Did you work while you were pregnant?

(Or are you working while pregnant?)

What kind of job did u have? How did being pregnant affect it?

A question I saw just now made me start thinking about when I was pregnant I worked at a pizza shop. I was a waitress and handled the phones. Boy, all that walking around with a big belly wasnt fun, nor was dealing with rude customers while going through all those crazy-lady pregnancy hormones. The only good part was unlimited access to pizza. I'm surprised my son wasnt born with pepperoni for feet with all the pizza I ate lol.

  • Oh yeah, i worked up until the day i went into labor. I work at a Christian book bindery and I was still doing the regular work (putting books into boxes or filling machine pockets or putting books onto skids) until i couldn't handle it anymore so my boss let me do the repairs on hard back books that were sewn together, or put together memory verse cards by hand. in fact the last day i was at work a co worker (he's like 50 or so odd years) came up to me and said "you're going to go into labor today" i looked at him like "what??" and sure enough i went into labor right after i got out of work lol

  • I was a cashier at Walmart. I couldn't imagine not working while pregnant. Just sitting around and getting fat. I'd rather be doing something.

  • I worked at Lil Caesars. I was constantly moving but I wasn't going to quit just because I was pregnant. I only gained 20 pounds so it wasn't too bad. Fast paced job though.

  • I worked as a nurse in a dialysis clinic full time when I was pregnant with my first. It was tough being on my feet 10 hours a day and trying to squeeze my belly in between the chairs. It was really fun when I was having morning sickness and a lot of my patients didn't bathe and I had to smell them.
