I’m 25 weeks pregnant and completely exhausted. I feel physically mentally and emotionally drained. I have the normal aches and pains I can handle that for the most part but I’m stressed out my job is becoming overwhelming I work with a lot of older women and recently I’m not sure how but I’ve gotten on a coworkers bad side and now she’s turned like 5 other women against me and they’ve just been picking on me acting bitchy and trying to get me in trouble for everything they possibly can I feel like I’m back in high school (yes they know I’m pregnant they don’t care) and I don’t feel like my boss is on my side. I’m starting to feel depressed I wanna cry all the time I feel sad most of the day and my anxiety is insane I wake up at night with my heart beating super fast wondering what my next day of work brings I feel sick to my stomach my head is constantly pounding yesterday I felt so overwhelmed and defeated that I threw up my dinner and today I just haven’t been that hungry so I haven’t ate as much as I probably should. I really wanted to work as long as I possibly could but I feel like it’s taking a huge toll on me mentally I’m not sure how much more I can take before I completely just break down.
So I guess my question is can I go on maternity leave this early or take a stress leave ? Will I get paid? (I work for a big company that offers FMLA and disability) the next time I see my dr is at 28weeks exactly and I’m considered high risk so I see my dr ever 2-3weeks
