Post subject: Sick again :0(
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 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

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.
