I had 2 weeks left at work before starting annual leave to take me up to mat leave in mid July. I just couldn't see how I could work given that at the moment I have basically been taking Zoe to and from school and spending the rest of the time in bed. I get out of breath just walking up the stairs, dizzy etc.
Went to the dr today and was a bit anxious as could only get an appt with one who I hadn't found very sympathetic when i had to see him before (totally unpregnancy related) however today he was a star and basically signed me off for 3 weeks. I was so worried about asking but he didn't even bat an eyelid especially when he found out that I have a 2 hr commute, need to start at 7am and don't finish until 3pm. He laughed at the thought of me doing it.
So that is me done. No more work until July 2014, probably August by the time I use up my accrued leave. Woo hoo. Just wish I didn't have to struggle on like this for another 9 weeks ... that seems a very long time at the moment.

At least you only have to waddle to the bottom of the garden, although I bet your boss is hard work ;-)

Your so lucky! Hope you get some sunshine to enjoy!
Our lift was out today and I felt about 90 the time I got to the second floor!

Very true! Just any time off would be nice. I reckon I'll be working from my hospital bed!
