It depends on your holiday year (what months it runs) and also how many separate absences there were (I.e. was it one period of 9 days or 9 separate days off).
If you google Bradford Factor calculator, you can work out what figure you’re at. Anything over 200 is generally monitored, over 500 may be heading to disciplinary process.
It also depends on the reason for the absence. If it is pregnancy related absence, then it would be less of a risk than something like “bad back/headache/cold”.

Averaging 3 days off a month. Depending on the circumstances yeah, it might be high. If it was 5 days for illness in September then 4 days for, say, compassionate leave in November then no, not high.
What's your work policy on absence/sick pay etc? Noone can tell you anything without relevant information.

My ds has had 7 days off school since going back in September. All for sickness.
September 2 days for a chest infection.
October 4 days in one week because of a stomach bug and tonsillitis which he got in the same week.
He missed another day last Friday with sickness.
I think it seems like he has had too much time off, but in reality he was genuinely sick every time and couldn't have made it in.
Last year he only missed 2 days in the whole year.

I think most work places would be asking if there isnt another adult who can stay with sick child. Usually time of for dependents is given if you have no notice of needing to be off such as child sent home from school or wake up poorly. By day 2,3 and 4 of childs illness you are normally expected to make arrangements such asthe other parent, grandparents etc.
