I don't know how the law works or whatever in the US but I know a place can't fire you for BEING pregnant. But I've been having a lot of problems and have called out like 5 or 6 times in the past seven months, HOWEVER, I always have a doctors note. My main reason for asking is because I had to call out Monday for extreme cramping and today, after trying to deal with this joint pain for two days now, I'm getting really nauseous and ALL of my joints hurt. I have an appointment tomorrow but I really don't think it can wait.. I need some sort of relief.
