We have finally begun the process of the 176 application and are now looking booking at the medicals.
What i'm wondering is if any of you guys have had any bother with the medical part of it due to being pregnant. I am aware that the DIAC recommend that you do not have the CXR, but there is also a clause get out that you can sign and still go ahead with it. We have researched the risk, and it is a low risk to the unborn child for the 16millirads of radiation in a CXR to cause any problems past the 2nd trimester. I can also wear a lead apron to protect us both.
Has anyone experienced problems with the actual physical medical? I'm in good health with no medical history, but seeing as we have the most amazing bad luck when it comes to staying in this country I'm starting to get a bit worried, about things like low blood pressure and other slight pregnancy induced things.
The other thing I am concerned about is, if we are granted our visa before the baby is born (March 2011) will we be able to simply add him/her onto our PR visa, or do we have to totally reapply for it?
We are hoping to be granted the visa before xmas, as the other big worry is that it is an offshore visa and I will have to leave Australia and fly, which means that after 36 weeks it is a total no go!!!!!
Everyone keep your fingers crossed for us
Thanks in advance
