    Yeah, they gave it to me... Gave me the piece of the paper saying effective April ect and my boss just emailed me saying HR won't be paying it to me until June.

    They are giving me more ammo to leave than stay at the moment...

    Hopefully!

    I went to my GP last night to get all my results back from blood test and instead of referring me to a hospital she sent me to get my dating scan at a Diagnostic Imaging place.. Is that normal?

    Michelle your work sounds horrible. Hope you can stick it out so you get your maternity leave. I would ring HR yourself regarding your payrise. Always confirm things yourself when you can.

    No idea re scan I didn't have a dating scan only the 12w one
