Ok, so I'm 6 weeks 3 days and have had spotting on and off for the las week and a half. Then yesterday was out with my husband when I just 'felt' that I had started bleeding. We rushed home and I had bled enough to go through my knickers, quite watery but red. Immediately assumed the worst and rang the midwife who basically said there was nothing I could do as it's the weekend and wait and see till Monday. So changed knickers and put on pad and since then no blood. One or 2 tiny brown spots when wiping. No pain or cramps of any kind. Still have pg symptoms (mainly v sore boobs) and positive test this morning. So I am now wondering what to do tomorrow. I'm an Early Years teacher and my school is short on cover so taking time off work is incredibly difficult. I really don't want to tell work that I'm pg yet, my head has made it clear he's not keen on the idea of losing me to maternity leave so I really want to tell him when it's actually confirmed and viable. I could pull a sickie but have never missed a single day in all my career, even when really ill so know that would raise eyebrows and lead to the 'are you pg?' questioning I get every time I'm even a little bit peaky. Obviously we have half term in a week so I'm almost tempted to monitor the situation till then and then go to the EPU on the Monday, when I'll be 7.5 weeks and morel likely to see a heartbeat etc on the scan. Am I mad? Advice please - I of course want to put my health and the baby first but am trying to manage that with a career where I know that being pg will be held against me and when I know I'm going to need time off later on. If I can avoid missing work unneccessarily now I'd really like to. What do you think?
