today we had a meeting in terms of my relocation to be out of the area in which the test stands are that emit the solvent.
i couldn't sleep last night and i think my nerves caused me to shake and have my heart pound for about 3 hours straight today, so i've been praying to God that all will be well (and it will) with the pregnancy, pleeeeeease help reassure me that this type of anxiety won't hurt the pregnancy.
anyway, what it came down to is they were willing to relocate me on the condition that half my work day is in the lab nad half is elsewhere... this wasn't good enough for me and i resigned.
my job worked with me, and it was a very civil meeting, they even stated that i must do what i feel is right for my baby, ALTHOUGH THEY DID try to make it seem like the chemicals were 'no big deal' and that infuriated me... neither doctor or geneticist gave me a "get out of here, you'll be fine" which is why my DH and i both came to the conclustion that me resigning is the best bet... i don't plan on going back to work there after i have the baby anyway so now we get a head start on adjusting to 1 income...
although i can try to go on unemployment. my boss was great and true to his word stood by me, i left on good terms wiht everyone and burned no bridges. i've known my boss' wife since i was in 2nd grade (kind of how i got the job and why i felt so bad leaving), she called me up to congratulate me on the pregnancy and see how i was -- also to tell me that if her daughter still had that position (got the position through her daughter, my childhood best friend who is now pregnant also), she would have wanted her to leave to, and she reassured me that i did not leave on bad terms, she also told me my boss felt awful that i had to go through this... i was emotional/crying in the meeting. i thought id be resigning today but it was surreal when it happend. i haven't been without a job since i was 16.
PHEW, that was a lot... now the drama is over and i can finally wrap my head around that im pregnant and enjoy it.
thank you all again for all of your advice and input through these past couple of STRESSFUL weeks.
