    hi i am nearly 28 weeks, i had a scan yesterday and found out i was having a girl !!

    good luck for the future.

    I got mine paid into my account 4 weeks ago when I was 34 weeks. They then sent me a letter the week after saying my application had been successful, great system!! I had applied for it when I was 28 weeks.

    My wife applied for hers 2 weeks ago, and was told on the phone that there was a 6-8 week queue...

    Get on the phone to them, I imagine they have 'misplaced' your paper work or might just have forgotten about it! Make sure you phone them up and badger them as I am sure you can only apply for a certain time

    thanks a lot munnski, i have just phone them and they said to me that i may hear from them soon. when i asked when the men didn t know what to say as he don t know when

    Applied for ours 2 - 3 weeks ago and didn't hear anything so phoned them up to confirm they had the paper work and they said yes and should be account within 7 days. Was in the account yesterday!

    Good, smooth system from our experience but being the government I imagine it to be hit and miss!

    i tried... rejected on the grounds of not being a woman and not being pregnant.... countries gone mad :-(

    It's not time for me to apply yet but I would have thought it taken about 3-4 weeks. Looks like by time some people may get the baby will be here and it's meant to be money for 'health in pregnancy' supposedely to encourage better eating during pregnancy.

    i applyed the week after the 5th of april and i got it about 4 weeks ago
    keep getting wrong off hubby tho cos when i want somthing for the baby i say well i got the £190 for free so why you moaning he says i would of spent it 10x over if that was the money he kept having to use for my prams ect heehee but we mums NEED the cute things we see dont we ha
