Well, today i saw the geneticist, the good news is - there could not have been anything to effect my pregnancy in the short time that i was pregnant and in the area of my job w/ the chemical exposure.
the up in the air thing is, that no one can give me a definite "yes work is safe" answer, although - it APPEARS so... with one of the components there was 2 cases of miscarrying. that was all i needed to hear to make up my mind.
my job is aware that i am requesting to be moved from that department, i spoke with my boss and he siad he 'supports me 110%' which is nice, but he also warned me that when i go into work tomorrow (NOT in that room) i will be having a meeting with human resources and they are going to want to know if i am coming back AFTER i have the baby, because it looks like they will NOT want to accomodate me if not...
i think thats BS so i'm kind of thinking i may be walking tomorrow ....
one more factor, i needd to talk to my OBGYN because she may have an alternative solution for me...
so we will see, i'm calling my OBGYN at 4:30 when she returns to office.
Tell them you are coming back, even if you aren't.
It is illegal to discriminate because you are pregnant, and not switching you because they THINK you aren't coming back is discriminating because you are pregnant, not on anything you have done.

Mmmm, I don't know.... I'm going to disagree with everyone. I would be as honest as you feel you can safely be. If you lie to them here, what happens if down the road after the baby you're looking for a new job and they call this employer for a reference? It's not a good idea to burn bridges, and outright lying to an employer is not a good idea IMO. If they fire you for this, you have every right to pursue legal action, right? So what's the point in lying? If you don't want to come out and say you'll be staying home with the baby, tell them that you're not sure yet what you will do.
