Apologies in advance if this has already been a thread recently/before but It's first day back at work for the new year and my head is all over the place. We are doing our first round of IVF Jan/Feb, and I've been reading my million pieces of paperwork and it says i will have to go in for blood tests and ultrasounds etc 3 days a week etc, and i am aware of day surgery for retreival and transfer of eggs/embryos - Having said this, I'm pooping myself about approaching my boss about this.
I work in a engineering company full of blokes, and my manager is someone whom i have only in the last month or so become a little more comfortable with. I don't want to shout it out from the rooftops that we are doing IVF, however i don't think i can cover it up with another medical story given that i will be late for work quite frequently and needing days off etc.
I'm so confused, as i want to do the right thing by hubby and I and also by my employer.. What/How did you tell your employer that you were going for IVF/Needed time off etc?
