Well, today was my first day back to work since I found out (I'm a teacher) and it was pretty hard.

I haven't told anybody except for DH (naturally), one good friend at work, and my sister. I'm in my tenth week and I will have to do it soon. I teach high school and I also leave when I have to go to the bathroom (right across the hall). Yesterday was my first day with kids and I felt great. I'm getting ready to head out now. I ate a banana at 9:30, lunch at 11:30, and yogurt at 1:30.... worked like a dream yesterday. I think I'm going to be just fine. I hope everyone finds relief soon!

I have told my department head and one of the AP's, but not the principal yet. No particular reason why.....I don't really see her that much.

I teach fourth grade by the way and mine are good about when I go to the restroom too.

I feel your pain! Today was my first day back since I knew too! I was snacking all day long. Have you told your principal yet? I am trying to decide when to let mine know.

I teach high school too and my first period kiddos were asking why I wasn't drinking coffee today. They are so perceptive! I'm only 6 weeks so I told them it was a new years resolution.

I teach 5th grade and the bathrooms is quite a ways away so I can't really just leave them, but I do have another teacher in the room for half and hour in the morning and afternoon so I should be able to make it....hopefully!

Ah! I'm a teacher and I also have to go back to work tomorrow and I'm so nervous because I've also been on break ever since we found out and I'm so nervous! I get so worn out doing anything and have to take a lot of breaks. It's good to hear you made it though so I know I can do it! I keep telling myself that I'll just do what I can. I'm nervous about the peeing thing too! That's always drove me nuts about this job....that you can't use the bathroom when you need to but now that I'm pg it's going to be so hard!

I'm sorry you're having such a rough time. My first back to work is tomorrow and I think I'm going to be okay. I'm a teacher too and m/s hit me like a freight train just as the break started. However, I've been trying home remedies like lemon, vitamin b6 and hard candies. They work like a dream. I'm feeling pretty confidant about tomorrow. I hope you find something that works for you!
