    Default Owwwieeeee

    Left work early today. I sincerely hope that it doesn't become routine. I have two weeks left until my due date, my boss has me on the schedule all week next week, but the next week (my due week) is up in the air. I'm not due until Friday, so we'll see. I told him ...I hate to be a pain, but I'm not taking vacation for the "unknown" time. I just don't have enough vaca to DO that. Yes, I have some left...but I've been adding hours here and there to make up for me leaving early when I feel like poo, so I have enough for the first week of STD and then maybe another 30 hours.

    Anyway, everything hurts today. I feel like crap as well. I hope I'm not getting sick. When I stand up, it's like this huge amount of pressure down there...I have to stand there a few seconds before I start to walk and those first few steps are excruciating. When I pee, it feels like ... well, it feels like I'm "open" although I know it's not. I'm getting a lot of "Weebles wobble but they don't fall down" jokes at work because I'm wobbling back and forth when I walk. I finally just started giving everyone the finger. But man oh man does it hurt today. I took some Tylenol and ...nothing. I know this is just gearing me up for labor, but I really really wish she'd come on. My boss has been excellent about letting me leave when I don't feel good - I always get my necessary work done before I go anyway AND I don't call in, but I just feel bad because I still have TWO weeks left! I can't leave early EVERYDAY! Hopefully this is just today... I'm hoping if I rest up I'll feel better tomorrow.

    Or go into labor. Either would be fine. LOL

    you're doing aweseome at hangin in there! If you're getting the necessary work done before you go, then I wouldn't worry about taking off early, even if it's every day. You can only do what you can do and it sounds like you're really doing your best to hang in there. You're freakin Wonder Woman in my book.

    I SOOO don't blame you. I've never worked full time up to when baby came. With my first, I quit two weeks before my due date. With my second, I was babysitting only two days a week and the last week I had her bring baby to my house and I stopped early then too. I can't imagine having to go to work for 8 hours every day. It's good that you have a desk job at least though. (my full time w/ my first was a desk job too though!)

    ETA: Although I guess the difference w/ me is that I was totally quitting both times and not just going on leave, so I wasn't going to get paid either way. Anyway, hang in there, just do what you can do at this point.

    Happy 38 weeks Jessica! Your coming down the home stretch

    I know it's really hard to feel like you aren't doing everything at work that you normally would but remember this is a very temporary situation in the long run. You will be back soon enough and able to do the things you were before. Hope you can get some rest and have a good day tomorrow.
