@tulip and mini eggs so pleased fr you both its all getting very exciting now!
@ruby will keep fingers crossed for you, my gender scan is the following saturday and I would like another dd but then would be nice to have a boy as only have one little girl so not really too fussed.
@minieggs I told work at 8 weeks cuz I had a bleed then and needed time off etc but they were ok about it and asked me straight away if I was going to be coming back : / hope your place are ok too
I'm 15 weeks today, yay!!!! Bit worried that I havent felt any flutters for a good few days now but am hoping its just that baby is too small and not anything being wrong, i've never worried as much about anything in my life lol.
When have we all got our 16 weeks appointments? Mine's is the 28th of this month
Hi all, I have told my head teacher and he was brilliant even through ive only been at the school since september. Relieved, it was announced to all at a meeting yesterday so ive had a nice day of congratulations and looking at my scan which was lovely.
Hope you are all ok.
Minieggs can't believe we are so close with our due dates. xxx
ah yes that's annoying ruby, cheeky baby!!
micromonkey how are you doing? so nice to have it out in the open at work isn't it x
@ ruby so gutted for you about the scan, baby must have felt in a cheeky mood! Hope you have more luck on Wednesday and get the result you want. Mine is this Saturday and I have a funny feeling the same thing will happen with me, i will be so gutted!
Glad everybody is getting on ok with telling work. Ive been in tears at work this morning cuz of how I feel i'm being treated since i told them. they were fine at first but then slowly theyve started picking at everything i do when they were absolutely fine with everything before, even gave me a performance based pay rise at the beginning of Jan and then this morning me and my colleague have been told that we will be replaced unless we start doing better, all just got too much and had a little cry in the toilets, now im just really angry that I'm being treated like that xx
Hi everybody, thanks for all your kind words made me feel much better. They sent me an my colleague on a course yesterday to 'improve' us (funny I didnt need any improving before I was pregnant) and at first I was dreading it as dont think it had the desired effect as the guy that was running it spoke a lot about our managers duty to us and how they can help us not just everything being down to us! So I have come in today and decided i'm just going to get my head down and not talk to anyone, my manager has barely spoken to me again today anyway, just over 4 months to go and I'll be out of here and I wont be coming back after baby has been born (thats if they dont sack me beforehand).
Luckily my aunty works at a big firm of solicitors here and she said if it gets to that point it would be clear to an employment tribunal that their change in attitude towards me only occurred after I announced that I was pregnant and seeing as it is highly illegal to discriminate against somebody in the workplace because they are pregnant then I would have major grounds for unfair dismissal, hopefully it wont come to that but we'll see how it goes!
It was crazy to hear all your stories of going through similar things as well, makeds me so angry that employers can get away with it despite the well publicised laws against it!
Anyway sorry for all my ranting it just got a bit much before lol! But on to nicer things, my private gender scan is this Saturday, really keeping my fingers crossed that we can find out because all I seem to be hearing at 16 weeks is people's babies being in the wrong position and them having to go back, would have just waited for the 20 week scan if that was the case as only got 4 weeks today until that one!
@ruby how did you get on today? Have had fingers crossed for you
@micromokey yaya thats great news about your gender scan, thats exactly a week before my 20 week one
Whats new with everybody else?
Big hugs rubyjavy no idea what more to say x
Minieggs, we wont abandon you
Tali_Elli, thats very exciting, do you have any gender feelings? you must be due right at the start of Sept, im due 26th!
tali, im glad you feel a bit better about work, you should definitely threaten them if they carry on at you because its just not fair. As you say just think 4 months and you will never have to return
oh ruby, sorry to hear you feel that way but im sure everyone wll be excited for you once you get further along etc. I always just think you get what you are supposed to have and think that when you are older you will have 4 girls who will all look out for each other and you too. And since having my dd i think girls are great
