Ahh so it’s slightly different. I will only get statutory, so first 6w full pay then up to 9m statutory as it’s less than i earn and last 3months nothing. Not great but still will be taking full year off. What about you?

I agree with Angela settled girl. I was always told have sex every other day leading to ovulation but a day or so before due and a day or two after positive opk to have sex every day.

Angela that's great news that she might get to go home and hopefully baby moves into a better position.
Yes so with tesco I get 6 weeks full pay, 8 weeks enhanced, 11 weeks half pay or statuary whichever is higher and then the rest is statutory. I will get a letter after 24 weeks that will tell me exactly what I get. Today we got our move in date of the 5th so today I've started to pack a few things like the baby clothes we have and been getting rid of things we really don't need. Going to take my spare injections and sharps box back to the hospital tomorrow which is making me a bit emotional.

That’s true, therapy is a good idea and I feel like it would help. I’ll look around for places that are near my college. Thank you for everything! I really appreciate it!

What a jerk!
Well you coupd always go to therapy, there you may find out exactly why you're feeling the way you do and how to feel better as well. And I'm sorry you feel that way. I hope you recover emotionally soon!

Thanks Settledgirl, she is still in hospital, her fluids keep producing and then she is losing them but baby is doing fine. She is allowed to move around, so it’s not complete bed rest. They might let her go home on friday, she will just have to take it easy. Longer baby stays in better chances he/she will have. Baby is also currently breach so unless he/she turns around she will have to have c-section.

If you can only have sex around ovulation then you definitely should have sex day of positive opk and the next day because you ovulate 11-48hrs after positive opk and sperm should be waiting there. Always it’s better to also have it before and after in case the surge is the false one. If you don’t track then you should have sex every 2-3 days as soon period is over up until pretty much it is due.

All my prayers are with your family Angela sending all positive vibes and hugs your way. And thank you ria !

Quick question which is really bugging me.
Am I TTC correctly so I've been tracking for over a year and I always believed that you had sex the days leading up to your blazing positive opk which I have always done and a few days after anyway I just read that it's not the days leading up to it from when you get the first positive opk but it actually when you get your first positive opk it's them three days including that day onwards.

So example I've got my positive opk today, and me and my other half having been doing the deed and we last had sex Friday night around midnight. As be had a flight to catch for a business meeting Saturday morning does this mean I could missed my chance ?? Normally I do it leading up to and after I just wondered if basically this month was out the window!

Just for teens / Re: Help I need advice!

Heyy, I know it’s a little bit late, but if you still need advice I got some.
Your friend has already told you/shown you how she feels about this guy. Unless you said you liked him first, she has “dibs” if you want to say that. You should try to back up a little and sort through your feelings. Try to shut down any feelings for him. If they don’t go away, you should try to stop talking to him as much or hang around him as much. If they don’t stop after that then you should talk to your friend. Not the guy.
Emotions are tricky hun, I wish you the best and you can always message me if you need help :)
Just for teens / Too young for sex??
« Last post by Mi-Time on March 17, 2019, 08:28:37 AM »
I’m 14, my birthday is next month and I’ll be 15. My boyfriend is 14 and won’t be 15 until September. We’ve been together a few months now and to blatantly say it, we’re ticklish. I really want to have sex, and I know he does too. We’re both patient and I know we can wait a while before we would actually do anything, but it’s at the point where if we were alone together and one of us brought it up, it could definitely happen. Age of consent is 16, so I know we’re young, but I’m falling in love with him and it’s something I want from our relationship. My only concerns are 1) definitely don’t want to get pregnant  2) are we too young? I don’t want to rush into this and make a mistake I’ll regret. I trust this guy so much, and I know he’d never cheat or tell anyone if it happened but I just can’t help think that we are too young to want this or do this.

I am openly encouraging any opinions and suggestions on the matter, just please don’t be rude. If you need more information then let me know and I can try to elaborate as best I can. Thanks!

I really couldn’t pick big/expensive items online. We bought a baby bed that’s 5in1, it starts as a bedside crib for cosleeping and it just extends and grows with a baby until age 5. We will be wanting another child sooner than that but the second one will get to use it all the way. Neither mothercare or mamas and papas had anything like that and for such good price!

Does tesco pay additional maternity pay on top of the statutory maternity pay?

Yeah the one in Birmingham is huge. It's the same place they host the clothes road show and the venue is massive. Too far for me to travel though so I've just been looking for good deals online etc and our mothercare is waiting for a closing date so I'm waiting for that to go get the last bits.

It's good that she is being positive it's still possible for baby to be born live and well at that stage so it's the best way to be. But yeah I agree when alone she probably is scared because it's still very daunting to go through.

My maternity pay is now being calculated so I have a very busy 6 weeks as taking as many hours as I can do. It's also the end of the tax year so if I can get a higher pay it means I will get a higher bonus. If I'm a bit inactive this will be why. Will still update you all after my scan on Friday and will be reading when I can just may not respond.
