company and the market and ya organization are they a leader. Do they have plans to catch the leader? Is there a demand? Will there always be a need?Product and service is there a need and a demand? Can we get behind the product? Is the unit vital and is it a strategic mark in the company? Why is the position open? Did they vacate did they leave for a better job did they leave cuz the boss was a psycho? Favorite questions if I was to take this job what does success looks like in a year from now? How committed are they to your area? How much time do I get? Are they paying training? What is there time line? Is it reasonable? Risks? Risk profile risk plan. Risks we cannot control.

  • Hey Andy, I would love to have your advice on this. I recieved a job offer today and theu kept telling the job was going to be super stressful and hard. I don’t know if I should say yes because I have issues with stress. The interviewer also started yelling at his secretary in the middle of the interview. Huge red flag.. but i really need money right now.

  • the truth ssi is taken from your check congress uses it and has said on record that ssi is broke. the government doesn’t want you to live long to get ssi and nor do they really give a dam if u are hurt or what ever.. American goverment is crooks and will give to illegals ssi and food stamps and so on fast. but a American either gets denied or goes on for years.. i believe its a big con job..

  • lately, I watched several videos about job interviews, recruiting, career etc. They all sound about the same. Andy is the only one I found that actually has some legitimate insight and depth. This video is yet another example.

  • I went to the disability doctor the first time. I could not stand up straight and could barely walk. So he put me on the table and proceeded to push my left leg almost to my head and then he pushed it out to my side. The pain was unbearable. I expressed how much pain it caused. He did send me to have an MRI. After the MRI, it was determined that I needed surgery to fix the back issue at L5-S1. I did not have the money to pay for surgery. I had to wait to hear from the disability judge. I got a disk from the Social Security office with the doctor’s report from my visit. His remarks were 100% inaccurate. He stated that I had a normal gait with no stability issues. This was a complete lie. Said that I had minimum pain and basically was in fair condition. The results of the MRI showed spinal stenosis, degenerative issues and other problems as well. I had the Laser Spine Institute in Florida review my MRI and they determined that I needed surgery as well. When the meeting with the judge came around, he “looked” at the reports and said that he wanted me to see another disability doctor again. I was scheduled to see their doctor again. My lawyer said that it would be a different doctor. But it wasn’t. It was the same exact one who lied on the first report. He didn’t even stand up or ask me to sit on the examine table. He asked me why was I back to see him again. I told him I was following the judge’s request and that I was wondering the same thing. He never examined me at all. Didn’t ask any questions. He said that he would make some additional notes and send those in. Once I got a copy of that report, it was the exact same as the original. No new remarks or anything. The entire ordeal was a joke. The nurse even said that she remembered me from my first visit. Stating that she saw that I could barely stand or walk. The judge granted me a partial disability with the idea of getting surgery to “fix” my back and then re-evaluate my case. I had a new MRI done a couple of weeks ago. The new surgeon said that if my results were the same as the one in 2016, that I would not need surgery. He said that all I needed was injections. Then a couple of days later, I get a call that he wants me to do physical therapy. I completely disagree with the surgeon. When does a judge get the new information about the new MRI or doctor’s reports? Do they usually actually go back and review the new reports and cut off the disability payments? How does the re-evaluation process work?

  • What happens if you are holding an option, like an SPY S&P 500 Call option that expires this Wednesday on 3-25 and you hold onto it until the expiration day and all of the sudden after 3pm it turns profitable as stock prices start moving around wildy.

    Would you just have to let it expire in the money and be assigned? You couldn’t sell to close with only an hour left on it could you?

    And yes, I subscribed = >

  • Hi, thanks for the video. What happens if I don’t close my put Option Through the Expiration Date? My short Put strike price is 760 and the stock price is 930. In my profile, it shows a negative profit now and the expiration date is 17June.

  • I now understand why the idiot consulting doctor at the review said being romberg might be the cause of my balance problems dispute the neurosurgeons and physical therapists and ENT doctors specializing in balance problems saying otherwise. That idiot doctor made me go through a hearing because they tried to drop my ssi. I won the hearing.

  • I love how some people jump to the defense of these doctors but most of them are unprofessional. One admitted it on an early post that she does not care what happens and what she really meant was I am going in with a negative attitude. They literally negates any good advice you gave. I saw SSI Consult Monday and he literally ripped me apart for having two different types of inhalers. He would not let me explain that one was for a serious asthma attack if I ever had it again. The other was to try prevent me from having another one. This absolute bullshit and I have a second SSI CE Consult today.

  • I use Tastyworks (Web site) for a few months now and love it. but I don’t know how to convert a call that I bought to stock. the example I bought a call of AMD with a strike price of $80 for Sept 18. I want to own that call or convert to actual stock. how do I do that? tastytrade seems to want me to do a new limit order or purchase at the current market of $84.50.

  • I keep reading and hearing about this whole “breaking out a measuring tape to measure fundal height,” but my doctor has literally never done this. He keeps going off of what the ultrasound tech says, e.g. measuring 2-3 weeks ahead, and he seems to be leaning toward induction. I don’t want to be induced, especially since I haven’t had any complications so far. I’m currently 35 weeks.

  • Great video! Quick question.
    What happens if I allow to expire while above strike price but I am at a loss. (Is that even possible?)

  • Just did a SSA psych and physical eval I thought when doctors said “give your best effort” that was funnylike people give their “best” effort everyday at a 9-5 job?
    The doctor I saw for the physical eval was rather a senile old lady, and in my observance I seem to be her first SSA exam. She was checking things that have no real bearing on work functionality, but what-ever. In general, the tests didn’t test even the slightest endurance. I made sure to make mention of my issues.I do agree about being honest, but the physical tests seem to be lacking a test of endurance. Psch eval went without trouble, doc was pretty cool. Good luck folks 😉

  • Just a word of feedback. Most beginners to options can more easily grasp the concept of call options. Puts simply come off more confusing to us. I am tempted to turn off a video talking about shorting puts. Just one man’s opinion. Keep it simple especially for the beginners

  • Hi,

    Currently, I am long SNAP $19 Put (Exp 1/15/2021) and short SNAP $14 Put (Exp 5/1/2020). My buying power (cash) is less than $1,400. No cash collateral has been set aside to cover possible $14 Put assignment. I use Robinhood.

    If I am assigned on the $14 Put, I do not want to sacrifice (exercise) my $19 Put. Rather, I would like to long 100 SNAP shares and pay up with $1,400 cash. How much time will Robinhood allow me to deposit the cash if, at the time of assignment, my account does not have at least $1,400 of buying power? I understand that transfers may take a few days. If I deposit cash on the day of the assignment, will I be allowed to buy 100 SNAP shares for $1,400 using my own cash that will arrive in a few days?

  • When I got sick I went to two of “their” Drs and they both stated in their reports that I should not work anymore and they still denied me. I had to go to ALJ and the vocational expert did not say a thing. I got approved but every state is different and some are more difficult than others.

  • What Caught my attention. You’re shares aren’t delivered till Monday at market open?

    So your actual expiration is Monday. With a trading lockout window of 200pm till Monday at open.

    So unless you like buying high into weekend gapdowns you would almost never allow a short put to expire. There simply no way to control the risk.

  • Excellent demo! I am switching to Canvas in the Fall. This is an excellent feature that allows changing due dates for multiple assignments at once.Couldn’t do this with BlackBoard or Moodle. Thank you!

  • I remember when i first found out last december I went to a womens resource center and I was told i was 14 weeks pregnant. Then i found my current Midwife and they determined that i was actually 17.5 weeks pregnant.

  • What happens when short leg expires in the money but the long leg expires out of the money? Say a sold a put credit spread (sold $100 put, bought $90 put; $1,000 collateral). Then at expiration, underlying stock is at $99, and I am obligated to buy 100 shared at $100/share. Then after hours, the underlying stock drops to $80. Do I still have the protection from my long put (ability to sell 100 shares at $90/share)? When and how would I be able to close my long 100 shares? After hours? Next trading day? Would Robinhood let me have negative buying power until next trading day?
