  • I didn't miss any days because for 2 of my pregnacies I was sick both times, for 3 months, and I would have been fired.

  • I only worked full time while pregnant with my first and I was sick allllllllllllll the time. I think I actually missed about 2-3 weeks of work in my first trimester. I couldnt even hold water down. I looked terrible too. Since I worked in customer service for a resort my boss was more then happy to let me take the time off then come in looking like I did.

  • I am 32.5 weeks along and so far. Just 3 days. One for my first appointment with the doctor (I couldnt get in for weeks other wise). One for my big 18-22 week ultrasound (again, I would have to have waited weeks other wise). and One for just not wanting to work. I was tired, had been up all night not sleeping and I said screw it and called in.

  • None! I didn't miss a single day, other than one where I had to go into the doc to be monitored! I made sure to point that out to my boss when it came time for maternity leave! :)

  • The only time I missed was a week and thats when I was really really sick. Alittle after that was just nausea.
