Also a good way to think about it. Not getting the rest you need to strengthen your immune system can lead to a prolonged cold and more time out. Really you’re doing a favor for your company by taking today off 🙂

Is there anyone that is teaching from home and your students have returned to school? How did you get permission to do that and how does that work with kids in the classroom? I am guessing there has to be an adult in the room while the students are in there but is there another teacher during their planning or do you have to get a sub? Our reentry has been delayed and I am working with HR to try and stay home while students aren’t there but it looks like I’m going to have to take some Parental Leave once students do return because there is not a plan otherwise.

My partner is so sensitive, sometimes in the worse ways. he’s sick rn, and tbh it just seems like theatre, checking temperature, groaning, deep breathing (?) and I almost feel like it’s to get my attention. The opposite happens, and I harden up, get snappy, and just want to ignore him. I feel like I should be coddling him but part of me just feels like he’s either faking it or just incapable of handling discomfort.

So does the bloating ever end? 🤣 Also, a more serious question. Was anyone here eating at a caloric deficit before they got pregnant? If so, at what point did you stop?

I know some people tend to be sick for a lot of their 1st trimstester and end up losing weight anyway. 🤔

I feel horrible that I’ll miss 150-200 hrs this year even with a busy Dec. I’m a 2nd yr in a busy group, never turned down work and often volunteered.

Too scared to talk with partners/seniors at this point - nobody checks my hours regularly and they think I’ve been busy because everyone is. What can I do to improve the situation?
