    Hi everybody, I'm new on here and was hoping I could get a bit of advice please! :)

    I have been working for my employer since the end of October 2015, when I started I was 12 weeks pregnant. In that time I have had 4 instances of sickness (a day or two at a time) due to things like morning sickness, chest infections etc. Last time I had a return to work meeting my manager was understanding but did say that anymore time off and they would need to discuss some options as I m still in my probationary period. I have had to take another few days off due to sickness and vertigo, my doctor advised rest as my blood pressure had risen substantially. I am due to start my maternity leave in early March, I just want to know could they possibly fire me?

    I was under the impression any time off when pregnant couldn't be used against someone.

    That's true, if it's pregnancy related it us not counted towards sickness.the,chest infection etc would count though
