    Well, the title says it all. I blogged about it all here and the only real update is that they're not going to make me abort.

    I'm currently feeling entirely at the end of my own resources. I'm going to have to fight with the full force of the law not to lose my job, and I'm not sure whether I have the strength for that. I'm not sure if I'll be able to breastfeed. And nobody can give me any advice because nobody's ever known this to happen to a pregnant woman before.

    I know there's nothing anyone on BnB can do to help, but just a few hugs would mean everything.

    Thanks.

    Hi Gracegrace, I'm so sorry to hear about your predicament. You must be terrified. What job do you do that they may try to get rid of you for your complaint? You would be protected under the DDA surely?
    Sending you strength and hugs.

    You will get through this because you are a lady (its just what we do, right girls).
    We are at our best and strongest and most unbeatable when fighting against the odds.

    Big hugs.
