Ok my baby is due on the 26th Sept. I work part time (30 hrs) a week but it's a temp job through Hays agency.

I've been here since 8th December.

Am I just entitled the the standard government maternity benefit or would the agency as my employer have to pay it??

Thanks hun, will have a read of that. I haven't told work yet as didn't want them to end my contract & it may go permanent in June although I'd probably be best to tell them but not yet I suppose.

How are you doing?

I've got the same cravings as I had whilst pregnant with my little boy - Chips, curry sauce with lots of vinegar & salt or salt & vinegar crisps.

I'm already showing, this baby is going to be huge the last was 10lb 4oz :eek:

eek - not such a baby bear!!! :D

Im fine thanks - and as far as telling the agent, if they discriminate against you for expecting you can make a claim for unfair treatment. Pregnant women are protected with all manner of employment law rights, so dont be scared! I think until you get further along best to keep schtum tho! :D
