Of course you can. Even when everything goes smoothly it's still a big adjustment. It sounds like you and Miriam are settling in quite nicely.

It is so hot in my office... around 30 degrees Celsius last week, and this week too. No AC.

Frankly, I can't get much work done and this week I have had to leave early because I feel unwell in the heat. My boss is on vacation but today I sent her an e-mail explaining how hard it is to work under these conditions. I don't know what she can do about it though...

I have some vacation saved that I wanted to use to rest and prepare before the delivery (end of September). I guess I could use some of it now, to avoid the heat, but I think I'll really need that rest and time for preparations before the little troll arrives. And I can't help feeling that it's not my fault there is no AC. Then again it's not my employer's fault that the weather is so extremely warm.

Feeling confused, hot and cranky. [Frown]

You could find you have grounds for a claim that you're taking time off for health and safety reasons. These FAQs from the HSE, and the other pages at that site, might be useful.
quote:
The HSE guidance publication, Thermal Comfort in the Workplace, seeks to define thermal comfort, and states: 'An acceptable zone of thermal comfort for most people in the UK lies roughly between 13°C (56°F) and 30°C (86°F), with acceptable temperatures for more strenuous work activities concentrated towards the bottom end of the range, and more sedentary activities towards the higher end.'
Of particular interest is the paragraph before that
quote:
Where, despite the provision of local cooling, workers are exposed to temperatures which do not give reasonable comfort, suitable protective clothing and rest facilities should be provided. Where practical there should be systems of work (for example, task rotation) to ensure that the length of time for which individual workers are exposed to uncomfortable temperatures is limited.
Which would, it seems to me from my total laypersons perspective, mean that your boss shouldn't complain if you adopt a more practical system of work - such as one where you leave earlier to be out of the office when it's hottest.

Don't cling to a mistake just because you spent a lot of time making it.

Would there be any milage in asking for a portable air conditioner to be bought for your office? We complained so much last year that we were allowed to buy one, it cost around £200 I think. It wasn't perfect, but really did make a huge difference to our ability to work (our office is almost entirely glass down one side, so behaves like a greenhouse in the sun - idiotic design).

I think being pregnant would give you extra clout, your employer has to be very careful not to endanger your health. If they can't do anything about the office environment, I'd have no hestitation in asking for flexible arrangements as Alan suggests.

I just can't imagine how uncomfortable you must be in this heat!

Bron - it sounds like you are doing great. I felt like my brain and body were both trying to wade through treacle for the first few weeks, it's perfectly normal to be overwhelmed.

Just take tme out as sick time if you need to. My employer was very understanding about this if I felt I couldn't work. At your stage I was so tird all the time even now I can not work out how I worked at all. Much better now and that is with 3 hours sleep max at a time.

Thank you all for your suggestions and support... The heat got to me so I couldn't think clearly about the problem. But my boss was very understanding, she called me up and told us to buy a portable AC (just like you wrote, Rat!) and one of the wonderful men I work with immediately went shopping and is now installing the thing.

During the weekend the temperature has dropped a couple of degrees, since we've been getting some much needed rain. So this week looks much better and I feel like I might actually get some work done! :-)

Glad you have the problem sorted light. I remember the aircon at work going off one time and two pregnant women um were very uncomfortable....UK houses and buildings are built to hold heat hence it feels a LOT hotter in the UK with the same temp.

Been to see the midwife again today - a bit bizarre as we both arrived at the same time to find the surgery locked up! We sat around for a while waiting for the staff to come back from lunch before spotting a sign saying they were closed until 3pm... so she had to use her key and let me in through the fire door!

All fine, heard the baby's heartbeat - I still find proof that there really is a baby amazing! - and I don't have to go back again till the end of Oct.

Oh, and forgot to add yesterday - the midwife advised me to take the NCT antenatal classes because they're so stretched we might not get NHS ones! [Eek!]

Apparently at 28 I'm too old or too young to get priority - never mind that it's a first baby... [Confused] [Disappointed] [Frown]

Hi all, just popping up on my lunch break to (finally!) say I'm also expecting [Yipee] ! I have been following people's progress with fascination for ages. I'm just over 13 weeks pregnant, which makes me due mid-Feb - the hottest time of NZ summer!

Keren, I'm also 28 and this is my first so I'm interested to see the similarities and differences between things in NZ and the UK!

We had the 20-week scan on Monday and everything looks as they'd expect it to. [Smile] The picture isn't as clear as the first one though.

I'm gradually starting to believe in the reality of the baby as something growing inside me (slow on the uptake, I know) but the idea of there actually being a third member of our family in January is a different matter. This seems sometimes to make me less excited than people expect me to be - I'm just dealing with all the weird things my body is doing and waiting for the "glow"...

And I still hate, hate, hate maternity bras. I've got one that fits and supports but it was £30 so I can't afford another like it [Frown] All the others have no support at all at the sides. Don't the designers have real people to try them on before they sell them?!

The lady in M&S was at about the same stage of pregnancy and she agreed too! She recommended their non-wired, padded T-shirt bra and said that it was what she was wearing. It's certainly a lot better than any of the maternity ones (apart from the expensive Blooming Marvellous one) so there's a top tip for anybody else with similar problems!

Yes I was not as excited as Ifelt I should be, in fact even now I still can not believe I am a mummy(of course I know but wow the responsability (and joy) I having to make decisions on her behalf, open her letters.
I think I was so sick during the pregnancy I didn't enjoy it and was surprised others said I glowed.

Hi Everyone!

I have to tell someone: I'm 6 weeks pregnant!
I'm trying to keep my mouth shut as a couple of months ago I had an early miscarriage and I want to make sure this baby wants to stick around before I share the news, but I'm having a hard time keeping mum, so to speak!

This will be baby #4 for us. I have no abdominal muscles whatsoever after the first 3, so I'm afraid I'm going to look definitely pregnant in about 10 minutes. And just this morning I had my first little shudder of nausea.... I don't know how long this will be a secret.

I'm thrilled, but every now and then I have this shiver of "FOUR KIDS! What are we thinking?" [Big Grin]

Thanks for letting me confide here!

I somehow missed the recent posts here and so I pinged Grits to ask if we could have a "Shipmates Expecting 2007" thread (which she has now started). I guess I was overeager, after waiting for many weeks to share my news and assuming that a new thread would be started for 2007 babies. Very embarrassed . . . but happy to learn about the other early-2007 babies announced here!

Congrats, Foxy and Captain!

And yay on the good scan, Keren-Happuch!

And easy labor to Mrs. Cedd, easy decorating to Cedd.

My 16-week check is tomorrow. This was the checkup at which my sister, in her first pregnancy, learned that her baby's heart had stopped beating. So even though there is absolutely no reason to think anything's wrong (heaven knows something's growing in there), I have a sense of holding my breath. I will feel better when this checkup is behind me.

P.S. She went on to have two normal pregnancies yielding the world's best niece and nephew.

I'm thrilled to be able to announce that Mrs Rigg is currently providing a nurturing home to the first Mini Rigg who should emerge into our Nitrogen/Oxygen based atmosphere towards the end of January [Yipee]

I would also like to ask for prayers for the two of them as Mrs R has a condition known as Placenta Previa. This means that the placenta is not in the correct position on the womb. She has the most serious version of Previa; the placenta is completely covering the cervix making a natural birth impossible unless the placenta moves to the correct location (around a 1% chance by all accounts). It also increases the risk to both mother and baby.

I am absolutely delighted to announced that Mrs Cartmel Bar Veteran (well she'll be my wife from 2.30pm on Saturday) is currently baking a couple of little Veterans.

We've known it was twins since about week six, but because things don't always work out, have waiting to announce until today.

Because today was the 12 week scan. Both both babies are well and we are expecting them to arrive in March 2007. You can see scans from today at my blog - the link is in the signature.

Thanks for prayers. Yes, a CS is 99% likely and although I like poker, I wouldn't ever bet on a 1% chance. There are other dangers including those that don't bear thinking about as absolute freak-occurence worst-case scenario. I'm feeling unusually full of faith about that though.

I'm going to go ahead and close this thread and redirect everyone's attention to the newer "Shipmates Expecting 2007." Thanks!

Belated congrats to Eanswyth and her family upon the birth of Robert Lawrence back in March! Maybe I need to read this thread more often so I know what's going on in the world!
