Hey, there! Not to go into too much detail, but my husband and I are trying to start a family and I have some fertility issues, thus causing me to need medical assistance and frequent appointments throughout the whole process. The doctor wants me to come in 3 different times in January alone. I would try to schedule my appointments for after work, but we are a later school and don't get out until 4 PM and they're closed by the time I get there. I hate missing work, and I can take half days, but it still worries me to have to take off so many days. How would you recommend that I deal with this? Should I give my principal a heads up?
