Pip - not sure if I have said congratulations, so congratulations!! I had an emergency c-section after a loooooong labour and over 2.5 hours of pushing. I would wait the recommended 6 weeks at least. I waited nearer 10 because my scar did ache if walked too far or tried to do much in first 3 months post-section. Take it easy, you'll be back soon enough!
All fine here … managing some running although lighter nights just round the corner so might get bit more in over the summer, yay! Just back from lovely girls weekend in London with my mum … hubby survived a weekend of solo parenting and the house wasn't a total bombsite! Amazeballs!!
Interesting on coils - heavy periods and anaemia mean my docs are always trying to get me to try coil, but really don't fancy it.
CM - I have a colleague who works a rolling pattern over 2 weeks so not unheard of. During school holidays I also compress my week into 4 long days (Mon-Thurs) as well. So would definitely say that for the flexibility it might be worth considering ... its essentially why I'm still here after more years than is probably good for my career!!
Waves back TTid
Hugs Vixo. Its not easy keeping all those balls in the air!
CM - I work in a university full-time. They are flexible but where there is a business need then they have the right to be less flexible (and often are). Never any harm in asking though. I work in marketing so like Sonya can be pretty independent as long as what needs done gets done. And the xmas hols are real bonus!
Because Edinburgh schools have an asymetric week and finish at 12.15 on Fridays I compress my full-time hours into 4.5 days so can pick Megan up on Friday. My working week is Mon 8.30 - 6.30; Tues 8.30 - 5.00; Wed 8.30 - 2.30; Thurs 9.30 - 6.30; and Fri 9-12 from home. I'm forced to take half-hour break if working longer than 6 hours and I usually go for a run (advantages to working on a parkland campus!). I take Megan to school 2/3 mornings a week and pick her up from school Wed aftn and Fri lunchtime, and from afterschool on Tuesdays.
Waves to rest of girls on here. Hope TT and Sonya's scans go well today .. exciting to have some 2014 babies to look forward to!
Yep to night sweats here too - used to be just during TotM but now its the few days before as well. Delightful. Think I'm peri-menopausal too as also had menstrual migraines for the last 3-4 TotM - none of the over the counter stuff touches it (presumably because its hormonal). Ah the joys!!
