I'm talking about working full time up until labor. Or even up to your due date. And sometimes after!?
My job is hardly physically demanding or very busy even. But as the weeks drag by and I just get more and more pregnant my symptoms get worse and worse and I feel crappier and crappier. Its getting more and more difficult to focus, let alone drag myself to work every day. Even just sitting here for 8 hours, if I were to do absolutely nothing, would soon be unbearable. I am exhausted, I hurt, have to throw up, and am constantly distracted by the next crappy symptom that comes up. Each week is progressively worse.
I will be 36 weeks on Monday and fully expect to make it to 42. I only have 6 weeks of leave I was saving for postpartum. I am seriously doubting my ability to last 6 more weeks at work getting worse and worse.
So I implore you ladies, how on earth do you do it?? Because I need all the tips I can get. Thank you so much.
Love, a FTM who is trying to keep it together
