It's crazy how some women don't have job security when pregnant...or even when TTC!
It really is eye opening!
I was so naive when returning to work after DS thinking that these issues were not commonplace anymore!
All of the mums in our Playgroup (12) had some sort of issue returning to work! 😱
Some it was just problems being able to stay in their old role or have part time hours others were flat out told return full time or not at at all!!! I was horrified and left feeling so angry for them! 😡
I now told everyone at work no kids for me that I plan to travel this year so stupid how you have to his something so exciting but they do say you should leave your private life at the door when it comes to work
Hi again ladies
I have been skimming posts but not really concentrating as I have an exam on Thursday.
I’m off to the Dr next Wednesday just to discuss TTC and see if I can apply to the birth centre again (I bled really bad after DD and had surgery and 3 blood transfusions.)
DF and I are considering moving to my dad’s for about 6 months to save for a house…so not sure if this will put a halt on the planning but I don’t think it will.
Good luck ladies and I look forward to contribution more to the thread
Well managed to sort a few things out after I huffed off to bed this morning so will be getting up for dance and to look for suits. He said he asked boss to find someone else for next Saturday so can taste test and had to remind him no the restaurant prefers that to be done on Sunday's when it isn't as busy. Here's hoping that can be accomplished.
Just want one stress down and onto the next lol. My dress has atleast surfaced and is being delivered to my parents house on thursday so fingers crossed it fits. I was fitted in and tried on a size 6 but am a 14 and cause the sizes are so small they ordered a 16 cause I said no to the 18 promising I would go to the gym more as my knee was going to get better, that hasn't happened either but oh well by time get fitted by an alterations lady hopefully back to what I was last week before I went all out and ate a pizza and gained 2kgs lol.
Might ring my family planning clinic up here to discuss the pre pregnancy tests as they should be able to fit me in quicker and did both of my implants.
Just got back from my Dr appointment which went really well. The Dr was so lovely (had an awesome regular gp but she isn't working ATM so glad I found another awesome Dr) getting blood tests done in the morning. She is checking everything so have to fast for it. Then we just discussed vitamins and she said to definitely start taking folate daily. She went through cycles with me and touched briefly on what to do when I am pregnant. She even said I could continue all my exercise just don't overheat once pregnant, which is awesome!
She also said when actively trying I should treat the time from ovulation till my next AF as if I am preggers ie cut out alcohol and things like that. So I'm super happy with my visit!!
Hope everyone else is well!!
Good to hear just rang our local family planning clinic to try get in there faster then with my GP and they said sorry no bookings this period ( a 3 week period) we are are only allowed to book that far in advance try the week after. Shame really cause if you are under 24 you are allowed to drop in any day after midday and they will accommodate you without appointments
Oh bummer that's annoying wobblermummy!! Hope you can get in to see someone soon!
