I am currently 36 weeks pregnant due the 31st . I am a manager at mcdonalds. My supervisor is nice but pretty pushy . Even going as far as saying im scheduled on new years day and if I'm still pregnant i have to work or that's my job!. My question to you ladies is when should i take a leave. My pregnancy is high risk and I'm also a full time student. I'm trying to be a trooper but it's getting so hard. Please help me figure out how to go about this .

That was my original plan but i really am completely burned out . If i could get her to cut my shifts down but working these 10hour shifts are killing me.

Then I would do it soon so baby don't get stressed. But that takes away from being home with them longer after birth. Higs

Your right i never thought of it that way. I should just stick it out so that i can have the full 6 weeks to be with him.

Have your Dr write a medical note saying you need reduced hours or an early leave. Then they have to follow it by law. Make sure you make copy of it and document every conversation you have with them about it in case they try to fight you on it.

I don't know.  I worked until I went into labor with both of my kids.  I didn't want to be home not making money if I didn't have to.
