Just giving a bit of Gyan to fellow fishers Please please do not ever use CTC comparison between current and next company. If you get an offer, do an in hand calculation. Some companies add Retirals like Employer PF, Gratuity along with Insurance, furniture allowance as part of your CTC. Others don't. Sone also have higher variable package. So when you do a CTC delta you may get a 20% hike but when you discount the above things you will fall short and may end up making less. So choose wisely.

We are at 33 weeks and baby is measuring on the smaller side (17th percentile overall). The stomach is measuring at 8th percentile and wife’s fluids are “on the lower side of normal”, both of which are a bit concerning.
