Congratulations.....Wow Heidi that is huge! Will you have been working long enough to qualify for paid parental leave? I think personally 3 kids are awesome, so much so that 4 seemed perfectly logical to us. How do you feel about it? I can only imagine how much that would throw things when you are getting a relationship back on track. Some things are just meant to be!

Not much news with us here except the offer we put in on the house on Thursday was accepted. So all going well we will be moving in 2 months. I can't wait, it's in a new area, house is only 4 years old and there are loads of young families nearby and it's a street that really embraces Christmas  biggrin.gif  now crossing my fingers our old house sells in next couple of weeks, not keen to be a landlord.

That's Terrific Ally About the house & sounds like a really lovely area you will be moving to.

Unfortunately by the time baby is due i will only be there 9mths.... I wasn't pregnant when i went for the interview, however i was when i started the job. But i did not know until Sunday, which was 3wks later. I am on a 3mth probation, so i have decided to wait to tell them until that has finished. Not sure what i will tell them, but thinking along the lines of that i didn't know when i started the job & that i wanted to wait until i was over 12wks to make sure everything was good first. That i need the job & i like working there so i didn't want to jepordise that. I am hoping that even knowing i won't be able to apply for maternity leave that they may consider keeping me on after the baby is born. If they can offer me a baby position i could return to work 2-3mths after baby is born.

Chirs was a little taken back by the "accident" but i think his coming around. He said last night "Well you can't plan everything. I know the girls were planned, but somethings just happen." Then he started discussing Boy names.

Really hoping for a boy this time, would make the accident more worth while IYKWIM?

They can't fire you because you are pregnant, as that would be discrimination, so you should be fine! What a bugger you fall a bit short in regards to PPL!

Hi Everyone, thought its probably about time that I popped in for a hello. so much news going on in here.

Amber - congrats again on twins. Still wow... As for how much work.. meh, all babies are lots of work, things will work out.

Ally - congrats on #4 and how exciting that you're buying a new house. Good luck packing, unpacking & moving whilst pregnant with 3 kids.

Heidi - wow, what a whoops!! Good to hear that chris is coming around to the idea. Perhaps after this bub is born you'll need to look into contraception that doesn't hinder sex drive. But I'm hearing ya.. As for work, Ally's right, they can't fire you for being pregnant. However, if you're willing to go back after 2-3 months then that will certainly be favorable. Fingers crossed they have a spot for the new bub in the babies room. How are you enjoying the role of Teacher in this CCC? Must be different and exciting compared to a Diploma role.

As for us, still plodding along here. Am in my final year of uni now with only 4 academic subjects left and then my final internship before I qualify as a teacher. Seems to have gone so fast, but gees its been a hard slog.

Rachael's loving school & enjoys the different roles that they are given each week. Liam's really flourished socially and emotionally this year and is starting to form friendships and play interactively well at preschool. He's more than ready to go to school next year original.gif

Hi Mel,

Actually being the teacher is much the same job i was doing before as i was the room leader in my other positions. But this is far less stressful as i am not also supervisor & this centre runs by the regulations. So nothing to really stress over.

Wow almost finished your Degree, almost a teacher!!!! Congrats to you, it is such hard work! I still have the 2 subjects i am doing now, then another 2 next session & finally another prac & i will 3yrs trained. If i want to continue to 4th year it will take me another year- 6 subjects.

Wow Mel, uni seems to have gone really fast for you. You've had done so well to juggle studying and the kids. What are job prospects like in your area? What grades are you hoping to teach? I can't believe Liam is off to school next year - they really do grow in the blink of an eye don't they?

Heidi - sounds like your new centre is perfect for you. I'm sure they'll be accommodating of your pregnancy. In my experience good employers will always do what they can to retain great staff.

Not much happening here for Easter. We usually go away but feel we have enough going on at the moment. Although we are all having a day off on Tuesday to take kids to the Easter show in Sydney. Hoping it will be less busy than it would have been over this weekend. Kids are excited!

Heidi: WOW, what a surprise! Congratulations!! 3 children will be great, hard at times but still wonderful.

Ally: we are heading to the Easter Show on Tuesday as well! Staying in Parramatta overnight so its not such a long drive home after a long day. SO excited to go.

Mel: I love that you have almost completed Uni, you have done tremendously as I know how damn hard it is via distance with children. The end is in sight!!

Hi Girls, Thanks for your congrats.... But it looks like i'm miscarrying sad.gif I started spotting on Thursday & yesterday started bleeding like a period. I went to the Dr and she said the cervix was closed, but took another blood test to compare to the one i had on Thursday. Anyway Thursday's one was only HCG 139 which is low for 6wks & yesterday's was only 100. I have to go for a scan tomorrow to make sure, but it looks like it's a miscarriage sad.gif

Had a scan today & they said they can'tr see anything on the scan, so it appears i have passed the baby already. I said i hadn't noticed & she said it would have not been a very big clot at this far along sad.gif I am very sad at the loss, but it's kind of a relief also as i was very worried about the work situation & now i don't have to tell them anything.

Gosh Heid, I am so sorry for your loss. It sounds very much like my miscarriage between Jack and Hamish, which was also about 6 weeks. It's terribly unfair but ultimately I believe these things happen for a reason.

I hope you're coping ok xx

Thanks Girls xx

Ally, It's ok i get what you mean. I feel that it must have ended for a reason, that the baby just wasn't growing correctly or whatever.

So sorry to hear Heidi, hope you are doing okay.

Ally: Looks like my mum's op is happening the 2nd of may, dr didn't want her waiting until her birthday in July although she is still trying to talk him into it. Anyhow i was wondering if you know of any support forums or anything for aneurysms. Looking for people who have had a second op and how it compared to their first etc.

Heidi - thank you for understanding what I meant. It was certainly not my intention to upset or offend. Having been through something very similar to what you are experiencing I know how heartbreaking it is!!!

Bel - I only know personally 1 other person who has had an aneurysm and co-incidentally we have the same neuro - possibly everyone from here gets referred to the same one? She has been operated on twice (both very tricky aneurysms) and she is going great and is currently almost finished her study as a doctor (largely inspired by her experiences I believe). I've never looked into any forums because everything fortunately for me was straight forward and all follow up scans have been clear. My neuro has a great website and they might be able to link you to some support groups. I will PM you the link but I think your mums neuro has some association with this practice anyway so it might not be new to you.

Hope your doing ok Heidi!! x

Thanks for your feedback on the strider Ally! I have decided ill end up getting the Strider compact and get 2 capsules to fit that. Seems like the best choice when thinking about school runs and versatility. I really love the look of it! Congrats the house! It sounds really perfect!
Well don't with Uni Mel! You have done a fantastic job!
I hope all goes well for your mums second op Bel x

Posted 08 April 2013 - 06:57 PM

Glad to hear Heidi!!
Haha, I was hoping no-one would see that Mel! Serious baby brain happening as I glanced at your sig just before I wrote my reply.Going good thanks. Only real issue at the moment is eating. I have no appetite and get full very easy so just making myself eat what I can. I'm also hanging out for my hospital appointment next week to make sure there is still 2 (I'm such a worrier).
