High risk pregnancy and doctors note for medical leave? please advise.


i need some widsom or a word from someone who's been in my shoes.

I'm only 5+4 days preggers and i'm a high risk pregnancy. *i HATE saying that* but for this purpose, i will.

this is my fifth pregnancy with no live children.
I have a genetic disorder that causes my blood to clot at a super fast rate.
i'm pregnant with twins.
my job is extremely stressful and gives me anxiety attacks.
i have asthma and where i work as a mold problem that causes attacks.


if you were a doctor, would you approve a medical leave of absence??

my doctor is going to call me back..and ijust wanted to make sure i didn't sound like a looney tune.

thanks ladies.

yeah high risk....blech..what a term...

i personally call it.. 'high need'

I once had to spell it out to a nurse why i called it high need and not highrisk..
i told her at this point, i didn't care how she saw it, i would call it anything to make her better at her job. she was an insensitive bitch and asked me why ithought i was high risk...no she said..."what makes youbelieve you're high risk, honey?"
know what i said?? I was a bit peeved at the fact she was soo rude and unwilling to book me an appointment with the doctor ipersonally spoke to about setting up an appointment i said:

UHHHH, are you fucking joking me?!!?

the fact i have NO living children and been pregnant 5 times???!

is THAT what you wanted to hear?!

....i dont even feel the slightest bit guilty...when i saw her inthe office the next day for my app i glared at her and she just looked away embarrassed of herself.

whoah. where did that come from? lol rant from hell..but sh*t...i had to let it out. hahah
