The simple way is to migrate first, and have the baby after you get to Australia. Any other chain of events risks delaying, complicating or even cancelling your migration plans, depending on circumstances.

I thought your medicals were only valid for so long, maybe I am wrong. What if it takes a long time for the visa to come through, would you have to do them again?

In an ideal world you could send off application, wait a month or so get meds done, then start trying for baby.
It shouldnt be too long then after you will receive the request for the medicals- they will be ready to send off.
If you are lucky and fall pregnant quickly you may get visa in time to fly out without the airline objecting to you being too heavily pregnant.

If you do medicals without being asked and they expire (after 12 months, sometimes 6) then you do have to do them again.

Add to that the fact pregnat women can't fly after 6 months, and if the baby arrives after visa grant but is born in the UK, then you need to sponsor for a child migrant visa - you'll see that it's simplest to wait until getting to Australia before thinking about babies.

Dint be put off.............. I did it, yes i know i have to do things differently.... but..... I had the meds done (requested) same month fell at the first time of asking, then we flew out when i was 28 weeks and 1 day, no probs flying with Singapore up to 32 weeks so long as ok with the midwife, insurance is another matter, Indie was born here as a little aussie, the care here was fab.

The reason we did it this way was we didnt want to put it off any longer (not so young as i used to be) and we wanted to have Indie here just incase there was a problem which would have meant he was refused a visa, slim chance i know but not one i wanted to take.

So long as you are fairly sure your visa will be issued by the time you are 32 weeks then go for it, if nothing else it gets you out of packing, carrying suitcases, taking the kids to the loo on the flight....... i could go on and on. If you want to know more pm me.

Are xrays detrimental to the developing baby?

Only reason I ask is that when we had our xrays they just asked me if it was possible I was pregnant and I said no, there was no check....

Jac, we are going to wait until we get there, just in case there are any complications with me or the baby, although we'll probably wait a couple of years before trying - got to get lots more practice in yet!

thanks Lynn - youre an absolute angel. same here - we have 2 already but we dont get pregnant at drop of a hat (5 years between our 2 girls and ive never taken any contraception!!) our youngest daughter 5 today so there goes the 5 year gap theory!!! my husband is receiving treatment at hospital and we are both closer to 40 than we would prefer!!! ergo, i dont want to hang around!!!!

all morning i have been prearing a chart and trying to guess a chain of events visa wise (a bit like pin the tail on the donkey!!!!)

Im quite a way off requested meds (still waiting TRA result!!!) but i had considered front loading????

i also need to establish how long for STNI approval so ive got some research to do yet!

thanks for your positive vibes - really apprciate it!!

Sorry, do you mind me asking how old you are? (PM me if you prefer) only by the time we get around to it I'll be 34 or 35 so bit concerned.....

The radiologist who did our x-rays forgot to ask me if I might be pregnant until afterwards. He came up and whispered - obviously feeling guilty!

Jacs give Daisy a big birthday kiss from me and tell her all the best people are born on this day!

Do your research then go for it, whats the worst that can happen, you reach 32 weeks and your visa hasnt arrived, you put a stop on it and have your meds redone after the bub is here (or there as the case may be). I have 1 friend who flew at 32 weeks, 6 days after she got her visa and another who had her and the babys meds done when bub was 2 days old. By that stage it will just be a minor blip, ok you pay for 2 lots of meds, but sometimes you just have to live for the moment.
