    Well that's pretty good then! All the reassurance of on-call care and a follow-up scan to boot. You've done well there hon

    Well, we had 4 appearances in the Family Law Court hon and didn't come anywhere close to that figure! All told, including lawyers, solicitors, court fees and documentation etc we were out of pocket for about a third of that. Still a lot of money, granted, but not as much as you've been quoted. Either way, hell yeah! Go the be-atch for costs since she is the one dragging this whole thing out.

    My guess is Ms PITA is going to back down anyway. After all, her legal representation wouldn't be free either, and surely it has dawned on her by now she is fighting a losing battle. Most semi-sane people would recognise when they're beat, especially since the Judge in your previous case made a big hoo-ha about "There is no issue here, stop wasting my bl00dy time!"

    By the way, I'm really thrilled that you, DH and DSS are all getting along so well. It's clear your Mothering instinct has kicked in big time and you are all just revelling in your new-found family life

    Actually, I bet that's what's fuelling a lot of Ms PITA's anger, you know. It's not just the fact that you got her man, but also that you have a little family now with her son, and she's not a part of it.

    Must suck to wake up and suddenly realise that you've made your own bed and now you have to lie in it. It could have been so very different. Still... couldn't have happened to a 'nicer' person.

    @winsor yay yay yay hun. So happy to read your news today xx
    @Summer your post brought a tear to my eye. I'm technically a sm too but don't have the chance to do much at this stage however I really hope to in the future. You're so brave and an inspiration to people like me. Enjoy your sing alongs xx

    Afm chased up hospital docs for lap for the fifth time and the FS mumbled that he sent them out but will do so again. Hmm I don't buy that. I don't have time to always chase this stuff up !! Grr.

    thanks, yes, I didn't even know about this service. the Dr suggested it to the nurse so I didn't have to pay for private scans. (which I didn't really mind having to do but free ones are even better)

    I HATE the fact that half the time if it weren't for us asking, nothing would get done. And sometimes it's bl00dy important stuff!

    Case in point, driving the 450km home from my transfer the other day it suddenly dawned on me that the blood pressure medications I was taking cause severe birth defects. Had my FS mentioned anything about my BP meds to me after my transfer? Had the Nurse? Nope!

    I had to drop into my local clinic for an emergency appointment, AND wait 3 hours in 42 degree heat for it! (Well, to be fair, I waited at the Mother Ship - the local Bakery which had air conditioning )

    My Doctor was appalled that they hadn't thought about the consequences. I was simply relieved that I HAD!

    Free is great hon!

    I got a free piece of cheesecake from the Bakery a few weeks ago.

    Happiness!

    free cheesecake is a bonus!

    I think the only downside is you can't book appointment times - it's take a number, sit in queue. but that's doable / OK too. glad to have them so close

    I had access to a free walk in early pregnancy unit in the UK for scans. They rocked! I just always arrived 15 mins before they opened their doors. That way you only had to wait a little bit with a handful of other women.
