    So I'm off sick again today (suspected UTI) and I've spent the last hour sorting personnel issues about my maternity cover from my bed. Waiting till 9 then need to contact a few other people.

    Sorting out my mat leave cover is causing me so much stress, I just want to go off and not go back. And I love my job!

    my assistant tells me today her job is also going locally for more money at a higher grade, it closes tomorro and should she go for it...how as a manager can I answer that!

    So fed up and all this stress can't be good for the baby :-(

    I wanted to work till 38 weeks to make handover easier and it would benefit the service. But why should I put myself out when they won't do the same for me. I have enough leave left to bring my finish date forward almost 2 weeks at least.

    sorry for the rant ladies. I can't focus on the baby and looking after myself as this concern is all consuming! Which leads to a big guilt cycle.

    Xx

    Sounds like they're putting you under far too much stress! I'd defo bring it forward the two weeks if you can - like you say stress is no good for you or the baby and that's way more important than any job. I originally was meant to finish at 37 weeks (3 weeks holiday then official maternity started on due date) but as time went on I just can't cope anymore its far too stressful! I brought it all forward two weeks so now finishing next Thursday and I can't wait!! Xx

    Well one of my managers called me yesterday (i asked her to) and she told me off for working from home and not resting (in a nice way) they are not happy with my assistant contacting me at home either!
    But we have set a date for my replacements interview, and scheduled a meeting with all the big bods to see what will happen. So I do feel more relaxed now :)
