Hi there, I am excited to announce that I am starting my second ICCSI cycle this Sunday! Our first cycle resulted in my now, almost 3 year old daughter. The thing is, last time I was studying, not working, thus my schedule was a little more flexible and I had no boss to question me. I landed my dream job and I've got one term left before completing my first year of teaching! We thought we'd be clever and fit IVF mostly into the September/October 2 week break, but my body had other plans. This means that I will have my second scan, egg collection and embryo transfer all in the first three weeks of term 4. Do I let my boss know why I need to take the time off? Or shall I be a little more vague? I don't want it to effect his decision on weather to keep me on next year or not. If the cycle is successful, I should still be able to work for the first 2 terms next year. I know he isn't allowed to discriminate, but .... Thoughts?
