In regards to the changes to Parental Leave payment there is a long way to go before it is legislated, and that is assuming it passes legislation. There seems to be a lot of backlash over the announcement so who knows what it will look like by the time it makes it through parliament. So...if you are entitled to the G'ment parental leave I would imagine you would still be ok for now at least.
@bbhope sorry to hear friends are judging you regarding your work situation. People return to work early/quickly for many reasons, the majority of those revolving around providing the best for their children, whether immediately or to prepare for their future. And afte what you've gone through to have a child, no one can question that your best interests are always going to be for that child.
AFM - had an obs appointment on Friday. Got some test results back. Mostly all good, no GD so yay for that, blood pressure was back up slightly but not cause for alarm. Fundal measurement was slightly up (but I'm overweight anyway so I guess that's to be expected???) anyway, she is sending me for another ultrasound next week to check babies size. So now I'm worrying I've got a big baby and she'll want to do a c-section and on and on the thoughts go. However, Ive put on barely 3kgs through this pregnancy (now 29 weeks) and at this stage some of that has to be actual baby weight. I lost nearly 6kgs early on in pregnancy so still weigh less than when I conceived. As a positive I get another good ultrasound to see bub.
Started decorating the nursery a bit and just had a call to say the cot is being delivered tomorrow so that kind of makes things a bit more real!!!!
Hope you're all doing well
