    My hcg at 4weeks was 350 and progesterone was 27 and I had triplets on board at that stage so I don't think hcg and progesterone are a great indicator, you'll just have to wait and see!!

    For those asking about the baby bonus, it works like this:

    You get PPL for twin A (as long as you meet the work criteria)
    - this is the 18 weeks PPL payment which is paid to your employer and they take the tax out and then pay you in your normal pay cycle (weekly/fort nightly or monthly)

    You apply for the 'newborn supplement' for twin B.
    - this is income/means tested and you may or may not receive the full amount.
    It is paid as a lump sum of approx. $500 and the rest is divided up over the next 13 weeks.

    Your DH can apply for partner payment for two weeks but this is paid at minimum wage so it may be better for him instead to take paid leave from work depending on your situation. I am happy to be corrected but I don't believe he can claim this if he gets any paid leave for the same period. He could however take unpaid leave from work while receiving the partner payment and then following this with any paid leave he may wish to take?

    Can you do the claim for newborn supplement before bubs are born or is it an automatic payment on top of normal FTB?

    You claim it after bubs is born - you need 'proof of birth' form you get given in hospital. I don't think it's an automatic thing.

    You can do it all online though. It got processed fairly quickly for us (a couple of days?) as did the dads payment.

    Rah, absolutely beautiful. They look like babies no longer new born. How are you doing? How's feeding going?
