janey1234 re the job thing- that happened to me too!! Such a shame a I would have had a decent pay increase. I didn't tell them the real reason ie TTC plans.
Re the pet thing- I have a dog too, and I am SO waiting to have my dog and my kid if i ever have one to bond. I'd love for both of them to enjoy the other.

Morning all. I have this funny feeling that AF might be making her appearance soon..hoping I'm wrong of course, should see in the next couple of days.

Regarding work, my current company actually asked me during the interview (3 years ago) if I'm planning to have kids. Of course we all know they should not do that but they still did - I was 30 and re-locating to move in with my now DH, so I understand the concern. I told them honestly that yes, not immediately but in the near future, but I would return after the maternity leave. They hired me.

Wow I'm surprised at that hazle!

HazleNutt Thu 11-Oct-12 09:16:29

that they asked or that they still hired me?

HazleNutt Thu 11-Oct-12 12:43:41


So I've been using the internet cheapo sticks, did one this morning, also yesterday. BFN. Not even a hint of a line, nothing.

Went home for lunch to let the dogs out and thought that no, this is funny, but I feel pregnant. So did a Clearblue Digital.

Pregnant 1-2 weeks grin Not getting too excited as I had the same last month, but it didn't stick. So let's see how this one goes.

Lesson here - don't trust cheapo tests even if they claim to be really sensitive.

winkle2 Thu 11-Oct-12 13:12:07

OMG congrats!!!!!!!

winkle2 Thu 11-Oct-12 13:21:47

Lolcbcblemonlime Thu 11-Oct-12 18:05:33

janiewoozle Thu 11-Oct-12 18:48:52

Pipbin Thu 11-Oct-12 21:38:05

Congrats Hazle interesting that the CBD picked it up before the cheapo did. I thought they were hard to convince.
I got asked the same by my boss, again I know they shouldn't but this was when he was deciding whether to give me a permanent contract or not.

I live and work in Suffolk.

Rache1S Thu 11-Oct-12 23:08:08

Puppy photos should be on my profile smile I'm a week away from POAS and have zero symptoms so he's the only baby in my life at the moment smile
