When are you guys going to tell work? I work in private security so I'm a little concerned with waiting... I already got into an altercation last week and was worried. But no cramping or bleeding so I'm assuming everything is ok. They are going to freak but I know legally they have to accommodate my needs and they can't cut my hours. Work and "getting to 12 weeks" is weighing on my mind.

Turtle I started a new job in July just before Ivf so worrying about telling them. Lol.

I'm gonna POAS tomorrow to check its still positive.

I was just watching hairy bikers and it brought me to tears. Not quite sure why? It wasn't sad!

OH is just running me a bath as hopefully it'll ease my aches.

I'm exhausted.

Oooh moving house how exciting. We get married in December and still alot to do! Eek!!

I'm not sure when to tell work! I am kind of nervous about it because I'm due right before our busy season! The company is too small to qualify for FMLA, so they're not required to keep my job. I guess I'm going to tell them at 12 weeks (or maybe sooner if I have to take time off work for appts).

I'm starting to save every penny I can now so I can make sure I will get enough time with the baby before I have to find a new job...just in case.

Is it over 50 employees for fmla? I think we might have around 90.. That's cutting it close! I've seen them accommodate for other employees that have had surgeries or injuries. So hopefully it won't be a problem... We have a dispatch unit and office jobs. I'm trying my hardest to save money for the baby but we are also moving in together and plan on getting married. His family offered to help with money but he is remfusing it. Men ...

Yup, it needs to be over 50. My company only has 22, so we're waaay off. I think if I just prove my worth, then I will be ok. I just worry that they won't give me as much time as I would like. I might be able to come back part time for a while though.

On a side note- I'm having my first weird craving! my last pregnancy I had NO cravings. Right now my mouth was watering for some pretzels and mustard! It's so good.

Hi Ladies, I'll join you all. I'm due May 14! I have an appointment on Thursday. I'm praying we see the heartbeat. Just like everyone else, I can't wait to get to 12 weeks!

Hi all! I was invited over. I still can't believe I made it to this board!

My name is Terra, I have been married almost 7 years, finally got my BFP thanks to IVF! We've been TTC for 6 years!

Congrats to all you ladies as well!

I have no idea how to casually ask something like that!

What are you guys going to do work-wise, will you be going back to work or staying home with your LO's?
I've been at my job for almost 9 years, so I just walked in and said I'm sorry I have another appointment on Monday (becasue I was out for a week on IVF bedrest after transfer) for an ultrasound, because I'm pregnant.

He got up and gave me a hug.
