  • thats something to talk to your doc about. if you dont get a chance to prop your feet up every so often later in your pregnancy, your feet could start swelling. if you are comfortable working then go for it as long as you dont have ne health concerns with your pregnancy, but always ask ur doc about stuff like that

  • Absolutely! You "can", but it's not ALWAYS possible, depending on the type of pregnancy. If you are relatively healthy with a healthy pregnancy, you should be fine! Good luck!

  • You shouldn't have any problems. I worked in the deli and as a cashier for my whole first pregnancy and I worked all the way up to 5 days before I went into labor and yes, I was on my feet all day. As long as you're having a healthy pregnancy, as PP said, you should be fine.

  • aboslutely, though it may be uncomfortable, your feet aren't pregnant!

  • I did, up until 4 days before she was born.

  • My sister is a nurse midwife; she did a delivery the morning she went into labor

  • You can, but may not be so comfortable. My sil, a nurse in Ca., says if you do spend alot of time on your feet invest in compression stockings. It will help your circulation and reduce swelling.
