    We are in mini CBD so it's quite dear but we pay to not have more than a 10 minute drive to work. Work life balance is important to me and will be even more so when we have a family. I'd love for @BeautyOfTheSoul to be able to be SAHM and whilst we might not be able to afford it with number 1 due to us both paying off new cars, her personal loan and wanting to save for a home deposit etc we should be able to swing it for the 2nd bub. We will hopefully at that point have no debt other than a mortgage. Who really ever knows what to expect in life?! Right now we could use our savings for a deposit but we need it for IVF so that's more important for us at this time 😊

    Living expenses are crazy at times. I'd love to buy a house but I've just been approved for carers payment which means I can only work up to 25 hours a week. Getting a loan on that will be near impossible.

    Omg I used to live in Newtown, Charlotte Street infact. I thought that part was quiet and lovely. Weve since moved to Grantham (Yes where the tsunami hit) and I love every minute of it.

    So update as well. Im a little sad as the doctor on Wednesday believes I've miscarried again blood test results after two weeks of *non af cycle* i kinda figured that It would be low again... its sitting at 11 for hcg... not fair its so close to 2!!!! Cannot have lovey time unless protected. Ughhhh... looks like I cant TCC untill May.

    Hows everyone else. Sorry I only got through half the comments.

    Ah yeah, that's not far from where I am now. Were you living in Grantham when the floods hit? We were in Gladstone at the time so didn't see how bad it all was.

    Sorry to hear you've had another MC Many hugs

    It sucks that your work is so drama filled CompletelySavvy - I dislike workplaces like that! Mine is becoming a lot like that and I'm sick of it. I would feel bad leaving during winter though as we get completely SMASHED here in winter.
    Good thing is it's only 12 hours a week! How many days is that split over?

    @Chunkydunks Wow those Toowoomba options sound awesome Waiting lists are just horrible in Brisbane. It sounds like moving back to Canberra might be a really good option, especially if DH can get the much needed surgery soon!
    2 days. Thursday night and saturdays 😔

    I was actually out living around Bribie Island. We were flooded in two whole weeks before the huge floods came in due to tides and such. Bubba boy was only 9 months I think, due to his refulx and colic I had him on formula still, had to get a tin airlifted in, was surprised how responsful the ses were as I thought everyone else had bigger issues than us...

    CompletelySavvy Thursday nights and Saturdays are the craziest!!! I work full time hours its exhausting sometimes but I find those are the two biggest/crazy filled days!!! I get to slowly work up to those days.... I commend you for even doing it! It'd be hard going from a nice calm week to straight into those shifts!!!

    Decided tonight that I won't put ttc on hold as "just incase he asks for my hand" could take a while.

    Also decided my perfect month to fall pregnant, early November. I know it doesn't work like that though. My body won't do what it's supposed to do. I wonder how far PP you have to be to get a doctor/FS to take you seriously.
