Other than the increase in our weekly shop, I hadn't noticed an impact on us until of course I was made redundant!! Not many people are buying new BMW's at the moment so the dealership was really quiet!! So, I guess you could say that the credit crunch has affected me big time!!

emdt I think it is. My company policy was 6 months full pay, 3 months stat and then the rest unpaid if you were taking it. But you accrued holiday for the entire time you were off including unpaid mat leave. When they made me redundant they had to pay me my company mat pay, stat mat pay, untaked accrued holiday and then all the redundancy payments that I was entitled to the same as everyone else in the office. When you are put onto notice of redundancy there will be someone you can contact to confirm what you are entitled to.
I don't have another job, have decided to stay home with Neve while she is little so it was a bit of a gift really. I hope things work out well for you.

New to the game at 35.
Hello all. My husband just surprised me last week by saying if I wanted to have a baby he is willing to do so. He has 2 kids, 14 and 8, from previous relationships so for the 5 years we've been together it was all "don't want another ". We got married April 1st of this year. I have PCOS so I had accepted life without a baby of my own and have been on BC for most of my adult life. But now he has changed his mind and I am ecstatic and terrified! I threw away my last 4 active pills, which obviously messed up my cycle lol. So here we go to see what we can do. I cant decide if it would be scarier to conceive right away or for it to take a long time (if at all). I am on Metformin for diabetes (very well controlled, a1c of 5.4 last time checked) and I've been taking inositol supps for a while now just to see if they could help with other symptoms. Also started taking prenatal vitamins as preparation. Sorry for my long winded intro, I'm just excited. Thanks for reading if you got this far!
