Awww that's a shame. Hopefully tho if you're renting u'll find somewhere else soon enough. I know the feeling, we're going to end up living with oh's parents when our little boy gets here - not fun, especially fitting a cot into a garage conversion bedroom! Luckily ohs mums a childminder so we'll get loads of baby help...lol if we pay for it she says! x

This is one reason I won't rent anywhere. We are going to go into a hostel for a few months ( well I am ) then we will be able to get a council house. Much more secure. Not a great start in a hostel but the long term is better coz we will be able to buy the house after a few years.

So sorry to hear that funkymonkey.....its horrible having to leave somewhere you regard of as home....I hope you willl be able to find somewhere for your new family to all be happy in......
Elsbeth we live in a 2 bedroom council flat and even though there is a positive of it being large, the rent is reasonable and we do have the opportunity to buy it there is also downsides...... Our son who was 3 at the time had his room flooded last year and ruined all his furniture and toys etc and that was down to poor council maintainence. They didn't accept responsibility and we had to replace everything and his room is still damp because of this. Our bedroom is so badly damp that the water drips off the ceiling and our new baby is meant to be sleeping with us!!! We have been in touch with housing officer, local MP etc and to this date nothing is being done. We are serioulsy looking into privately renting if nothing is done before the baby is born even though I don't really want the upheaval as I'm 20 weeks already!!!

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
