It sounds like the secure unit attached to the residential care unit I was in. I did my wee bit of secure training at a mixed secure unit while the girls secure was being built . Quite right, you have to look after you and baby. I went off sick for two weeks today and it looks like I'm starting mat leave after that.

I think I'm being a bit of a baby.
I'm only 17 weeks pregnant. I'm thinking about handing in my notice.
I work in an EMI care home and I only work part time. But I work one shift where there's only myself and another member of staff on for 6 hours, another where I have to spend my morning in a shower room with no windows before cleaning my floor, and two sleep shifts.
Due to the residents unpredictable nature, I'm uncomfortable being left alone with them for any amount of time (the past two times it's happened I've been attacked). The sleeps require me to sleep on a pull out bed, which is absolutely killing my back. And the morning shifts are leaving me feeling faint and unstable due to the heat.
I've been suffering with back pain, stomach cramps and migraines already during this pregnancy and work is just adding stress on to it.

Am I just being a baby?

Hey hun I just noticed this old thread! God this was when I was pregnant first time round, haha.

Anyway back to your question. No your not being a baby! If you are struggling then no one at all can tell you any different. You know how much you are capable of and thats that!

I am from 2nd trimester
I work as a nurse in nursing home, 12 hrs night shifts, 7 days in two weeks.....
but thankgod I don't have to do any heavy lifting or any bed side nursing, pretty much all I do is giving medication and supervise staff, not much paper work either, PSW are very helpful, I am able to put my feet up at work so I am hoping I will be able to work till week before my due date....................So I can have full year off with my baby.....
