So I am just over 5 weeks along and I started having mild spotting on Monday. My doctor ordered a sonogram and some labs with instructions to go to the ER if the bleeding got worse. On Tuesday, I went to my sonogram appointment (first one – yippee!) then returned to work. During the sonogram the tech didn’t mention anything to me or show me any of the images. Once I returned to work, I met with my boss for a precheduled meeting. Low and behold an HR person was there too and they told me that my services were no longer necessary. I then told them I was pregnant, so I hope they felt somewhat bad. Needless to say, I was upset (gotta love a little extra hormones) and I came home and cried in bed for an hour. About two hours later I felt some cramping and went to the bathroom where I noticed more bleeding, which sent me into a tailsspin of crying. My Darling Husband, who is the most amazing man, rushed me to the ER as I was sure I was losing the pregnancy. In the ER I had another sonogram and this time the tech was chatty. She let me know that there were TWO fetal sacs implanted in my uterus!!! TWINS! I was able to get into an OB today and she confirmed that there were two. Crazy! I’ve been categorized with a high risk pregancy because of my age (39), the spotting, I have a lap band, and a multiple pregnancy. So now I am on bed rest for the next two weeks and I have another sono scheduled for a week from Friday. The past few days have been crazy and I am looking forward to the rest but not the lack of income. Has anyone lost their job while pregnant and been able to get another before delivery?
