I'm so stressed out...please help me.

Ok, well since I've been pregnant I've had such severe nausea that I actually throw up pretty much just blood. My employer won't schedule me at all so now we're stuck with just my fiance's income. We were wondering if there is anything or anyone that is designed to help people in situations like ours. We're tough people, we just need some guidance. My fiance is in the hole $700 and we have bills that need to get paid.

  • Throwing up blood isn't normal. Your health should come first. Did you get checked out by the doctor? If you are vomiting blood, I wouldn't want you to come to work either, it sounds like something might be wrong. If the doc gives you a clean bill of health, ask him what you can do to stop the vomitting and get him to write a note to your employer to show that there is no reason to be concerned.

  • You need to see you doctor about throwing up blood and I believe that if your hours were cut this much you can apply for unemployment.

  • Also, if your state has disability, you can try to get your doctor to put you on disability because clearly you cannot work.

  • As far as I know your employer CAN NOT fire you or lay you off for being pregnant, BUT he can say it was for another reason. As for the throwing up blood you need to see a doctor ASAP!!!

  • I had the exact same thing happen to me with the throwing up blood, of course i freaked out and went to the hospital, but it was because I was having so much nausa and throwing up so much, and hard.. it tears the lining in your stomach and blood gets in, and if you try to drink water or ANYTHING it is excrutiating. The pain goes away in a day and a half or so, if that is the same case as mine. But unfortunatly for me, it happened VERY often, hopefully u wont have the same problem Good luck!

  • Oh and as for employment, the same thing happened to my fiance, and he just filed for umemployment, if you are getting NO hours technically you are laid off ( which can be a whole seperate issue if u are pregnant, plz read about it!!!) and should be eligable.
