    I finish work on the Friday 31st May..

    But i went to work last friday and only lasted 2hrs! My PGP is getting outta hand and i was in so much pain sat down or stood up.. I work on a PC so standing and bending wasnt an option. I have a pillow aswell to sit on and still paracetamol just didnt help.

    Thing is im due back in 2moro for my final 4 days until Mat leave!

    I no work can start it early but thats only if im in my last 4 weeks which wouldnt be until next week.
    Im still in pain this weekend. And i dont want to go in tomorrow if it means lasting a few hrs and going home again!
    Wondering if i should self cert for the week or go to drs as they have given me sick notes in the past without self certing.
    I dont wanna seem like a dramatic cow, spesh as i only have 4 days left.. and just being 35wks.. But i dont think i can hack the final week :(
    I dont want to bring my mat leave anymore forward..

    Work are guna hate me!!

    Girlys what would u do??
    PGP is just to much :( xx

    If your in pain I would get yourself to the docs tomorrow! It's not worth it, at least if you get signed off you won't have the stress of calling in every day xxx

    Aww bless ya! I think u should get a docs note too. Or just phone everyday, at least u can relax a bit. I know what u mean about having 4days left, I didn't have long but no matter how long, can still be too long sometimes!

    If you're off for less than 5 days you don't need a doctors note, if I were u I'd call in sick & think of tomorrow as the first day of mat leave! I start mat leave at 30 weeks but have 2 weeks hol before so finish at 28 weeks....cannot wait!!x

    I no i dont need a sick note but my GPs do give it if they think ur not fit for work even in the 1st week.
    Id rather one as work get on my case.
    I have a weeks holiday before mat leave starts so mat leave doesnt start until 10th June even tho my last day is this friday xx
