Being pregnant with twins is considered a high-risk pregnancy. My doctor told me that when I reach 7 months, she’ll be giving me steroids to fasten the development of the babies’ lungs and that she’ll be referring me to a perinatologist for additional tests. She also told me that twin pregnancies don’t reach the full term of 40 weeks and that if I reach 34 weeks, she’ll be happy.
Doctor also told me to be on bed rest until I reach 36 weeks and not to go out unless I need to go for a checkup. Because of this, my husband told me that I should lessen my work hours. He asked me to ask my boss if I could work at most 6 hours per day. Since even if I am on the bed working, I’m still stressed thinking about work.
I do hope that my boss would allow me and still consider me as a full time employee, but with lower salary of course. But if not, it will also be okay.
