    Hey guys,

    So I went back to work 2 weeks ago. Everything was going great but then the day I took all my positive pregnancy tests I went into work and ended up being assaulted :cry:. I was asked to assist in a restraint and I know it was silly but I figured that as I was only only the bottom end I could keep my belly out the way. It went a bit pear shaped and I ended up being kicked in the face and the ribs and carpet burned! I was really shaken up afterwards. I've been on holiday since but due to go back tomorrow and eesk I dont wanna :cry:

    So my dilema is now do I tell work I am pregnant? I was hoping to hold off until the 3 month scan at least but I dont think I can risk having to get involved again. I couldnt sit back and watch my collegues struggle either and not help! I guess if I dont tell them I am seriously putting myself and bump in danger! They have to keep quiet though dont they? What I mean is I dont want everyone and their granny knowing in work.

    Honey, tell them. As you prob know, I am a psych nurse and work on quite a hefty ward with a lot of challenges in that respect. I was 7 weeks gone when I told them as I didn't wanna be in the position, they didn't tell anyone but to be honest, people figured it because I was avoiding restraints and things.

    Be safe chick xx

    Thanks hun!

    I know deep down I need to tell them I'm just really nervous after just going back but your right! Last time I was 9 weeks before I told them but it was just after I found out.

    I'll just need to bite the bullet and tell my boss tomorrow.

    I think I will need to tell them, I just really thought I could avoid it until at least 12 weeks.

    Last time they refused to risk assess me until I was 20 weeks. Dont even ask, haha, they are murder!

    yeah it does happen regularly, not so much on nightshift but this kinda proves it can happen at anytime.
