High-Risk Pregnancy

I think my working days are done...

I have GD, on insulin. I work nights 2x/week, 7p-7a. My numbers are good when I'm home. Whenever I eat at work, my sugar spikes. I worked all weekend, and my numbers were all wacky with my weird sleep/eat schedule. Today, I woke up and ate and my sugar was 182 after. I called to discuss my numbers over the weekend, and they want me to come in tomorrow...

Re: I think my working days are done...

  • You have to do what's best for you and your LO. I'm on my phone so I can't see how far along you are. I didn't want to be out of work as early as I was either. I really wanted to have a chance to meet my long term sub and get them up to speed. However, with a high risk pregnancy things don't always go as planned. This too will pass and hopefully we all have healthy happy LOs when all is said and done.

  • I'll be 29 weeks tomorrow. I know it's best for me and LO, and I have tons of sick time, so I'll get paid for a while, and we have savings for maternity leave, so I'm not terribly worried about it. I'm more worried about leaving my coworkers short, and the comments/reactions I'll get.

  • I totally feel your pain. We've been on break for 3 weeks and I got pulled last week. No one was in the district office, so they couldn't inform my long term sub. Plus, the first day of the semester is a little different as we have a weird system for students that aren't ours coming to our rooms to pick up their schedules. I know my department chair had to scramble a bit to help out, not because I wasn't prepared to go on leave, but because I wasn't prepared for a random sub in the first day of the semester.

    I figure if we are good at our jobs then its bound to cause headaches for others if we can't be there.

    I work in the same situation. Do not worry one single bit what anyone else says, you need to do what is best for you and baby. Do not feel guilty about them working short, that is the manager/supervisors issue to take care of.
