I am thinking about having another baby. I have a 2 and a half year old boy. I am also going to be 41 next month. I had a really rough pregnancy the last time around and I’ll be 41 next month. Any mothers that had their kids after 40 with any advice?
Saw my neighbor walking with her kid in a stroller. She. got mail from her mail box, which included an Amazon box, and put it on her kids lap. Went in the house.
What are Slalom benefits on RRSP match and parental leave ( for a father) in Canada? Also, RRSP matching starts after probation ( after 6 months) for everyone?
My neighbor has parked two kid motorcycles in his spot (pic for reference). When he parks his two massive SUVs in the (2-car) spot, it’s very difficult to park my reasonably-sized car. Should I call him directly? The condo manager? I’m afraid they’ll key my car.
Just got pregnant. My baby supposed to come May 2022. I work at pwc and we have busy season Jan-March. I wanted to do my baby moon end of March and take a 2 week vacation. I m so scared to even ask HR if that’s okay. This is my first pregnancy btw. Has anyone ever done this? TIA
I had my 9 week scan today and everything went well - we saw the baby and heard the heartbeat. The doctor asked me to come in next week for the myriad prenatal blood test - is this common or is this because of my high bmi and PCOS? I checked with my insurance and looks like they won't cover it. Happy to hear from anyone else who has had this test done!
Hi Fishes, This might probably a stupid question, but I want to get it clarified. Lets say to save taxes, I am transferring a certain amount as rent along with rental agreement to my parent's to claim hra excemption. Would I be able to transfer this amount from my parent's account to my account back again? Will income tax trace these transactions as well?

How do you feel about your firm's benefits package, on retirement (401K), PTO, parental leave, and health insurance? Curious to see whether and how you think your firm needs to make adjustments.
I'm really tired of trying to make my career work, and being a parent, and make my marriage work. I'm so stressed out and miserable. I wish I could just quit but there's also debt.
So not a “kid question” but still need to ask. I know the stereotype is once you’re married and have kids that the sex drive drys up but I’m curious how often people are having sex with their SO
My best friend's sister is pregnant with her first child (a baby boy)! Can anyone share gift recommendations- perhaps reasonably ( max $80) priced items new mothers would find helpful to use daily or often?
What would you choose? MBB (Digital practice) or Amazon PMT? Background: T15 MBA student, 7YoE as Mech engineer, long term goal is to climb ladder in Tech, married and have a baby Situation: I have a MBB and Amazon PMT offer for summer internship that I need to choose. MBB comes with FT offer, Amazon PMT will most likely result in return offer. If I go with MBB, I plan to exit to big Tech in 2-3 years. Y1 TC for both will be quite similar (around 230k). Thank you in advance!
My dog was diagnosed with cancer today. He went through extensive medical tests in September and he was fine and now the cancer has reached his lungs and come too far for us to doing anything about it. He is my first child I can’t handle this pain. He will have 6-8 weeks at best.
18 weeks pregnant (1st time) and have always been an active/fit person workingout 5x/wk cardio/treadmill and some weight lifting. I've toned down my workout routine since I found out I'm preg as I got 2 v diff advice from the NP I first saw then the OB/GYN herself. NP warned of exercising as this should not be my priority now (which I agree) he warned from any running/or weight lift (were talking 40-70 lbs). Ob was so flexible about it and said I can maintain my routine as long as not exhausted.

Hello Fishes, MBA/MarkOps-IIM I have recently joined workforce in an ecommerce retail(yo 5 Months) in India as Category manager and have been looking for switching. Would you people advise to switch considering this is my first job and the work seems to be quite of not the taste i was expecting. Initially It felt challenging and now it feels like a run of the mill. For compensation I feel I am overly underpaid too considering the same post in another firm. Please suggest!

Should I have a second child? I met my husband later in life at 37 yo. We had our first when I was 39. I thought I was good with just one as I was never someone who really wanted kids but I know my husband would love to have another and now that I have one I think about her having a sibling. I’ll be 41 in March so we need to start now. I love the ease and flexibility of one child and she’s been such good baby. I’m worried that if we have another I’ll regret it. I’m also about to start a new job.
What age were some of you able to clear $1M all in NW? Turning 30 next month and that was my 10 year goal coming out off school but in reality will be 50% short of that milestone. Still happy with what i’ve been able to accomplish, but sounds like i need to recalibrate my own expectations after this realization. for context: no student debt, 50k salary for a year, unemployed for a year, 60k salary for 3 years, 120k blended for the last 2 years. hoping to fire by mid 40s with 2.5-5M is the goal
9 months ago, I posted on this app that I was leaving FAANG for MBB. Every single responder discouraged me from doing it given worse WLB, less pay per hour worked, etc. I’m here to say that you were all correct. Every single one of you. I would go back in an instant if I could.
Can my spouse and I have two separate green card applications? My employer is filing mine and we are are in the perm stage (I have a an approved i-140 from a previous job) and I will be using the cross-charging rule for the final stage. For my spouse it would be either through their employer or the GC lottery and they would just start the process now. What are the pros and cons of having multiple applications? Anyone have experience with this?

How do I get off a project without potentially getting laid off? Joined the firm 3 months ago, but my project is terrible.

Across all levels at Big4, how does salary compare between Australia and Canada? I've got 3.5 YOE at Deloitte (internal transfer into consulting, expecting ~$80 - $85 at Consultant).
