Another one who reads all the time but doesn't post very often. Future DS is doing well, kicking a little harder now but still haven't been able to feel him from the outside yet. Damn anterior placenta!! I'm 23 weeks today and my DH still hasn't managed to feel the baby
I've been having a bit of trouble with my boss, who has always been pretty good to me in the past, but now that I'm pregnant, he feels the need to be a complete a-hole for the sake of being an a-hole. He conveniently "doesn't recall" that he agreed to me being able to work 2 days a week from home when I return from my mat leave and I suspect he's limiting my options in an effort to push the pregnant lady out the door. Not really sure what to do about it for now but at least I have the next 15 months to think about it. It was never my intention to return to full time work, but financially we have a lot of plans that require me earning a full time income to achieve. Anyway, I'm sure we'll make do and work something out.
Hope the rest of you are faring a lot better with your bosses!

Teeny bopper- sad to hear the news about your boss, maybe get him to commit to things in writing and speak to fairwork about your rights?
I'm my own boss, I haven't applied for maternity leave yet, but will let myself know shortly
Sarah bubble grreat to hear the news on the SB front, you must be so relieved.
AFM- DP felt the baby move for the first time Sunday morning. It was awesome. Baby has super strong kicks at the moment.
I am into meditiation and thought of using it as pain relief/diversion during labour... Has anyone else used this method? Not opposed to the drugs either, just thought I'd keep my options open.

How was everyones weekends
Yip - im doing a calmbirth course, which Im pretty sure uses meditation and distraction techniques to cope with the pain.
Sarah - I have a low lying placenta as well. I wouldnt worry too much about it however we are planned to go into the birthcentre. Which if it stays low lying i will have to transfer to the public hospital and i just dont want to do that. So I am keeping my fingers crossed that it will all stretch and move away enough. Apparently though as yours is anterior, its more likely to move. Mine is posterior, so less likely but im keeping positive. Having a c-sect was something that I really only wanted to have in an emergency.
AFM - DH and I go to look at baby stuff every weekend and then dont end up buying anything. Its quite funny but we think we should be buying stuf and then just end up putting it back as we know we are just doing it for the sake of it. DS is measuring quite large so I dont want to go ahead and buy stuff that he wont end up fitting.
We do have all the large items
A large soft toy lol
Plus alot of bits and pieces that our friends have bought for us.
