Hi, I know that there have been loads of posts on this but i am just wondering if anyone has been signed off sick because if it? I am 24 weeks pregnant with 2nd and work know that i have been suffering with sevear pains in my hips- however they do't seem to understand when i ring in sick. I have been to the doctors and he has mentioned nothing about being off work, even though i have explained the situation to him about how i have to walk Amy to my mum's then get the bus to work and walk through the town center to get to my work place, BUT when i get there i sit down all afternoon answering phones which isn't too bad but when i get up to walk about i am in excrutiating pain, there is no haapy medium to my job, its too much walking then too much sitting down. I am in agony today i have been in bed most of the afternoon cos i am struggling to walk or sit, but i am dreading ringing in work tomorrow. I am so fed up!!!
