Important please answer! I bet no one's asked this before hah!

I'm 33 weeks prego and really tired. My job is collections and I work full time. It gets stressful and repetitive. They don't count any of my absenses against me becuase I'm pregnant, but I still feel bad calling in with just "I'm too tired".

Any good reasons to call out while pregnant?

  • When you are pregnant, you don't need an excuse! lol, I used to feel bad about calling in if I just couldn't handle it that particular day, but I got over it.

    You can always use the typical excuses: I haven't been able to leave the toilet all night, I have been puking since 4 o'clock this morning, I caught that bug that has been going around, etc. etc.

  • I was the same way!! I felt like my work ethic had gone out the window and I couldn't catch it! Instead of saying I couldn't come in, I started coming in at 10 instead of 8.

  • Your legs are so swollen you think they will burst if you walk on them! And then you could say you need to keep them up and rest!

  • throwing up, cramping, doc appointment, back hurts, feet and legs swollen, diariah, and bed rest are the pregnancy things that no one will argue with you about
