I was bullied by a girl and she left but her mate in this
new place .
My back in ab bits have a pillow not working
spent the whole day crying have apt with doc on fri have been told he prob sign me off but do you think its 2 early ? What would you do
Im so sorry for been a moan I know I very lucky to
have a job I just cant handle this crap right now
Hi ladies need advice
Im so down
Do you have a HR department where you can ask for help ?
Is there any way you can go part time ?
Not sure about signing off early, I am off sick with a gastro bug at the moment and getting pressure from work to go back to work early but am sticking to my guns about taking the time to get better, the health of the baby and myself is more important
You need to talk this out with work if you feel you are going to be put under pressure by this girl's friend
Not sure what you can do about the travel as you are going to get very tired and three hours a day travel would impact on that
Hope you get sorted
I didnt consider getting signed off at all. I've been suffering very badly with my back which the 1.5hr drive I have everyday didnt help, and went through stages of being so so tired, but unless I physically couldnt make it in to work or there was some issue that meant I shouldnt be working (not just the usual pregnancy cr*p we have to put up with), I would feel guilty about getting signed off. I would have loved it, but couldnt do it!
I'm finishing this Friday at 36 weeks - taking 2 weeks annual leave before my mat leave starts.
Thanks Yoda ...
Its a load of crap they basically just throwing me somewhere
till I leave but in the worst place possible feel like like ab crap today Ill have early night see how I feel about it in morning
Ddint help that it was thrown at me today..

wow hokey thats brilliant fair play to you your very dedicated
I just been ridiculous as I said to Yoda it was thrown
at me today prob feel better in morning when get some
Oh enjoy your mat leave 3 days and counting YAHOO !
Can you not get on to the Equailty Board or Citizen information about it. I'm sure they can't just move you because your pregnant unless it's a Health and Safety reason. It doesn't seem fair.
They sound like a dreadful crowd to work for but they do need to be careful not to be placing you under a lot of stress
Here is a link with some info. not sure if it applies in your situation but at least you know your rights etc....
Have a good rest, maybe have a bath and as you say the early night
Look at your options about starting maternity leave early rather then later
Even talk to your GP if you feel under too much pressure but don't let anyone get you in such a state that you end up sick and stressed in late pregnancy
BTW, I will be fine, I will be finishing work around Xmas Eve, then taking a weeks holiday and then starting m/leave on the 4th Jan
- I've just seen a few women take advantage of pregnancy in terms of sick leave etc.
What I find with being pregnancy is that you have really really bad days and weeks and then you improve, and then it gets bad again, then better, and so on! You kinda get resigned to the fact that you're going to feel like sh*te most of the time
Jeez I didnt realise you were moved just because you are due to go on mat leave - no way can they do that!
I didnt mean to make out that I'm really dedicated (I've used up loads of leave taking days off here and there when I cant face work)
I have been signed off work since I was 26 weeks. I also commute to work 3 hours a day in my car, buses and trains are absolutely no use to me. I have slipped discs in my back and pinched nerves, and now, I am suffering from SPD I think, I can barely walk and going up stairs is excruciatingly painful. I like Hokey, feel terribly guilty, and I never for one second thought about being signed off work sick early, besides anything else, my brain is dying from lack of use, but I soon realised that I have to look after myself and my baby. The only chance i have of normal delivery is to keep my back as strong as possible and that means rest. There's no way I'd put myself through a c-section because of work.
Hi Ladies ,
Thanks so so much for yoru replies
I have had a lovely sleep and feeling a
lot better Im just going to go in
with head held high and see what happens
and see how long I can do it ...
Think the hormones starting new place
been thrown in like that just upset
the hell out of me but if I feel one
bit stressed then I go early ml.
You never know I might love it ha ha
Thanks girls really appreciate it xxxx
