Surely you already know whether you are entitled to it or not? If not then check the eligibility rules here.

They are fairly slow to respond IME, but will most likely get to you shortly before your due date.

Hi I'm in the same position, 32 weeks pregnant and I sent in my form a few weeks ago. I called them last week and they looked it up on the computer and told me that my documents should be looked at on/by the 19th (Today) and I should get a letter in the next couple of days... If not I'll call them again!

Anyway, she was very helpful, but I'd give them a ring if I were you, 0800 055 66 88

Good Luck!
