    Wow Ruby you're all in! Glad to hear the sono just stuffed up. Sounds like you're in much better hands now.

    Ruby:
    I'm going to see if my OB will refer me to a specialist sonographer. I'm currently paying $345 every 3-4 weeks for a scan. Would love to have no out of pocket cost!!

    Hey Tugs, yes you can they didn't change the rules on that... so I can still be paid from work and get the paid parental leave. I know to some it might seem unfair but we wont receive any family a or b and besides this we will only ever get the child care rebate and they might even means test that on me too... We will only ever do 2 days childcare a week as my stepmum will have her 1 day a week and I work a day over the weekends and afternoons while my partner is around. We will only put her in 1 day a week from October and then 2 days a week from January... My work is so flexible I am lucky and to have family happy to help out too
    I will go into centre link today and get the ball rolling thanks for the advice

    @Barca07- they sure don't miss you do they?? I have to have a scan every 4 weeks too, and was so surprised that the specialist didn't charge a thing....was through the public system though as he visits once a month for clinics at the public hospital..... not nearly as flash as the US clinics and no pretty photos or CD's to take home with me, but I guess it's the knowledge and expertise I'm after now!
    @ttc1981- when you say they didn't change the rules on that- are you meaning paid maternity leave from ie 6/12 weeks or so + the 18 weeks from the govt?

    I only ask as I was reading an article last night re 'proposed' changes in the budget and one of those is that the govt will only pay the remainder of the 18 weeks that isn't paid for by your employer ie if you get 12 weeks paid from your employer the govt is proposing to only pay an extra 6 weeks (to make up the 18 weeks)......

    I am sooo confused by it all- we too aren't eligible for the family tax benefit A or B and if they cut the 18 weeks back I can tell you it's going to be a lean ol' 12 months for us!

    Ruby FYI a lot of (maybe even most) employers don't pay any maternity leave. Legal requirement is 12 months unpaid leave. They are under no obligation to give you anything.

    Mrstugs I think it's only if your workplace has under 15 employees, then they don't have to pay mat leave? Could be wrong that's just what I've heard.

    Anyway just got the all clear from my OB re my diabetes test. Yay I was so worried about it!

    Ruby16 how far along are you now to get the whooping cough vax? I forgot to ask my OB when I need to get it, I'm pretty sure he said around 30 weeks or so?

    @Hopeful37 I'm 32 weeks tomorrow- but I think you can get the WC vax from 28 weeks onwards- I just waited until 32 weeks on the advice of my Reproductive Immunologist and then the flu vax 2 weeks later

    Nope - no one in Australia is obligated to provide maternity leave. Govt may be different, I'm just talking private. 12 months unpaid leave only. Regardless of company size.
