    Hi Ali - wow i never noticed you were a youngin' and ive been following a few of your posts for a while. What a twit! Good luck with TTC a boy next time, look forward to hearing/seeing/etc your journey.

    Jess, i know how ridiculous is Centrelink! As if ANYONE will hire you when you already know you're pregnant... i didn't feel right lying to employers when i was interviewing and i know damn well pregnancy was what had me turned away... and i didnt start showing until six months. Besides, AWA's are so crap these daysi swear if you have a casual position they'd find a reason to sack you on the spot the minute you told them anyway. Gosh C'Link are right dumba$$'s i swear.
    Thanks for the info, i was a little confused...

    Welcome Jess Good on you for standing up to your ex! Just because he wants to be useless doesn't mean baby shouldn't have a chance at life.

    I think they must say the whole 7 week thing for women who are giving their babies up maybe? like if you've been a surrogate mother for example and wont actually be looking after the child. Still stupid to tell you, how many mothers don't end up keeping their babys, can't be that many...
    Yeah centrelink are totally useless, i've had enough of updating my yearly income to them so they'll pay me correct family tax benefit, i just way over estimate now and get whatever they owe me at tax time, ends up being so much easier. The less contact with them the better...

    Yay Ali, goodluck on trying for a boy! we were hoping for a girl this time around but fate gave us another boy hehe oh wells, i'll just have to put DS2 in pigtails or something, he's sweet enough to be a girl LOL.

    I should put some pics up, I seem to be the only person on these forums who has no pics.

    Welcome Jess and Ali!!!

    Well girls sorry to say but centrelink are not going to stop stuffing you around once you've had bubs..... it's just a fact of life i suppose! LOL oh and it's even worse for those claiming parenting payment single

    When i was 16wks pg with Brendan i had a threatned mc and was unable to work, had drs cert's and all. CL wouldny pay me the sickness benefit, they were going to make me look for work, and i said to them i'll go into the shop/workplace and say....
    " hi i'm sally and i'm 17wks pg centrelink has made me come and look for a job, even though drs have told me i am unable to work, can you please sign this"
    you know what the chic and cl said, "that's fine" LOL. Losers.

    Well Brendan is much better, back into his routine... well as much as possible for a teething 10 month old.... his bottom 2 came through 2 days ago and hes cross-cutting another 2.... 4 teeth in 4 days, poor baby. and poor mummy, stinky poos....just gross!

    Ash, hows is your mum keeping?? hope all is well... hugs.

    take care girls
    hugs
    Sally and Brendan xxx

    Welcome Katie, Liz, Jess & Ali.

    I agree centrelink is horrible, there is this one lady at my centrelink she makes life so much harder for everyone & i hate waiting in line so much harder when you have a screaming newborn/baby.

    jade - they were my exact words!!!! just cuz the babies dad is an idiot, didnt mean i had to get rid of my lil man! hes still going to have a great life, better to live i think!

    sally - yer i have said the same thing to centrelink, they just dont care... not looking forward to going in there with a week old baby trying to get the baby money!

    mo - yer theres this one lady at my centrelink that is a complete cow, back when i was all emotional and stuff lol, she wasnt going to pay me for some reason so i was screaming at her and then went out into the car and cried lol, then rang mum, went back in there and started crying to the other person i was talkin to lol... they just dont care

    well im off to do some shopping, and go to damn centrelink, if they want me to get ANOTHER docs cert to say im preg, they can shove it where it fits, i have given them 3 already!

    Hello & welcome Ali, good luck with TTC a boy next time around look forward to getting to know you better.

    Welcome Jess- my [email protected] PG brain didnt even think to tell you about this thread *d'oh*, glad you found it. Glad you gave bub's dad the boot, he doesnt sound like anyone you want to have around and your right just because he wasnt ready to step up and be a dad didnt mean you had to get of your little man.

    Ash- How is your mum?.

    hehe sounds good, i'm getting so tired of having things to do, i barely get a day at the moment where there's nothing to do, don't think i've relaxed properly in about a month.. or longer. It'll be tons better when christmas is over though, and i'll get DH to try and roster as few days as possible at work for the last few weeks so i can lock myself in the bedroom and chill while he watches the kids.

    sally - good to hear Brendan is better. Hopefully it'll keep up.

    Joanne and Jess - It's all getting really close for you guys!!! Good luck with the impending birth!!

    Thanks everyone for asking - mum is good. It's not exactly necessary for her to be there, but as i said, GH refuse to let her attempt a natural birth so Royal WOmen's were more than happy to have her stay. She hasn't had any further contractions, but she swears she will have them on the 21st (her tarot cards said so -!)

    So... I went house hunting again today, and in the process spent fifty bucks on taxis. God i hope one of the apps gets accepted just to make the fifty well spent. If you want to know more, follow my vent thread in the buying/selling/etc forum. It's long and confusing, but easier to update all in one thread.
    Need to have a whinge about by soon becoming non-existent christmas...
    Also worried about leaking amnio waters???? But that's a whole other thread...

    Anyhow!

    SALLLLY... I just wanted to ask, how are you coping? I know everything happened at once, and im not sure if there was another thread about it, so im just checking up... to you.

    Welcome Ellie
    Yeah no need to catch up, we had another random thread before this as well so there's be a lot of catching up to do. Good to have you on board.
    I have found that the easiest people to talk to, and the most responsive, and the ones willing to put up with hearing my crap over and over are the ones in this thread - especially Sally, Joanne and Nina, i couldn't have survived the last couple of months without you guys to talk to and keep me sane - so good move on joining us all here!

    eta - and tali!!! i couldnt for the likes of me remember who was in the old thread with all the newbies now!!!

Which it's normally DP like tonight for instance. I just looked at your due date. That's my brothers b'day. is your bubba comes 10 days earlier he'll land on my b'day:P

We've been pretty lucky with renting in Sydney, Albury and now Brissy.

    HI girls.

    Ok so this is big 4 me 2 put on here. have spoken to MCHN today after mothers group. It seems i have mild PND. The mchn was not surprised when I came to talk 2 her and yeah we talked for about 45 minutes!!! There are a LOT of things conributing to it some of which can be shard but others are very private within my family and are not a good idea to share on a public forum. The biggest thing is the issues we have had with DD2's weight, all the saga is in my blog and not small enough to retype.

    Ash that the tarot cards were wrong and the twins bake longer so they r healthier
