My nt scan is costing $300 but there is a Medicare rebate. I'm in nsw so I'm not sure if that is why??
I'm confused! I have absolutely no idea why it's different in QLD. I was told the scan is optional and there is no Medicare number. Kind of silly if you ask me.
Oh, and I am absolutely huge! You can definitely tell I'm pregnant just by looking at me now. I'm trying to get through winter without buying maternity clothes, but with about 8 weeks of cold weather left I'm going to be busting out!
Smyles where did you go? I went to Dr Carmody, at The Wesley. It cost $290 and we got given the Medicare claim form. Not sure how much we get back tho. Maybe you only paid the gap?
My ob referred me to QDI. There is no Medicare number on my receipt, did you have one on yours?
I was thinking today about when I'll start my maternity leave.
Can any mums share their experience in those last few weeks leading up to your due date? I'd like to work Up as close as I can but another part of me wants to take some extra time as it will be my last chance to do things before the baby comes, even if that means just lying on the lounge watching tv.
I already have a 0 care factor about work. All I can think about is the baby hehe
I'm with you Motherwillbe! I worked up until 3 weeks prior with my first child, with number2 I think I'll probably do the same (which makes my last day at work 18 January 2012!) approx 26 weeks - already on the count down!! It all depends on how you feel closer to the time I guess. I haven't ruled out going earlier. You should be able to start your maternity leave anywhere from 6 weeks prior to the baby's due date. K
Thanks khutch. I'm due on 11 jan and planning to work up till 21 dec which is approx 3 weeks before my due date. Hopefully I'll make it till then.
