I'd love to be off too. I've had to take a day's leave most weeks for the last while. I'm working long days today and yesterday and then I'm on holidays for over a week. We're going to stay with family for a while and then to a hotel for 2 nights, but I would be happy just to stay at home :-8 I've done absolutely nothing to the house in weeks and weeks, have some stuff to do for our business, and am feeling really overwhelmed by it all. I had thought that by this stage of the pregancy that I would be all organised - not a chance!!

mcglick would you be allowed to leave early? Babs is more important than work - I should really listen to my own advice too :-8 Day is nearly over now :xxx

why don't you take a sick day tomorrow. I had to do that one day during pregnancy as I literally felt like I did not know my own name as I felt so tired, sore, fed up etc and I must say that it did me the world of good. Before the day off I might as well not have been at work for all of the amount I was doing, sometimes an extra day off can feel like a weeks holiday.

I know how you feel mcglick. It does get better though but maybe you should just ring in sick tomorrow and put the feet up for the day. You'll feel so much better after some r n'r. Do you have any holidays planned before babs arrives? I would advise you to take a few days off also just to recharge the batteries. You'll need all your energy for the last few weeks as I'm now at the stage where I'm very uncomfortable and I'm on cloud nine if I get 2-3 hours sleep in a row at night.....just keep telling myself 10 days or so left in work :wv hope you feel better soon

If you get a cert from your doc that says maternity related illness its not normally classed as sick leave thats how it works in my office.

if you dont feel up to it dont go in, your health and baby is more important, take a day off and pamper yourself, i did this sat, went for a facial. it was lovely, i even find a pedicure relaxing, the massage is heaven, go and treat yourself. :thnk
