Hi all, At around the end of my first trimester, I ended up bleeding and went for another scan. The cervix has turned out to be shorter than it should be this pregnancy and there is a possible haematoma (collection of blood) showing up on the scan too. The gynaecologist in the area (I'm abroad atm) has put me on progesterone (tablets + injections + suppositories) as it looks to be a threatened miscarriage. Another thing she was absolutely abd completely adamant on, was bed rest. I've now been placed on the strictest of bedrest til the bleeding resolves and the hematoma shrinks. I'm back at work soon. Not sure what to do? I'm due off on maternity leave from December. Will work allow me to go off earlier than the recommendation of 11 weeks before you are due? Or do I now get a sick note to cover me for the next 2 months etc? As an aside, I'm halfway through a support plan which started before the summer hols. Don't want school to think I'm trying to run away from completing it!
