Thanks everyone. I haven't told my boss & unless I really really have to I don't intend to. Lets just say that I don't get along with either my supervisor or manager & I don't find either of them to be at all approachable. They might be fine about it but I just really don't know. Also, I'm on contract with the Qld Public Service & they are now talking about more job cuts - I know they can't fire me for ivf/pregnancy but I can't help wondering if it will influence their decision when deciding who to sack. Given how unstable the Qld public sector is at the moment I just don't think it's worth taking the risk.
I just have to figure out how to get around all the time off - thanks for the tip Sandra, I'll have to find out if I can take some rec leave during my EPU/ET time - i know we'll be doing a five day transfer because of PGD but I guess I could take that whole time off.
I'm with QFG. I'll probably say something next time we go in about how upset I was today regarding being stuffed around. They also stuffed us around previously as they had to send our PGD work-up stuff to a lab in Melbourne - but then the Melbourne lab took forever to do it & would not give a timeline/were being evasive as to how long it would take etc. We finally manage to get an answer out of them & then we get stuffed around by people not communicating. I'm really over this.
