So I went yesterday for my third out of five check ups (so as I get my maternity leave pay). I changed doctor's since my first horrible visit and have a much nicer lady now. She gave me a slip of paper and told me to go make an appointment for an ultrasound which I also need from the IMSS before they will grant the maternity leave. So we go downstairs and were told we have to go back in the mornings to make appointments, between 8.30am and 4pm. Ok, so we got up early this morning, go to make the appointment and get told that they have none til the 22nd Oct!! erm my baby is due at the end of Oct - will they not give me leave until a few days before my due date then ? :shock: (visions of going into labour whilst sitting at my desk at work)! Turns out they accept ultrasounds done elsewhere so I will just take next week's pictures with me to my next IMSS appointment. I just thought it was pretty funny that they don't have space until a week before my baby is due! :lol: IMSS, gotta luv it!
