Hoping that got your attention because something worrying happened to me today! I went to go toilet and noticed it was unusually wet down there, so phoned a nurse and my doctor and they said it could be my urine infection but it sounds like my waters might be leakin :'( i'm only 16 weeks on tues. I'm going for an emergency scan tomorrow morning as they don't do scans here on the weekend. I'm so nervous i hope evrythings ok, well u probably won't get this until i've told you what happened anyway (it's 11:30pm here) but i needed to vent! ok i'm gonna stop babbling on now, i'm just very nervous....

Hope everything turns out o.k. Let us know on Monday how things are. It can be really scarey, pregnancy is a terrifying thing sometimes because we ar eso helpless with it, we can only hope things work like they should. I know every time I go to the bathroom I am afraid I will start to bleed, I look every time to make sure everything is o.k. :-( Sorry for what you have to deal with right now.

Hi everyonelow the baby is fine, im lucky i got to see him/her again, the baby has grown nearly 4cm in 2 weeks lol! The fluid levels are a bit low but nothing to be too concerned about i just need to take it easy and they'll be able to check properly on my 20 week scan in 4 weeks. No s_x!!!! lol but am feeling very happy n relived as i saw the heartbeat. They also said there could have been a small hole and a bit leaked (hence yesterday) but it heals back over quickly. However they're a bit concerned about how bad my urine infection is so waiting for results on that.

hi girls - hope all is well - i've decided this morning that i'm quitting my job and haven't worked out the details, but it probably won't be for too much longer... i'm nervous but feel a sense of relief... and am looking forward to working for myself...p.s., my boss is not thrilled ..

Glad to hear all is well Amy! Thats a huge scary thing, then having to wait for like what seems like ever for the weekend to be over so you can be seen. Glad all is well!!!!! OMG rb....that is a huge step especially when you are pregnant. What made you come to this conclusion? I think it would be nice to stay at home for a while....I for one am getting excited about maternity leave. Wanna hear something horrible though? My doc was talking to me in the beginning about the possibility of bedrest later on and I am almost crossing my fingers for it to come to that! Not something wrong with the babies, but the time off and actual doctors orders to stay in bed. LOL, So anyways rb, what are you going to do? You said something about be your own boss?

 

RB - May 9

i'm not entirely sure.. i have a few things i can do from home and my husband would prefer that i stay home anyway... i was only like 5 minutes late this morning and my boss and i had a "talk" - i know i haven't been working up to my potential, but i've been sick, then tired, then feeling like c___p from allergies in the past three months... so i understand... anyhow, he suggested a leave period but i think i might just leave altogether... i don't like being watched and not trusted when i'm working - so i guess i just made the decision right then and there... it'll be a big change, but i think i'm ready to go.... i'm really nervous still tho!

 

Robyn - May 9

I bet you are nervous, but I can understand your reasoning. I feel like I am being watched and stuff at work too...like we can help it though and as long as I work is cought up although not necesarily up to par, but all together cought up then leave us alone! LOL, as long as your hubbie is behind you and being supportive and you have other options I say go for it! More power to ya! Just keep us posted because I dont want to have to skip my fat a__s over to canada to send out a search party for your a__s!

 

rb - May 9

well i'll definitely still be on here - i'm so frustrated tho - this is not how it was supposed to go - especially on monday morning! - i just want to leave today you know?

 

Robyn - May 9

So from what I am understanding he is like not giving you the boot completely, but nudging you in that dirrection? If thats the case then screw him, especially when you know you can work from home and be fine! Also you will be able to spend all this time with the baby aww....how exciting. Exciting and scary are really similar when it comes to work. How long have you been there for?

 

rb - May 9

i guess you're right - i think i'm just stubborn and want to wash my hands of it all - i should be smart about it but am almost getting excited at the prospect of moving on... anyhow, i guess i will have to make the decision soon! - enough about this stuff tho - how are you feeling?

 

Robyn - May 9

I am surviving. Barely. Oh man today is weird though. Last night I didnt get any sleep! My bf had to work late so I had a hard time falling asleep without him, then he woke me up when he got home, then woke me up again doing something around the house being noisey, then I woke myself up because the stupid preggers nose was stuffin all up and I couldnt breathe...then slept through my alarm. So yeah, but despite all that c___p I am not to tired right now! But...I was so hungry when I woke up I thought I was going to throw up or die...it was that bad. So on my way to work I stopped at McDonalds and got a two hashbrowns, a large orange juice, and a fruit and yogurt parfait....usually surfices! No no no, got to work and got the same feeling and was like OMG I just ate! So I ate an apple....nothin....ate a bannana...nothin...so now I am sitting here waiting for a girlie I work with to bring me back a sub from quiznos....lets cross our fingers this helps. I have never felt so d__n hungry in my life!!!!!!!!!

Hey RB, if you really feel like it you could always take the paid sick leave, then quit. :-) Not the nicest thing to do probably, but then you at least get paid for your time at home for a while before you quit, instead of just quiting and automatically having no money. :-) Nice the way I think, huh. So I went to the doctor again today to have my blood work done. I will know on Fri. how it is. Fingers crossed. I am so scared of a false positive, those supposedly happen a lot if they are off on how far along you are, and I wouldn't be the least surprised if they are all things considered. Glad everything is going good with you Amy, hopefully it stays that way. :-)

good morning everyone! rb, I totally feel for you, I hate it when I feel like i'm being watched for every move I make! My work place is so relaxed for some people - the management! This guy goes for hour long walks in the middle of the day or extra long lunches and run personal errands in the middle of the day but I feel so guilty when I go out for 20minutes to get coffee. But anyway, it sounds like your boss really likes you and probably feels bad for having that talk with you first thing monday morning! The sick leave is a good idea though, still allows your income and you can get ready for the move. But on the other hand if you just quit then it's over and done with and you don't have to worry about when to go back, their expections and so on.

 

tara - May 9

Misty, there so many false possitives because the results of the blood work is done on a percentage system. I think the waiting part is so hard and agonizing, but you have to busy your self with other things so you are not thinking about it 24/7. I would have difinately gone for the next step which is the u/s if i had a high % from the blood test. But I just wonder why they don't just go for the u/s instead of a blood work and then u/s. You'd get a faster, more accurate result from that.

 

Misty - May 9

They did an u/s already to date my pregnancy, because of my m/c they weren't sure, and they saw nothing wrong there, so I am pretty sure everything will be o.k. Still a tough wait, anything is possible.

 

jess - May 9

tara.,,,,thats such great news, so glad-now just take it easy..........misty, im scared too....had my blood work done 2 weeks ago and have to wait til next week for results..........so anxious........rb i like mistys idea of taking the time off then quitting.........ha screw 'em........i have cut my schedule back to 3 days a week.........they are longer days, so i really only loose 5 hours a week, and my take home pay is about the same...i just get mondays and wednesdays off.............yay
