I have been debating about whether to take any time off before the delivery. Part of me is jumping at the chance since I am exhausted. The other part of me knows my job isn't very strenuous and I'd be leaving a workload on my coworkers.
My boss called me into her office today to discuss my recent increase in bathroom breaks. She asked me if there was anything I could take to help reduce them. Duh... This is from someone who has never been pregnant. That said, I don't want to make pregnancy an excuse. I'm no different than any other employee, IMHO. But I don't have the patience to deal with the bull.
I saw my OB today and he didn't seem to have a problem with signing me off. Why is this such a difficult thing?? I don't want to piss anybody off, but I can't see how I'll be able to keep my mouth shut for another 3 1/2 weeks! I'm not planning on taking much time off afterward if I can help it. What would/did you do? Did you feel guilty about it?
