I work as a broil cook at a popular chain restaurant. I have always been good at my job, but lately I feel like either my health suffers for work or my job suffers so I can take care of my health. I am 3 months pregnant.
I have two other kids, and those pregnancies were relatively complication free, except both my kids came early (my oldest by a month, my youngest by nearly 2 months) For my first two pregnancies (almost 6 years ago) I was in school and then on "light duty" because of an accident I was in. I never had morning sickness or any other negative symptoms associated with my pregnancies.
But with this pregnancy I've been sick and tired and I feel like I'm flagging at work. I work for 6-10 hours at a time, on my feet over a 700-900 degree broiler with all the associated side effects (smoke and stress) All I read about is working with a desk job etc. Does anyone know about working a high impact job while pregnant?
