Re: Working FT & morning sickness

I sucked it up until just over 7w and then had a complete breakdown. Mine is not 'normal' morning sickness though but Hyperemesis gravidarum. I have been on sick leave until a week ago when I was put on extended early maternity leave (at just over 14w). Thankfully we have that option here and I keep my salary (paid by health insurance instead of employer) and benefits and my job is secured too. Even with taking 3 meds I kept nothing down and was too weak to even get out of bed many days so working was out of the question. I'm better now but definitely not doing well.
Ingrid, Mommy to Patrick 12'06 and Aurelia 12'08, Mommy to 6 angel babies-triplets 11'04, baby B 5'06 and our last little angel 2'12, chemical pregnancy 6'12, hoping our rainbow baby will join us in May 2013
