I'm exausted, my feet are swollen up like potatoes and I just had to kick my first patient of the day out of my office because I'm 26 weeks pregnant and he was getting too verbally aggressive for my comfort. My emotions are all over the place and I can't take a day off because I have to save every moment of paid leave for the 6 weeks of maternity leave I'm hoping to scrape together. Also, the air conditioning in my office is not working and I'm about to lose my mind. And I'm a therapist, so I get to spend all day pouring myself into the needs and emotions of others and I feel like there is nothing left for me. Thanks for letting me vent! These pregnancy hormones are really something!

It's hard to believe that there are professional jobs without paid maternity leave, isn't it? That's me, too. We have vacation time, unpaid FMLA, and that's it. I can have quite a bit of paid leave with a Novemberish baby if I save up, but only 3 weeks max with a January baby as I can only carry over 100 hours.
