Dealing with infertility can exhaust all leave that has been saved up. Now that I am pregnant, I have been taking leave without pay half days to attend appointments every two weeks. I received approval from the superintendent and explained to the office manager what was going on. Well, you can imagine my surprise when after my principal signed my leave slip, the following was written: You need to schedule these appointments out of school if possible. First, I have to drive over 50 miles to get these appointments with my RE, then they have the same office hours as the school's hours. I repressed the urge to repond with: "No shit Sherlock- unfortunately, it's not possible douche!" I always schedule my appointments for the afternoon, so I only have to take a half day. It was really annoying, and it still pisses me off. Grrrr!
