Looking for general advice on my financial situation.
Hi mamas, FTM here. How do you trust and buy plastic toys on Amazon? What do you look for? I am paranoid about chemicals or anything toxic in toys given I was told babies lick everything. For e.g. I saw this in the highly recommended list of things to buy and product has great reviews and ratings. However, there is a comment which says ca proposition warning, this is not safe. Any tips for a paranoid mom please. https://www.amazon.com/598701-Baby-Crinkle-Square-Sensory/dp/B07D5ZYQD7
I recently had my first baby and I’m trying to be as practical as possible, I did not get a bunch of baby stuff I just got the essentials, I think they sell you too much unnecessary things. I do appreciate people showing affection with gifts but feel kids now a day are over gifted. Would it be taken wrong if I suggest that for birthdays and Christmas instead of toys people deposit whatever they were going to spend in my baby’s 529 account?
Anyone in ny market do per diem work if so what type of work and what do you charge and what practice level are you at?

Hi ladies. I’m 11 weeks pregnant and have been suffering from morning sickness all day every day for the last 5 weeks. It’s been extremely difficult staying on top of everything at work (I’m in a very busy practice group at Kirkland) and am wondering if anyone has gone through this and if anything helped. I’ve tried all of the conventional methods (eating small meals, vitamin B6, ginger etc) but nothing has worked 🥺.

I got an offer from Thoughtworks GGN as a lead consultant. Being a mother, I have anxiety about joining TW, since it is service based.
1. Bcoz of the recession and hiring is not for specific project, is it the right time to join TW or is it risky w.r.t job security?
2. How flexible is TW for WFH or it depends on the client?
3. How is WLB?
Last week I was given amazing news that I was pregnant. Today, after my repeat blood work results, I was told my HCG levels aren’t rising adequately. I am crying in the bathroom stall at work.
SO beyond frustrated with my work environment I think it may be time to leave for good. I returned from maternity leave after 4 years of working at my very old-school, boys club, nepotism-friendly company. The number of remarks I got on my appearance, my pregnancy and etc was a little annoying before I left, but since I've come back it's been nothing but comments on how they can't believe I'm leaving my husband home with the baby etc. Sorry for the long post just needed to vent!!

I got an offer for Deloitte as a new consultant.
I applied for EY and PwC for business transformation and management consulting respectively.
My offer for Deloitte expires soon. I emailed both firms on yesterday politely asking if there's an update.
The thing is I'm more attracted to PwC/EY lines i applied to.
Has anyone heard back from these firms? I don't want to burn any bridges w/ Deloitte by accepting and then decline if a better off comes along.
I just finished up an internship and want to start sending my book out to CDs in NY to land my first full-time gig. I’d love to get this bowl’s feedback first though!

I had to rollover my roth ira from American Century to Vanguard, i had 100% of my portfolio in American Centurys TWCGX fund and sold 3k to of that to invest in Vanguards VIGAX.
Currently i am maxing the roth ira with bi-weekly contributions to VIGAX and just leaving TWCGX as is. Should i sell all of TWCGX and buy into VIGAX or leave it as is without investing any more money into that fund? TWCGX averages 13% returns since inception (but no automatic contributions allowed) whereas VIGAX is 8%

With that salary and minimal expenses I'd certainly consider maxing out hsa and all retirement accounts if you haven't already. You can contribute to hsa directly if you payroll contributions don't get you to the family max, I believe up to the earlier of 4/15/21 or when you file your taxes.
Just looking for some general advice, primarily on what to do with the cash. Interested in putting more money in the market but just would like to know a good approach. ￼￼
6 months is too short a time horizon for equities. Just leave it in a “high yield” savings account where you’ll get a few bucks a month. Any savings you build from staying at your in-laws could go into retirement and 529 plan.
Yes, if you intend to buy a house within a year, I’d just keep it in an HYSA. If you’re anything like me, after a few months of living with either my parents or my in-laws, I’d be desperate to move into our own house ASAP!
