So had a 24 week scan and not much movement with my placenta preavia. I also started to have pain at front and sides of my pelvis so Dr is referring me to physio to avoid becoming worse as I also broke my pelvis at the age of 19 so guess it's only natural to have pain at this stage wth a multiple pregnancy. Sitting even for 10mins and getting up causes my pelvic pain to magnify each time. Lying sideways is the only thing that helps. Also been quite stressed 💭 thinking about making it to 24 weeks due to miscarriage at 23 weeks 8 years ago so it's all been building up and now have cold sores (big sign of stress and Dr confirmed it)
So a few things going at the minute lingering in my head so Dr immediately told me I need to stop working and gave me the Maternity form to take to HR at work.
So my question is, can I put any date on Maternity form, for say next week Monday or is there a specific time in which each individual company allows you to start Maternity Leave?
My partner and I have decided i am to stop work as Our first and only priority is our babies and know if we start sooner Maternity Leave is cut short but we don't care.
I am just stressed as I just want time to concentrate on staying stress free and keeping my Twins inside / let placenta do its thing and not think about work which is having a big affect on me.
My boss on the other hand is asking if I've been signed off but I've enough going on already and enough reason to stop work. Why am I feeling like I can't leave work now....Its time and Dr said I should stop. Annoyed 😒
Any advice welcome.... sat here with a huge top lip full of cold sores.... 😫 stressed 😕🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
Sorry ladies & gents!
