|Now this is a navy uniform, I would rock this!!|
Its ok. It's not bad. But its still kind of boring. I hate the private room environment. You spend entirely too much time alone. But I guess that also keeps me out of gossip and other such silliness. I just miss sitting with a friend for both of you to feed slow bottle feeders, talking about lots of things. I cornered a student nurse for 45 minutes the other day and pretty much forced her to talk to me.
I have signed up for a primary. A social work train wreck that should be hanging out for a while. Cute little thing. I can't wait to pass her to her mother for the first time today. What a buzz.
I am still not being sent to the ED. NICU is too busy. When they need me they are SUPER possessive of me, but they drop me like a hot potato (and at the last possible second) when they don't. I'm just glad I will be working. If I actually get my hours today (why am I writing this? I have to take a shower!!!) and my 6 hours tomorrow this will be my second full pay check week since I got off orientation. Not super reassuring. But with summer, it has been fun to not be working a ton. If I can get at least 24 hours a week I am breaking even. It's just with Disney coming up in October I really need to be doing better than breaking even. I hope to sneak in a little over time once the kids start school. (Max is MONDAY and Lily is next Friday.)
Now - here is the big problem. When I hired on I hired on to a contract. It ends at the end of August. This is a way for them to try you out, make sure that you show up to work, etc. If you follow the rules and are agreeable they hire you as a full hospital employee. You are still unbenefited, which is fine. I talked to them on the phone yesterday. They said they were going to hire me. THE BIG QUESTION:
WHEN DO I TELL THEM I AM PREGNANT????
All of NICU knows but resource is in another location. They have no idea. (Side note - this is my third job I started pregnant. Odd.) I have always found honesty to be the best policy. I want to tell her after she shows me the job offers for my permanent job. I know I don't have to tell her, but I think not telling is being deceitful. We are a profession of women. We have babies. It's not a big deal. What are your thoughts?
Now I seriously have 25 mins to shower. I really hope I don't forget to brush my teeth.
