Don’t know what to do anymore
Answered 1 year ago
I’m in a bit of a mess and don’t know what to do. I’m currently 7 weeks pregnant, have awful morning sickness, dizziness (sometimes with fainting) anemia and horribly depressed.
I’m in a fairly new relationship and have a 6 year old daughter from my previous marriage.
Being so unwell I’ve been taking a fair amount of time off work, I’m in management and have approached my higher ups about possibly reducing my hours as I feel terrible calling in sick all the time, but they would rather not do that apparently until my contract is up (in around 6 weeks) and then if I choose not to sign another I could cut down my hours and go back to casual, but I honestly don’t know how I’m going to get through the next 6 weeks. I had HG with my first and can feel myself getting sicker every day. I feel so miserable and stressed and honestly some days just feel like quitting. I don’t know what to do or what my options are really, I can’t really afford not to bring some money in but I physically can’t drag myself away from the toilet some days.
Have an answer?
Theres also maxalon, stemetil, Mirtazapine, Phenergan, steroids etc
Restavit helps majority of women who have HG and it's just over the counter :)
I’m not sure what industry you work in, is there a union rep you could speak to for advice?
What about leave without pay for a month or 2 until the morning sickness passes? At least that way you’ll know you have a job to go back to when you’re feeling up to it rather than quitting.
Good luck Hun, I hope this stage of pregnancy passes quickly for you.
