I think my schedule is going to kill me. The four day weekend was really nice, but my schedule this week is really rough. Tuesday was busy, as you all know from my last post. Wednesday I had to work 9-9, and I was stuck in a case until 9 PM. Today I was scheduled to work 7-3. And I had a robot case this morning, so I had to be in early for that. By the afternoon I could not see straight. Fortunately, my co-worker pushed to get me off early. I came home and slept for almost 2 hours. Apparently I needed the sleep. I felt good after my nap, though. I have to work a night shift tomorrow, which will likely be rough on me. I only hope that we are not too busy tomorrow night. Keeping fingers crossed, at any rate.
My schedule next week is not as bad, fortunately. No more call, at least. Thank goodness!
It is very weird being so open about being pregnant. But it helps me at work, I think. People will shoo me away from moving patients and doing a lot of heavy lifting. Many of my co-workers also try to make sure that I get breaks so that I can eat something. (Which is very much appreciated!) It is strange getting special treatment. At this point I am rolling my eyes and throwing up my hands. I still feel like I should be able to do everything myself. It also depends on who I am with. Some people let me do more than others. Overall, it has not been too terrible letting people know.
