Finding business a bit slow starting sice returning from maternity leave beginning of may. sad Hopefully things will pick up soon though! Miserable weather today so I hope it's not too bad for those of you who are stuck indoors with high-spirited LO's today!

Hi! Sorry for being awol of late but I'm totally shattered and getting huge and I'm only 5 months pregnant!

Speaking of which...HELP! I need some advise from you wise folk. I am getting myself into a bit of a tiz about maternity leave. I am losting mindees left right and centre since I said I was pregnant and now I'm concerned that my income when I go on maternity leave is going to be too low for me to get the full maternity allowance. How do they work out how much maternity allowance you get?

losting should say losing! Preggers brain!

sb77 I think they allow you to choose a certain test period in the last 5 months or something like that.
