Thats just it I've been up since 4am with a really bad headache especially with bright lights, dry nose dry mouth thirsty all the time (which means toilet trips times a million) plus I'm just too hot.
now im feeling bad for phoning in sick for my 8 hour late night shift. Ive never been off any of my pregnancy and im 24weeks.
just feeling crappy.....confused

you shouldn't feel crappy at all. and work will understand.

have you told your midwife about your headaches and being thirsty?

No need to martyr yourself for work, they will understand.

YY to not feeling guilty for missing a day. Work isn't as important as you and your baby.

Get medical help for the headache a tell them about the thirst - it's probably nothing, but better safe than sorry.

Put your feet up and REST. flowers

I had to come home yesterday from work at 10.30am as felt so shit.

Tried to do some work at home, failed miserably and slept for 4 hours instead!
