    is it too early to not go in?

    My work know I am pregnant and I have been sent to medical room twice last night from being sick so much.
    I finished work at 7am this morning haveing workied since 1900 (12 hr shift) and I am now up at 12.30 being sick!
    I am scared that my body isnt going to be getting enough sleep!
    I have been told to clal in sick if i cant come in and say its maternity related?

    But would it be taking the piss two days after I told them?
    I start tonight at 1900 and finish at 7am the next morning.

    Just dunno if i can handle being awake all night again and being sick every 5 mins!

    can i just ask,what job do you do??i think that will be a big determine whether or not you should go in,obv if its something quite manual where you'll be moving about alot its prob not a very good idea to go in.
    hope u feel better soon!it sounds mad but im actually quite envious that you have morning sickness lol, im 7weeks and have no symptoms so im sooooo worried ,could do with a tad of sickness for the reassurance!

    oh well in that case i would say dont go in if you still feel terrible,you dont want to be giving out medical advice then have to dash to the loo, lol not very helpful to anyone really, im sure work will understand, just explain that your sickness is really bad and you dont want to put any1s lives at risk,should do the trick :)
    good luck!

    If you get paid for normal sick days you will get paid.
    Where I work there is only statutory sick pay, which doesn't kick in until you've been ill for 3 days.

    what about maybe going in and if you are not well getting away? My friend is a nurse at a hosp and she did that when she was real ill... she had been off a while and then she thought she had better try a shift so not to leave them in the lurch...but her work were OK that if she felt like s hit she could just leave and go home (she was just getting over a kidney infection)

    I would stay home hun. You need as much rest as possible. As you say, if you tell them it's maternity related then they'll understand. Put your feet up, settle down with some ginger biccies (oh see if you can get some travel sickness bands, they really help alot of the time! Boots sell them) and get some well earned rest.
    This pregnancy business is exhausting in itself without being up all night puking!

    :hugs:

    hunny ur pregnant and no matter what job u work in Im pretty sure its law that you can take time off no questions asked and should be with pay. its not like ur skanking it off for a crafty day off. ur having a baby and they will understand that, so kick off ur shoes, relax and enjoy an evening off. hope ur well hunny. missing you but hope to see u soon ;) xxxxx :hugs:

    I really feel for you hun.
    You seem to be ill quite early too.
    I was practically bedded for 7 weeks this time, right up until 13 weeks.
    I hope you can take a lot of time of work, as you have a long way to go until 2nd Trimester!!
    Good Luck xx

    If you tell them it's mat related, by law they are supposed to pay you sick leave and it doesn't go down on your normal sick record.

    If it did, it would be sex discrimination, apparently, as men obviously can't suffer from this and we as women shouldn't be penalised.

    Hope you feel better!
