Hi All, Glad you're all doing well. I'm fine, still no real symptoms. Slight nausea but crazy tired today, so much so I dont think it will be long till I head to bed.
Just wondering if any of you know how maternity pay and leave works? I know you can take up to a year on basic maternity pay, but anyone know anything about your work pay?
I'm just planning ahead mentally, not told my work yet! x

In the UK statuatory maternity leave is 6 weeks at 90% pay, and then up to 9 months at the basic rate which is about 124ish per week (subject to tax (and NI I think)). I think everyone in the UK is entitled to this so long as you've been with the company a certain amount of time when you fall pregnant. But your work may have a more generous scheme - my friend works for a large global company and would get 6 months full pay, but if she takes it she has to go back to work for 2 years after or pay back the amount.

Our government websites are useful for explaining the statuatory bit!

i guess 12 weeks when you see the scan would help put your mind at ease? x

Dont think my work will bw that generous, I work for a very small company. Oh well will have to wait and see.
Hope you're all well?
Stranjgirl, I agree with dreamer. I think we might all relax a little bit more once we get to 12 weeks.
Keep us updated Trix on the scan etc.
Thank god its the weekend....yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know, I can't wait for 12 weeks. Last night it almost seemed that the spotting was subsiding as the color was getting really light and close to normal, but then this morning I woke up to red!! It has now turned dark brown again and is somewhat heavy, where the past 2 days it has been just light spotting. It gets so stressful and has really affected my mood. I know there is nothing I can do about miscarrying, and if it is meant it is meant, but I hate waking up every morning to something different and not knowing if it is bad, or just my normal unusual benign spotting. Then when I see red I worry and get scared to go to work, as at this far along I assume it will be very bloody and painful and I work an hour away from home. I really can't wait til that 12 week mark...although if I am still spotting/bleeding I don't think I will feel comfortable even then. Sorry for the rant. Hope you ladies are feeling well!
