trying to lodge my tax return.. anyone know how to put in the 20% claim that we are supposed to be able to ???
There are two glucose tests. If you are low risk, they send you for the 1hr test. If results come back with a high reading then you have to go back and do the 2hr test to confirm GD.
Can't help you there bow ties! We are going to see tax man Monday to do ours.
I had to go straight to the big 2hr GTT due to high risk (pcos and twins). Fast from midnight, one blood test, drink glucose, another bt an hour later, then a third bt another hour later. Boy did it knock me around! But must be done.

@Bow Ties Are Cool. Im unsure of your circumstances but if you did not claim the 20% in the 2012/2013 tax year you are unable to do so this year. If you did claim it in last yesrs tax return then it will appear in the e-tax lodgement thingo so said our tax guy.
we missed the claim cut off last year by 11 days and therefore cant claim any of the $11k we have spent in 2013/2014. Stupid government changed the rules
haha @Sparklemonkey we posted the same time!
I had the morphology scan today and all is going well. Our bub does have only the 1 umbilical artery (rather than 2), which is a shame - I was hoping they just couldn't see the 2nd one in the 12 week scan. I'm now booked in to have fortnightly growth scans at the ultrasound place throughout the 3rd trimester which is going to be $$. Luckily though bubs doesn't have any of the other kidney, heart or neurological issues that can be associated with SUA which is a huge relief. Here's hoping the little takka keeps growing right up to term and doesn't have to be whipped out too early.
I cant imagine how you ladies with twins are doing, I'm impressed you can keep working till 28wks.
And I'm with you all on the overeating stakes - I just can't stop. I dropped DH at the airport this evening and for the first time in about 20 years bought a maccas thickshake on the way home (I am not a big dairy fan - bizarre craving). Anyway I polished it off in about 2 minutes and then realised they are probably full of soft serve I'm now freaking out that I've harmed the baby. I'm seeing our obs tomorrow to discuss the artery issue so hopefully bubs is ok. Remember ladies think before you eat!
