Ur not alone I rarely ring in sick because i just feel to guilty even if im really poorly. Anyway its sounds like u shud be concentrating on getting urself better and not worrying about guilt. Make sure u rest up loads today hope u feel better soon. Kerry xxx

i always felt guilty calling in sick in the first few weeks because of morning sickness i work for a very uncaring company, so i hardly ever did it, i was sick on the way to work nearly every day (outside my neighbours houses) i was sick at work the lot and they knew this but still made me work i regret it now when i think back because they have treated me so badly during my pregnancy so try not to feel guilty its only work at the end of the day!!! and if ur work it anything like mine what do they do for us????

i dont think its morning sickness, as im 31 weeks. feel bad cos they are a great bunch of girls. why do you always start to feel a bit better after you have phoned in? LOL

Colic & reflux! Help!
Hi all! My LO is 3 weeks & 1 day. Around 11 days ago, I recognised signs of colic and my HV confirmed she believed he was suffering with colic too. It always began at 9pm for a few hours. We changed baby bottles and began giving him Infacol. We noticed a slight improvement but he was still screaming! We battled on as Infacol takes a while to work. Sunday evening he began crying at 6pm and it carried on all night and at 10:30am on Monday, I took him to the doctors, still crying and screaming 😭. The minute the doctor called us, he fell asleep. She thinks he also has reflux so gave us infant gaviscon. She recommended us trying Colic cow & gate also. So, we began with Gaviscon and started Colief instead (the dr didn’t rate Infacol).. with the new milk and he slept wonderfully! The bout of colic that evening lasted 20 mins and that was it! Next night (last night), it came back with a vengeance. He’s screamed all night, he’s refused milk, he’s drank the odd 2oz here and there, he’s straining and crying, his legs and arms are wild, he eventually managed a poo which was brown and sticky! 💩 it’s now 10am and he has finally fallen asleep - in my arms. Ive booked him in with a chiropractor as I’ve heard great things and I’m still using colic bottles and Colief.. please can someone offer any advice. I’m at a total loss. I’ve not slept in a fortnight and I really can’t watch him in agony until this stops - in a few months time 😳😩
