I make more than my bf by $16K. Since we are moving in together he said I should pay more rent & for utilities and groceries. Is this fair ?
One of my students is pregnant, any suggestions?
I really want to have another baby... Bio clock is running out. I have two kids in school, one with special needs. I'm already struggling to stay ahead with work and family responsibilities. I am afraid of how my team will respond if I tell them I'm pregnant or trying. Am I crazy for wanting another? Or crazy for letting my job get in the way of growing my family.
I searched this bowl and couldn’t find any existing threads (apologies if it exists and I couldn’t find it) but I wanted to know if anyone had any insights into estimates on total pregnancy and delivery medical bills in New York City. I’m finally pregnant 🤰🏼 .. after many yrs...and terrified of the costs at hospitals like Lennox hill and NYU. I have ok insurance from my employer but want to be financially and mentally prepared for the costs. Anyone have any insights and or obgyn recommends ?
I got a job referral!!! Please send me good vibes!! I need my career to have some momentum. I need to be able to purchase a house and get a grad degree. I’m trying to be the immigrant parents ideal child.
Do you have any recommendations for baby carriers - specifically for bigger babies? We have a baby bjorn, boba wrap, and ergobaby embrace, but it feels like they are getting small / tight for my big baby boy. For reference, he is already over 18lbs at 4mos. Would love something that would be comfy for him but also distributes weight well, as he will only get heavier 🤪 Thank you in advance!
38 weeks pregnant and for the past week have had (what I assume to be) sciatic nerve pain localized in my right buttocks. However, for the past 2 days, I haven’t been able to put any weight on my right leg and can’t walk. Did anyone else experience this to this severity? Did it go away with birth? I am being induced in a week but am terrified I won’t be able to walk/carry baby after they are born.
How many hours of sleep do you think you got during your third trimester?? I am 35 weeks and wake up every 2 hours to pee. (I know I’ll get less when baby comes 🙃) but just curious !
Should I keep my maternity clothes or sell/donate? I cannot decide. Have a one year old, close to 40yo and we’re not sure if we’ll ever have another one, likely not and agreed not to decide now but rethink in 1-2 years.
How would you handle this situation? My MIL is friendly and tries to be motherly towards me… giving life advice, wants to care for baby, asks lots of personal questions. I just don’t feel the same towards her mainly bc we are not aligned on values and she’s a big gossip so anything shared with her will be repeated. How do I maintain a good relationship with her while keeping her at arms length? We live in the same city.
Anyone have any experienced with the Mockingbird strollers for a FTM. Good / bad / otherwise?
I’m also looking at Nuna / Uppababy strollers / carseat combinations as well.
I’m likely going to be out and about with the baby alone and so looking for a setup that isn’t VERY heavy / hard to manage. I’ll also likely have a long baby if that changes your recommendation. TY
Hi! What's your favorite baby carrier? I have a boppy wrap carrier hybrid and I dont find it as easy to tie out by myself with the baby wriggling and he doesn't seem as comfortable. I am looking to buy an alternate baby carrier that is easy to use and comfortable. Fyi - baby is 4 months old.
I’m a product manager intern stepping in for a PM that went on maternity leave, so I really own a product lol. (Cheap labor, I know lol.) I’m struggling to create tickets and get my epics built out and get work cued up. As the tool is going through a backend re-arch changing APIs and stuff. My background is mechanical engineering and HW development… so endpoints, databases, etc. all of this is pretty new. Any resources or suggestions that you guys can point me to?
Any book recommendations for “disciplining” / mitigating 2 yr old tantrums or any books for having a second child?
Toronto folks- would love recommendations for where I can get good maternity wear around here without breaking the bank
Looking for perspective here! I’m worried that my ex is going to refuse to pay child support and take me to court over it. And I’m worried that somehow support won’t be given. In your collective experiences, do judges award child support in 50/50 custody cases if the husband makes more a good deal more income? My ex makes 60% of hhi and I make 40%, but live in a HCOL area so really need support to help pay rent. My lawyer says I can’t make the rent case because I can move somewhere cheaper.
Has anyone had experience trying to bring their parent to Canada permanently? I’m looking to move from Asia - just lost a parent, so need to find a way to stay with my other parent. how does the process work? TIA!
So I made it through the two week wait. Positive pregnancy test (hooray) now I’m nervous for the next 8 weeks of course.
Any recommendations on what not to do? I’ve been told I can exercise, have sex, and do all my normal activities, but I’m nervous. This is my first child, and my first positive pregnancy test. 36 years old. Any advice would be great. I know I’m prone to a miscarriage due to my hormone levels so I’m trying to be extra cautious.
Has anyone sold their baby's clothes online? What's a good site or app for that? How do you them: one piece at a time or bundled multiple pieces?
I’ve been at a new firm for a couple of months and feel incompetent half the time when I’m explaining something to my new boss. I’m a third year and am usually confident in my abilities, but I feel like a first year again and I’m unsure if it’s the new more specialized practice area, being uncomfortable in a firm where I’m the new kid, or if I’ve regressed practically. Someone tell me the discomfort of being new wears off semi-quickly.

Renegotiating after accepting an offer? My current employer has updated their offer to retain me well above the offer I accepted at my new employer. Previously they had only matched the new offer, which I declined. Would it be inappropriate to approach my new employer to match the offer? It’s 12 days before start date at new employer.

@Strategy &1 What happened when we sold the top of the megaphone pattern at 84. It went down 30 points, or $1500 a contract in less than 3 hours. It was really a prescient call. I don't see offering any good analysis that anybody can use. We made money multiple ways in this setup over the past 30 hours. What have you done?
Another mass shooting? Alright let’s send thoughts and prayers and then do nothing about it!

Seniors, what questions do you ask to new staff on your jobs to get to know them? Small talk topics of conversation for lunch, walking to grab coffee, etc.
I applaud those people that diligently track their monthly expenses in a spreadsheet, I don't even know how I deplete my checking every month....#broke......
You can always tell apart the new staff. They're the ones who are scared of getting hit by a car and stop before they cross the street. Everyone else wants to get hit.
