Ok so I have about 3 months left of my pregnancy and I work 40 hours a week. Sometimes more than 8 hours a day. I've been getting so exhausted by 3pm and my feet are starting to get more swollen and painful. I am on my feet all day (walking and standing) with 2 ten minute breaks and a half hour lunch. I've been trying to keep it together... and when I bring it up to my boss.. I feel like she thinks I'm just being a wuss. she was pregnant 2 years ago and went through it so I should be ok and make it. she also had her son early due to stress from work... ugh its so frustrating. I've only called in once since being pregnant because I was overwhelmed and had an emotional breakdown. I hate it especially because this one girl I work with has called in at least 2 or 3 times a month because she's "sick". when she has even told me that she sometimes calls in just because she doesn't want to work. I don't want to work at all anymore but ya don't see me calling in every month... sorry.. I needed to vent a little. its very frustrating.
