Question.

Are you getting an LOA during your first tri? My doctors office used to have us ( patients) sign a form that stated that Pregnancy was not a medical condition...and would not give LOA's ..unless it was medically necessary.. he currently bought out the entire practice and I didnt have to sign the form yesterday.. I would like to have one this go around.. morning sickness soooooooo bad...

What are your thoughts..

LEAVE OF ABSENCE. For work...or an ILOA..Intermittant Leave Of Absence...having a tough time with being sick..or whatever reason, you can call into work and it doesnt count against you..since it's covered under an ILOA..has to be filled out by a doctor..I know several women who get them early on..and use LOA for maternity leave.

I knew someone who ended up taking half days during her first trimester into her second due to extreme morning sickness. She did this for 6 weeks i believe. She just couldnt get through a full 8 hour shift. Good luck i hope all works out for you.
