    i think this is true - not that DS was overly difficult, but took 6 months of actively TTC with 1 chemical pregnancy and he is very easy (difficult sleeper early on, but very easy now), but DD was not planned and came unexpectedly after DTD 4 days prior to O and she is a right royal princess! Quite the challenge. I thought it was just girls, but maybe your theory is correct. Friends of ours took a long time to conceive their DD and she is quite easy where as their DS who came quite quickly after DD is the handful! INTERESTING

    So in summary, we are going to be made to work for it one way or another! Lol! The quote 'nothing in life worth having comes easy' comes to mind.

    This explains it quite well:
    Work test for Parental Leave Pay

    To meet the Paid Parental Leave work test you must have:
    • worked for at least 10 of the 13 months before the birth or adoption of your child, and
    • worked for at least 330 hours in that 10 month period (just over one day a week), with no more than an eight week gap between two consecutive working days
    If pregnancy complications or a premature birth have prevented you from meeting the work test, just let us know. There are some exceptions.
    Activities that count as work

    A 'working day' is a day you have worked for at least one hour. You can count periods of paid leave towards the work test but periods of unpaid leave do not count.
    If you are claiming for a child who will be born or adopted on or after 1 March 2014, you can also count any Paid Parental Leave or Dad and Partner Pay periods you have previously taken in the 13 months before the birth or adoption.
    You do not need to be working full-time to be eligible for Parental Leave Pay. You may meet the work test even if you:
    • are a part-time, casual, or seasonal worker
    • are a contractor or self-employed
    • work in a family business
    • have multiple employers
    • have recently changed jobs
    • have worked overseas
    If you work for a family business, you can include your hours of work even if the business is not making any income, providing you are doing the work for financial gain or benefit.
    The following activities also count as work:
    • employment at an Australian Disability Enterprise
    • operating a business while receiving assistance under the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme
    • farm labour or operating a business while receiving an Exceptional Circumstances Relief Payment
    • jury service, and
    • defence reservist work
    Periods of workers’ or accident compensation (or similar payments in respect of employment) can also count as work.
    Activities that do not count as work

    Periods of unpaid leave or voluntary work cannot be included as work.
    If your child will be born or adopted before 1 March 2014, any time you solely received government-funded Parental Leave Pay does not count towards the work test, even if it was paid by your employer.
    Activities undertaken for Work for the Dole (including Community Development Employment Projects for new participants), Green Corps, Drought Force, the National Green Jobs Corps and other income support programs that include a work component do not count as work.

    When can you get paid parental leave? It'd be of more use for me to have it before bub comes than after
