Ok so, work has me very stressed and I've been losing sleep, crying, having bad dreams, harboring feelings of bitterness and just plain upset.
In a nutshell, I'm a victim of office politics. I've been back-up for our team lead during her absence and helping out while she was even at work. The team lead got another job and instead of them coming to me to continue in her absence, they train my co-worker to do what I already know. My co-worker isn't a great worker, she just has a wonderful personality and the hiring manager really likes her.
So, watching everything go through her when it used to go through me is really pissing me off! She even asked me to teach her some things because she doesn't know it all...get real! I try to put it behind me, but I can't ignore it because she sits right next to me, so I'm constantly reminded of the situation.
I tell my Dr. how stressed I am because of work and the first thing she offers me is medication...WTH!!!!! What has the world come to?! I really don't want to be taken out of work right now because I need to save money, but I wanted to know what my options are in case work gets really bad. I don't want the stress to effect my baby. Finding out her taking me out of work because my stress is due to work isn't an option is also upsetting.
Why would medication come before the simple solution of a break from work? They shouldn't be so quick to put everybody on medication...especially pregnant women.
Anybody have any experience with stress during pregnancy and Dr. took them off work?View Thread
Congratulations! I know it's difficult, but it's important to not let worry steal the joy of pregnancy and the fact that your LO is in there being wonderfully made. This is a great time for you!View Thread
My sister's baby is healthy and wonderful!...thank God!
She just had a difficult time with the diet.
I'm really hoping I don't have to deal with GD...I think most of the things I eat now I will have to change and eating for me is already the most difficult part of the pregnancy...I don't want it to get any worse.
I'm glad everything is going well with you and baby!View Thread
I had my ultrasound today and got a chance to see my baby boy wave hello to me! It was wonderful! Of course, we recorded it, but I'm having difficulty sending the video via email.
Does anyone know another way?
I can't believe you only get 2 ultrasounds, so that was my last one unless I pay for it They should at least give you three...one for each trimester.
I'll most likely buy a 4D Ultrasound...DH will be here when I'm around 28 weeks. Do you think that's too soon for a 4D? I'd rather wait til around 35 weeks, but DH won't be here and I definitely want him to get to see the baby via ultrasound.View Thread
