Hi everyone,

I've been looking at the forums for a few weeks now but this is my first post.

My name is Angelique and I am in my 11th week. Going for my first scan on 28th March!

About 4 weeks ago I had a bad cold, took 3 days off work and was alright but now I have a bad cold again Sad I am taking all the right vitamins and even extra vit C. I am due to go on holiday tomorrow and hope that the time off will help me to recover properly this time. I havent told anybody at work yet that I am pregnant so am worried they are going to think I am just a sickly person (which I am not).

I started my current job in January and so haven't even been here for my 3 months probation period yet *YIKES* so when I take days off for illness I dont get paid either.

Anyways, does anybody have some advice please? I guess worrying doesn't help Confused

Thank you!

Hi

First of all.. you do not need to have been in a certain job for a certain length of time to qaulify for maternity pay.. See

I have my second scan at 23 weeks on 28 March.. so you will have to keep me updated on how it goes.

Thank you ladies for your replies and support.

Enjoy the rest of your week and I will enjoy my holiday - starting tomorrow - and try to get as much rest as I can.
