My c-section has been scheduled for June 13th. My last day of work is June 8th and I work from home. I am really starting to get very uncomfortable now - I'm completely exhausted too. I do not get paid maternity leave or eligible for fmla - so its only short term disability of 12 weeks. I'm worried about money and stopping work to early - but am I pushing it now?
My feet and ankles are swollen - bp is normal and dr. says its just normal edema but still its uncomfortable . I can't get into any of my shoes/slippers at this point.
I seem to have about an hour of energy a day and I try to do what I can in that hour. Today I finished up the thank you cards from the shower and I could literally go to bed. But I start work today at 3 so trying to stay awake.
So ladies what do you think I should do at this point? Thank you for your help!
