I feel like I might be pregnant. I have 8 DCs (yes, eight!!!) I do keep a positive attitude and cope very well but I am kind of thinking 'oh my god 9 kids!!?' I feel overwhelmed!!! Its not that I would hate to have another child but I feel so shocked and strange about having 9 kids! Its only 1 more but it is so close to 10...

This post doesn't really make much sense I am just overwhelmed

Bogey that is horrible sad
The same thing happened to us when I was pregnant with DC4, just before Christmas.

I couldn't sign on because I was pregnant so thank God for that maternity grant. Selfishly I spent it on food and heat rather than prams and moses baskets. wink

OH found another job after Christmas. I hope your OH does too.

Thanks all.

Yep, have included CT benefit in the claim (or I assume we have, it asked if we wanted to claim it so either it goes through with the claim or they will send us the forms separately). We have a low mortgage and the amount of hoops you have to jump through for the interest thing is just not worth it for the £20 or so we would receive a month, I would rather pay it ourselves.

He has has applied for 2 jobs already, and we will be hitting the internet like never before come the morning. The adrenalin has worn off now, and we are both feeling tired and a bit down, but atleast now the only way is up smile

We have a low mortgage too. We put everything in to it so it is fairly small now.

Its our only bit of security really since OH was dx with MS. My thinking is that if we lose our jobs or OH gets worse we will not have to worry about a roof over our heads.

The other stuff I will just have to deal with if it happens.

Oh bugger bogey what a shitty thing to happen.

Has he worked there long enough to be able to claim redundancy? The government pay it if teh company can't. It wouldn't be much but it's worth looking at.

Fingers crossed something comes up very fast. Even a temp thing for Christmas eh. sad

Yeah, he should be due a few thousand in redundancy, pay in lieu of notice etc. With luck and a tailing wind it would be enough to see us through about 6 months, if we are uber careful. The company hasnt folded, so they should pay it, but no idea if or when they will sad

Thanks for all the good wishes. Have crashed down a lot now, I think the adrenalin really has worn off. Feeling tearful and headachey.

Got to go and pick up the fucking goat tomorrow now too grin

Well if you can't laugh.....

Well make sure it's an HD goat, dont accept anything else.

I'm sure this is just a temporary thing, and you will be back on your feet properly in no time.

Well it needs to be a decent goat, it has got to set up the new flatscreen telly and take the kids to Maccies cos i can't be arsed!

rhondajean Tue 20-Nov-12 19:19:04

I have the feeling you are going to be fine grin

Bogeyface Tue 20-Nov-12 21:30:57

It will take more than this to break me. Although RILEY'S SNOOKER CLUBS will rue the day that they pissed me off....ooops, did I say that outloud?

bogey that's awful, hope things work out for you.

Can I borrow your goat to take a look at my flat screen, it blew up today sad
